In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a violent world, in which two young people fall in love. It isn’t simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud.

In this death-filled setting, the movement from love to start with sight to the lovers’ final union in death seems almost inevitable.
