ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES

ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES

Since the invention of the motion picture in 1894, Romeo and Juliet has been one of the most popular stories in films. Numerous movies have been based on Shakespeare’s famous love story, the earliest dating back to 1900. Many directors have taken this famous play and мейд it into a ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES film, trying to keep to the themes of the original story.

One of them is BazLuhrmann. His version of Romeo and Juliet, produced in 1996, has been described as an original, post-modern version of Shakespeare’s tragic love story.

With this extremely successful film, Luhrmann has managed to update the story ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES - by combining modern-day settings and characters with almost the original language. The story is set in Miami. The changes in the language, together with dramatic gun fights and passionate love scenes, make the story more accessible to modern audiences.

In Luhrmann’s version of the film ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES, the main characters, Romeo (Leonardo di Caprio) and Juliet (Clare Danes), are Miami teenagers of the nineties. Even though the setting of the film is very unconventional, it contains all the themes of the original version, because it does not change the story at all.

IT’S ONLY ME

After her husband had gone to work, Mrs Richards sent her children to school and went upstairs to her bedroom. She was too excited to do any housework that morning, because in the ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES evening she would be going to a fancy dress party with her husband. She intended to dress up as a ghost and she had мейд her costume the night before. Now she was impatient to try it on. Though the costume consisted only of a sheet, it ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES was very effective. Mrs Richards put it on, looked in the mirror, smiled and went downstairs. She wanted to find out whether it would be comfortable to wear.

Just as Mrs Richards was entering the dining-room, there was a knock on the front door. She knew that it must be ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES the baker. She had told him to come straight in if ever she failed to open the door and to leave the bread on the kitchen table. Not wanting to frighten the poor man, Mrs Richards quickly hid in the small store-room under the stairs. She ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES heard the front door open and heavy footsteps in the hall. Suddenly the door of the store-room was opened and a man entered. Mrs Richards realized that it must be the man from the Electricity Board who had come to read the meter. She tried to explain the ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES situation, saying 'It's only me', but it was too late. The man let out a cry and jumped back several paces. When Mrs Richards walked towards him, he ran away, slamming the door behind him.

MANUSCRIPTS

When Martin Eden returned to San Francisco, he began to write. He sent his works to newspapers and magazines, but ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES the editors sent his manuscripts back. Martine continued to write and study at the same time. Martine slept five hours: only a man in very good health could work for nineteen hours a day.

The weeks passed. All Martin’s money was spent and publishers continued to send his manuscripts back. Martin ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES sold his coat, then his watch.

One morning the postman brought him a short thin envelope. There was no manuscript in that envelope, therefore, Martin thought they had taken the story. It was The Ring of the Bells. In the letter the editor of a San Francisco magazine said ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES that the story was good. They would pay the author five dollars for it. And he would receive the check when the story was published.

Martin thought that five dollars for five thousand words was very little. After a few weeks the story was published, but the check ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES didn’t` arrive. Martin had waited for about a month before he decided to go and get the five dollars from the editor.

He entered the office and said that he wanted to see Mr Форд – the editor. “I`m Martin Eden,” Martin began the conversation. He wanted to ask ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES for his five dollars, but it was his first editor and he didn’t` t want to make a bad impression on him. To his surprise Mr Форд quickly stood up with the words “You don` t say so!” and the next moment, with both hands ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES was shaking Martin`s хэнд.

FLIGHT

For many centuries people watched birds and dreamed that they could fly. We cannot fly like birds: we don`t have enough strength in our arms to move wings up and down. We also really need the power of an engine to drive ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES up forward. Many people died learning these lessons, before controlled flight became possible.

The first flying machine which could carry a human being was built in Spain in 875. Reports tell us that the inventor flew some distance, but the landing was hard: the man hurt his back badly and was never able ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES to fly again.

It was possible that the news of his flight reached England, carried there by men returning from war in the Middle East. Whether this is true or not, in 1010 a man called Oliver jumped off a church roof in Mulmesbury. This time we know the ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES distance of his flight - 125 steps.

In the last years of the 15th century, the Italian Leonardo da Vinci studied the flight of birds and мейд a number of drawings of flying machines. His early machines tried to copy the movement of birds` wings, which he didn’t ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES fully understand. But less than 10 years before his death in 1519, he drew a machine with wings that didn’t move. One of the machines was built and it did fly.

In 1536 in France, Denis Bolor returned to the idea of moving wings. He tried to fly using wings that ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES were moved up and down. The idea didn’t` t work and he fell to his death.

DAILY BREAD

Miss Martha was 40 years old but she was not married. She had her own shop where she sold bread, both fresh and stale which was cheaper.

There was a customer who called at her shop ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES two or three times a week. The man was not young but he was very pleasant. He wore cheap clothes but they always looked nice on him. He always bought stale bread and never fresh. Miss Martha decided that he was very poor.

She often thought of him and was always sorry ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES that she couldn’t invite him to have dinner with her. She wanted to talk to him, to know more about him. She liked the man and began wearing her best dress. She wanted to help the poor man but didn’t know how to do it.

Once ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES when her customer called on her to buy stale bread, Miss Martha had an idea and a good one, as she thought, to help him. She put some butter in the stale bread.

The next day two men came into the shop. One of them was her customer ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES and the other – a young man. The customer was very angry and couldn’t speak to her. So the young man told Miss Martha everything. “We work together in the same office”, he said. “We use stale bread to take away to pencil lines from our plans. We have worked ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES at a plan of a new district for six months. We finished it this morning and began taking away pencil lines from it with your bread. You see, as there was butter in the bread the plan is good for nothing, and we can’t show this ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES plan to anybody now.”

When the men left, Miss Martha went to her room, took off her best dress and put on her old one.

Christmas is probably the most festive time of the year, a season of gift­giving and celebration. We all know that Christmas is a religious holiday which marks the birth of Jesus Christ. But did you also know that some of the traditions are adapted from rituals ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES dating back to the time before Christianity?

Many pagan peoples regarded the winter solstice as a time of celebration. Anticipating the return of spring, people decorated their homes with evergreen plants, a symbol of eternal life. Mistletoe was especially popular, as it was believed to have ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES magic powers.

People hung sprigs of mistletoe in their homes and kissed beneath them as a gesture of friendship. At pagan festivals there was also a lot of singing and dancing going on – “dancing in a circle” is the original meaning of the word “carol”.

Still now we keep ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES these traditions up: we sing Christmas carols and dance around in circles, we kiss beneath the mistletoe and we decorate our homes with Christmas trees. By the way, did you know that it was a German who set the trend of decorating Christmas trees in England? It was Prince ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband. When he moved to England, Christmas trees had already been popular in continental Europe, but not in England.

In 1841, Prince Albert put up a Christmas tree at WindsorCastle. The event was reported in the press; and as the whole country was very keen on the royal family ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES, people enthusiastically took up the custom of decorating a tree at Christmas.

WHY PEOPLE GET TATTOOS

The desire to be part of a group, to be accepted by one's friends or peers, can have a great influence on what a person does. Sometimes, wearing a tattoo can be a sign that you belong to a certain ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES group. Gangs often use special clothes and tattoos to identify their particular group. For example, in one gang all the members may wear green army jackets and have large 'Xs' tattooed on their arms. It is not only gangs that have this type of special 'uniform'. Young people often belong ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES to a certain group of friends.

It is not always the influence of other people or the media that results in a person getting a tattoo ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES. Many people decide to wear tattoos in order to express their artistic nature, their beliefs, or their feelings - in other words, to show their individuality. A musician in a rock band may get a tattoo of a guitar on the arm.

THE SPIDER

Have you ever seen a small animal with four pairs of legs, a body that is divided into two parts?

This is a spider. Spiders live all over the world ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES. They do not live only in the coldest places. You may find them on land: on grass, bushes, trees, and on pools, rivers, seas. There are 15,000 different kinds of spiders. The smallest spider is less than 1 mm in body length, and the biggest one can have body length up to ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES 90 mm.

The spider spins its web to catch insects for food. It spins its web all its life. The process of spinning a web is very long. People say that the spider is very persistent in its work. If you destroy its web, a spider will begin to spin ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES a new web.

There is a story about a spider and a Scottish hero Robert Bruce (1274-1329). Robert Bruce was at the head of the Scottish army in the fight for the independence of Scotland against the English kings, Edward the First and Edward the Second. .

Once Robert Bruce was watching ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES a spider spinning the web. Robert Bruce destroyed the web, and the spider began to spin a new web. Several times Robert Bruce destroyed the web, and each time the spider began its work from the beginning.

Watching the persistent work of the spider, Bruce decided to be as persistent ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES as the spider and continue the fight for the independence of Scotland. And he defeated the English.

It was many years ago, but Scottish people still remember their great victory, and their great leader Robert Bruce.

A JIPSY CHILD

One day MrEarnshaw came back from a long journey. He had travelled sixty miles to Liverpool and back on business, and was very tired. “Look what I have brought you!” he said ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES. His children, Catherine and Hindley, were expecting presents and they rushed eagerly to see what it was.

They were very disappointed to see only a dirty, black-haired gipsy child. “I found him all alone in the busy street of Liverpool”, MrEarnshaw explained to them, “and I couldn’t ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES leave him to die. He can sleep in your room, children.” But Catherine and Hindley were very angry because they hadn` t received any presents, and refused to let the strange child share their room.

He was called Heathcliff, as a first and last name. No one ever discovered who his parents were.

Catherine and he became great friends, but Hindley hated him, and was often cruel to him. Old MrEarnshaw was strangely fond of that gipsy child, and frequently punished his son for behaving ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES badly to Heathcliff. Hindley began to be jealous to his father’s feelings for Heathcliff, and saw them both as enemies.

This situation couldn’t last. As MrEarnshaw grew old and ill, Heathcliff became even more his favourite, and Hindley often quarrelled with father. When Hindley was sent ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES away to study, everybody hoped that they would have peace in the house

SOUTH FOR THE WINTER

I never stay in one country for a long time. It gets boring. I like to move on, see new places, and meet different people. It's a good life, most of the time. When I need money, I get a job. I can do ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES most things - hotel and restaurant work, building work, picking fruit.

I like to go south in the winter - Cyprus, or perhaps North Africa. Life is easier in the sun, and Northern Europe can get very cold in the winter. Last year I was in Venice in October. I did some ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES work in a hotel for three weeks, then I began slowly to move south. I always go by train when I can. I like trains. You can walk about on a train, and you meet a lot of people.

I left Venice and went on to Trieste. There I ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES got a cheap ticket for the slow train to Sofia, in Bulgaria. It takes a day and a half, but the express was too expensive.

The train left Trieste at nine o'clock on a Thursday morning. There weren't many people on it at first, but at Zagreb more ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES people got on. Two girls went along the corridor, past my compartment. They looked through the door, but they didn't come in. The train left Zagreb and I looked out of the window for about ten minutes, then I went to sleep.

When I opened my ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES eyes again, the two girls were in the compartment.

'Hi!' they said.

'You're American,' I said. 'Or Canadian. Right?'

'American,' the taller girl said. She smiled. 'And you're twenty-three, your name is Tom Walsh, you've got blue eyes, and your mum lives in Burnham-on-Sea ROMEO AND JULIET - THE GREATEST LOVE STORYOF ALL TIMES, UK. Right?

'How did you know all that?' I asked.
