No story tells of 'blindness' of overwhelming affection as Romeo and Juliet. Love like an infectious disease plagues the already-at- feud families. Whie the feud between Capulets and Montagues seem contained with only occassional overflows, the 'invasion' of love sets a new flat-form on which hatred will flourish. Love and hate indeed spring from the same source, the heart that also harbours the secret love of the young lovers.
Amidst this boundless affection between the young 'anemies' springs fate consistently imposing itself beyond the realms of the 'fleshly' married couple's expectations. A new turn is born not by their means, consuming their newly endorsed love with the help of a non-prodent priest. All is lost for them as the over-riding fate seals their circumstancial death.
