Romeo and Juliet Reviews

  • Foad

    توى هملت، وقتى بازيگراى تئاتر مى رسن به كاخ السينور، هملت به يكى از بازيگرها به شوخى مى گه: بانوى من، از آخرين بار كه شما را ديدم ريش در آورده ايد!

    توى پاورقى مترجم تذكر ميده كه دوره شكسپير، زن ها بازيگرى نمى كردن و امر قبيحى بوده بازيگرى زن ها. در نتيجه نقش زن ها رو پسرهاى نوجوان بازى مى كردن. و حرف هملت هم كنايه طنزآميزى به اين نكته است.

    توى فيلم "روزنكرنتز و گیلدنسترن مرده اند" (اقتباسى طنز از هملت) اين نكته به درستى رعايت شده و بازيگرهاى نمايش همه مرد هستن، ولى بعضى هاشون موهاشون رو بلند مى كن

    It is always so satisfying to read a book you've heard so much about throughout your life. You should have seen how excited I got when Juliet started saying "Romeo, o Romeo"!

    My first reaction when the read was over is why on earth it took me this long to read this beautiful work of Shakespeare having it physically with me all this long. Perhaps, I thought I didn't really need to read since I know the story from the movie adaptations I have watched. How foolish I have been! I had no idea what I had missed for this long.

    I have never enjoyed Shakespearean writing as much as I did in this play. It is passionate, lyrical and humorous. It is amazing that you find all the

    There is nothing romantic about Romeo & Juliet. If anything, this felt like an intentional mockery to me. So if anyone thinks this is categorized as Romance, I will stare at them like they've lost their heads.

    There have been debates about whether or not Romeo & Juliet is a satire. I'm 101% sure that this is a satirical play in which Shakespeare, the genius bastard, mocked and made fun of hot-headed, foolish teenagers. The man laughed in the face of insta-love (lust), and I laughed along

    As I looked over my previously read books and searched for one that was missing a review, Romeo and Juliet stood out to me. But then I thought about it... who doesn't know about this play? Who hasn't read it in school sometime in the past? Who hasn't watched a movie version or seen some sort of take on the classic tortured romance story? And why on earth would anyone care to read another review, let alone my review, on it? Exactly. So... don't look for much here as I'm sure most everyo

    Okay so I just watched the "new" Romeo and Juliet movie (the one with Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld) and thought "you know what I could really use a re-read of this".

    Ha such a good idea; one of my best. First off all I could think about the whole time I was reading it was Douglas Booth staring at me like this while he told me I smelled like roses and was the sun...



    (accidentally saved this picture as Romeow and I'm laughing so much harder than I should be about it)

    So the whole time I'm ...more

    “Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall.”

    ― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet



    It is hard to critique Romeo & Juliet since it is like family. It was the first Shakespeare many of us were introduced to. It seems like family. But reading Shakespeare this year in rough order, I see as Romeo & Juliet follow Richard II, Shakespeare grown large, lyrical, bold, steady, and sharp. He has mastered not just drama, but tamed English. He has broken poetry to his will. He re-oriented
