“What was the real reason behind the story Romeo & Juliet?”
'Twas my earnest intention to tell the tale of star-crossed lovers, wildly in love and tragically torn asunder by fate, circumstance, and the misunderstandings of others. When I penned Romeo and Juliet, I sought to remind all who would read it of the peril of a life unlived - when we let our passions and passions be denied, all of our days may be lost, and our dreams will never be fulfilled.
