What Is the Story of Romeo and Juliet?
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the most well known of all The Bard’s plays. Romeo meets Juliet at a costume party. It is love at first sight as he falls head-over-heels for the lovely young girl, who feels the same way about him. After a romantic conversation over a balcony, the two decide that they must get married at once. This would have been a picture-perfect union of kindred souls, had it not been for fact that their families are sworn enemies. Tragic events are put in motion when Romeo is drawn into a fight with Juliet’s cousin Tybalt, forever altering the lives of the young couple and those who love them.
