Life and works 
Although Shakespeare is probably the most famous writer in the world, relatively little is known about his life. Shakespeare’s birth is traditional celebrated on 23 April. He was born in Stratford-upon-Avon. His father was a glove maker and his mother came from a prosperous family. He was probably educated at the local grammar school. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. He later became a member of a theatre company, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men and then he became a member of the syndicate  which built the Globe Theatre. As a poet he wrote a collection of 154 sonnets and  two long poems. As a playwright he wrote 37 plays, which were  popular  with  both  educated  and common   William Shakespeare
audiences alike.

The plot
The Montagues and Capulets, the two most important families of Verona, are bitter enemies. Romeo, the son of Lord Montague, goes to a masked ball given by the Capulet family and he falls in love with their daughter Juliet.
