Is Romeo and Juliet Really a Love Story?

Written by : Erin Epperson

                    Is Romeo and Juliet really a love story?  In my opinion it is not.  I don’t think it is a love story because is full of lust.  Lust Is when you like someone basically for their looks and not their personality.  Romeo first likes Juliet when he sees her at a party held by the Caplets.  They think it is love at first sight when they meet, but in my opinion it is not.  They like each other for their appearance and think that they fall deeply in “love” over the span of one week.  In this week they meet each other, get married and kill themselves because of each other.  Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy because of the violence and death and is definitely not a love story.
