First love at first sight grips Romeo and Juliet in a secret passion. But they are from families that are sworn enemies who can never let them be together. And so their desire for each other breeds drama and tragedy. A story of intense love and bitter rivalry, Romeo and Juliet contains some of the most memorable characters in English literature. This short and accessible retelling captures the style of Shakespeare's original language.
