Romeo and Juliet: Themes
In this title we will be looking at some of the themes that Shakespeare has chosen to focus on in this play. The most important of these is young love, and Romeo and Juliet has survived as a great love story. Shakespeare is sympathetic towards the two young lovers. They defy the conventions of Elizabethan life, but it is clear that their love is genuine. The play seems to be composed of a number of opposites, for example love and hate or youth and age. These oppositions cause divisions which it seems cannot be overcome, and in the end they bring about the tragedy. As well as this we will look at the role of fate in the play. Events conspire against Romeo and Juliet and they cannot avoid the fate allocated to them, making their deaths inevitable.
