Romeo and Juliet, Aug 2 2002
Caterina and Florencia
We want to share with you our opinion of this edition of the famous writer William Shakespeare: "Romeo and Juliet". In one hand this book helps us, students, teachers, to incorporate poetry into our minds; and learn things about those ages, for example their customs. Also it helps to improve your English.
At first we couldn't understand the way this tragedy was set up. But then, with our teacher's help, we undestood the main ideas. We believe it's very difficult to analise, because of the form in which it is written, like when Romeo compares Juliet with light: "Doth teach tourches to burn right". Also when Juliet talkes with Romeo in the balcony scene: "How cam'st thou hither, tell me, and wherefore?"
Although the ending was very tragic we liked it because it was original. No one would think that the star-cross lovers would end with the feudge by commiting suicide.
In conclusion it is a long, difficult and boring book. We do not recomend it to you, students, if you read it without a teacher, expert or dictionary by your side. Thank you...
