Correct response: What is Romeo and Juliet?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Romeo and Juliet is still one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.
Here’s the prologue to 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-cross’d lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love,
And the continuance of their parents’ rage,
Which, but their children’s end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
Romeo and Juliet was written at near the height of Shakespeare’s fame around the turn of the 17th century. By the end of his life, though, he had fallen out of favor with the English court, possibly due to his plays being more critical of England’s political situation, and he was said to suffer from very low ticket sales at his Globe Theatre.
