title: The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
""The permanent popularity, now of mythic intensity, of Romeo and Juliet is more than justified,"" writes eminent scholar Harold Bloom, ""since the play is the largest and most persuasive celebration of romantic love in Western literature."" William Shakespeare (1564-1616) based his early romantic tragedy on Arthur Brooke's 1562 poem The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet. Shakespeare's resulting masterpiece, in turn, has inspired countless retellings around the world in mediums that include literature, dance, stage, and screen.
