"The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet"
One of Shakespeare's most famous stories, "Romeo and Juliet" is the tale of two star-crossed lovers willing to do anything to be together, despite the many factions screaming at them to part. While the prologue gives away the ending, Shakespeare weaves a story that would give Jersey Shore a run for its money.
