Read the play and think. You might enjoy it - there's a reason it's so famous. When I was at school they showed us the Zeffirelli version which was wonderful and we all cried....and then we went home and did our homework.

Hello Friends,

A paradox is a statement or situation with seemingly contradictory or incompatible components. On closer examination, however, the combination of these components is indeed appropriate. For example, see how Juliet describes Romeo in the following quote:
Juliet--"O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face!"
While Juliet knows that Romeo is not a serpent nor does he have a face full of flowers, her use of these descriptions show how paradoxically he is her lover and the murderer of her cousin at the same time.

Thanks And Regards.

I'll give you one pointer.
Examine Juliet's mother's own arranged marriage and her attitude to that of her daughter.

Not sure where I read this, but it is true:

Romeo And Juliet is not a love story. It’s a 3-day relationship between a 13-year-old and a 17-year-old that caused 6 deaths.
