What does the prologue (Luke 1:1-4) tell us about this author? How does it serve as an aid in understanding the Gospel of Luke?
The prologue tells us how Romeo and Juliet are both going to end up dying and only their death will resolve the two families' everlasting feud
It gives us insight into the character of Nick Carraway. Knowing the background of the narrator creates a sense of trust and this then makes us believe more of what he will tell us later on in the novel. It also gives reasons for some of his judgments and actions he makes/does later on in the story. Without a prologue the story would jump too quickly and the prologue is instrumental in providing us with reasons, easing us into the story of the 'Great Gatsby'.
"The past is prologue" - the backstory prepares us for and increases appreciation of the present.
greed is the root of all evil
the value of people and the way they change over time
When you call the play a tragedy in the title, it doesn't take much guessing to guess the ending anyway. The Prologue tells us more backstory than ending.
yes the preamble
It has a prologue followed by 282 amendments.
It is telling you what is going to happen in the story.
Mostly the prologue.
Shakespeare tells us what happens in the prologue because the story of Romeo and Juliet is nothing new. The story of Romeo and Juliet is cliche and has been used many times but in different settings. People who went to the theater at the time went to see it for the performance, not the story. People who read Romeo and Juliet now read it for the language, not the story.
The codification and the making of a prologue.
The unexpected turn of events that occurred in postwar Vietnam involving the US was the refugees. A refugee is someone who leaves their country because of a war.
There is no reason why it shouldn't. Maybe the prologue contains the essence of the novel, some small morsel of insight that might whet the literary appetite of a new reader. Then the novel can precede, maybe even from some point chronologically earlier than the time setting of the prologue. As the storyline develops it gradually gets closer to the moments that were epitomised in the prologue. Maybe the prologue could be repeated at that point, and the reader will then more fully grasp the significance of the thoughts expressed in the prologue. After all, a prologue is just a preliminary narrative, speech or poem. Doubtless, with some novels, it would be ideal to introduce it again, later, in context, where the poignancy of the prologue will be more fully understood and appreciated. One writing tutor says, of a prologue, that it can be "... a scene taken directly from the book - a few paragraphs inserted only to make us keep reading." The decision whether 'to prologue, or not to prologue' is the author's to make, who will also decide the form of the prologue if one is used. Those wishing to develop their writing skills may wish to make a wide study of novels with prologues, then decide for themselves what advantages there may be in having a prologue. With a broader spectrum of knowledge the author can then make an informed choice regarding prefacing their own novel(s) with a suitable prologue, or not!

to tell us what major it is
I am sure that your question is not about the poemRomeus and Juliet, but about the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. The prologue to the play (which is a poem in the form called a sonnet) basically tells us the outline of the plot and the setting: Verona, Italy.
