This could be used to link in with History and current affairs on the war and violence. The story could also be linked to Literacy, where children may write their own versions, or even write their own endings.

This could perhaps be used as a speaking and listening assessment, where children discuss their choices and read out their work to the class.

I believe children would enjoy reading this, as this story has become iconic, particularly the characters of Romeo and Juliet. Mar 03, Angela Treacy rated it really liked it. The book uses accessible child-friendly English to retell the story of the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues in Verona and how Romeo and Juliet must overcome this in order to be together.

The tale is that of tragedy and takes a sad turn when lines of communication fail after Romeo is banished from Verona and news reaches him that Juliet has passed away. I enjoyed reading this book as the illustrations and language used told the story in good detail without the use of old English.

The descriptions and use of adjectives and adverbs in the story would broaden the vocabulary of the children for use in their own story writing. I think that this book would be a good introduction to Shakespeare for primary aged children and that activities used around the story could slowly introduce some quotes from the original text to get children accustomed to the style that Shakespeare wrote in.

Nov 16, Claire Russell rated it really liked it. This version of Romeo and Juliet is an abridged version of the original Shakespeare.

It contains the majority of the famous phrases from the original, but misses out 'Romeo, Romeo where for art thou Romeo'. The book begins with a cast list, together with some great illustrations so the division between the Capulets and the Montague's can be easily understood.

It finishes with two information sections, one on love and hate in Romeo and Juliet and one on Shakespeare and the Globe theatre.

It's bei This version of Romeo and Juliet is an abridged version of the original Shakespeare. It's being used in my Year 4 class in Literacy.

All the children are engaged in the book, mainly because of the fight scenes as they find the love scenes a bit too funny!

It's been used to increase their vocabulary and punctuation knowledge, but most of all for them to plan and write an eye witness account of the fight between Romeo and Tybalt.

It such a short book it shows every aspect from the so very famous play and is a great into to Shakespeare at Primary level, the way it is written demonstrates every theme that Shakespeare intended to be shown through Rome and Juliet. A must read. Jan 25, Realini rated it it was amazing Shelves: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Another version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at: But then there are different adaptations.

The last one was broadcast a couple of days ago.

On National Television. The director is a respected and acclaimed personality. I used to see her plays, about thirteen years ago. After a fervor of s Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Another version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at: After a fervor of seeing anything interesting on the stages of the capital, a drought followed.

Interrupted now, albeit indirectly, through the medium of TVR2. The odds are not excellent this far. Ever since routine that I hope will be transformed into a ritual was started, only one in four dramatizations proved worthwhile.

Romeo and Juliet was another misfire. And yet, the play is an established chef d'oeuvre. Catalina Buzoianu is a distinguished director. Well, for one thing, you can't treat Shakespeare and especially the major plays with anything but utmost respect.

And I dare say it is really hard to rise up to such a dizzying level. It is difficult to breathe on the Everest. The same applies for Romeo and Juliet. Actors lacking talent need not apply. I must add that I was not keen on Zeffirelli' perspective. And not even the presence of Leonardo do Caprio and Claire Danes could not prevent a modern transfer to the big screen from being only ordinary or worse.

In my opinion. The actors and actresses present in the local production have a rather good image in the land. But Adrian Pintea was not the Romeo that I expected. I don't even know his partner's name, but she was lackluster. One other major flaw that I saw- except for casting and weird view- is the attempt to offer something different.

Original at all costs. Understandable intent, after all, why do the same thing all over again?

But disastrous nevertheless. Again, maybe only for this viewer.

Others might have cherished the whole kerfuffle. When the wedding party arrives to greet Juliet the next day, they believe she is dead. The Friar sends a messenger to warn Romeo of Juliet's plan and bids him to come to the Capulet family monument to rescue his sleeping wife.

Act V The vital message to Romeo doesn't arrive in time because the plague is in town so the messenger cannot leave Verona. Hearing from his servant that Juliet is dead, Romeo downloads poison from an Apothecary in Mantua. He returns to Verona and goes to the tomb where he surprises and kills the mourning Paris.

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Romeo takes his poison and dies, while Juliet awakens from her drugged coma. She learns what has happened from Friar Laurence, but she refuses to leave the tomb and stabs herself. The Friar returns with the Prince, the Capulets, and Romeo's lately widowed father. The deaths of their children lead the families to make peace, and they promise to erect a monument in Romeo and Juliet's memory.Beat that, Stephenie Meyer.

Gwyneth Paltrow! You say you don't like it But girl I know you're a liar 'Cause when we kiss Ooooh, Fire Juliet grows weak and almost falls.

Enlightened adults injecting this into our youth as a classic love story for the generations, providing further support for their angst-filled false ideas of love and marriage, is probably worst of all.

The balcony scene alone is worth the time it takes to read the entire book.
