You know Bella and Edward. You know Romeo and Juliet. Now meet Pyramus and Thisbe, two crazy kids who are totally in love but kept apart by the cold, cruel world. It's a classic story that never gets old. No matter your age, everyone can get into all the swooning and sighing. It's just human nature.
Of course, not all love stories have a happy ending. Sure, some of us like it better when the young lovers live happily ever after, but if the number of tragic love stories out there is any indication, we also love to cry when it all falls apart.
So break out your tissues, Shmoopers. The tale of Pyramus and Thisbe will make you happy to be sad.
