I dunno- I was pretty critical of Romeo and Juliet when I read the play in high school. Granted, she was what, 13 or so? a good age for stupid romanticism. I felt that R and J were both idiots, and R, being older, should have known better.
I had an interesting teacher,though,who didn't expect me to find the play romantic, and as long as I could support my reasoning allowed me my opinion. What was good about the class is that we compared it to West Side Story.
