The best side-by-side version of the play I've found. I recommend it to all of my students when we read the play during the school year.

Its a sweet book and very romantic. You dont want to put it down right aways. You just want to keep reading it to understand it.

I'm all for this series, not just for students. For anyone who wants to get into Shakespeare, it's great to have some help and not miss anything that is going on. I recommend reading Shakespeare's language first and then (when needed) the explanation (given side by side for every page). After a while you get used to the original language and you don't need the explanations as often. You'll feel comfortable enough with archaic words and phrases. For me Romeo and Juliet is at least as much a comedy as it is a tragedy. For the silly aspects of love - intoxication, unstable emotions, overly dramatic responses - R and J are a celebration and a parody.

"Some shall be pardoned, and some punished.<br/>For never was a story of more woe<br/>Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
