Book Review: Romeo and Juliet-William Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the most famous love story in the world. The Montagues Romeo and the Capulets Juliet are two important families in Verona, who are engaged in a bitter feud. It tells of an intense all-consuming love and how that love is powerful enough to hope to exist beyond mortal life. The plot is similar to the myth of Pyramus and Thisbe, who fell in love with each other in spite of the feud raging between their families. The play was written in the mids, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. At that time the sonnet-craze was at a peak.

  1. As Shakespeare adapted the tale for the Elizabethan stage, he wove elements of Elizabethan drama and a certain level of bawdiness by including older characters that were not present in the original story. The play was well-received in its time. It remained popular through the centuries, and is still a favorite to this day. As much as Romeo and Juliet is a tragic love story, it is also a play about hate. The bloody feud between the Capulets and the Montagues is the backdrop for all of the action in the play and it is the catalyst for the tragic suicides of the two lovers. 🤺

  2. So, I would not pick it up as an entertaining book before I go to sleep. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The Capulets, throw a masquerade ball each year. But if they saw each other at a school.👪
