I agree with you - Romeo and Juliet did nothing for me and my career. Waste of time - it's so the teachers can take a break away from their students.... Romeo and Juliet is soooo BORING, to me anyway...
it is a story about two horny teenagers, perfect to relate too
Classic Shakespearen play that young people can relate to. The play can be analyzed in so many ways and it is a great teaching tool!
Because Shakespeare was an influential writer, and since teh characters are of the high school age, students will relate to them.
I don't know, I think its boring, but that was what my teacher said.
Because it shows the maturity that high school students must have in order to read it. It illustrates the line between high school and middle school....
Because it was written by Shakespeare and it is one of the most famed authors and play rights ever written. It is one of the most beautiful piece of literature you will ever read.
Because it's one of the few Shakespearean plays that high schoolers find easy to understand and can relate to.
Now why should Shakespeare be in the curriculum? Because he was a brilliant author who employed many literary devices in his writing.
PLEASE WHEN YOU GET THE ANSWER TO THAT, PLEASE TELL ME! How do we even understand Shake's language?! How do we understand how we translate it? It is obsolete!
can you give a GOOD reason that it should not be?
I mean...god forbid you actually do something to boost your intelligence! What is the problem? Are the words to big? The story line to mushy?? Reading enhances your vocabulary, builds your reading skills and helps to make you a more intelligent person.
Does that scare you??
Obscelete eh? Perhaps you should have paid better attention. It is a piece of classic literature...in its day it was considered that of todays box office smash! It also helps you to understand both the language of the day...and the fact that human emotion doesn't change. Boring? Hmmm....love, emotion, suicide.....uh, isn't that the same thing todays movies are made of?
Is it hard to understand...no, not really. The language is different, but, what's wrong with making you think? God forbid you do that! Perhaps a better reading would be an article based on the whining and hard-headed youth of today that think they know everything. If you could only imagine how we adults feel knowing that you are our future leaders. But at least we are still one up on you children...us adults know that payback is a _____. So, consider that your children will do 2 times what you did to your parents...then apply that to life...and imagine where you will end up eventually. At least most of us know that we bit our lip and did our work...even boring Shakespeare...and got where we are now. We will say a prayer for the rest of you!
Well, i think it will be added in the curriculum it is because romeo and juliet expresses the real quality of art and infact, it shows and represent a novel kind of art that is our conserve talents as human being!
Classic author, beautiful writing, explores themes about morality and class division. Like a 16th century "The Outsiders".
Watch "West Side Story". THAT'S what "Romeo and Juliet" is, without the complex language.
Because the other two choices are the Koran or the Dead Sea Scrolls....
romeo and Juliet should be included in the school curriculum because Shakespeare contributed a lot of words to the English dictionary. about 3 thousand of the words we use today were created by Shakespeare and cam from the popular plays like romeo and Juliet. romeo and Juliet is written in the most poetic way to help teens understand that when writing poetry they don't always have to be specifically clear in what they are trying to say. it's more about the grammar and vocabulary of this play and not really the plot.
I think becuase it opens up a new language. I read it last year as a freshman in highschool. I tought it was boring. I did like the movie with Dicaprio though. I guess it also shows how passionate teens were then compared to having sex now. I guess it is a classic.
It is a shake spear play that still holds some relevance in modern society. Its is something students can relate to and its is a extremely well written story. Its basically a perfect teaching tool because of the storyline. I know it was boring but it is still a classic and should not be thrown away lightly. School is boring, that's is a fact. It may help you out but its still boring and i do think that people do get something out of Romeo and Juliet even if they don't realise that they did.
