Rated 5 out of 5 by from RSC Edition is the Best I'll assume most know the Shakespearean tragedy of Romeo & Juliet ~ My recommendation is for the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) editions of the plays. I bought my first RSC edition in Stratford England having just seen Merchant of Venice. I truly appreciated the effort put forth in accurately presenting the play. Great additional information to enhance the reading and understanding of the play as well as the times when written. All put together with some vintage photos in a great binding. Highly recommended edition- RSC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WASAIII??? This ain' t bad Coles Editorial Board has found written something unique to William Shakespeares "Romeo and Juliet". Perhaps as a modern society our understanding of Shakeperare seems rare. This book has turned Shakespeares classic story into an understandable drama. Good.

About the Author

William Shakespeare, 1564 - 1616 Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School. At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the 27-year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later. He probably developed an interest in theatre by watching plays performed by traveling players in Stratford while still in his youth. Some time before 1592, he left his family to take up residence in London, where he began acting and writing plays and poetry. By 1594 Shakespeare had become a member and part owner of an acting company called The Lord Chamberlain's Men, where he soon became the company's principal playwright. His plays enjoyed great popularity and high critical acclaim in the newly built Globe Theatre. It was through his popularity that the troupe gained the attention of the new king, James I, who appointed them the King's Players in 1603. Before retiring to Stratford in 1613, after the Globe burned down, he wrote more than three dozen plays (that we are sure of) and more than 150 sonnets. He was celebrated by Ben Jonson, one of the leading playwrights of the day, as a writer who would be "not for an age, but for all time," a prediction that has proved to be true. Today, Shakespeare
