William Shakespeare was the greatest English-language playwright of all time. He was equally successful writing comedy and tragedy. „Romeo and Juliet” is one of his most famous tragedies. The action of this drama takes place in XVI century Italy in Verona, where two families who hate themselves live - the Montagues and the Capulets.
The plot of this work of art focuses on the unhappy love between Romeo and Juliet, who come from two opposite famies. Emotions which join them are so strong, that in spite of the fact that members of their families hate one another, the youngsters are fall in love. Romeo and Juliet do not listen to their parents and their objections. They are able to do everything to save their love and to be together.
What I like the most about the book is that, it brings up the timeless issue of love, and the problem which we can put in every age. The dialogues between the characters are excellent. The whole script is exciting. The plot is very believable and sometimes ridiculous. It is a classical masterpiece of its kind. 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 feelings. It was ever thus. Read the book and find out!
