ROMEO AND JULIET - TRAGEDY LOVE STORY OR BOTH Shakespeares tragedy Romeo and Juliet is the tale of two lovers who take their lives for each other when their love is hindered by their feuding parents After reading Romeo and Juliet apparently a tragedy I would say that this story contains aspects of both a love story and a tragedy The tale of two teenagers who fall in love at first sight and then marry become true lovers and then risk it all for their love cannot surely be all tragedy However it is a tragedy and has been called that for decades I will discuss with you what makes this story a tragedy and then what makes it a love story To begin the family Montague and the family Capulet had been locked in a feud for years even so that their servants fought on the street This is the tragedy that sets off the train of other misfortunes and if these conflicts were resolved none of the further things I am about to mention would have happened The tragedy of Romeos love for Rosalind she too was a Capulet and so that barred his love for her although she also did not love him Quite obviously the misfortune of Romeo and Juliets forbidden love This is the basis of the whole story For two people to love each other and not be able to show their true feelings for each other is ultimately very frustrating Its Guess Whos Coming To Dinner style The tragedy of Tybalts death Another result of the family fight this was a tragedy for all involved the Capulets and the Montagues because Romeo was banished from Verona The blight of the messenger not getting to Romeo in time Romeo just missing Juliet awakening is surely a tragedy To me this is one of the most frustrating things in the play because if he just waited two minutes
