I got this for my grand daughter about 8 yrs ago or so, and it made her really enjoy reading about Romeo and Juliet since it was in a little more up to date language that she could understand. It also helped her in her literature class she was taking at the time.

This book has saved me more than once! I used it just the other day when teaching the famous balcony scene, "What's in a name....". Out textbook suggested having the students translating this particular passage into modern English, but gave no translation. So, I pulled out this book and it saved the day! I also suggested it to another teacher who was having the same problem. It would be nice if a school district would purchase these books for all of their students (with today's budgets, that won't happen). This book is well worth the money spent.

"Romeo and Juliet" is a simple love story that is brought to life by the poetry and beauty of Shakespeare's writing style. This is the story of two lovers who are caught between their feuding families and are unable to publicly show their affections. In the end they both die for their feelings conveying the message that love is the strongest bond between two people. The sonnet-like stanzas seems to breath life into the characters and create an emotional connection between the reader and the story. Shakespeare captures the deep feelings of each character by simply using powerful dialouge that leaves the reader breathless. I would recommend this play to anyone at an advanced reading level, since the language can at times be hard to decipher. This story will grab the hearts of even the toughest person, and bring tears to the eyes of those people who adore a good love story.

The Manual for Romeo and Juliet is not at all what it is advertised to be. It does NOT contain the original text of the play nor any "translation" of the play into modern English. It contains only brief summaries of the play's scenes and a modicum of analysis. If that is what you need, buy Cliff Notes for half the price.
