Romeo and Juliet was Shakespeare's first great tragedy, a richly lyrical love story that has long been one of the author's most popular plays for performer and audience alike. Romeo and Juliet is a simple but dramatic cautionary tale about the blindness that both love and hate can engender. As performed by Claire Bloom and Albert Finney, this lively production captures the youthful exuberance and poetic passion that characterize all of Shakespeare's early work and makes Romeo and Juliet in particular the greatest romantic creation in English Literature.

This unabridged, full-cast recording is a wonderful way to experience and listen to Shakespeare out-loud. Download and start listening now!

    " Very handy to have around to refer to, if i was to buy individual copies of all his works it would be costly and take up far too much space. Alhough of course i still like to buy special copies of my favourites. "

    " I haven't read everything in it, obviously, and the 5 stars is mostly because...well, the book has everything Shakespeare and I bought it at a used-book store four years ago, in mint condish, for 20 bucks. If that doesn't deserve a 5, right off the bat, I don't know what does. Bargain. "

    " Didn't read the whole thing of course....but this is the edition I used in college. Very nice annotated edition, however it's a bit bulky. ;-) I kept it, because really, how much is Shakespeare going to change when my kid takes it in college? "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
