Role Models and Leadership in "Romeo and Juliet" - There are various displays of leadership and role modeling in the Shakespearean play 'Romeo and Juliet'.

Two very good examples of the contrasts between a good leader and a good role model are the characters Friar Lawrence and the Prince of Verona, in Romeo and Juliet....   [tags: Role Models, Leadership, Romeo and Juliet, shakesp] 800 words

Juliet's Emotional Currency in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - In an attempt to push away from medieval love conventions and her father's authority, Shakespeare's Juliet asserts sovereignty over her sexuality. She removes it from her father's domain and uses it to capture Romeo's love. Critic Mary Bly argues that sexual puns color Juliet's language. These innuendoes were common in Renaissance literature and would have been recognized by an Elizabethan audience. Arguably, Juliet uses sexual terms when speaking to Romeo in order to make him aware of her sexuality....   [tags: Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet] 452 words

How Both Romeo and Juliet Take Full Responsibility for their Deaths - From the very prologue of Romeo and Juliet, we are informed by Shakespeare that these two “star-cross’d lovers” are going to “take their life”. For the rest of the play, we are left to observe how they kill themselves and who or what leads them into doing so. However, placing the blame on one person or event would be impossible, as nobody was directly responsible for their demise. Instead, everything that could possibly have gone wrong did go wrong. Although both Romeo and Juliet end up thinking it was their own decision to kill themselves, there were many other factors that unwittingly forced them into the situation they eventually found themselves....   [tags: shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet,] 770 words

Blame for the Deaths of Romeo and Juliet - Blame for the Deaths of Romeo and Juliet The two people or things I would most blame for their deaths are Romeo and fate. The reason for blaming Romeo is because he was too hasty, organised everything in secret and he was blinded by love. I think fate is also to blame as it also brought bad luck and also the letter did not reach Romeo. In the play Romeo was being too hasty by getting married so quickly to Juliet. This is shown by Romeo saying: “Then plainly know, my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; … But this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today.” This shows us that Romeo wasted no time in getting married....   [tags: Romeo and Juliet Essays] 727 words

Who is to Blame in Romeo and Juliet? - I don’t believe one particular person or circumstance is to blame for the death of the lovers in Romeo and Juliet, but a combination of history, circumstance, fate and personality lead the lovers towards tragedy. In terms of history and circumstance we must remember that in the sixteenth century, marriages were arranged. The play would therefore be considered very wrong in Elizabethan times as the couple are marrying without their parents consent. This is a very important point to be considered because the lovers rebel against custom and history in choosing each other....   [tags: Free Romeo and Juliet Essays] 819 words
