This great book drama of course I read in a single night. Naturally, an English graduate seldom can remain away from Shakespeare and his realm. However, even as an individual, before I began my studies seriously, Shakespeare and some of his creations were on the list 'to be read'. Romeo and Juliet is a play, to be clear at the beginning.
Yes, as critics modern ones claim, this is perhaps the most 'unlikely' play which does not synchronise with the reality as others by the same dramatist. Nev This great book drama of course I read in a single night. Nevertheless, let's give the 'play' its due - it surely does create that sensation which Shakespeare wanted to. The ephemeral romance between the 'first sight lovers' and the enemies sworn to suck the blood out of their lives The book has its merits as well as the demerits.
Shakespeare is the vacuum. You can keep your experiments going on I would like to rather appreciate him for his creation this time.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
I enjoyed reading the play and truly did! Sep 07, Ian "Marvin" Graye rated it it was amazing Shelves: read , reviews , reviewsstars. BRUCE: The midnight gang's assembled And picked a rendezvous for the night Man there's an opera on the turnpike There's a ballet being fought in the alley PRINCE: Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word, By thee, old Capulet, and Montague, Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets, And made Verona's ancient citizens Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments, To wield old partisans, in hands as old, Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate.
Once more, on pain of death, all men depart. Enter Romeo, still love-sick for Rosaline.
BRUCE: In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway Italian dream At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines Romeo, still pining for Rosaline, discovers Juliet and becomes newly infatuated. BRUCE: Together we could break this trap We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back Romeo pleads even harder, now he has learned about his rival, Bruce.
Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Juliet falls for Romeo regardless. That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet. Juliet decides she must confront Bruce and tell him they are not meant to be. JULIET: Bruce, the angels have lost their desire for us I spoke to them just last night and they said they won't set themselves on fire for us anymore Bruce persists, trying to hold onto the memory of their love. Bruce gives her a small glass bottle of non-prescription drugs. Blue tablets.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Juliet takes three tablets immediately. Romeo looks dashing in his open-necked shirt and film director scarf. Juliet has never seen anything like him. The love between Romeo and Juliet grows in leaps and bounds.
Juliet feels no relief for her headache. She opens the bottle and takes another two tablets. Tybalt chases them on a motor bike.

He crosses suddenly into Romeo's path and clips the front edge of the car. He loses control of his bike and falls to the thundering road. Romeo can't avoid running over the top of Tybalt and killing him. Still, Romeo rolls his car three times while taking evasive action, and both Romeo and Juliet are knocked unconscious when their heads hit the side door panels. She realises that her headache has now become extreme.
If she can treat her pain, she can try to help Romeo. She touches her forehead where it hit the inside of the car door and pulls her hand away, covered in blood that still seems to be flowing profusely. Tears form in her eyes and her eyesight becomes blurry. She reaches into her purse and takes another four tablets, in the hope that it will kill her pain. She lapses into unconsciousness. Shortly afterwards, Romeo awakes and finds Juliet still beside him. There is blood everywhere and a white froth has descended from her lips and dried on her chin.
Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty: Thou art not conquer'd; beauty's ensign yet Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there. Romeo wipes the froth from her lips and gives her one last kiss. He lifts the left leg of his trousers and pulls out his knife. Eyes, look your last! Arms, take your last embrace! Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide! Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on The dashing rocks thy sea-sick weary bark! Here's to my love!

Romeo drags the knife across his throat. He drops the knife and holds his hand to the artery in his neck.

He continues to feel the slow, regular pumping of his heart, until it pumps no more. Now, Juliet wakes again. Still groggy, she looks over to Romeo. Convinced by the abundance of blood that he has died, she shakes the rest of the tablets in the bottle into her hand and swallows them eagerly. Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. She kisses Romeo and dies. Bruce lives alone and works his day job, almost like an automaton. His only salvation is the time he spends in his beat up old Buick. Every night, he drives the streets of Verona, haunted by the love he felt for Juliet and the guilt that it was the pills he gave her that took her life.
Sometimes, through the tears in his eyes, he imagines that he sees her walking down the street, only to lose sight of her as she slips quietly down an alleyway.
BRUCE: You're still in love with all the wonder she brings And every muscle in your body sings as the highway ignites You work nine to five and somehow you survive till the night Hell all day they're busting you up on the outside But tonight you're gonna break on through to the inside And it'll be right, it'll be right, and it'll be tonight And you know she will be waiting there And you'll find her somehow you swear Somewhere tonight you run sad and free Until all you can see is the night.
How can I possibly argue that your lyrics deserve to be on the same page as Shakespeare, unless I shamelessly misappropriate them in the pursuit of parody, pastiche, spoof, send-up or lampoon? This isn't damning with faint praise.
Romeo + Juliet () - IMDb
This is no piss-take. This is a full-on homage, a big hurrah, a laud almighty.
I say, more kudos to the Boss! As the literary theorist Linda Hutcheon puts it as quoted by my WikiLawyer , "parody I don't need any more, until you release 50th anniversary editions with bonus disks I don't already have. Please get your lawyers to spare my humble upload. And if they do come looking for me, they'd better be pretty damned fit, coz tramps like us, baby we were born to run. Jun 14, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics , plays. The first time I read Romeo and Juliet my freshman year of high school , I hated it. I had always heard it built up as a great love story, a great romance- and I didn't see it at all.
To me, it seemed a pretty pointless story about a couple of idiotic teenagers in lust. The ridiculous essays I was forced to compose about it certainly didn't help.
