Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy has inspired musicals, ballets, operas, and, of course, countless movies, including Italian director Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 classic and Australian director Baz Luhrmann’s stylish remake starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. The Bard’s play is so fundamental to our culture-and to the popular trope of star-crossed lovers-that we all feel like we know the story of Romeo and Juliet’s doomed love affair.


And yet, have you ever read the original? And if yes, perchance was it a long, long time ago? The beautiful lyricism of Shakespeare’s storytelling makes poring over his words such a complex treat:

What light in yonder window breaks?

Parting is such sweet sorrow.

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

These are just a few of the play’s immortal lines. And it’s this masterful storytelling that makes the doomed lovers’ untimely deaths that much more poignant.

Amazing

One of the classics I love, this makes fun of romance which is something that needed to be done… regardless of if this was made a long time ago…..

Art’ more over than thou

You gotta be real nimble with the pages of art thou to conclude with thy book.

5 stars for thy romance.
3 stars for everything else

Disappointed owl😢 ,

Nice introduction to Shakespeare

Straightforward, with an interesting plot. Easier to read than other works by Shakespeare, so it makes sense that it is often taught in ninth grade.
