'But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east and Juliet is the sun!'

'This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet'

'A glooming peace this morning with it brings.
The sun for sorrow will not show his head.
Go hence to have more talk of these sad things.
Some shall be pardoned, and some punishe'd.
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo'.


The fair city of Verona is troubled by two feuding families: the Montagues and the Capulets. Their hatred for each other runs deep and they regularly disturb the streets with their fighting; so when Romeo Montague meets and falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet, it can only lead to a desperately tragic end.

Shakespeare's wonderful play is as relevant today as it was when it was written, over 400 years ago.

As with all Classical Comics' Shakespeare titles the period is faithful to the Bard's intentions, and there is a choice of three text versions.

'... one of the REAL ASSETS of this series [is that] it's exactly the same graphic cell, exactly the same page reference, so it might HELP TEACHERS who are trying to implement a DIFFERENTIATED CURRICULUM, catering to students of different abilities' [Michael Kulesza, Head of English, St Michael's College, Henley Beach, South Australia]

'Classical Comics DEMYSTIFY ... [and] ... promote ACCESSIBILITY and ENJOYMENT of the language of Shakespeare for students with language difficulties and ESL backgrounds' [Barbara O'Dwyer, North Geelong Secondary College, Victoria]
