script structure. The play was set up well, and it gradually moved towards various conflicts and then ended with the resolution. I believe the play consisted of all the 5 genres that were taught to us in class. Good vs. Evil was shown by Beethoven dying. There were three stories related to romance going on in the play; CB’s love for Beethoven, CB’s sisters’ love for Beethoven, and Van’s sisters’ love for CB. The underdog element was seen when CB stuck up for Beethoven against Matt and also when Beethoven went against Matt. Coming-of-age element of the play was seen when all the actors read Beethovens’ last letter to CB. Histories genre was clearly present in the play because people have committed suicide in the past because of excessive harassment. According to me the playwrights’ impetus behind writing the play was that he had been an outcast during his school years which probably traumatized him and writing about the situation was an outlet for his past experiences. However, after research I found out that he said “I hate teenagers. I can’t stand them. They scare me. I just think it’s this period of time where puberty makes you crazy . They’re such nasty human beings” (Bert V. Royal). Also he said that, “What was so appealing about these kids is that life was always so sad, even though there was nothing to be sad about,”(Bert V. Royal). After my research I believe his impetus was different than what I thought it was.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
