“A love story, an epic tragedy, a cautionary tale about parents respecting their children, even, incredibly, more than a minor note of humor—Romeo and Juliet has it all,” says editor Sara Barkat.
Now, in this special volume, you can encounter this enduring play in the company of four vibrant women who love stories and ideas. At turns thoughtful, informative, personal, or funny, these are voices that will draw you into a timeless work and transform Shakespeare into more than just an old playwright you were (or are) compelled to read.
Popular in his own time, speaking in ways that made his audiences laugh and cry, Shakespeare is not just for people who are “literary.”
Find your way into his beautiful (sometimes blush-worthy) words. And maybe take a few choice phrases with you into the future—for love, or laughter, or a tease. This volume includes the play, essays, personal annotations by Callie Feyen, four bonus classroom activities, and a glossary.
