How can you not love Romeo and Juliet? It's tragic, it's beautiful, it's Shakespeare at his best! Just don't base your relationship goals on these two.

This version, which was a Library Sale find, and will be added to my Little Free Library, is from a BBC television production. The series, which was aimed at producing quality versions of Shakespeare's plays, published the plays to go along with student viewing so they might read along with the text as they watched the play. This is a nice idea, and is the way Shakespeare should be taught. The producers were also sure to mark the changes they made (omitted or moved lines) to avoid confusion, but providing the full text of the play in the book.

This version also includes a glossary in the back that includes any words or phrases that might have had a different meaning in Shakespeare's day or have fallen out of usage and might need explanation.

I adore Shakespeare, and want to spread that love to others, so I make sure there are always a few of his plays in my Little Free Library. ( )
