One of shakespeares most known plays "Romeo and Juliet", which is about two star crossed lovers lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. This play was a tragedy.
Part of the Prologue from Romeo and Juliet
"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife._
In 1996 a film was made based off the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.

I know of none;
Nor I know you by voice or any features:
I hate ingratitude more in a man,
Than lying, vainess, babbling,drunkenness
or any taint of vice whose strong corruption
inhabits our frail blood.
In my opinion this line in the play discusses that Shakespeare dislikes people who have a lack of appreciation, or thanklessness.
