Homework Help: English (West Side Story)

Posted by Priscilla on Sunday, July 4, 2010 at 8:57pm.

I would like someone to check the following questions for me. Thanks in advance.
1. What issue was a problem for Tony in West Side Story?
A. Maria did not return his love
B. His job was not a good one
C. His parents did not approve of the friends he hung out with
D. He could not remove hiself completely from the gang.
E. None of the above.

I would say it's E. None of the above as
A: is not true. Maria did love him
B: is not true. I think he enjoyed his job. Besides, his job has nothing to do with his problem.
C. The story had never talked about his parents
D. I don't think he had tried to remove himself from the gang.

2. Is West Side Story a tragedy?
I would say yes, it's a tragedy as at the end, Tony got killed by Chino, and it is a story based on the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet.

Thanks for checking!
