Romeo + Juliet

William Shakespeare's tragic tale of love and death goes like this: Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, of the houses of Montague and Capulet, are sworn enemies. The opening scene finds Samson, Tybalt, and gregory (of the Capulet family), quarreling with Balthasar, Abraham, and Benvlio (of the Montague family). This turns into a full-out brawl, which disturbs the citizens, and brings the prince in to yell at them. Later that night, Romeo and Juliet meet at a party in the Capulet mansion, and instantly fall in love. Later that night they meet in the Capulet's orchard, and plan to be married the next morning. Their union is made, but soon ruined, as Romeo slays Tybalt, and is banished from Verona. After he leaves, Juliet learns she is to marry Paris (as no one around them knew they were married). She is devestated, and her and the Friar form a plan. But, as in a classic tragedy, everything goes wrong, and they both end up killing themselves.

Quotes

Romeo: Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate, O anything, of nothing first create! O heavy lightness, serious vanity, Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms, Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health, Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
