CHORUS

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;

Romeo and Juliet / Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of playwright William Shakespeare about two young "star-cross'd lovers" whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet and Macbeth, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.

ACT V - Scene I

Belmont. The garden before PORTIA'S house Enter LORENZO and JESSICA. LORENZO

The moon shines bright. In such a night as this, When the sweet wind did gently kiss the trees, And they did make no noise--in such a night, Troilus methinks mounted the Troyan walls, And sigh'd his soul toward the Grecian tents, Where Cressid lay that night.

JESSICA

In such a night Did Thisby fearfully o'ertrip the dew, And saw the lion's shadow ere himself, And ran dismayed away.

LORENZO
