    I was just thinking about this earlier; is it possible that stories are labelled and sterotyped by what audience encounters them the most? For all that we know, we could have been misinterpreting everything, doomed to deviate from the authors real motives to his work. Let's take Romeo and Juliet for example. What if romance was not the genre this play is suppose to be in? What if Shakespeare intended the play to really be focused on two feuding families and the devastating affects that can happen to the "hipsters" to the family, aka the ones who don't jump in the bandwagon full of misery. What if Shakespeares real goal was to tell us that horrible consequences happen if we fall out of place. Who knows, maybe the old time audience did pick up on this. However, don't you think that maybe after shoving this play down preteens' throats, they will throw up some kind of analysis about how love will make people do crazy things. When you are young, it's all about love. Love love love. Our little preteen minds aren't matured enough to see more to this play, and then most of us end up not reading it for the rest of our lives. So maybe we go through life with this notion of what we believe the play is about. But honestly, who can really trust their preteeny judgement? My argument for the beginning of this was maybe the audiences only see what they want to see in the work of an author, but now all I really want to say is kids should not be reading literature they're not ready for! Unless the just don't give a shit, then it's all good.
