Taken in adaptation from the Shakespearean Montagues and Capulets, offers a new twist on the old tale, but still retains the tragic consequence. Scholars are divided on the role of fate in the play. Scholars have long noted Shakespeare's widespread use of light and dark imagery throughout the play. Still, other scholars see the play as a series of unlucky chances—many to such a degree that they do not see it as a tragedy at all, but an emotional melodrama. This contrast of light and dark can be expanded as symbols —contrasting in a metaphoric way. Sometimes these intertwining metaphors create dramatic irony of an emotional melodrama. And - in the Catholic Religion suicides were often thought to be condemned to hell, whereas people who die to be with their loves under the "Religion of Love" are joined with their loves in paradise.


Didactic Friary

friar's balsam
dressing wounds,
friction match lit, flint
o' jesus christ light the
joskin on his ass, shake
the runes take a hint,

monastery
dung beetle
crawling in the
sparrow grass,
o jesus christ the
corruption of asparagus
superscribed in the scriptorium
pharmacy, let the prescription take
hold hither side of sixty, the thirty nine
articles of religion, monks chant the thirty
second note, worship the stem and three penants,
demisemiquaver,

inclinometer, a
friar's instrument,
measures taken, dipping
compass, the inclination,
kiss the rod, the mare's nest
hoax, friar's dispense mariner's
insurance insuring of a corrupt ship,
cargo of dilettantes, the mummer led
astray from the plymouth brethren, poetic
justice, genuflect, Amen.
