A story of ill-fated lovers whose untimely deaths unite two feuding families, Romeo and Juliet has become the archetype of young love destined to meet a tragic end.

The hatred between the House of the Capulets and the House of the Montagues is well known in Verona. Yet love blossoms between Romeo and Juliet. A brawl between the kinsmen of the Houses leads to Romeo''s exile, and from then on it is a series of misjudgments and chance - of time, place, and event that inexorably play out the lovers'' doom.

One of the most popular of Shakespeare''s plays, and one of his most performed, Romeo and Juliet is an enduring love story of emblematic proportions. Campfire''s adaptation seeks to bring this iconic work of Shakespeare to young readers in a language that is simple yet Shakespearean, and art that movingly recreates a tragic romance of 16th-century feudal Italy.

About the Author

William Shakespeare was born on April 26, 1564 in Warwickshire, England.
The theme of Shakespeare''s work tended to be human feelings such as fear, ambition, and jealousy. His most well known works such as Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth thrived on the weaknesses of human emotions. In Romeo and Juliet he would play on the eternally popular theme of the doomed lovers whose parents object to their union.
Although he died in 1616, Shakespeare''s enduring popularity shows no sign of weakening. His work is constantly performed with a plethora of yearly stage plays, and the numerous television adaptations and popular Hollywood films released over the years.

Editorial Reviews

 "I found this to be a very well-written adaptation, true to the original. . . . Well done and attractive . . . This is a perfect introduction to the play." - Nicola Manning, Back to Books


"I highly recommend Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature."

- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
