Romeo and Juliet The moral of Romeo and Juliet is one of letting old family wounds go, and not letting your emotions rule your life. The Montague and the Capulets have let an old family rivalry take over their lives. They refuse to have anything to with each other. They are both a very powerful and influential, but they have such hatred for the other.If the two families had let the rift between them go, then they may have been able to save the lives of their two children. If they had allowed Romeo and Juliet to be able to have an open relationship and not make them feel like they have to hide their relationship, then the two families could have come together and had a great life together. If Romeo and Juliet had been a little more patient with their relationship, and given their parents time to maybe come to an understanding, then they wouldn't have lost their lives. The whole moral is to let go of the things in the
past, and to keep control over your emotions. The opening lines of the play tells how the hatred between the two families led to the death of their beloved children. Now a days students are very related to the story of Romeo and Juliet.Romeo and Juliet mirrors the love you experience in your youth, more or less, which happens to everyone at a point in their lives.We saw how love was expressed like a bursting soda where one could not possibly control or contain when it's being shaken/awaken. Such kind of love may be infatuation to some, doing probably or possibly seemingly unreasonable things in the eyes of the others, but nevertheless a desperate reaction to the one experiencing it.It shows us how love can conquer anything just so it can be felt and expressed and beholden. Romeo and Juliet is officially classified as a tragedy, but in some respects the play deviates from the tragic genre. Unlike other Shakespearean tragedies such asMacbeth,King Lear, andJulius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet is not concerned with a noble character whose actions have widespread consequence. Instead, the story describes the love between two ordinary teenagers. Another important way Romeo and Juliet deviates from other Shakespearean tragedies is that the main characters
cannot be said to make a fatal error that leads to their demise. Romeo kills Tybalt not because of a flaw within himself, but because of the violent feuding spreading across Verona. He himself is not responsible for the feud, an “ancient grudge” that has been in place long before the play opens. Romeo’s murder of Tybalt is impulsive, but the act doesn’t reveal a deeper lack within his character. Rather, the murder is externally motivated by his circumstances. Similarly, in taking her own life, Juliet acts rashly and unwisely, but her actions can’t be described as a character-driven error so much as a response to the desperate circumstances she finds herself in. Romeo and Julietis afamousstory because something as wonderful as lovecausesso much grief.InRomeo and Juliet, there is theclassicinterference of love by those who are filled with hatred. Two families hate each other and porbably do not even remember what started the feud.
