Montagues and Capulets are two veronese families, bitter enemies. The prince of the city threatens death to anyone who disturbs the peace on the city. Romeo, Montague's falls for Juliet, Capulet's daughter at Capulet's mask feast . Juliet hears of his love under her window and agrees to a secret marriage by Friar Laurence.
William Shakespeare was born in 1564, lived in Stratford, and died in 1616. He married Anne Hathaway and had three children. He centred his works on the Globe Theatre from 1599. This is a tragedy with strong comic overtones.
