    The theme of fate and fortune in Romeo and Juliet is shown by the line ‘A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life’ - William Shakespeare, Romeo And Juliet Time Period. The word, ‘star-cross’d’ portray that the two lovers, Romeo and Juliet, will meet because the stars are aligned for them.   At the time, the words seemed archaic and the plot melodramatic making it more of a chore than an encounter with great literature. But, youthful obtuseness aside, Romeo and Juliet is the ideal text to introduce Shakespeare. While it may not have the pathos of Hamlet it does contain the wordplay and witticisms for which Shakespeare is well known.
