Romeo and Juliet is an excellent introduction to Shakespeare. It shows how tragedy can result from the intense attraction of young love. It gives a demonstration of the risks of gang violence. It provides an example of the great weakness of suicide and provides a warning of the dangers of holding grudges. The story illustrates the unpredictable outcomes that can come from fighting and it provides an example of the unintended consequences of revenge.

Notice the choreography of the fight between Romeo and Tybalt. Tybalt is getting the best of Romeo but when Tybalt goes in for the kill, he leaves himself open for a moment. Romeo recovers just enough to take advantage of that opening and Tybalt is slain. Is this a realistic way in which a fight can happen? What can we learn from this about the risks of fighting?
