Chikamatsu Vs. Shakespeare Chikamatsu Monzaemon’s tragedy, The Love Suicides at Soneszaki and Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet share many similarities.

The puppet play is written in an understandable language, where as Shakespearean plays are difficult to understand.

They bring in a lot of content which fits into to comedy criteria as well as enable the plot to develop fully. Firstly, the aspect of comedy ' servants and masters' is one where The Importance of Being Earnest fits perfectly as Lane and Merriman are both butlers of Jack and Algernon-the main characters of the play. They show the contrast between the lower and upper class in the Victorian Era which is a theme often found in comedic plays. Additionally, the relationship between Lane and Algernon could possibly represent the theme of youth and age-the generation gap. This is shown when Algernon asks Lane, " Is marriage so demoralising as that?"

In both plays Shakespeare explores the ideas of love at first sight, everlasting love, love being able to overcome anything and lust. Both Plays contain similar ideas and themes however since "Romeo And Juliet" is categorised as a tragedy and "The Merchant Of Venice" is described as a 'problem play' there are some key differences in their presentation. The context in which love develops also appears to have a major influence on the nature of this love. Shakespeare uses a variety of different techniques including oxymoron, sonnets and vivid imagery in his presentation of love which in turn helps to create an intimate relationship between the characters. Some may argue however that the theme of 'true love' is not presented between the main characters.
The themes presented, such as legality versus morality and male and female gender roles, also allow critics to create comparisons that provide an analysis of the play and the impact it has on an audience.

However, the reality is vastly different from this, even if they didn’t know better, as Torvald and Nora actually have quite a dysfunctional relationship. Toril Moi details this dysfunctional relationship between the two of them by writing “Helmer’s idealism and Nora’s unthinking echoing of it make them theatricalize both themselves and each other…” (2).
All characters are foolish to an extent, some more than others, but this foolishness in turn assists them in the process of becoming mature and learning the importance of characters and rationality. In some ways, Puck’s statement is strongly supported. Human characters are often foolish, being often overcome by excesses of emotions and immaturity in the flush of young love, as exemplified by Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander. The young lovers are living in the world of irrationality depicted in their poetic language and their declaration of love. Hermia and Lysander plan to escape to the wood so that they can get married in the house of Lysander’s aunt.
