A Love Story According to Shakespeare and Baz Lurhmann
Romeo and Juliet is one of William Shakespeare’s most famous works. It has been interpreted in movies and films but it has not lost its value, and remade countless times. Baz Luhrman’s and William Shakespeare’s versions of Romeo and Juliet are similar in theme and the language, but have some differences in setting, time period, and character personalities.

While there are a lot of similarities between the two versions, there are also many differences. One of the differences is the mood. The mood of the play is dark, romantic, sad, and dramatic. While the play has a few puns, the main focus of the play is to present a sad, depressing and dramatic story. The movie is much lighter and happier until the ending. The movie displays quite a few puns and the characters are always laughing or joking around. The play tries to focus on the dramatic and sad points while the movie tries to focus more on the happier aspects. 1. Papers should be typed if at all possible.
