Romeo and Juliet SYMBOLS -- Wm. Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet" ... from 60second Recap®

[ Sound like a genius ... in 60 seconds.? http://www.60secondrecap.com ] William Shakespeare did not write plays like "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" for the benefit of historians, or literary scholars, or even kids in high school. No, he wrote his plays to entertain the ticket-buying mobs that crowded his theater and paid his bills. He packed his stories with symbols, but not necessarily because he wanted to make a literary statement. No, he just wanted to make sure that the people who bought tickets to his plays could follow his often-convoluted plots. And sometimes a symbol really is worth a thousand words. Or, at least, 60 seconds.
