star-crossed lovers

"For never was a story of more woe,
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."

-Prince, Act V, Scene III
Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare

They shared such passionate love and yet, I've always thought their story was silly.

    I love Romeo and Juliet. Their story is very full on and unrealistic and I guess that's what I love about it, though it's still a very tragic story. I love the modern version with Leo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

    P.S. I sent your letter on Monday so I hope you receive it soonish. xx

    Ugh! I had to study this play at school, a few years ago, when I was in year 8 and 9. :P
    I never really found it romantic... I thought it was a bit silly and over-the-top too!

    I quite agree, this wasn't my favourite from Shakespeare, but it has an undeniable lure :)
