Romeo & Juliet

in literature


Noah, thirty-one, is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories. . . until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again. Allie Nelson, twenty-nine, is now engaged to another man, but realizes that the original passion she felt for Noah has not dimmed with the passage of time. Still, the obstacles that once ended their previous relationship remain, and the gulf between their worlds is too vast to ignore. With her impending marriage only weeks away, Allie is forced to confront her hopes and dreams for the future, a future that only she can shape.


This entire series involves two "star-crossed lovers", Bella and Edward. However, they are not separated by family, but by species. Bella is a regular human while Edward is 100+ year old vampire. The norms of both their worlds, as well as outside evil forces, work to keep the two separated, but love always wins out. Author Stephanie Meyers has repeatedly stated that this series was greatly inspired by the original play- opening chapters of "New Moon" even show the characters viewing and critiquing the movie version!


The novel tells of Oliver Barrett IV, who comes from a family of wealthy and well-respected Harvard University graduates. At Radcliffe library, the Harvard student meets and falls in love with Jennifer Cavilleri, a working-class, quick-witted Radcliffe College student. Upon graduation from college, the two decide to marry against the wishes of Oliver's father, who thereupon severs ties with his son.
