Romeo & Juliet

Dicksee.RomeoAh, the famous play almost everyone knows about, even the boys; Romeo and Juliet. Not only the tale of love, but also of a family feud.

Romeo, son of Lord Montague, has led a fairly good life (apart from spitting at his rivals, the Capulets). His story opens with his cry of woe as his only love (or so he thought) does not wish to have any man. Benvolio, his friend, suggests they sneak into the Capulet’s party and Romeo can visit Rosaline (his love) who happens to be invited.

As they arrive at the party, their devious little plot is exposed by Tybalt, nephew to Lady Capulet. Tybalt is ready to slit both men’s throats and be done with it, but Lord Capulet insists he should let them be for now.

This is where lady-love meets hero: Romeo looks for Rosaline and winds up singing Juliet’s praises instead. Juliet and Romeo both find out later that evening that their love is from the other family, whom they are raised to hate.

The romance will take an odd turn and will change the lives of both families.

I enjoyed reading the whole tale so I could judge it on my own terms. It was not a bad story and entertained my hours.  Next up is The Tempest
