Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare)

.

The story is taken from a poetical version by Arthur Brooke of Boisteau’s novel, called Rhomeo and Julietta. Boisteau borrowed the main incidents from a story by Luigi da Porto, of Vicenza (1535), entitled La Giulietta. In many respects it resembles the Ephesiʹaca (in ten books) of Epheʹsius Xenophon, whose novel recounts the loves of Habrocʹomas and Anthia.
