"Romeo and Juliet" is a simple love story that is brought to life by the poetry and beauty of Shakespeare's writing style. This is the story of two lovers who are caught between their feuding families and are unable to publicly show their affections. In the end they both die for their feelings conveying the message that love is the strongest bond between two people. The sonnet-like stanzas seems to breath life into the characters and create an emotional connection between the reader and the story. Shakespeare captures the deep feelings of each character by simply using powerful dialouge that leaves the reader breathless. I would recommend this play to anyone at an advanced reading level, since the language can at times be hard to decipher. This story will grab the hearts of even the toughest person, and bring tears to the eyes of those people who adore a good love story.
