The appeal of the young hero and heroine - whose families the Montagues and Capulet, respectively, are implacable enemies -is such that they have become, to the popular imagination, the representative type of star-crossed lovers. They are sincere, kind, brave, loyal, virtuous, and desperately in love, and their tragedy is greater because of their innocence. The feud between the lovers' families represents the fate which Romeo and Juliet are powerless to overcome. The lines capture in poetry the youthful and simple passion, which characterizes the play. Shakespeare set the scene in Verona. Italy during July. Juliet, a Capulets, and Romeo, a Montague, fall in love when Romeo visits her at her private balcony in her family's home. Because the two noble families are enemies, the couple is married secretly by Friar Laurence. When Tybalt, a Capulet, kills Romeo's friend Mereutio in a quarrel, Romeo kills Tybalt and is banished to Mantua. Juliet's father insists on her marrying Count Paris, and Juliet goes to consult the friar. He gives her a potion that makes a person appear dead. He proposes that she take it and that Romeo rescue her. She complies, unaware of the friar's scheme, Romeo returns to Verona on hearing of Juliet's apparent death. He encounters Paris, kills him, and finds Juliet in the burial vault. He gives her a last kiss and kills himself with poison. Juliet awakens, sees the dead Romeo, and kills herself. The families learn what has happened and end their feud.
