The most famous lover story in the world.
23 August 2018
The most famous love story in the world. So much so that ‘Romeo’ is almost synonymous with the word ‘lover’. It tells of an intense all-consuming love and how that love is powerful enough to hope to exist beyond mortal life. Romeo and Juliet has some of the most intense and moving love poetry ever written by Shakespeare.
Shakespeare was fully aware that he was working with a plot that was clichéd even in his own time – today it is even laughable. But the brilliance of a story lies in the story-telling. Romeo and Juliet experience true love the moment they see each other. Love makes them forget everything else.
Overall, in my view the best book for lovers to lovers.
