One reason for the overwhelming popularity of the play throughout the ages is that it focuses on two people who defied society in order to follow their own hearts. Shakespeare scholar Walter Cohen cites the popularity of Othello during times of great rebellion and upheaval; the play was most popular during the European wars of the mid-19th century, the fall of Czarist Russia, and also during World War II in America. These productions tended to emphasize the nobility and love of Othello and Desdemona, and made their fall seem more tragic and ill-deserved.
Such pure and heavenly love was depicted by William Shakespeare in the play "Romeo and Juliet". This literary creation became the classics of love stories. It became the ABC of love, which is quoted by sweethearts all over the world. It is a moving and pathetic story of the tragic love, which doesn't leave anyone indifferent. It is a play filled with inimitable soliloquies in which lovers' vows sound like music, where romantic, and passionate love seems to break down all the barriers, and lovers seem to be happy together in spite of all hindrances.
