Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet is a tragic tale centered around the theme of passion, and the consequences when one acts on too much of of it. The picture in the top left shows Tybalt slaying Mercutio, which is the result of Tybalt's passionate hate towards Romeo. Romeo is then torn with grief at the loss of his best friend and in turn kills Tybalt, which can be seen in the top right. The death of Tybalt leads to Romeo being banished from Verona, and as a result Juliet is heartbroken. Juliet's passionate love for Romeo leads to her faking her death, so that she wouldn't have to marry Paris. Thinking Juliet is dead, Romeo kisses her one last time before drinking a vial of poison and dying. Juliet awakens to her dead lover, and draws Romeo's dagger before following her lover into the afterlife. Thus Romeo and Juliet commit suicide in the name of love.

Romeo and Juliet: A Tale of Passion"Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied, And vice sometime’s by action dignified."-Friar Laurence (Act II, Scene III, 23-24)Everything in moderation. Even something good can become bad and something bad can be used for good."Here’s to my love! [Drinks.] O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. [Dies.]"-Romeo (Act V, Scene III, 122-123)"This is thy sheath; [Stabs herself.] there rest, and let me die. [Falls on ROMEO’S body and dies.]"-Juliet (Act V, Scene III, 179)
