Part of the Wordsworth classics series
See all formats and editions

The Wordsworth Classics' Shakespeare Series presents a newly-edited sequence of William Shakespeare's works.

The textual editing endeavours to take account of recent scholarship while giving the material a careful reappraisal.

About this book: Love, sex and death are the components of Shakespeare's classic story of the love of two young people which reaches across the barriers of family and convention.

It encompasses great love, high drama, low comedy and a tragic ending.

Romeo and Juliet is a pure tragedy of youth told in verse that is both youthful and intense.

The loveliness and the music of the poetry make believable the otherwise commonplace afflictions of blighted love.

The beautiful personification of some of the main characters has caused Romeo, Juliet, Mercutio and the Nurse to become part of the world's literary mythology.
