“Romeo & Juliet”
Introduction
Written in 1599,
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy
written early in the career of
William Shakespeare about two
young lovers whose deaths            Shakespear
ultimately unite their feuding
families. It was among
Shakespeare's most popular
plays during his lifetime and,
along with Hamlet, is one of his
most frequently performed
plays. Today, the title characters
are regarded as archetypal
young lovers.
Romeo and Juliet tells the
story of two young lovers
who fall deeply in love and
do everything
they can to be together.
Prologu
The Chorus setse the
                 up
  mood by telling the
 audience in the form of
 a sonnet that there is a
 feud between two
 families in Verona, a
 town in Italy. Amidst the
 warring sides, two "star-
 cross'd lovers" will die
 for love of one another,
 and it is only their
 deaths that will bring
 peace to Verona.

Setting



Verona                     Mantua




         Elizabethan Era
Romeo
                                             and
                                            Juliet
                                          Summary

Long ago in the city of Verona, lived two noble families, the
Capulets and the Montagues. For as long as anyone could
remember, there was much hatred between the two families.
Romeo, the son of Montague, was the only one who wanted to
make peace.
Romeo reveals that he is in love with a woman named
Rosaline.
One day, Romeo heard there
 was going to be a feast at the
 house of Capulet. He decided
 to go, but in disguise so that no
 one would know who he was.
 When Romeo arrived there, he
 looked around the room, and
 caught sight of a girl so
 beautiful that he could think of
 nothing else. When he found
 out that she was Juliet,
 Capulet's daughter, he was
 stunned. Juliet also fell in love
 with the young man. When she        When Romeo and Juliet
                                     meet, they fall in love and
 heard that he was Romeo, the
                                     had their first kiss behind the
 only son of Montague, she           curtain near the candles.
 could hardly believe her            Later, Juliet's mom takes her
 misfortune. "My only love           away.
 sprung from my only hate!" she
 said.
Later that night, Romeo
was walking past the
Capulets’ garden when he
suddenly stopped. "Can I
go forward when my love is
here?" He decided to climb
over the wall and meet
Juliet. Then he saw her
standing on the balcony.
Juliet had not seen him.
"Romeo, Romeo!" she said
to herself. "Why are you
Romeo? Refuse your
name and I'll no longer be
a Capulet". Romeo was
filled with joy.
The Balcony Scene




“Romeo, Romeo,
  Wherefore art thou
  Romeo?”                  Remember: Wherefore means
                           “Why”
Romeo and Juliet confessed their love to each other.
The next day, Romeo and Juliet are married by Friar
  Lawrence; an event witnessed by Juliet’s Nurse and
  Romeo’s loyal servant, Balthasar. They plan to meet
  in Juliet’s chambers that night.
While Romeo was coming back from the
secret wedding, he came across Tybalt,
Juliet's cousin, who had been arguing with
Romeo's friend Mercutio.
In the fight that followed, Tybalt killed
Mercutio and then fell dead from Romeo's
sword. Romeo had to escape from the city
of Verona.
Friar Lawrence informs Romeo that he has been
   banished from Verona and will be killed if he stays.
   The Friar suggests Romeo spend the night with
   Juliet, then leave for Mantua in the morning. He tells
   Romeo that he will attempt to settle the Capulet and
   Montague dispute so Romeo can later return to a
   united family. Romeo takes his advice, spending one
   night with Juliet before fleeing Verona.
• Juliet’s mother, completely
  unaware of her daughter's
  secret marriage to Romeo,
  informs Juliet that she will
  marry a man named Paris
  in a few days.
• Juliet, outraged, refuses to
  comply.
• She asks Friar Lawrence
  for advice, insisting she
  would rather die than marry
  Paris. Fr. Lawrence gives
  Juliet a poison which will
  make her appear dead and
  tells her to take it the night
  before the wedding. He
  promises to send word to
  Romeo - intending the two
  lovers be reunited.
Romeo and Juliet
Juliet drinks the poison and
everybody assumes that she is
dead — including Balthasar, who
immediately tells Romeo. Friar
Lawrence’s letter fails to reach
Romeo, so he assumes that his
wife is dead.
The next day, Juliet was found lifeless in her
  bedroom. When Romeo heard the bad news,
  he believed Juliet was really dead because
  the priest’s letter had not reached him by an
  unfortunate accident.
He could not live without her. The
only thing he wanted was to die next
to Juliet. He rushes to Juliet’stomb
and, in deep grief, drinks a vial of
poison.
A few minutes later, Juliet woke up and
realised what had happened. She took Romeo’s
dagger and stabbed herself. When the true
story of Romeo and Juliet was made known,
their families decided to put an end to their
hatred.
Moments later, Juliet wakes to find
Romeo dead and kills herself due to grief.
Once the families discover what happened, they finally end
            their bitter feud. Thus the youngsters' deaths bring the
            families together. Romeo And Juliet is a true tragedy in the
            literary sense because the families gather sufficient self-
            knowledge to correct their behavior but not until it is too
            late to save the situation.

Fate       Marriage   Love
Fate    Romeo and Juliet are ―star-crossed‖—that is to say
         that fate ontrols them). This sense of fate permeates
         the play, and not just for the audience. The characters
         also are quite aware of it: Romeo and Juliet constantly
         see omens.
        The mechanism of fate works in all of the events
         surrounding the lovers:
        The feud between their families (it is worth noting that
         this hatred is never explained; rather, the reader must
         accept it as an undeniable aspect of the world of the
         play);
        The tragic timing of Romeo’s suicide and Juliet’s
         awakening.
        These events are not mere coincidences, but rather
         manifestations of fate that help bring about the
         unavoidable outcome of the young lovers’ deaths.
