For his TV show and book, Michael Wood wrote of MV that there are "too many unresolved questions left hanging in the air.........Shakespeare's eye was not quite on the ball." "How shall we find the concord of this discord?(MND). Comparison of MV and ROM is the best way as we are invited to do so from the beginning and throughout. In the first line of MV we find the word "sad" followed shortly by "sadness." In ROM, we find in Romeo's first appearance "sad hours" followed shortly by "What sadness." In the concluding speech of ROM we find "Go hence to have more talk of these sad things.
