Persuaded by Benvolio and Mercutio, Romeo attends the ball at the Capulet house in hopes of meeting Rosaline.However, Romeo instead meets and falls in love with Juliet.The text of the first quarto version was of poor quality, however, and later editions corrected the text to conform more closely with Shakespeare's original.Shakespeare's use of his poetic dramatic structure (especially effects such as switching between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension, his expansion of minor characters, and his use of sub-plots to embellish the story) has been praised as an early sign of his dramatic skill.Romeo and Juliet has been adapted numerous times for stage, film, musical, and opera venues.During the English Restoration, it was revived and heavily revised by William Davenant.
