SYN: affecting, breathtaking, climactic, comic, effective, emotional, expressive

Definition: Characterized by or expressive of the action or emotion associated with drama, the theatre, or in the form of expressive writing

Example:
O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be a Capulet.
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.
 
William Shakespeare
"Romeo and Juliet"
The Balcony Scene

To all who's familiar with the magnificent play, Romeo and Juliet: As one may know, throughout most, if not all of the scenes contains numerous of dramatic irony. This is, when the meaning of the situation is understood by the audience but not by the characters in the play. Emphasized to be dramatic is through its continuous usage of exclamation marks as to evoke Juliet's yearn for Romeo. In Shakespeare's prestigious way of choosing words, punctuation, and expressions to form his thoughts and feelings into his play, he successfully accomplishes his goal through providing his characters with appropriate dramatic characteristics. In this selected part of Shakespeare's play is siply about the love that Romeo and Juliet have for each other. However, with all things that may go well, things may also go wrong. Juliet at the very beginning asks why Romeo must be a Romeo, a Monatgue, and therefore...an enemy to her family. In the name of love, Juliet swears to refuse her name, her Capulet name if Romeo simply swears to her that he loves her, and that she would give herself to him if he refuses his Montague name.
