Romeo and Juliet

I don't think I could possibly ever summarise William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, so I shall quote the opening lines of the play that tells exactly what will happen in this classic play. Not that a detailed review is really needed because everyone knows about Romeo and Juliet. So here's the amazing words by the great English Bard - truly brilliant...

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life,
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents̓ strife.
The fearful passage of their death-marked love
And the continuance of their parents̓ rage,
Which but their children̓s end, naught could remove,
Is now the two-hours̓traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

I must say that I enjoyed the film adaptation of the classic tale of two lovers that are doomed before they meet by Baz Luhrmann. Although Luhrmann makes some changes like who bites whose thumb at who at the beginning of the play, but it's all good, because it is a wonderful homeage to the tale that is so tragically romantic!!!

Author Info for My New Favourite Book Series - Bewitching Mystery Series

Madelyn Alt is the author of the Bewitching Mystery Series. Chronicling life for an offbeat group of ghosthunters in anything-but-normal Stony Mill, Indiana. These exciting stories are giving readers spills, chills, and thrills—of both the supernatural and all-too-natural kind.

A born aficionado of all things paranormal, Madelyn currently spends her days toiling away in the mundane world of business and her nights writing tales of the mysterious. She loves chocolate, Siamese cats, a shivering-good ghost story, the magic in the world around us, and sometimes, more chocolate.

Madelyn writes from her home, an 1870s-era Victorian in Northeast Indiana, and is undoubtedly hard at work on the next Bewitching mystery.
