“For never was a story of more woe;

Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”

Overview

Truly one of the most significant works of literature ever written in any language, “Romeo and Juliet” is one of Shakespeare’s most influential and enduring plays. So, we’ll be diving into it full force. Shakespeare's command of the English language is part prose, part poetry, part music and part word-play. So, have fun with it. You'll be better for the experience. I promise.
