In this essay we will discuss about the 1996 film version of Romeo and Juliet which addressed the new young generation starring Claire Danes as Juliet and Leonardo Di Caprio as Romeo. We will discuss whether the 1996 film version update the Shakespeare’s play or distort it and whether the film helped the audience to connect with the play or did it change the play beyond recognit... ... middle of paper ... ... because Luhrmann created the same message what Shakespeare did with his Language. This was important because modern audience cannot relate with Shakespeare’s language. The way he transformed Shakespeare’s words in images was incredible and it recalled the same emotions, but as far as the text is concerned, the film is still farthest from the play.

The Taming of the Shrew, written by William Shakespeare, is historical proof that flirting and temptation, relating to the opposite sex, has been around since the earliest of times. Because males and females continue to interact, the complications in this play remain as relevant and humorous today as they did to Elizabethan audiences. This is a very fun play, full of comedy and sexual remarks. It's lasting impression imprints itself into the minds of its readers, for it is an unforgettable story of sex, flirting, and happiness. The Taming of the Shrew remains as relevant today because of its relation to the age-old story of the battle of the sexes and dynamics of marriage, as well as the woman's struggle with both of these.
One of the distinguishing factors in portraying Titus centers in its origin: "Titus Andronicus [...] must be considered as an experimental play" (Bowers 118). Being Shakespeare's first attempt at tragedy, it obviously has room for error. Yet, as some critics and scholars would say, I believe there is a similar element found in all of Shakespeare's works, no matter when they were written: "Shakespeare constantly reminds us that the character's predicament and humanity is very like our own" (Barton 184). No matter what the plot is, or where he chose to set the story, Shakespeare captures a fundamental element of humanity. Within Titus Andronicus, it is undoubtedly humanity's search for revenge: "Titus Andronicus is a play of social piety, outrage, suffering, and revenge" (Barber 133).
