For Romeo and Juliet, it's love at first sight. But there's a problem: Romeo belongs to the Montague family, while Juliet is a Capulet. In Verona, these noble families are constantly feuding. In fact, they hate each other so much that the prince of Verona has stepped in and declared death to anyone who disturbs the peace again. Forced to hide their love, the two secretly wed and plan to leave together. A string of miscommunication, however, may lead to a tragic end. This is an unabridged version of William Shakespeare's famous romantic tragedy, first published in England in 1599.
