"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife..."

The Italian city of Verona is plagued with violence in the streets. The Capulets and the Montagues, two powerful and wealthy houses, have let their rivalry erupt into all-out war. Yet when young Montague heir Romeo sneaks into a Capulet celebration to disrupt it from within, he meets the Capulets' daughter Juliet. The two begin their love affair, doomed from the start, but beautiful enough to transcend fate.

  • Needs updating

    By Pro Book Critic
    I hope you're reading this Willian Shakespeare! This book sounds like it was written in 1597! Needs some major revising!

    Remember the Romeo and Juliet movie with the little gnomes? I see where THAT came from. Took me probably half my life to figure it out but I'm almost 12 :)

    By rehanna1234
    this great Charles Shakespeare documentary was rather to intense to me.
  • No way that's really happening

    I am writing this solely because I cannot believe this many people are trashing this book and can't even spell their insults or logically have a valid complaint typed out. It's Shakespeare. For all of you who should clearly be failing in school (high school or other), it wasn't wrote yesterday.
