Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shakespeare's classic tale of star-crossed lovers.

The fair city of Verona runs with the blood of warring families, while two young lovers dare to rebel against a destiny that declares they should be enemies. One of the greatest love stories of all time, Romeo and Juliet is filled with some of Shakespeare's most exquisite language and rich poetry. This intensely romantic and popular play has inspired countless performances-a favorite from high school gymnasiums to professional stages and silver screens across the world. Beautifully packaged with a DVD of the BBC production, unique features of this Signet Classics edition include an overview of Shakespeare's life, a special introduction to the play, the source from which Shakespeare derived Romeo and Juliet-Arthur Brooke's The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet-dramatic criticism from the past and present, a comprehensive stage and screen history, and up-to-date recommended readings.

DVD INCLUDES:

The acclaimed BBC production of Romeo and Juliet, one of the most faithful and distinctive versions of Shakespeare's play on film, boasting a star cast with Academy Award-winning John Gielgud as the Chorus and Alan Rickman as Tybalt.
