Not Shakespeares greatest work; read his other plays
am 21. Juli 1998
I love the works of Shakespeare. They offer life, comedy, tragedy, love, and more, but of all Shakespeares plays, Romeo and Juliet ranks very low. The story is rather tragic, but it is unoriginal and over done (it was even in Shakespeares time), afterall, Shakespeare got it from another contemporary story which got it from another story and so on. It is also rather extreme and unrealistic. Many say it is the perfect teen love story, however, it does little to explore true love. Bring me proof that "love at first site" can actually exist (I know LUST at first site does, but true love, no), and I might consider this a realistic love story that real people can realate to! Many educators wonder why so many children and teenagers are so uninterested in Shakespeare; prehaps because they are required to read this particular play is why. For those who love tragedy, I recommend Othello or Odepius Rex, and for those who like Shakespeare, I recommend Much Ado About! Nothing, A Midsummer Nights Dream, The Tempest, the history plays (i.e. Henry IV, Henry V, etc.) and any other play by Shakespeare, except Romeo and Juliet!
