From Our Editors

What happens when two young people from two feuding families meet and fall in love? It sets the tone for a play that encompasses love, drama, comedy and tragedy. From the Oxford Shakespeare series comes one of William Shakespeare`s greatest stories, Romeo and Juliet. Told in verse, it follows the lives of two love-struck teenagers caught in a web of forbidden love. Contriving to marry and spend eternity together, Romeo and Juliet`s liaison causes a deadly quarrel between their families ` ultimately ending in the tragic suicides of the young lovers.
