and end with a marriage. Shakespearean tragedy:

on the lives of English Kings of the past. These plays focus on the social and political lives of the characters.

Shakespearean Tragedy.

and these two families bitterly hate each other.
This feud is what ultimately lead to the title
characters' suicides. The Globe Theater:

percentage of. In Shakespeare's time, only
men were allowed to perform on stage.
