By: Taylor Woodward

In the tragic play, Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, Kausse states that “two star-crossed teenagers find one another, fall madly in love and despite their well-thought-out plans, are destroyed by their parents hate as well as other forces beyond their control.” Kausse believes that the “parents hate” is the reason for the teens demise, but it’s actually because of love. Romeo and Juliet never thought through their plans, they were spontaneous. After reading “Romeo and Juliet, any meticulous reader can come to the conclusion that Romeo and Juliet can’t control their emotions. Situations arose and got the best of them.

Kausse simply makes bogus statements on “Romeo and Juliet” and just has stated his own opinions. The critic does not even give support on why he thinks the play is a “tragedy because two star crossed teenagers find one another, fall madly in love and despite their well-thought-out plans, are destroyed by their parents hate as well as other forces beyond their control.” After reading, “Romeo and Juliet, any meticulous reader can come to the conclusion that Romeo and Juliet can’t control their emotions.
