Romeo and Juliet (1594-95)
THE PLAY. Romeo and Juliet was written around 1594-95 and first published in 1597. it is one of Shakespeare's best-known tragedies and probably the most famous love story of all times. its success has been recently renewed by several film versions. with Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare invented something totally new: he was the first dramatist to put love at the centre of a tragedy, to make it the real cause of the tragic events- and not just an accident. This is in itself was a revolution in the history of the theatre, and it is for this that Romeo and Juliet has been called a "lyrical tragedy". it is a tragedy because Romeo and Juliet's love seems, from the beginning, destined to end in death: Shakespeare repeatedly stresses that the stars- that is,destiny- are against Romeo and Juliet, and images of death and the tomb occur throughout the play. But, at the same time, the play is also lyrical because it is built on the language and images typical of Renaissance love poetry, he same that Shakespeare exploided so well in his own sonnets- as may be seen from the love duet between Romeo and Juliet in the famous balcony scene. Also from the point of view of its dramatic structure, Romeo and Juliet may be divided into two parts: the first two acts may be read as a love comedy (though there are several hints of imminent tragedy), while the real tragedy begins whith Mercutio and Tybalt's death's in the third act. Romeo and Juliet is also the tragedy of youth. it is the young people who die in the play, and their deaths are only due to the feud between their families. Throughout the play, parents do not listen and are cruel to their children (especially Juliet's father). Shakespeare makes it xlear that Romeo and Juliet are victims sacrificed so that their families might be reconciled at the end of the play,
THE STORY. the story is set in Verona. juliet is the only child of the head of the House of Capulet. her father plans to marry her to Count Paris. Despite the fact that the Montagues and Capulets are bitter enemies, Romeo, son of old Lord Montague, attends a feast given by Lord Capulet, disguised in a mask. at the feast, Romeo and Juliet are secretly married by a friendly priest, Friar Laurence. that same day Romeo gets involved in a street quarrel in which hid friend Mercutio is killed by Tybalt, a Capulet. in revenge, Romeo kills Tybalt and because of this crime is exiled to Mantua. Meanwhile, Juliet's father, unawareof the secret marriage, orders her to prepare immediately to marry Count Paris. to escape, she takes a drug given to her by Friar Laurenceto put her in a deathlike trance; the friar will then warn Romeo, who will come from Mantua and rescue her. Romeo, however, is mistakenly told that Juliet id dead. rushing back to Verona, he meets Paris outside Juliet's tomb; they fight and Paris is killed. then Romeo breaks into the tomb and, seeing Juliet apparently dead, takes fatal poison. waking from her trance, the horrified Juliet sees Romeo dead, takes his dagger and kills herself. when the Capulets and Montagues learn of the tragedy, they become reconciled.
FOCUS ON THE TEXT (ONLY YOUR NAME IS MY ENEMY). in the passage, the way in which the characters interact is carefully presented. it is night: Juliet is inizially speaking to herself, leaning out of her window. in literary terms her speech is called a soliloquy or a monologue. the function of the soliloquy is to reveal to the audience a character's real feelings and intentions- in this case, Juliet's love for Romeo. significantly Juliet opposes the substance of things to the power of words: Romeo is not just a name (Montague) but a flesh-and-blood person made of hand, foot, arm,face, etc. the situation is made more complex by the fact tha Romeo, hidden under the window, overhears what Juliet says and, after a short aside, finally bursts out and declares his love too. it is an excellent example of how Shakespeare manages to pass from the language and situations of love poetry ( a single lover singing his/her love) to those of drama ( two people exchanging words and feelings). the dialogue reveals the characters of the two young lovers. The main speaker is Juliet, who shows herself to be the more conscious and mature of the pair: she is just as passionate as Romeo but also has a deeper understanding of things. Juliet asks a direct question: "How cam'st thou hither, teel me, and wherefore?" and expresses real fear twice: "If they do see thee, they will murder thee", "I would not for the world they saw thee here"; while Romeo replies in a rhetoricalway, using many of the images typical of love poetry. This underlines the play's main dramatic theme: the contrast between the rhetoric of love and the tragedy of real life.

HAMLET (1600-1601)
THE PLAY. Hamlet is Shakespeare's most famous play. the story of the Danish prince Hamlet was well-known to Shakespeare's contemporaries through chronicles, and possibly also a stage version of it ( the so-called Ur-Hamlet) which, however, is now lost. the popularity of Hamlet has been constant through the centuries, and its story is one of the most frequently filmed. Hamlet is perhaps the closest of Shakespeare's tragedies to modern sensibility. its hero's doubts and indecisions are familiar to modern man, equally tormented by a lack of certainties and the inability to communicate. this is shown by the many theatrical and cinematic versions of theplay in modern times, such as Tom Stoppard's play Rosemcrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead ( 1958, also made into a successful film in 1990) or, in Italy, Carmelo Bene's Amleto (1961). Hamlet's indecisions must be placed against the background of the "revenge tragedy", a very popular genre at the time. According to its conventions, Hamlet should have sought revenge with all his force and as soon as possible. But he does not do so. He is full of hesitations: in the first place, about hismother and King Claudius, whom he supposes has killed his father; secondly, about himself. in his famous monologues he analyzes the meaning of life, and especially the ideas of love and death. in the most famous of them ("To be, or no to be";) he debates whether action is preferable to inaction, and life to suicide. as the Romantic critic August W. von Sclegel noted. Hamlet is the tragedy of will: in it, thought kills action. Ambiguity is the keynote to the tragedy. even the theme of revenge, so clear in contemporary drama, here is called into question: all the evidence Hamlet has of Claudius' confusion at watching a play that reproduces his supposed crime. modern criticism has also given a psychoanalytical reading of the play, according to which, Hamlet's hasitant and ambiguous behaviour towards his mother and step-father (Claudius) is an exemplification of the Oedipus complex, i.e. the son's love of his mother and hatred of his father.

Ciao!
Io comincio con il riassumerti un po' la prima parte del testo, spero che ti possa servire! ;)
THE PLAY. Romeo and Juliet was written around 1594-95 and first published in 1597, and it's one of Shakespeare's best-known tragedies and probably the most famous love story of all times. Romeo and Juliet Is the first drama in which love is put at the centre of a tragedy, and this is a revolution in the history of the theatre; that's why Romeo and Juliet has been called a "lyrical tragedy". But why is it a tragedy? Romeo and Juliet's love seems, from the beginning, destined to end in death: destiny is against them, and images of death and the tomb occur throughout the play. But, at the same time, the play is also lyrical because it is built on the language and images typical of Renaissance love poetry, the same that Shakespeare used in his sonnets. Romeo and Juliet may be divided into two parts: the first two can be considered as a love comedy, while the real tragedy begins whith Mercutio and Tybalt's death's in the third act. Romeo and Juliet is also the tragedy of youth: these two young people die because of the feud between their families, and their parents do not listen and are cruel to them (especially Juliet's father). Romeo and Juliet seem to be victims, sacrificed in order to make their families reconcile at the end of the play.
