'Shakespeare invented the human as we continue to know it' Harold Bloom

Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare's immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.

Romeo and Juliet is a famous love story which is full of sorrow. Though this story made me sad, I enjoyed reading it and was sometimes moved by strong love. This is a short version of the original story, but now I want to read the whole story. Leer comentario completo

This is a so sad story. I had never read romeo and juliet, so i didn't know this story. I was surprised at their parents. I can't understand that they didn't belive their children. But I like mercucio,romio's friend. I think he is one of the key persons. I reccomend this book. Leer comentario completo
