The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love, And the continuance of their parents’ rage, Which, but their children’s end, nought could remove, Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. Enter SAMPSON and GREGORY, of the house of CAPULET; armed. SAMPSON Gregory, I strike quickly, being moved. GREGORY But thou art not quickly moved to strike. SAMPSON A dog of the house of Montague moves me.

Romeo and Juliet is a good book on a few different levels. The writing in the book is great. The plot of the story is exciting with unexpected twists and turns. This entire play was a poem. The way Shakespear uses words, to me, makes him an artist. The plot of this play is an interesting one.

Romeo And Juliet is considered the first of Shakespeare’s tragedies. In a tragedy the hero is very often a man but here we also have a heroine, Juliet. This always happens when the main subject of the tragedy is love. The name of the protagonist almost always appears in the titles, . Othello, Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra. In the whole play the hostile fate works through many unfortunate events:Romeo accidentally meets Juliet and kills Tybalt; Friar Laurence’s message accidentally does not reach him; it’s fate that makes Juliet awake shortly after Romeo’s suicide. Romeo and Juliet are not like the heroes of the Golden Tragedies. They do not have tragic flaws that lead to their downfall. There is no villain and there are no supernatural events that determine their tragedy.

One of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays, Romeo and Juliet is the tale of young love gone horribly wrong, as a combination of the lovers' warring families, outside events and their own rashness conspire to wreak tragedy on Juliet and her Romeo.

The origins of Romeo and Juliet are convoluted, but many people trace it back to an old Italian tale based on the lives of two lovers who tragically died for each other in Verona, Italy in 1303. Some say the lovers, although not from the Capulet and Montague families, were real people. While this may as well be true, there is no clear record of such a tragedy occurring in Verona in 1303.

At that time the sonnet-craze was at a peak. Both poets and amateurs had been swept off their feet by the sheer power of Petrarch’s love sonnets, and tried to follow in his footsteps. Shakespeare masterfully parodies this craze, not only in this play, but in many of his works
