Ciao ale, all'interrogazione di inglese di qualche settimana fa ho portato un testo su Romeo and Juliet con analisi delle principali tematiche presenti e riassunto della storia. Le informazioni sono prese da un sito che ora non ricordo, ma questo è il testo ottenuto riadattando gli appunti presi; per il resto devi arrangiarti tu...:blush

Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies. It’s a play about love and passion between two young people. Love plays an important role in Romeo and Juliet. Love is not just a normal feeling; it is something that a person is willing to do something for. In the extreme case of Romeo and Juliet, they were each willing to die for each other. Their love was so strong that they were prepared to go against years of hatred between their families and try to make things work. Hatred also plays an important role in Romeo and Juliet. The hatred between the Montagues and Capulets ends up killing their only two children. Hatred never leads up to any good. Significant is also the role of Romeo and Juliet’s fate, who eventually takes their own lives because of misunderstandings. You can say that Romeo and Juliet had too much bad luck and you can also say that in this tale there are many unlucky situations. This play leaves you thinking “if only…”: for example if only the messenger had delivered the letter or if only Juliet had woken up sooner.
The play opens in Verona, with a new riot between the families. It starts as an argument between servants of opposing households and grows to involve more people, including Tybalt and Benvolio. Eventually, the Prince breaks up the fight, leaving both households with a warning: if another disturbance breaks out, the punishment will be death. Here Romeo makes the scene. Romeo is made aware of the fight by Benvolio. Romeo expresses his hopeless love for Rosaline to Benvolio, who tells him that there are plenty of other beauties. Benvolio has a solution to Romeo’s depression: they should attend the Capulet party so that Romeo will realize that there are many other girls prettier than Rosaline. Romeo agrees to attend the party with the hope that Rosaline might be there. But there’s a problem: this is a Capulet ball and Romeo is a Montague. They sneak into the party and hide under masks. Tybalt spots Romeo, but his father refuses to let him cause chaos at his party. Then Romeo sees Juliet. They fall in love with each other and sneak to the back and kiss. Only after the party is over do, the two lovers realize that they are from opposing families. Romeo, unwilling to leave Juliet, sneaks into the Capulet balcony to watch her. This is when the most famous scene takes place. Juliet is talking to herself and expresses her love for Romeo, unaware that he is watching her. After she talks for a while, he climbs up the balcony and tells of his love for her. They exchange vows and promise to marry the next day at Friar Laurence’s cell. At first the Friar disagrees, but then he thinks that their marriage may end the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. He agrees to marry them. After that Tybalt meets Romeo in the street and challenges him, but Romeo refuses to fight (since Tybalt is now his cousin). However, Mercutio fights Tybalt and is fatally stabbed. With Mercutio’s death, Romeo demands revenge and kills Tybalt. This is the climax of the play. Romeo hides in the Friar’s cell and learns his punishment: exile. In those days, the punishment of exile seemed worse than death because Romeo would not be able to see his love, Juliet. Romeo should go see Juliet and then leave for Mantua, the next town. The fine young Paris wishes to take Juliet’s hand in marriage. Her father, assuming that Juliet will be pleased, sets the wedding date for Thursday (3 days later). After Juliet refuses to marry Paris (she is already married to Romeo), her father becomes very upset. He hits her and promises to refuse to acknowledge her if she doesn’ marry Paris. Her mother and even her loving Nurse suggest it; so Juliet runs off to the Friar. Juliet, like Romeo, believes that the only solution is suicide, but the Friar talks her out of it. He has a drug that will make Juliet appear dead for 42 hours. The Friar tells Juliet to take it the night before her wedding. In the meantime, he will send a notice to Romeo to return from Mantua. When Juliet awakes from her nap, Romeo will be there waiting for her. The plan sounds like it will work and Juliet takes the drug. Juliet pretends to consent to her father’s wishes and acts as if she is happy to be married.Tuesday night, Juliet becomes afraid that the plan will not work, becoming suspicious of the Friar. She takes a dagger to kill herself in case the drug fails. Finally, Juliet overcomes her fears and, because of her love for Romeo, she drinks the liquid. Wednesday morning, the Nurse finds her dead and a funeral is planned. Things seemed to work, but the message sent to Romeo about the plan never reaches him. Instead, Romeo’s messenger Balthasar tells Romeo that Juliet is dead. Romeo, determined not to believe that his love is dead until he has seen it with his own eyes, rides off to Verona, but before arriving there, he stops by an apothecary to buy poison. If the news is true, he will commit suicide. Upon entering, he confronts Paris, who thinks that Romeo has come to desecrate the tombs. Paris is killed. After Romeo delivers a monologue on the infinite beauty of Juliet, he drinks his poison and dies. The Friar arrives just a minute too late, finding both Romeo and Paris dead. Juliet awakens, looking for her Romeo. Seeing him dead on the ground, she tries to drink some of his poison but the vial is empty. Juliet takes out her dagger and stabs herself. Romeo and Juliet’s play ends up in such a manner.

P.S: ha avuto il consenso anche di malinconia...:yes:lol!
