Transcript of Romeo and Juliet compared to The Notebook.

In literature, the story The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is a great example of an allusion to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In The Notebook, Noah and Allie were forbidden to love each other because of statue. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet’s and Romeo’s families are in an ancient feud. Therefore, they were forbidden lovers.
The Forbidden Love
“It was an improbable romance. He was a country boy. She was from the city. She had the world at her feet while he didn't have two dimes to rub together.” says Duke in The Notebook. Shakespeare’s writing is similar when the Nurse say, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague,The only son of your great enemy.” Juliet answers with, “My only love sprung from my only hate!Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me,That I must love a loathèd enemy.” (1.5.136-142).
In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is banish from Verona. "And for that offence
Immediately we do exile him hence ."(3.1.148-149).
"Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banishèd.
Romeo that killed him—he is banishèd."(3.2.70-71),the Nurse says to Juliet. In The Notebook, Noah takes Allie to the "dream house" and her parents become worried when she hasnt returned home yet. Allie is brought back to the summer house and her father tells her that she is to never see Noah again. In this context it is as if Allie's father is almost banishing Allie from Noah.
In Love For Forever..
In the end, both stories end remotely the same. They both die for each other. Even though in The Notebook Noah dies of a broken heart, he is still dying for Allie. In Romeo and Juliet, they die for each other in the end. Juliet stabs herself for Romeo because he is her only true love.
In the End
So in the end, The Notebook is a very nice example to use when comparing the context its text to Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet compared to The Notebook.
"Noah and Allie gave a remarkably convincing portrayal of a boy and a girl traveling down a very long road with no regard for the consequences." -Duke
In Romeo and Juliet, the two children from the feuding households don't stop and think about the consequences that will happen with their actions. "My ears have not yet drunk a hundred words. Of that tongue’s uttering, yet I know the sound. Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague?" Juliet asks. "Neither, fair maid, if either thee dislike." Romeo responds with.(2.2.58-61). They continue on with, "Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow. By one that I’ll procure to come to thee. Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite." (2.2.145-147).
