As a GCSE english student, i didnt get the language used in R&J at first and found the play very hard to read and hard to write an essay on.

This book is a life-saver! It has summaries of each Act as well as character files, clever language and theme ideas (that you are unlikely to find yourself) as well as essay-writing tips. I found the play a lot easier to write about with this book.

Also, it is a good price on here, i paid a fiver for it. What more do you want?!

This book is an excellent introduction to what can be a dense and complex play. It starts with a simple plot outline. It then progresses to more in depth analysis of the play scene by scene. After which it lays out some key themes, symbols and ideas in the play in the forms of mini essays. It has a fairly good glossary, a potted history of Shakespeare himself and how his plays would have appeared. It also has a good time line and chronology, a glossary of common theatrical and critical terms and a good recommended reading list. It is very useful indeed.

This guide to Romeo and Juliet explains the play in a clear and easily acessible way that makes understanding the play a whole lot easier. With exam tips and in depth as well as summarised explanations it is something you should not be without!

York Notes are invaluable to understanding the behind-the-scene meaning of the characters and events when viewing film adaptations of Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet". For example, the Baz Lurhmann film adaptation of the play, apparently widely used in schools, is comparable to the film "West Side Story" but with his ultra-modernistic approach the real meaning of the play is lost, that is where York Notes come to the rescue and keep you on track. Much of the original text is lacking and the scenes shortened and changed around, hence the need to refer to back-up notes.

The York Notes series of GCSE study guides are consistently superb, and this is no exception. Accessible to all abilities, comprehensive, and attractively presented, it is a must buy for all GCSE exam students.

Excellent conidition. I am curently studying GCSE English and my task was to redo a piece of coursework. By combining my background knowledge with the notes in this book I managed to get A* for my first draft which is rather unusual for me. Very informative and makes excellent points (though at times contradictory to my background knowlege)

Then this book is for them. Written in a very readable way, it really brings the play to life for those who, 'Just can't see the point'.
