There is little dissimilarity between the plays Double Suicide and Romeo and Juliet. It is obvious that each play extends its own culture and originates from within a distinctly different culture, but that is realistically necessary for every message to be personalized. Also, the circumstances of how the two lovers meet are also very similar; there is no prostitution in Romeo and Juliet, but the feuding between the Capulets and the Montagues does ensure that there is no thorough way in which Romeo could ever rightfully claim Juliet.
