Romeo and Juliet vs. West Side Story
Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story, two timeless dramas
that will live forever. Although both of these stories have
many similarities, there are also many differences. These
differences include the differences in sililoquy, the fact that
Maria doesn't die, the fact that we never see Tony or Maria's
parents, as well as the issues of marriage, the importance of
gangs and families to each story. To understand these
differences, I have read and/or watched both Romeo and
Juliet, and the similar tragedy, West Side Story.
Above, I named a few of the many differences between
