Romeo and Juliet!

are in love....

The Feud is what drew them apart and is what will be the death of them...


There are many people to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet but the family feud is most to blame. The reason that the feud is the most to blame is because if the family wouldn't of hated each other then they two children wouldn't have a had a reason to sneak around. The Nurse cried, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son if your great enemy.”Juliet whimpered, “My only love sprung from my only hate!...That I must love a loathed enemy.” (Act: I Scene: V )

This piece of evidence is good for the position because it shows that she has fallen in love with a boy who isn't a Capulet. Nurse said, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy”, and Juliet finally realizes that she's in love with a guy she cannot be with. So, this make them strive to be together and they would do anything to be with each other, like suicide.

The another reason the family feud is to blame is because Each of their families were very strong about the way the felt towards each other. So, the Capulet's were going to make Juliet someone that she did not love so she would rather die than be with him because Romeo is her true love.

The Nurse cried out, “I think it best you married with the county. O, he's a lovely gentleman! Romeo's a dishclout to him. An eagle, madam, Hath not so green, so quick, so fair an eye. As Paris hath. Beshrew my very heart, I think you are happy in this second match, For it excels your first: or if it did not, Your first is dead; or 'twere as good he were, As living here and you no use of him.”(Act: III Scene: V )

Juliet is talking to him about how she's madly in love with him but he is a Montague and they could not ever be together because they're supposed to hate each other and their parents/family would not agree with them being together.


Hairspray

The movie that resembles Romeo and Juliet the best is "Hairspray". In the movie, Hairspray, there is a guy named Link, he was born into popularity and was most likely going to be famous. There is a girl in this movie, her name is Tracy, now Tracy was the complete opposite, she was not born into popularity or anything and she only really had 1 friend. There is a twist to this story. Tracy is supposed to end up with someone but never with Link, while Link is supposed to be with Amber, who is another star on The Corny Collins show, but never with Tracy. Now, here is the twist, Tracy has always been in love with Link, and once she joins The Corny Collins show Link falls deeply in love with her, but they're not allowed to be together. In this scene that picked out it shows Tracy's mother showing up at a party where Tracy and Link are together. She sees them together and gets very angry, she then in turn takes Tracy home and away from Link and where they can no longer "be together". This resembles the love story of Romeo and Juliet because these to couples are not allowed to be together because of their parents but they still manage to be together and try and work things out behind their parents backs. Hairspray does have a happy ending because Link and Tracy are allowed to be together unlike Romeo and Juliet.

Song Analysis

"Lips of Angel"

The song that best resembles Romeo and Juliet is "Lips of Angel". In the song, it is showing that they cannot be together at all even though, they both want. This song shows that the family feud is to blame because they cannot be together at all because of family problems or something else like family. Well, "My girl's in the next room, sometimes I wish she was you. I guess we never really moved on. It's really good to hear your voice saying my name, It sounds so sweet" (Hinder). This explains my reasoning because it shows that they both still love each other but cannot be together.
