About Romeo and Juliet

The classic tragic love story, the names Romeo and Juliet transcend Shakespeare and everyone understands the sentiment behind it, with the word Romeo even now being used as someone who fancies themselves as, well a bit of a Casanova.

This tragedy dates from 1594, and follows the ill fated union between a Montague and a Capulet from rival families that were not supposed to love each other, and unfortunate situations and misunderstandings lead to their mutual death at the end of the work.  Happy days.

Author / Creator: William Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet Quotations

This same should be the voice of Friar John.
Welcome from Mantua: what says Romeo?
Or, if his mind be writ, give me his letter.

Said by: Friar Laurence
Reference information: Act V Scene II

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be a Capulet

Said by: Juliet
Reference information: Act II, Scene II

What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

Said by: Juliet
Reference information: Act II, Scene II

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

Said by: Prince Escalus
Reference information: Act II, Scene II
