The researcher''s present work, Romeo and Juliet in the light of Eastern folk-tales is a comparative study of Shekespear''s play---Romeo and Juliet and the eastern folk-tales Hir Ranhja, Sassi Punnu and Sohni Mahinwal. The research interprets that there is relationship between these stories in their style and structure. In this thesis dialectical relations among character, language and action are studied. The researcher has gone to a great deal of pains in collecting and putting together the material for his work.

It is hoped that this research will be a gate way of those who want to work on eastern and western folk-tales.
