Romeo and Juliet Summative

By: Annie Elkins

As a result to the family feud Romeo and Juliet can not only not be together but are now deceased and can not be with anyone. If the feud between the Montagues and Capulets never existed then the core problem of why Romeo and Juliet can't be together would have never existed. "My love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that i must love a loathed enemy" (act 1, scene 5). If the two families didn't have such an undying hatred for each other Juliet wouldn't even have to worry about loving 'the enemy'. If the two didn't hate each other then Tybalt wouldn't be mad at Romeo for being at the party and wouldn't have fought and killed Mercuio resulting in Tybalt dying. "Romeo, the hate I bare thee can afford, no better term than this,--thou art a villain"(act 3, scene 1). Tybalt just simply hates Romeo for being at the party because hes a Montague and even tho Romeo is acting right and gentlemanly Tybalt hates his guts because where he came from and what his name is.

relations between Romeo and Juliet and Twilight

Even though Romeo and Juliet was written in years and years before the modern day Twilight they still go hand and hand. In relations to Romeo and Juliet I believe Twilight is very relate able in the scenario of Bella Swan portrayed by Kristen Stewart, can't be with Edward Cullen played by Robert Pattinson and still keep Jacob Black played by Taylor Launter as her best friend. Because the feud of vampires which that's what Edward is and werewolves which is what Jacob is goes so deep that it causes her to choose between the two of being with Jacob or being with Edward. I see the resemblance just like in Romeo and Juliet the feud between the Montagues and Capulets pushes Juliet to have to decide if shes going to go behind her parents back and disobey them, or marry Romeo and run away with him.

Relations of All I Want by Kodaline to Romeo and Juliet

In addition to Romeo and Juliet relating to modern day media, it also falls along the lines of the heartbreak song, All I Want by Kodaline. All I Want resembles the tragic love story between Romeo and Juliet because the song say, "All I want is nothing more than to hear you knocking at my door 'Cause if I could see your face once more i could die a happy man i'm sure

When you said your last goodbyes I died a little bit inside I lay in tear in bed all night alone without you by my side". Juliet was completely heartbroken when she found out that Romeo not only had to be banished but also her parents were gonna marry Paris and Juliet. That is she could just be with Romeo for the rest of her life she would die happy
