How does Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet relate to TuPac's T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.?
Romeo and Juliet are impulsive, irrational, and believe the world is black and white. Why? Because they have grown up in a feud that shows them only one path. As such, they are quick to think every obstacle can only mean tragedy, which is why the climactic scene is about death as a result of hot tempers and impulsive choices. Romeo and Tybalt's fight is the catalyst that causes the death of Mercutio, which in turn, causes the death of Tybalt, Juliet, Romeo, and Paris. This is relatable to today's teenagers because many of them are fans of TuPac. TuPac's philosophy of T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E. may not seem relevant and yet, since its message is that the hate adults create spreads to their children and perpetuates the cycle, it is absolutely similar to Shakespeare's tragic teenage love story.
Why do most Young Adult texts follow the theme of dystopian society?
Most Young Adult texts follow the themes of a dystopian society because it is the ever-evolving teenager who questions everything. Since they question everything, they are more likely to notice the flaws in a system that adults are too willing to accept. They have problems with authority, are still discovering their place in the world, and as such, these teenage protagonists have no issue fighting against injustice. That is why these texts are so relatable to teenagers and why most have--and always will have--young adult protagonists.
