What is Romeo & Juliet about?One of literature’s most famous love stories is a devastating tale of warring families who put pride above their children’s wellbeing. When Romeo meets Juliet at a party, the idealistic young man believes it is love at first sight. What does it matter that he is a Montague and she is a Capulet? Their parents’ grudges aren’t hereditary, and soon the pair are meeting in secret and planning to run away together. Tragedy isn’t far behind, however, and their blooming relationship has a heartwrenching end.
