Romeo and Juliet is the tragic story of 'star-crossed lovers' from feuding families. Complete with a masquerade ball, a duel, a secret marriage, a sleeping potion, and pushy parents, the play packs a lot of action and emotion into five days of passion, romance, duplicity, and tragedy.
A perfect introduction to non-Shakespeare crazed students, or for those who struggle with the ancient prose, this unique version of Hamlet places the original playside-by-side with an easily understood modern English translation. A synopsis, list of characters, character map and cycle of death lend additional clarity. Discussion questions are included. 221 pages, softcover.
