Imagery and symbolism are strong themes throughout Shakespeare's plays. The tragic elements prevalent in Romeo and Juliet, such as pride, death, pain and loss, create one of the most dynamic worlds in all of literature. A careful examination of the text and the imagery it evokes surrounding the lovers, the influence, and the impact of fate creates a rich and powerful context for teaching, learning and understanding Shakespeare.
