Romeo and Juliet

4.59

Perhaps the greatest love story ever written, William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the world's most famous tale of “star-crossed lovers,” a young man and woman who meet by chance and fall instantly in love. This love they share, and the physical passion that comes with it, is of such hopeless and naive intensity that only those in love for the very first time can comprehend it. But their families are sworn enemies, and in order to be together, the lovers are prepared to risk everything. Set in Verona, a city torn by feuds and gang warfare, Romeo and Juliet is a dazzling combination of passion and hatred, bawdy comedy and high tragedy.

This major new digital edition of Shakespeare’s masterwork beautifully illuminates the timeless romantic tragedy that has long captured the hearts of audiences the world over.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (1564-1616) was an English playwright poet, and actor, regarded as the world's pre-eminent dramatist, and the greatest writer in the English language. Author of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Hamlet and King Lear, he is often called the “Bard of Avon,” England's national poet.
