Waterstones Says

Unsurpassed in its influence on literary love stories, Shakespeare’s immortal play about two young Veronese lovers caught in the crossfire of a family feud and power games is an unfading meditation on desire, duty, loyalty and choice.

Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare's immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.
