Shakespeare still lives!
Transcript of Shakespeare still lives!
In the music video the lead singer "Romeo" tosses rocks to "Juliet's" window. Juliet's parents don't aprove of their relationship and want her to stay away from him. In the music video they do anything to stop them from being together. It ends with Juliet sneaking out of her house through her window to see Romeo sing at a house party. Arthur Shakespeare references can even be found in kid cartoons like Arthur! In this epsiode of Arthur called "Kiss and Tell", it starts off with D.W "Juliet" waiting for Romeo on her balcony. Her imaginary friend is like the nurse in the play. You then see a man climbing up the vines to get to the balcony which is how Romeo gets to Juliet in the play. However once the man is on the balcony he says, "You're not Rapunzel! Hmm must be in the wrong balcony." and proceeds to climb out, but falling. In the episode Emily tells D.W about her trip and how her friend Pierre kissed her. She described it as feeling like a princess. D.W then throughout the episode tries to get her fellow classmate James to kiss her. During her chase, she asks Arthur if he knows anything about kissing, is when she spots "Romeo and Juliet" in Arthur's room. He briefly describes it to a curious D.W. James meanwhile doesn't know what she wants until the end is when he finally kisses her on the cheek. What's in a name? Reasoning behind The Hunger Games Names Ever realized how unusual the names are in The Hunger Games? Well I have the reasonings behind them! If you've seen the movie or read the books, you know who Cinna is. If you don't, he is Katniss's stylist for the interviews before and after the games. In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar there were two guys named "Cinna". One was a politician involved in the planning of killing Julius and the other was a poet who was murdered, mistakened for the other Cinna. The Cinna in THG was creative like the poet and maybe his name says he could also be a rebel against Panem? Other names also used in THG from Julius Ceaser are Cato, Portia, Octavia, and Flavia. New Moon "Star Crossed Lovers" The term "Star-crossed lovers" is from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet. This term in The Hunger Games is used to describe Peeta and Katniss's love foreachother; forbidden because they come from the same district and have to fight to the death where only one will remain. If they are in love, it will be pretty difficult to try and kill one another hence why the term "Star-crossed lovers from Distrcit 12" is used for them. In "Romeo and Juliet" the term was used because there was an old fueld between their families that forbade them from being together. Not even Stephenie Meyer could refrain from including a Shakespeare quote in her book. In "New Moon" she uses the wuote from "Romeo and Juliet", "These violent delightd have violent ends and in their triumph die like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume." In "Romeo and Juliet" Lawrence says it to Romeo when he askes Lawrence to marry him and Juliet. Stephenie Meyer used it because it demonstrates the end of Edward and Bella's relationship when Edward suddenly leaves and Bella's violent reaction to it.
