LoveReading View on Romeo and Juliet A Graphic Novel

Shakespeare’s tragic lovers brought to life in a lively and accessible format

This could be just the thing to awaken the interest of reluctant readers about to embark on the study of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies. The author and artist have a long partnership working on comic books and here they reveal their skill in the slick storytelling using different arrangements of panels, frames and speech bubbles to really evoke the characters, setting and story. The language used is straightforward and accessible, but cleverly echoes phrases and refrains from the original text. The useful end matter with notes on the life of Shakespeare and the historical and dramatic history of the play will be very useful to students and the discussion questions and writing prompts will assist them with essay writing. A valuable addition to any library or class collection.

But their families, the Montagues and Capulets, are locked in a deadly feud, and the teens' feelings could lead to disaster. Can the two find a way to be together without risking their love, and their lives? With extra background on the original play and its author, plus discussion questions and writing prompts, it's easy to introduce young readers to this dramatic literary classic.
