Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet

501 ratings, 104 reviews

Romeo and Juliet is synonymous with the tragic fate of two young "star-cross'd lovers." The idea wasn't originally Shakespeare's - he borrowed the plot from a few other sources-but his version is the only real living masterpiece.

What makes Shakespeare's work so timeless is its depth and varied interpretations. Scholars have never settled on an a grand, unifying theme for Romeo and Juliet, though its smaller elements can be seen as fate, time, the dualities of light and dark, and obviously - Love. It's been taught and performed countless times over its 400 year history, not to mention bowdlerized and plagiarized. This is the original, not-made-for-MTV version.

In all honesty, i have read the play, played i and disected it. I have never read such a horrible book/play in my life. There were times when i felt the strong need to shake Juliet back and forth for being such a idiot. Please, do yourself a favor and don't read it. You won't be missing anything, the entire story is just about a buch of hormonal teenagers who can't solve any problem without killing themselves.

A beautifully tragic love story. I played Juliet earlier this year, and there are so many things to be learned - if you study the iambic pentameter closely, Juliet never says ro-me-o until the very end when she is is wOe. She says it rom-yo, quickly, rushing. That's the beauty of the bard.
