Romeo and Juliet
is a tragedy written early in the career of playwright William Shakespeare about two young “star-cross’d lovers” whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare’s most popular archetypal stories of young, teenage lovers.
Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. Its plot is based on an Italian tale, translated into verse as The Tragic History of Romeos and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562 and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1582. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both but, to expand the plot, developed supporting characters, particularly Mercutio and Paris. Believed written between 1591 and 1595, the play was first published in a quarto version in 1597. This text was of poor quality, and later editions corrected it, bringing it more in line with Shakespeare’s original.
The play, set in Verona, begins with a street brawl between Montague and Capulet supporters who are sworn enemies. The Prince of Verona intervenes and declares that further breach of the peace will be punishable by death. Later, Count Paris talks to Capulet about marrying his daughter, but Capulet is wary of the request because Juliet is only thirteen. Capulet asks Paris to wait another two years and invites him to attend a planned Capulet ball. Lady Capulet and Juliet’s nurse try to persuade Juliet to accept Paris’s courtship.
EMILY Blunt has a bizarre fear! The British actress says voicing a gnome in kids’ movie Gnomeo & Juliet helped her get over a rather odd phobia.
“I have always been scared or skeeved out by anything that resembles people like puppets or things like that,” she said.
“When I was a kid, dolls were the depths of Hell for me. I remember my friend had garden gnomes and I remember being scared of them when I was very young.
“I think I know someone who has a garden gnome of themselves which is quite strange. But, I wouldn’t mind having one now. That could be fun.
Wonder if William Shakespeare had that kind of problems with his actors…
