Prologue Romeo and Juliet

Two households, both alike in dignity. In Fair Verona, where we lay our scene means there are 2 families with similar respect for Verona. Both wealthy.
From Ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean means there is an old family feud, violence erupts which makes good citizens killing others making them evil.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life; from the two families, their two children fall in love, then commit suicide.
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents strife means that the taking of the lovers lives will end the families hatred towards each other (their feud)
The fearful passage of their death marked love and a continuance of their parents rage the tragedy of their fatal love and the continuing of their parents hate.
Which but their children’s end nought could remove is now two hours’ traffic of our stage the only way to end their parents feud Is by the death of their children, as you will seem for the next 2 hrs.
The which if you with patient ears attend means if you pay attention we will show you everything that we forgot to say.
