ROMEO AND JULIET Consumed by Fire - by Scott Walters I hate and I love Why I do so perhaps you ask I know not but I feel it and I am in torment Gaius Valerius Catullus Too hot too hot William Shakespeare The Winters Tale For a love story Romeo and Juliet has more violence and bloodshed than most TV mini-series The play begins with a riot ends with a double suicide and in between has three murders And all this takes place in the span of four short days Of course when youre dealing with love and passion youre operating on an elemental level The funny thing is that they have their roots in the same soil How many times have you seen love turn to hate and vice versa in the blink of an eye Love and hate are twin sons of different mothers separated at birth They have a doubleness This ambiguity is reflected throughout Romeo and Juliet whose language is riddled with oxymorons O brawling love O loving hate Romeo cries in the plays very first scene using a figure of speech and setting up a theme that will be played out during the next five acts Like the poles of an electrical circuit between which runs the high voltage of emotions love and hate create a dialogue and a dialectic a dynamic tension which powers the action and generates heat Hot Enough for You When I noticed that two of the plays this season had settings in Verona I decided to find out a thing or two about the place Reading the section on climate in Harold Roses rather chatty book Your Guide to Northern Italy I noted that Italy is very hot in summer and that Rose recommends that the smart traveler should avoid August if you can because it is the hottest month
