Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet | William Shakespeare

This unique edition of Romeo and Juliet from Dead Dodo Vintage includes the full original text as well as exclusive features not available in other editions.Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.Romeo and Juliet belong to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. Its plot is based on an Italian tale, translated into verse as The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562 and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1567. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both but, to expand the plot, developed supporting characters, particularly Mercutio and Paris. Believed to have been written between 1591 and 1595, the play was first published in a quarto version in 1597. This text was of poor quality, and later editions corrected it, bringing it more in line with Shakespeare's original.Shakespeare's use of his poetic dramatic structure, especially effects such as switching between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension, his expansion of minor characters, and his use of sub-plots to embellish the story, has been praised as an early sign of his dramatic skill. The play ascribes different poetic forms to different characters, sometimes changing the form as the character develops. Romeo, for example, grows more adept at the sonnet over the course of the play.

Just watched Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet with a live choir at Union Chapel in Islington. It was so good and the venue was stunning will definitely be looking out for more Backyard Cinema events.

"Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow."

A little summer reading for my daughter. Thought the YOLO Juliet version might make the assignment a little less daunting! 😂

Mehso-so

So for literature class, we had to read Romeo and Juliet. Here are my thoughts. —————————-
This is definitely not the book for everyone. The language is very nice and well thought out like all of Shakespeare‘s other works, but the story generally doesn‘t interest me. I believe it would be more interesting if I got to see it as a play, but currently, it is not for me. I do however appreciate the pacing.

The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet | William Shakespeare
post image

I gotta admit that This Classic is Eternal. That's for sure.
Here are some beautiful lines from it:

¶ Thus with a kiss I die ¶.

¶ Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. ¶

¶ Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;

Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night... ¶

(More in comments)

Aashkaar ¶ My bounty is as boundless as the sea,

My love as deep; the more I give to thee,

The more I have, for both are infinite. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Don't waste your love on somebody, who doesn't value it ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. then your love would also change ¶ 2mo
See All 24 Comments
Aashkaar ¶ Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast. ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ hand

This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:

My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand

To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

Juliet:

Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,

Which mannerly devotion shows in this;

For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,

And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.

Romeo:

Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?
2mo
Aashkaar (Cont'd-). Juliet:

Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.

Romeo:

O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do;

They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.

Juliet:

Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake.

Romeo:

Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.

Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.

Juliet:

Then have my lips the sin that they have took.

Romeo:

Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!

Give me my sin again.

Juliet:

You kiss by the book. ¶

2mo
Aashkaar ¶ See how she leans her cheek upon her hand.

O, that I were a glove upon that hand

That I might touch that cheek! ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ I defy you, stars ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ O, here

Will I set up my everlasting rest,

And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars

From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last!

Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you

The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss

A dateless bargain to engrossing death! ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate!

O any thing, of nothing first create!

O heavy lightness, serious vanity,

Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms,

Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,

Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!

This love feel I, that feel no love in this. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Under love's heavy burden do I sink ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ You are a lover. Borrow Cupid's wings

and soar with them above a common bound. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;

Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;

Being vexed, a sea nourished with loving tears.

What is it else? A madness most discreet,

A choking gall, and a preserving sweet. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar *Here‘s what love is: a smoke made out of lovers' sighs. When the smoke clears, love is a fire burning in your lover‘s eyes. If you frustrate love, you get an ocean made out of lovers' tears. What else is love? It‘s a wise form of madness. It‘s a sweet lozenge that you choke on.* 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ 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 pardon'd, and some punished:

For never was a story of more woe

Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?

It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,

Who is already sick and pale with grief,

That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.

Be not her maid, since she is envious;

Her vestal livery is but sick and green

And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.

It is my lady, O, it is my love!

Oh, that she knew she were! ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ turn him into stars and form a constellation in his image. His face will make the heavens so beautiful that the world will fall in love with the night and forget about the garish sun. ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Eyes, look your last!

Arms, take your last embrace!

And, lips, oh you the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss a dateless bargain to engrossing death! ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright

It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night

Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear;

Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear. ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn. ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ He jests at scars that never felt a wound. ¶ 2mo
Aashkaar *It‘s easy for someone to joke about scars if they‘ve never been cut.* 2mo
Aashkaar ¶ I dreamt my lady came and found me dead

. . . . . . . . . . . .

And breathed such life with kisses in my lips

That I revived and was an emperor ¶
2mo
Aashkaar ¶ It were a grief so brief to part with thee.

Farewell. ¶

I finished this book this week with my freshman English students. I find it fulfilling that the majority of the students end up enjoying the story. When we begin, many of them (especially the boys) are convinced they will hate it. Then they realize how much fun it is to read and act out. I love it!

“These violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey is loathsome in his own deliciousness and in the taste confounds the appetite. Therefore love moderately. Long love doth so. Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.”

Day 5 - For me it‘s Romeo and Juliet. Maybe it‘s because I had to read it in high school, but I just kept thinking how stupid and dense they were.

ErinSueGreads I hated everything about Romeo and Juliet honestly hahahh 4mo
jb72 @ErinSueG This is harsh, but jeez they both deserved to die from stupidity. And she was only 13 years old!! 4mo
ErinSueGreads Yes Darwin Award material right there 4mo
j9brown Drives me nuts when people equate other couples or their own relationships with these two. They were dumb and they died, the end! Not admirable, not something to aspire to! 4mo

Dear Purists: Please be kind.

I really liked this adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, set in the suburb of Verona Beach. I love the dissonance between the modern characters, props, and setting and the Shakespearean English dialogue of the original play. It made for a surreal and beautiful experience that played well to my literary and artistic senses.

Pogue This was one of my favorite adaptations. It shows how the story is essentially about gangs and their fights, not about Romance. 4mo

LiterRohde @BookishTrish I have not. But I can see how she would be a good choice as narrator. 4mo
PaperbackPirate @LiterRohde I think it shows the quality of the story if it‘s still relevant today, so if there is a grump tell them to take it as a compliment! 😁 4mo

Oh Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or if thou wilt not , be but sworn my love
And I‘ll no longer be a Capulet.
Tis but thy name that is my enemy ...

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon‘d, and some punished;
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

#FallIntoReading Day 2: My #Family doing our very own Romeo and Juliet tour while in Verona last year. This was taken at Verona's tallest Medieval tower, built by the Lamberti family in 1172 with a panoramic view of the city.
