“Romeo and Juliet” is a play written around 1597 by the English writer and playwright William Shakespeare. Based on an Italian legend, tells the story of two families of Verona faced by old hatreds, the Montessori and the Capulet. Romeo Montessori falls in love with Juliet, the daughter of the Capulet. Knowing that their love will not be allowed by their families, they decide to plot a plan to secretly marry and escape together. But in a dispute, Romeo ends up killing Theo bald, cousin of Juliet and is exiled by it. Juliet then draws up a plan so that her whole family may believe her dead and thus be able to flee with her love. She drinks a potion that lulls her and is buried with the intention of being released later from her coffin and being free. But Romeo is not informed in time and believing really dead Juliet takes her life before her coffin. She, upon awakening from her dream and seeing that Romeo has committed suicide, opts to do the same thing broken by the pain. After the death of the two young people, the families, impressed by what happened, decide to sign the peace between them.
Personal essay on the novel and its main theme
It is also the lack of communication that leads the two young people to love each other in secret. It is true that they probably would not have let them be together, at least not in principle, but it is also true that they did not at any time attempt to explain their feelings to their families, opting from the beginning for secrets and lies Ended up costing them their lives.
Finally, Juliet’s plan to flee with Romeo is truncated because Romeo does not receive the letter in which she was explained that Juliet was not really dead. Again the lack of communication makes its appearance in history and happens again because Romeo, thinking that his beloved has died, acts impulsively, without speaking to anyone and therefore without possibilities for him to know the truth. He dies without reason, for ignoring the truth and not because his love was forbidden.
If the Montessori and the Capulet’s had sat down to talk and settle their differences, there would have been no such a long confrontation. Obviously they were not irremovable problems since finally, albeit too late for lovers of Verona, if they could befriend each other again. If Juliet and Romeo had had the courage to speak among themselves, to draw together their plans and not to act each one by their side, neither would their history have had such a tragic ending. That is why I defend that the true heart of history is the lack of communication and its dramatic consequences for men.
