Truth

I agree! When I taught “Romeo & Juliet” I used it to teach that Revenge only causes more grief. I thought the statement by the priest at the end “All are punished” is absolutely true. Everyone lost in this story.
Someday, I hope to write the story of Mercutio. He was by far the most interesting character in the play. He was a wise and loving young man! 😉 ❤
Peace, love & justice for all,

    You’re an English professor, aren’t you? Because you were SPOT ON in your interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. I would LOVE to see Mercutio’s perspective on this story. I’m sure he would be SIGHING and FACEPALMING for most of it.

      High school English teacher, but if you speak Spanish, yes, I am una professor!
      Mercutio is the coolest character in the entire play, possibly coolest all-time Shakespeare character. And Romeo EVEN caused his death! His best friend! What a little tool he is!
      Peace, love & NO REVENGE,

        Hablo un poco español, actualmente. Usted es una profesora de inglés en la escuela secondaria. (You are a high school professor of English.)

        As much as I like Mercutio, I prefer Hamlet. Hamlet is quite the emo character who eventually gets out of his slump.
