Transcript of Pyramus and Thisbe

Pyramus and Thisbe A Forbidden Love Pyramus and Thisbe lived in a one-room home,
that was divided by a wall. Pyramus and Thisbe were
forbidden to see each other, their only way to communicate was through a crack in the wall that divided their homes. Modern Retellings
Allusions Shakespeare's
"Romeo and Juliet" Alexandre Demas'
"The Count of Monte Cristo" Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream. In Shakespeare's renowned
play of the "star-crossed", Romeo and Juliet meet, but are forbidden to be together. Which ultimately causes the death of both of them, and the end of the grudge between both families. A chapter is entitled "Pyramus and Thisbe", this was done to foreshadow the secret romance between Maximillion Morrel and Valentine de Villefort. An allusion to "Pyramus and Thisbe"
is present in "A Midsummer Night's Dream, with the theme of forbidden love present in that Hermia is not able to marry the man she loves. Pyramus was next to arrive, he spotted the lioness and the cloak of his dear Thisbe on the ground covered in blood. Feeling responsible for the death of Thisbe, he drew his sword and plunged it into his side, his blood splashing the nearby tree, and turning the white berries red. A Presentation by Alexander A. Gonzalez Angry with their parents for not allowing them to see each other,
Pyramus and Thisbe planned to elope.
They ran off to meet each other. Thisbe was the first to arrive, when she spotted a
lioness with a blood covered jaw.
She ran into a nearby cave dropping her cloak, for the lioness to soon find. Thisbe was returning to where she had spotted the lioness,
so that Pyramus would find her. She spotted a bloody body on the ground near her cloak, and realized who it was.
She wept his name, and with the last strength Pyramus had, he turned to Thisbe to look at her for the last time. To be with Pyramus forever, Thisbe took the sword that Pyramus had used, to pierce herself in the heart.
The Gods took pity upon the two of them and declared that from that day on the fruit of the mulberry would always turn crimson when it was ripe. The myth of Pyramus and Thisbe
was made to explain a
natural occurance. The Mulberry Tree's
berries always turn crimson red when the berries have become ripe. The Mulberry Tree's berries symbolize devotion of true love, as well as the sacrifice that the "star-crossed" lovers made to be together forever. http://prezi.com/vxr7dui7vmjk/edit/#27_4016306 To continue to the monsters,
