In both William Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet and the short story “The Interlopers” by Saki, members of feuding families reconcile too late after tragedy strikes. 

Your task:  After reading the prologue to Romeo and Juliet and “The Interlopers”, construct an essay in which you support the controlling idea of regret and reconciliation.

Audience: those who hold grudges even though the original conflict may have been long forgotten

Purpose: to persuade those who may be holding grudges to make an attempt at reconciliation before tragedy strickes; use the fate of characters from the above as support for your argument

Style: Be sure to analyze the authors’ use of literary techniques that help to express the idea of regret and reconciliation
