Revenge

Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet. The two families have had a feud going on for a while. When the Capulets throw a party, the Montagues decides to go. Romeo instantly fall in love and get married. Juliets dad tried to set her up with Paris. Juliet refuses and drinks a potion to make it look like she is dead. Romeo does not know about it because a letter that was sent to him did not arrive. he finds her and kills himself. She wakes up to him dead and kills herself.

Example 1:

In act III scene one, Romeo kills Tybalt. This was only for getting revenge. When Tybalt killed Mercutio, Romeo ran after him and killed him.

Example 2: (act 2 scene 4)

Benvolio- "Tybalt, the kinsman to old Capulet, hath sent a letter to his father's house."

Mercutio- " A challenge on my life"

When Tybalt saw Romeo at the party, he wanted to kill him but Capulet said no. He sent a letter to Romeo saying that he wanted to fight. He wanted revenge on Romeo for coming to a Capulet Party.

Example 3: (act 3 scene 1)

When Mercutio dies he repeats "A plague on both your houses'' This is kind of like revenge because he is cursing both houses because he dies.

Example 4:

In Romeo and Juliet: Sealed with a kiss, Paris chases Romeo when he sees Romeo dancing with Juliet. He tries to hurt him for dancing with his "future wife.''

Example 5: (act 2 scene 4)

Mercutio tries to get revenge on Tybalt for making fun of Romeo and the Montagues by fighting him, but gets stabbed and died.

This song is "Picture to Burn" by Taylor swift. In the song she is talking about how she is going to revenge on one of her old boyfriends. This goes in with my theme because of the topic. One line says "So watch me strike a match on all my wasted time," this is like when Tybalt sends a letter to Romeo wanting to draw (fight). Another line says "There's no time for tears, I'm just sitting here planning my revenge," which is saying she is gonna get revenge on somebody. This song overall is about revenge, which is why I picked it.
