O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou the absolute worst? Let us count the ways. In this SnarkNotes episode, Keli and Alice take the time to discuss heroes (and couples) that the general public romanticizes even though they really shouldn’t. They argue that the romantic heroes of classic literature are seriously lacking. Romeo is a player. Healthcliff is a sociopath. Gatsby isn’t exactly “great”. All in all, a stand up group of guys.
Spoiler warning. This episode touches on major plot points in Romeo & Juliet, Wuthering Heights, and the Great Gatsby. (You’ll never guess how Romeo & Juliet ends. Minds will be blown.)
