The Prologue (The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet)


Two households, both alike in dignity,

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,

A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;

Whose misadventured piteous overthrows

Doth with their death bury their parentsí strife.

The fearful passage of their death-marked love,

And the continuance of their parentsí rage,

Which, but their childrenís end, naught could remove,

Is now the two hoursí traffic of our stage;

The which if you with patient ears attend,

What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
