Love Story is based on the story of William Shakespeare’s 16th-century tragedy Romeo and Juliet, and was inspired by a love interest that was unpopular among Swift’s family and friends. Contrary to Shakespeare’s tragic climax, the two protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, end up in a marriage proposal in the song’s tale. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is also mentioned in the lyrics (1850). Swift and Nathan Chapman co-wrote and produced the country pop tune, which contains soprano vocals and a slow-building melody of banjo, violin, mandolin, and guitar.
