Transcript of Shakespeare
Tragedies, on the other hand, always have sad endings. Shakespeare wrote many tragedies. Probably his most famous one is Romeo and Juliet.
Finally, the histories are plays that are about people or events in history. In Shakespeare’s history plays the facts were not always correct! For example, in Julius Caesar all the events happen on the same day. So in Shakespeare’s play, Caesar is murdered and buried on the same day! 1. How many plays did Shakespeare write? 2. What are the 3 types of play called? 3. What is the difference between a tragedy and a comedy? 4. What type of play was Twelfth Night? 5. What was Shakespeare's most famous tragedy? 6. Why are Shakespeare's history plays strange? Are you good at breaking the ice? Do you think it's a good skill to have? Do you ever get the green-eyed monster? Do you know anyone who does? Have you ever been given short shrift? Have you ever given it to someone else? Can you remember a time when you have said 'Good riddance!' to someone or something? Have you ever been hoist with your own petard ? A scientific study carried out in 2004 claimed to prove that love at first sight is a true phenomenon and that many people decide what kind of relationship they want within minutes of meeting someone. Apparently, in some cases, it can only take a few seconds for a person to decide that someone is going to be the love of their life.
One wonders whether this feeling will last, whether love will blossom and whether people who meet in these circumstances will remain madly in love or head over heels in love for long periods of time. Perhaps they have a love nest where they can conduct a love affair, although this will clearly mean that they are not married, at least to each other. Sometimes such affairs are conducted in public and it can be embarrassing for other people to watch lovebirds who are all lovey-dovey in public.
Occasionally a third person may be involved and a love triangle may develop, which may end in tears for all concerned. Years later there may be no love lost between the former lovers . Of course there are many people who would not contemplate an illicit relationship for love nor money and even if they have a love-hate relationship with their partner, they remain together. Shakespeare observed that “the course of true love never did run smooth” and it seems to be the case that people can fall out of love just as quickly as they can fall in love with someone. Romeo and Juliet is a play about two enemy families in Verona: the Montagues and the Capulets. Romeo, a young man from the Montague family falls in love with Juliet, a young woman from the Capulet family. Shakespeare wrote this tragedy in about 1595.
