Arthur Brooke

Considered to be William Shakespeare's chief source for his tragedy Romeo and Juliet; The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet by English poet Arthur Brooke, was published in 1562. Brooke is reported to have translated it from an Italian novella by Matteo Bandello. The play of Romeo and Juliet is of 4 days where as the one by Arthur Brooke takes place over many months, meaning that Shakespeare’s version is more intense than Arthur Brooke’s. The poem's ending also differs significantly from Shakespeare's play.
