Letter to the Marquis de Lafayette 25 July As the complexion of European politics seems now from letters I have received from the Marqs. My first wish is to see this plague to mankind banished from off the Earth, and the sons and Daughters of this world employed in more pleasing and innocent amusements, than in preparing implements and exercising them for the destruction of mankind: Abbot transcription given at Founders Online differs slightly:
Locked in a long-standing feud, one that is fought by the nobles of the two families as well as their servants, they have engaged in a series of bloody public battles.
In response, the ruler of Verona, Prince Escalus, is forced to intercede and declare that if any member of either family is caught fighting in the future they will be put to death. Thus the feud is ostensibly put on hold. The Capulets, it turns out, throw a masquerade ball each year.
Obviously they do not invite the Montagues.
Juliet, daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet, is 13 and will soon be of marriage age. It is the hope of her parents that she will fall in love with Paris, a wealthy kinsman of Escalus, at the ball. As it happens, three of the Capulets, sixteen year-old Romeo, his cousin Benvolio, and their friend Mercutio sneak into the ball.
Romeo has his sights on Rosaline although she has taken a vow of chastity and is unavailable. As soon as Romeo lays eyes on Juliet he falls in love with her, and Juliet falls in love with him at first sight.
They soon find out, to their dismay, that they are from rival families. As Juliet emerges from the window and tells the night sky about her love for Romeo, he emerges from hiding and they admit their love to each other. The same day, Benvolio and Mercutio are waiting for Romeo on the street.
It is here that Tybalt confronts them and demands the presence of Romeo for a duel to punish him for invading the ball. As Mercutio stalls Tybalt with an eloquent but vague speech, Romeo arrives on the scene.
After a period of verbal sparring between Romeo and Tybalt, Mercutio draws his sword to attack Tybalt. Romeo intervenes but Tybalt wounds Mercutio. Tybalt flees the scene only to return after to find that Mercutio has died.
Angry over the death of Mercutio, Romeo engages Tybalt and kills him. He decides to flee from the inevitable consequences from Escalus. Later, Escalus arrives, and upon learning the details of the murder, he banishes Romeo from Verona for life. Juliet is heartbroken after finding out about all of this and sends her nurse to give her ring to Romeo.
Later that night, Romeo returns to Juliet. He climbs into her room and their marriage is consummated.Lead-In Expressions. to introduce some of the parenthetical material.
