William Shakespeare is the greatest English-language playwright of all time. He was equally successful with writing comedy and tragedy. "Romeo and Juliet" is one of his most famous tragedies. This drama takes place in XVI century Italy in Verona, where two families hating each other live - the Montagues and the Capulets.
The plot of this work of art concerns Romeo and Juliet's unhappy love. They come from two opposite families. Emotions which join them are so strong, that in spite of the fact that members of their families hate one another, the youngsters do fall in love. Romeo and Juliet do not listen to their parents and their objections. They are willing to do everything to save their love and to be together.What I like the most about this book is that it brings up the eternal issue of love, and the problem which we can associate with any age. The dialogues between the characters are excellent. The whole script is exciting. The plot is very believable, though sometimes ridiculous. It is a classic masterpiece of its genre. I can thorougly recommend this book because it is well worth reading. It will change the way you think about how strong true love can be and how parents do not understand their children's feelings.
