If we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
For example, the tragedy romeo and juliet has been set everywhere from Elizabethan England to Renaissance Italy to modern-day Verona to comteporary Sarajevo to Verona Beach, California. the last setting, in the film version directed by Baz Luhrmann(1997), was complete with rival teenage gangs driving hotrods, wearing punk outfits, and armed with switchblades and guns. (Hamiliton 2).
i choose this because it holds true no matter where you go or what you read. people are always using the story line of romeo and juliet to make new stories just as romantic to tell the tale of lovers that are forbidden to be together. it makes new writers just want to think of something new to break from this cliche of story plot.
