Romeo and Juliet vs. Warm Bodies
Romeo and Juliet
In Romeo and Juliet, there is a scene where they talk from Juliet's balcony. At first, Juliet can not find where Romeo is and she overhears him. This is where the famous quote "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" comes from. As Romeo and Juliet talk during this scene, they officially decide that they are going to get married.
In Warm Bodies, there is a part in the book that is much like the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet. This is when R goes to warn Julie that the bonies are coming to get her. They do this from under Julie's balcony, just like Romeo was speaking to Juliet from under her balcony.
Which Version I Liked Better:
I personally liked the Romeo and Juliet version of the balcony scene. I feel that it really showed just how much Romeo and Juliet love each other. In my opinion, the Romeo and Juliet version was the best because it was the original. You really got to see how much they love each other and just how fast they fell in love as well. Overall, I liked the Romeo and Juliet version as well. I liked the way it was written better and it made more sense.
The Idea of Star Crossed Lovers:
The idea of star crossed lovers is this according to the Urban Dictionary: two people that care immensely for each other but due to their circumstances can not be together.
Romeo and Juliet: Romeo and Juliet are star crossed lovers because of their families' pasts. The Caplets and the Montagues hated each other, which meant that they could not be together without their families having something to say about it. However, in a way they were able to get past their families' differences and love each other until the day that they died.
Warm Bodies: R and Julie were examples of star crossed lovers as well. This is because zombies are not supposed to fall in love with humans. However, R and Julie end up falling in love anyway; despite their differences and despite what is supposed to be.
Why Romeo and Juliet was Written:
Romeo and Juliet was written because Shakespeare wanted to show the idea of how love can be stronger than anything else in the world when you really love someone. It can overcome even the nastiest of fights. It also proved that love can blind someone, which in this love story caused the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Why Warm Bodies was Written:
Warm Bodies was written for almost the same exact reason Romeo and Juliet was written. Isaac Marion wanted to show that star crossed lovers (in this case zombies and humans) can make it in the world. This is pretty much exactly like Romeo and Juliet. Both of these stories were written in the idea of star crossed lovers.
