The Greatest Love Story Ever Told,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romeo and Juliet (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
This work needs no introduction. Two star crossed lovers, divided by family feud, united by love, can ultimately only be together in death. The word "tragedy" was coined for it.
It is my favourite of Shakespeare's plays and is the original and best. There is nothing wrong with West Side Story or Shakespeare in Love or even William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet starring Leonardo di Caprio, but the pure essence of the Bard's poetry is here, in the original.
If it doesn't make you cry you have a heart of stone!
