Romeo & Juliet Essay?





Romeo & Juliet Essay?Hi, So I have an essay due for my year 11 assignment, the topic being:"Shakespeare was not of an age, but for all time..." I know where I am going with it, and am planning on talking about how in this age, societies expectations and values on love are based upon Shakespeare's works (my prescribed text being Romeo & Juliet), and how Shakespeare created (or brought to popularity) the stereotypical image of 'love at first sight, complication and tradgedy." I have got a few techniques to back it up as well.So my thesis is:"William Shakespeare's works have impacted societies desires, values and demands, and plays on the fantasies of the average individual through literary devices and themes of forbidden love, passion & tragedy, which in turn create the never-ending want for the unrealistic messages conveyed through his ageless way of writing.So I wanted to know what you all thought. :)I understand that not everyone will have the same views about this as me, but if you could help me out with this, it would be greatly appreciated.Oh, and Im not having a go at Shakespeare, I think his works are pretty awesome. I just don't like Romeo & Juliet. Its unrealistic, and isn't about love, but infatuation, and how important looks are in determining who you fall for. But hey, maybe Shakespeare was getting at the fact that society only cares about physical appearance? Idk. Thanks :)

    You have good, creative ideas. You can write well— with some polish that is necessary.Do not use sentences that spill over from one idea to tne next—in the same breath!Pay attention to grammar: written English is not the same as an easy-going, spoken style.I’d make your thesis as:”William shakespeare’s works have had a tremendous impact on the values, demands, and desires of society.

Sometimes his messages are unrealistic and unattainable.However, his literary style is so vivid and imaginative that it has stood the test of time, and has a captivating appeal to lirerary pundits even to this day! “Do you think that is any better?
