But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Romeo & Juliet dreamcast;
sophie turner as juliet
toby regbo as romeo
Juliet’s Dream - Abel Korzeniowski (Romeo & Juliet Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
With love’s light wings did I o’er-perch these walls;
For stony limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do that dares love attempt
i think a lot of people are just mad disillusioned about romeo and juliet and i think a lot of that comes from its being kind of packaged as “the greatest love story ever told” when it’s not even really so much about love as it is about the passion of young people and the ways in which they struggle with the stricture of their elders and the disconnect that exists between parents and their children and it also says a lot about how it isn’t the passion or the brashness of teenagers that causes all this destruction most of the time, it’s the parents, it’s the parents’ stupid fucking petty drama that ruins everything and honestly if you really look at it the parents are fighting for less than romeo and juliet are, we don’t even know how the feud between the capulets and the montagues started, but they see this feud as more important than cultivating relationships with their children
honestly it’s a play about adults thinking that they’re so much less swayed by their passions because they’re older and wiser when really they’re just as stupid if not stupider than their kids because they’d rather perpetuate a pointless feud because it feels good to be angry than open their eyes, see the stupidity of their situation, and pay attention to their fucking kids
Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?
Ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name,
When I, thy three-hours wife, have mangled it?
