Written in old English (Shakespearean language) and in iambic pentameter.
Written in formal, modern day English.
Protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, chose their deaths; they committed suicide.
Protagonist, Tessie Hutchinson, was stoned to death by the other villagers.
Quote from
Romeo and Juliet
Juliet says to Romeo, "Methinks I see thee, now art thou so low, As one dead in the bottom of a tomb" (3.5.56-57).
Quote from
The Lottery
"Mrs. Hutchinson reached her husband and Mr. Summers who had been waiting , said cheerfully, 'Thought we were going to have to get on without you, Tessie'" (lines 212-216).
There is pathetic fallacy when Benvolio says, "For now these hot days is the mad blood stirring" (3.1.4).
There is the opposite of pathetic fallacy when it says in the text, "The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with the fresh warmth of a full summer day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green" (lines 1-5).

Only one death in total
Trigger incident: Romeo comes home and tells Benvolio he's in love.
Trigger Incident: the town holds a lottery on June 27th.
Another theme or topic in
Romeo and Juliet
is suicide. When Romeo thought that Juliet was dead, he chose to drink the poison because he didn't want to live without her. Also, when Juliet woke up in the tomb and saw Romeo dead, she stabbed herself because she wanted to reunite in death with him. Both characters did not want to go through the grief of losing each other they decided to kill themselves to be together.
One unit of study we did is
Romeo and Juliet
I can connect to
Romeo and Juliet
because I used to be very impatient like the protagonists, Romeo and Juliet. When I was younger, I could never wait calmly for something I wanted. I would always complain a lot and it would annoy my parents.
Romeo and Juliet are like this because they didn't want to be patient and take time to wisely think about their decisions.
An example that I can really relate to is the scene with Juliet and her nurse. I am like this because I would ask my parents a question when they were busy. It would take them a long time to reply because they had to do their work. Since I was impatient it would ask them over and over again.
This relates to the world through the suicide of a woman named Brittany Maynard. She had recently passed away on November 1st at the age of 29. Brittany had brain cancer and there was no cure for it so she was given about 6 more months to live. To end her physical and emotional suffering faster she decided to take her own life. She used lethal drugs to end her life, just like Romeo did.
This relates to
Romeo and Juliet
because, they committed suicide out of love. Brittany Maynard also took her life out of love for her friends and and family. She didn't want her family to go through the emotional pain of seeing her sick so she ended her life instead.
