Romeo and Juliet (Shakespeare).
 
The story is taken from a poetical version by Arthur Brooke of Boisteau’s novel, called Rhomeo and Julietta. Boisteau borrowed the main incidents from a story by Luigi da Porto, of Vicenza (1535), entitled La Giulietta. In many respects it resembles the Ephesi’aca (in ten books) of Ephe’sius Xenophon, whose novel recounts the loves of Habroc’omas and Anthia.   1
