I don't know how i should start my essay on romeo and juliet any ideas!?

The question is ... "Romeo and Juliet are star-cross'd lovers'; they are not in control of their own destinies".

I have only done one previous essay and i got 35 out of 50 But i don't know how i should start this one!

Don't be discouraged! :] Romeo and Juliet - *sigh... I remember those (rather boring) days! :)

Romeo and Juliet are star-cross'd lovers'; they are not in control of their own destinies

I would say that the best way to go about this essay is to look specifically for facts and evidence in the story itself that will support that it was fate that caused their death. One example would be the plague - in the play, the plague forces the priest (was he called the priest?) to detour around the city to inform Romeo about the plan to elope him with Juliet. However, Romeo was hasty and unfortunately the priest could not deliver the message in time. That might be one example. You could find plenty more :]

Once you do this, try to write a killer introduction for your essay, with the thesis saying that Romeo and Juliet were indeed star-crossed lovers.

Start by writing one of the body paragraphs. All you need is a single sentence, because it will be the topic sentence for the para. So, just come up with one observation about how they're outcomes seemed predestined.

Then, finish the paragraph by giving an example.

Put that paragraph aside and write another topic sentence. Writing a topic sentence is like planting a seed for the paragraph. It will grow out of the topic sentence.

What events in the story seemed to show that circumstances were working to ensure the terrible outcome?
