What Is the Story of Romeo & Juliet?
Romeo & Juliet is an enduring, tragic romance written by William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. Romeo and Juliet meet and find true love, despite the hatred between their two noble families. The bitter war between the Montagues and the Capulets—one act of violence begetting another—forces the couple to hide their relationship and, ultimately, take their own lives.
