Romeo <3 Juliet
"Love Story"-Taylor Swift Shakespeare(original) vs. Taylor Swift(modern) Have you ever heard of the play Romeo and Juliet? Better yet... Have you read it? A story of two young people who "fall in love", and in the end take their lives. In reference to the modern song Love Story by Taylor swift... How accurate is the song? The Timeless love story of Romeo and Juliet has been used throughout time in poems, plays, music, and books. “Love Story” by Taylor Swift is one of many songs which are great allusions to Shakespeare’s original play of Romeo and Juliet. “Marry me Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone. I love you, and that’s all I really know.” In both the play and song Romeo asks Juliet to marry him receiving the answer yes. Though, in the play Juliet’s father doesn’t know about the marriage. It was a secret. It was love at first sight. “We were both young when I first saw you.” Romeo made his way through the crowd of people to say hello to Juliet. “I’m standing there on a balcony in summer air.” In both the play and song Juliet was out on the balcony. It was when Romeo was creeping on Juliet before he climbed up to her. The play Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare and the song “Love Story” by Taylor Swift have their comparisons. Though, the song is still a good allusion of the original play of Romeo and Juliet.

I agree with you how it was an admittedly accurate comparison but I think it was just modernized into the 21st Century. Fabulous blog.

Liv, in the song it says "you were throwing pebbles". That's not accurate to the story.
