Homework Help: romeo and juliet

Posted by Savannah on Wednesday, April 4, 2007 at 9:50pm.

Hi. I have a question. Wasn't the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare based off of a poem by Arthur Brooke? This is what I was taught in school and have read on several websites, but someone else told me that what I know is completely wrong, but instead Shakespeare went to Verona and based his play on a real couple by the names of Romeo and Juliet and this person says you can go to Verona and see Juliet's balcony. I was researching this, but most people seemed to say the balcony is just a tourist attraction. Am I the crazy one or have my teachers taught me right?

Never bad mouth a tourist attraction, it gets you in trouble with the chamber of commerce. Here in Texas, we have many caves where famous bandits must have camped.

Thanks.

I didn't bad mouth a tourist attraction.
