Romeo and Juliet Ending

My Reaction

I found the ending of the story really frustrating because we knew what was happening and they didn’t. I felt like screaming at the screen for them to just wait one more second and maybe they could live, but that didn’t happen because they both ended up dead. Even though you know that that’s whats going to happen from the start, It still gets to you because you know how simple it would be for them to live happily ever after.

Romeo And Juliet Quote Analysis

“I Would the Fool Were Married to the Grave” 

The quote is said by Lady Capulet (Juliet’s Mother) and what she is saying is

“I wish that she was married to her grave. ”                                                                             The interesting word, in my opinion, is “married” because Lady Capulet doesn’t know that Juliet already is.

The way that the quote relates back to the rest of the story, in my opinion, is because Juliet is in a way already “married to her grave” because Romeo is her husband and Romeo is the reason for her death.

“Is love an Invention Created by Humans?

No, I do not think that love was invented by humans because love is a feeling that has existed since the cave days. I’m not sure if they had a marriage type love but I definitely believe that they loved their children and family. An Example of this is that a newborn child; they haven’t been taught to love their parents they just do.

“Is a White Piece of Paper any More Blank Than a Blank Piece of Paper?”

No, I do not think that a white piece of paper is any more blank than a black piece of paper because of the definition of something that is blank is not having any decorations or other features (bare empty or plain). Making something black doesn’t stop it from fitting into all of those descriptions, it just changes the shade. If I were to add a turtle to the middle of the page it would no longer be plain because it now has a “feature”.



Romeo and Juliet Quotes

Quote 1:
If you be he, sir, I desire some confidence with you.
This is the nurse telling Romeo that if he is the Romeo that she is looking for, she needs to speak to him.
This is significant because they are about to plan the wedding.


Quote  2:

Bid her devise some means to come to shrift this afternoon

And there she shall at Friar Lawrence’ cell

Be shrove and married. (gives her coins) Here is for thy pains.


This is Romeo talking to the nurse and telling her to prepare Juliet for the wedding this afternoon.

“If I’m being kind to you but you think I’m being horrible, am I being kind or not?”

No, I don’t think that you are being kind because even though your intent is good you’re not taking the other person thoughts into consideration. Its just being care less. For example, if my friends’ turtle passed away last week and now I’m showing her photos of cute turtles without realising that this might make her upset, she is probably going to get a bit mad at me for bringing something like that up.
