Hazlitt thinks Romeo and Juliet is a portrayal of how love in generations changes and goes threw an evolution and it cannot be defined (Hazlitt). Schlegel thinks Love in a romance is an ethereal authority looking over “Romeo and Juliet” and their private marital affairs, and it also a sign of a wretched end (Schlegel). “Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed enemy” (Shakespeare). Baker thinks Shakespeare tapped into his serious side of literature making Romeo and Juliet the “Perfect Tragedy” (Baker). A fairytale is a story in which the unexpected outcomes take place and leads to a happy ending.
Romeo and Juliet end up dead and the feud between the Montagues and Capulets is over. In the case of Shakespeare in Love, Will loses Viola but his love for her lives on as seen in his later writings. So, one could argue that in some instances love does indeed conquer all and, in other cases, it does not. Following the path of true love can be a tragic one as seen in Romeo and Juliet. As for Shakespeare in Love, both characters meet society's wishes and therefore return to their normal lives never being quite the same.
