Romiette & Julio Themes
R & J Themes
Violence can cause death because one fights til the end.

Love can cause brutal endings because of others opinions.

" Suddenly her arms were jerked tightly behind her." " She cried out in pain as the tied the ropes around her wrists and arms." (page 256)
Often fate can have bad consequences because it is destined to happen and it is not anyone's choice.
“Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. (Act 5 Scene 3)“

" Nothing.That's just it. He's new. And he's not black." ( page 146)
”Thou , wretched boy, that didst consort him here shalt with him hence” “ This shall determine that”( Act 3 Scene

“Romeo, there dead, was husband to that Juliet, And she, there dead, that Romeo’s faithful wife. (Act 5 Scene 3)."
The author of Romiette and Julio draws on and transforms Romeo and Juliet by making it a modern story. We think that teens today could relate more to Romiette and Julio.
