The literary techniques combine with this to show a different meaning to the story and to allow the reader to redefine and think of......Romeo and Juliet 1968 Review: Romeo and Juliet is a revolutionary master piece adopted from famous Shakespeare’s tragedy play in which actual teenagers played the lead roles.In my opinion, no one is directly to blame for the tragedy, it was matter-of fact,......
Just like the Montague and the Capulet, the two groups had people who protected them regardless of the aggressiveness between the two families.
Tony is killed by a gang in the end as a result of the union between him and Maria (Laurents 3).
Romeo and his friends were ousted by the Capulet family from the party.
Some days later, Romeo returned back to Juliet’s home where they met on her balcony. The two families issued various threats against each other, and Romeo accidentally killed Juliet’s cousin (Bly 17). Conversely, in the West Side Story, Tony was Polish while Maria was a Puerto Rican residing in New York.
In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet’s family (Capulet) considered themselves as noble, while Romeo’s family (Montague) was a humble family.
Juliet was a young virgin girl 14 years of age, who had been promised to marry a man of the family’s own choice. It occurred that Romeo, accompanied by his friends, crashed at the Capulet’s party and instantly fell in love with Juliet.Maria decided to move on after Tony’s death despite the strong love she had for him.The West Side Story plot and performance is in Manhattan Upper West Side.Of course the stories wouldn’t be that much similar......The musical West Side Story famously opens with members of the rival gangs crossing paths and setting the stage for the inevitable rumble.Oddly, however, the two title characters play little or no part in this most important scene.The act opens with two servants of the Capulets.....the talisman that was given to his mother by an Egyptian woman.At that time, when Juliet was falling in love with Romeo, she had no idea who he was.Juliet came to know more about Romeo from her cousin, who identified him as a family enemy.First, the plays were written in different periods, so their characters are not similar.This is a statement to establish in the following discussion/comparison of the two plays.
