Books Info:

Romeo and Juliet free pdf Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Two families at war, and a pair of young, star-crossed lovers caught in the crossfire...Discover the tragic story at the heart of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare's most famous play. The age-appropriate text in Short, Sharp Shakespeare Stories: Romeo and Juliet introduces readers to the play by re-telling the story in modern English. It's an ideal introduction to Shakespeare for children of 9 and above, and perfect for fans of the Tony Ross and Andrew Matthews series Shakespeare Stories. The book also contains information about the background to Romeo and Juliet, its major themes, language, the Globe theatre, and Shakespeare's life during the time he was writing the play, so is a useful resource for project work, or for anyone studying the play itself. Poisons, and their application in 16th century England, are also examined, to give the play a factual grounding. Anna Claybourne's concise, witty text really brings out the humour and the drama of the stories, rendering them as relevant today as they were in Shakespeare's time. Comparisons with themes in modern life: love, revenge, family relationships, political power struggles, etc., serve to reinforce this. The text is supported by Tom Morgan-Jones' fantastic artwork, giving the series real visual appeal. Short, Sharp Shakespeare Stories allow children today to be as enthralled by Shakespeare's tales as audiences were 400 years ago. Publishing to coincide with the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, they are the ideal resource for project work connected to this, or to Shakespeare Week 2015. Other titles in the series include Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet.
