Product description

A story of ill-fated lovers whose untimely deaths unite two feuding families, Romeo and Juliet has become the archetype of young love destined to meet a tragic end.

The hatred between the House of the Capulets and the House of the Montagues is well known in Verona. Yet love blossoms between Romeo and Juliet. A brawl between the kinsmen of the Houses leads to Romeo’ s exile, and from then on it is a series of misjudgments and chance – of time, place, and event that inexorably play out the lovers’ doom.

One of the most popular of Shakespeare’ s plays, and one of his most performed, Romeo and Juliet is an enduring love story of emblematic proportions. Campfire’ s adaptation seeks to bring this iconic work of Shakespeare to young readers in a language that is simple yet Shakespearean, and art that movingly recreates a tragic romance of 16th-century feudal Italy.
