Romeo and Juliet
Research papers on Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare show the problem of the play is that the two lovers, Romeo and Juliet, are the offspring of noble, feuding, Veronese houses. In your research paper, tell how Romeo, of the House of Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, meet at a Capulet banquet which Romeo attends disguised. After the famous “balcony scene” the two are secretly married.
The Romeo and Juliet research paper should then report that Romeo is banished from Verona because, after Tybalt of the Capulets kills his best friend, Mercutio, Romeo kills Tybalt. Juliet’s father, unaware of the marriage pushes her to marry another. Friar Lawrence devises a stratagem whereby Juliet will, as a result of drinking a potion, appear to be dead for over a day and a half. The friar sends a message to Romeo that tells of this device, but it does not reach Romeo. The climax of the Romeo and Juliet research paper should discuss how, thinking Juliet dead, Romeo takes poison (after killing Juliet’s would-be husband) in the presence of what he thinks is Juliet’s corpse and dies. She awakens, sees his body, and kills herself. All of this causes the two houses to reconcile.
