How does conflict reveal the message the message of the play? Conflict is shown throughout the whole play as it starts right from the beginning in the prologue. It explains the conflict between the two families and continues throughout the play despite the love Romeo and Juliet have for each other. Other examples of conflict in the play would be the internal conflict in Juliet as she is a capulet and has fallen in love with a Montague and explains that its fate and Juliet cant control what happens but she cant help to feel the conflict within herself even though its destined to happen.
Body paragraphs 1. Explaining the conflict between the two families (Montagues and capulets) Quote “Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,” Prolouge 2. Juliets internal conflict. Quote ” my only love sprung from my only hate, too early seen unknown and known too late” Juliet 3. 4. .
ROMEO “Some consequence yet hanging in the stars Shall bitterly begin his fearful date With this night’s revels, and expire the term”
Just before Romeo heads over to the Capulet ball, where he falls in love with and meets Juliet, he tells us that he has a funny feeling—like something “hanging in the stars” (something destined to happen) will get moving. Uh-oh. We have a feeling, too—a bad feeling.
Juliet “If he be married my grave is like to be my wedding bed.” Juliet see Romeo and it was at love at first and explains of Romeo is married she will refuse to marry anyone and would rather die.
JULIET My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me That I must love a loathèd enemy. (1.5.152-155)
ROMEO, rising up Spakest thou of Juliet? How is it with her? Doth she not think me an old murderer, Now I have stained the childhood of our joy With blood removed but little from her own? Where is she? And how doth she? And what says My concealed lady to our cancelled love? (3.3.101-106)
JULIET O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
Romeo and Juliet uses conflict and opposites expand its ideas.
Character in Romeo and Juliet are not always what they seem. ” Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not. Be sworn my love, and ill no longer be a capulet”- Juliet
Characters in Romeo and Juliet aren’t always what they seem. Juliet is men’t to be capulets little daughter who respects his rules and morals but as time goes on she falls in love at first sight as she sees Romeo a member of their families enemy. As Juliet states ” Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not. Be sworn my love, and i’ll no longer be a capulet.”. Juliet then betrays her father and continues to be with Romeo. Juliet is also abandoning her name and her family.
Romeo and Juliet explores the complex relationship between fate and free will. ” what if this mixture does not work at all? shall i be married then tomorrow morning? No, no shall forbid it; lie thou there.” – Juliet
Romeo and Juliet explores the complex relationship between fate and free will as Juliet is worried that her and Romeo aren’t for each other but fate has put them together. Juliet has a little bit of guilt in her stomach as she knows she’s betraying her family but she understands her love for Romeo and wants to be with him forever. Juliet- ” What if this mixtures does not work at all? shall I be married then tomorrow morning? No, no shall forbid it; lie thou there.”.
Shakespeare language is where his true genius lies. “if he be married my grave is like to be my wedding bed” – juliet ” blind is his love, and best befits the dark”
Luc Besson uses cinematographic techniques to control the audience perception of key characters in many ways. Besson uses camera shots, angles and movement, special effects and sound. Plava Laguna is a perfect example as there are many techniques used to make the audience perceive her in a good and delicate way. Other characters such as Corbin, Leeloo and the Mangalors will also be discussed in the following.
Plava laguna is looked at to have an unbelievable voice superior to any other human, with a mysterious vibe and perceived to be good. Her emotion and feeling have been shown using camera shots, angles and movement and sound. As Plava Laguna is filmed when performing up on the stage, at the start most are mid shots at level angle but as she builds, Besson adds more angles and shots including tracking, zoom, tilt, low angles, level angles and more. The first consideration Besson looked into was where to place the camera which should involve knowing what emotion you want the audience to experience at that particular time. Besson used mostly level angle for Plava laguna at the start to make the audience see her as if they saw her in real life. The level angle shot is said to be more honest, friendly and straight forward. The level angle gives the audience a clear view of her facials and emotion so this angle is used a lot. As we know using only level angle would get boring but as there starts to be more action going on, the shots and camera angles switch up. The zoom is used on Plava Laguna after the assistant got shot. As the camera zooms she looks like she get more energy and more emotional in her voice. Plava Laguna facials also tell a part of how she is feeling as the camera zooms right up onto her face.
Shot 1: Mid shot, Waiter, Level angle, Zoom
Shot 2: Long shot, auditorium, Over the shoulder shot, No camera Movement
Above me I see the grey stormy sky loom over me. Getting my last banana in my anxious stomach stimulates my nerves. The injection in my arm which makes me irritable, powerful and energetic all in one emotion. The crowd, who is screaming violently and loudly gives me the extra rush of adrenaline. The consequences go through my mind of losing, there is no way I will let my country down. The speech at the opening ceremony replays through my head ” this year we are taking it to the next level, the country that has the least gold medals will be taken over by the country that has most gold medals, don’t let your country down” The echo of this one sentence will continue to hunt me. As it replays in my head my race number is called.
I walk to my track lane as my heart is beating more than ever, my hands are placed either side of my body as I crutch down to wait for the starter pistol. Boom, the starter pistol bullet flies up into the air as I spring up and pump my legs. Beyond I see nothing but the crowd, no one in sight. Every part of my body is eager to get to the finish line which motivates me even more to keep sprinting my heart out. Only a few meters ahead of me I identify a thick long piece of red ribbon spread across the finish line, I prepare myself to dig it in for those last few strides, all of a sudden my head crosses the line as my body follows. The ribbon wrapped around my waist I raise my arms in victory. Abruptly I realise the shortness of my breathing gets worse as my chest starts to tighten and a squeezing sensation in my chest occurs. The sharp horrendous pain spreads throughout my body. I start to panic as I can’t control my body, I fall to the ground. My eyes become blurry and dreary as I hear voices surround me. Now I see and feel nothing.
Beneath me I feel what seems to be like a really hard bed. As my eyelid try to open it feels like i’m trying to lift weights off my eyes. I feel a smooth hand clench onto mine as my eyes finally open, I see my mum who looks absolutely exhausted. Her eyes catch mine as I see that she has a tears rolling down her cheek. Only a few minutes after I had woken my coach enters the room along with a doctor and a nurse. Firstly they ask me how i’m feeling which had to have been a foolish question to ask at this point. They explain to me that I had a very severe heart attack and that i’m lucky to be alive, I see mum who is in the corner holding in her tears. All I can remember is how nervous I was at the start of the race and from there on its all a blur, I don’t even know how I did in my final. Thoughts race through my mind but all my body can cope right now is sleep I try to stay awake to talk to my coach but I feel so muggy, lethargic and sore. The disinfectant smell of the hospital reminds of the time my dad unfortunately passed away, and reminds me of why i’m really here. As I fight to stay awake I gaze out the window and see the jagged buildings and the sky finally become clear and and warming, my coach once again enters my room with a coffee. The smell of coffee fulfilled my room. ” Coach Henry may I ask why you are so happy at this exact moment?” I say with a confused look on my face, and Henry explains his excitement by saying ” I have very exciting news but I must wait until I have been given this gift for you”. What he said did not make total sense to me, what is it he has to give me.
Around me I see buildings mirror the ice cold water as I sneak towards the intimidating, damp prison . Outside the gates the men effortlessly stand in strict uniforms with dogs trained well. The smooth reliable tarcel creates the butterflies in my stomach. My eyes gaze out the window as the car breaks and mums window screeches its way down. The guard gets straight to it asking for identification.
I See the lenses fogging up
Terror: I try to look ahead but i see nothing but fog.
Fun: I can see nothing but blue as i rush down the waterslide Smell I smell the chlorine lingering in my hair.
Terror: I can smell the chlorine as it gushes over my head
Fun: I smell the chlorine which reminds me of my favourite memories Taste I taste the liquid gushing into my mouth
Terror: I taste nothing but chemicals as I start choking
Fun: I can taste the chlorine that gushes into my mouth as i zoom around the corners. Hear I hear the water splashing around me
Terror: I Hear nothing around me.
Fun: I hear the screams and laughter of the kids around me Touch I feel the coldness become warm.
Terror: I feel the coldness come over me as I sink further down.
Fun: I can hardly feel my face as my eyes are squished.
