Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume.

When Romeo first lays eyes on the bewitching Juliet, it's love at first sight. But though their love runs true and deep, it is also completely forbidden. With family and fate determined to keep them apart, will Romeo and Juliet find a way to be together?

William Shakespeare's masterpiece is one of the most enduring stories of star-crossed love of all time. Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience with both the original play and a prose retelling of the beloved story, this is the must-have edition of a timeless classic.

Synopsis:

In this Graphic Classics version of a famous Shakespearean tragedy, mortal enmity exists between the powerful houses of Montague and Capulet, but Romeo, the Montaguesa son, and Juliet, daughter of the Capulets, are in love. Theirs is a romance destined to end in tragedy. Graphic Classics are graphic novel versions of immortal novels and plays, presented in a way to help make great literary works accessible to students, and encourage boys and girls to discover the joy of reading the masterworks in their original form. Titles in this series tell absorbing, fast-paced stories dramatized with high-quality color illustrations. Each Graphic Classics title includes a thumbnail biography of the author, a list of his or her important works, a timeline of historic events that helped inspire the story, general notes, and an index. Graphic Classics titles are available in both paperback and hardcover editions.

Synopsis:

Before Edward and Bella of the Twilight series, there was the original tale of forbidden love--"Romeo & Juliet"--now beautifully repackaged for a modern teen audience.
