: Can someone plz e-mail me a quote from shakespeare, or anything that has to do with tragic hero, specifically romeo. I am writing an essay, and i'm looking for a good introduction, somewhere along the lines of, what makes a tragic hero, tis more nobler to die for love then to die for oneself, or anything that would do as a good opening. I really need help, so plz e-mail me, i'd greatly appreciate it.

But what do YOU think? Wouldn't you be better off with your own point to view, instead of borrowing someone else's words? Opinions about Romeo vary all over the place: some see him as the embodiment of tragic hero; others find evidence to call him an immature, impulsive fool, thinking with his glands (not exactly a rare affliction for teenage boys with a crush, and hardly the stuff of tragedy). I'd be willing to guess you're not far from Romeo in age; If you were Mercutio, how would you advise your friend? Are the ancient hatreds of the two families impossible to overcome? Is Romeo just a byproduct of the gang warfare?

And yo dude work on the spelling before you turn in the essay. Plz.
