Romeo and Juliet

by William Shakespeare

Lorenz Educational Publishers | July 1, 2004 | Trade Paperback

Romeo and Juliet is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Taking the mystery out of Shakespeare - not the magic: This translation of ROMEO AND JULIET into contemporary English - alongside the original text - has modernized the difficult passages and expressions which used to make Shakespeare''s language a challenge. This unique translation is not a literal-minded prose version. On the contrary, it retains the feel and the rhythm of the original, letting the reader experience the play in the same enjoyable way an Elizabethan audience did. The text is immediately clear to today''s readers, making those tedious footnotes unnecessary. A glossary of place names and mythological references is included.

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.
