Hoping For the Worse What's in a name? that which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet. is a famous quote from Shakespeare. The use of "olde" English and the subject of "roses” hint that the quote involves "love"; the smell sweetness and the rose give away the cliché symbol of love. Yet, despite the lovely tone, an informed person must know that this quote is from the tragic play of Romeo and Juliet and that the story ends in the death of Romeo and Juliet. It seems that Shakespeare did not allow the cupid to bless their relationship and we cannot help but question, why is it that such a lovely story ends in the death of the star- crossed lovers? But maybe that not even the right question at all. Why is it that it even interests us to read over and over again about a love story, which ends in the lovers taking their own lives? Is cupid now trying to make us love, seeing others hating each other?
