Such pure and heavenly love was depicted by William Shakespeare in the play "Romeo and Juliet". This literary creation became the classics of love stories. It became the ABC of love, which is quoted by sweethearts all over the world. It is a moving and pathetic story of the tragic love, which doesn't leave anyone indifferent. It is a play filled with inimitable soliloquies in which lovers' vows sound like music, where romantic, and passionate love seems to break down all the barriers, and lovers seem to be happy together in spite of all hindrances.
William Shakespeare wrote his will in 1611 , bequeathing his properties to his daughter Susanna (married in 1607 to Dr. John Hall). To his surviving daughter Judith, he left £300, and to his wife Anne left "my second best bed." William Shakespeare allegedly died on his birthday, April 23, 1616. This is probably more of a romantic myth than reality, but Shakespeare was interred at Holy Trinity in Stratford on April 25. In 1623, two working companions of Shakespeare from the Lord Chamberlain's Men, John Heminges and Henry Condell, printed the First Folio edition of his collected plays, of which half were previously unpublished.
‘Shakespeare wrote almost no original plots. He used an English poetic retelling of an old Italian tale: Arthur Brooke’s The Tragicall History of Romeus and Juliet .’ But even with the plot in mind, the play Shakepeare wrote is remarkable. Even though Romeo and Juliet was written over four hundred years ago, it remains, till today, one of the most popular and adored tragedy’s of English literature. ‘Eventually, their (Romeo’s and Juliet’s) misfortunes and their loves have healed the enmities of which they were the victims .’
