In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a world of violence and generational conflict in which two young people fall in love with, ultimately, tragic consequences.
It has become the quintessential story of young love. The language Shakespeare gives his young lovers is exquisite, allowing them to say to each other just what we would all say to a lover if we only knew how.
In the violent, death-filled world in which the play is set, the movement of the story from love at first sight to the union of the lovers in death seems almost inevitable.
