A Quick Romeo and Juliet Review

A Quick Romeo and Juliet Review

A lot of people groan at the mention of Romeo and Juliet. It is one of the top things to read in our English classes and one of the many plays William Shakespeare is most known for. We watch the different movies versions and we discuss the different aspects of the plays.

“Is there such a thing as love at first sight?” being a favorite topic of discussion. We also discuss the use of language. I don’t know about your teachers, but one of mine had us memorize some lines to present to the class. Believe it or not, that is actually quite easy because of how Shakespeare writes. Which is one reason as to why I love this play.

I love this play for its language use. Below are some of my favorite lines in the play:

Romeo and Juliet

LOVE IT!

I personally, had gotten tired of the story because of constant repetition. But it wasn’t until I heard the Nostalgia Critic talk about Romeo and Juliet that I began to appreciate the story a little more. I embedded his video below. Hopefully, you will be just as enlightened as I was.
