Teenager Angst

Teenager angst is a feeling of anxiety or depression in a teenagers life. This makes them feel like the whole world is against them or their parents don't understand/get what they are saying. Teenager angst is something that shows up in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet in many parts of this horrible story of two wonderful lovers.

First off during this Romeo doesn't show up until after the first fight. He shows up when they are about to crash the party. This is when he meets Juliet the one he changes his mind for instead of Rosaline. He doesn't know though that she is a Capulet. So that creates a problem in the story.

Juliet also shows teenager angst throughout the story too. this happens when her mother says she has to be married. then also she shows it when she's on her balcony speaking about Romeo and how she loves him. it also happens when she's at the party when she meets Romeo. She also wishes that he wasn't a Montague and the whole feud between the family's was over with.
