The drama of Shakespeare “Romeo and Juliet” I read only this year. The film, based on its motives, looked much earlier. And the fact that “there is no sadder story in the world than the tale of Romeo and Juliet”, I knew from the very childhood. And I am sure that many people, not yet opening the volume of Shakespeare, already knew about the heroes of this drama, because all lovers, happy or unhappy, are the same Romeo and Juliet, capable of faithful and passionate love, and all love, as you know, its tragic.
Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet are children from warring families, who are at war so that even the servants of the warring parties do not tolerate each other. Romeo is in love with a certain Rosaline. But, having penetrated friends with the ball into the house of enemies of his family, he meets Juliet. Rosalina is forgotten… Romeo understands “that is caught in the network.” Juliet also at first sight fell in love with the young Montague. Later in the garden of the Capulet Romeo and Juliet swear allegiance to each other. Soon they secretly get married. On the same day, Romeo kills Tybalt, the nephew of Lady Capulet, in a duel. He is being punished. “Romeo is banished,” repeats and repeats Juliet, unable to believe that she will never see her lover again. Meanwhile, Juliet is wooing the young Earl of Paris, and her parents give their consent to this marriage, The unfortunate girl rushes for help to her brother
Often happens so “late”, when because of the stupidity of people suffer their loved ones. Often, love is unhappy. And in the case of Romeo and Juliet, she is not just unhappy – she is tragic. If they were not fictional characters, then, I’m sure, would have met somewhere out there, in a better life. It’s a pity that during their lifetime they were so short-lived happy… No tearful love stories of contemporary authors will eclipse “the most sad story in the world,” a kind of symbol of tragic love.
