Transcript of THE MAIN THEMES OF ROMEO AND JULIET

A theme is an idea that recurs in or peruades a work of art or literature
THEME 1: LOVE
I will be constructing my project around three of the main themes from Shakespeares renowned play 'Romeo and Juliet'.

But before we start, what is a theme?
THEME 1: LOVE CONTD..
In this scene Juliet is expressing her emotions for Romeo. Her love for Romeo is comfirmed when she says " Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet." Juliet is saying that if Romeo promises that he truly loves her, that she will discard her family name just so she can have a peaceful relationship with him without any issues. In my opinion love is 'Romeo and Juliets' strongest and most important theme' as it reoccurs continously throughout the play.
THEME 2: DEATH
THEME 2: DEATH CONTD....
I felt like it might have been the best thing for them at the time. At least now they can be together in a place where the names Montague and Capulet don't matter.
THE MAIN THEMES OF ROMEO AND JULIET
BY CAOIMHE BRADY 2B
INTRODUCTION
THE MAIN THEMES
In my opinion the main themes of Romeo and Juliet include.....
Love
Death
The inevibility of fate
Throughout this powerpoint presentation I am going to elucidate each theme in detail
The dictionary explains love as having a strong affection for something or someone. Love is what Romeo and Juliet is based on. It is about two young star crossed lovers who fall in love against their parents will. Their love for each other is so strong that they will do anything to be with each other. That is true love, wanting to be with that person no matter what the circumstances. We first find out that Juliet loves Romeo in act 2 scene 2, also known as 'The Balcony Scene'.
Death is a reoccuring theme throughout 'Romeo and Juliet'. If a main character isn't dying another character is discussing suicide. Both Romeo and Juliet make alot of references to suicide throughout the play. For example Juliet is willing to commit suicide to avoid marrying Paris. Alot of the main characters die throughout the play, which I didn't particularly like. As soon as you start to like or notice a character, the next thing you know they're dead. Although I was devastated when both Romeo and Juliet died I was also kind of relieved.
THEME 3: THE INEVITABILITY OF FATE
word count: 580 words
The last theme of 'Romeo and Juliet' is The Inevibility of Fate. In the first scene the chorus describe both Romeo and Juliet as being star-crossed lovers. That means that both Romeo and Juliets lives were controlled by fate. This would mean that no matter how Romeo or Juliet lived their lives, they would still in the end fall in love with each other and die as it was written in their stars. In act 5 scene 1 when Romeo is told about Juliet's death he says " Then I defy your stars." What Romeo is saying is " Then I rebel against your stars." Romeo says this as he is irritated with his stars and fate as it isn't allowing him to spend eternity with Juliet. But fate didn't just play a destructive role in 'Romeo and Juliet.' After all faith is what brought Romeo and Juliet together in the first place.
