The most enjoyable Shakespeare play I've read. Where can I buy Shakespeares popular works at affordable price? Nullifidian Annotated Complete Works editions can be found inexpensively, if you're not particular about them being used or not being the most up-to-date …more Annotated Complete Works editions can be found inexpensively, if you're not particular about them being used or not being the most up-to-date editions. For example, the Norton Shakespeare 2nd edition has been superseded by the 3rd edition, but the 2nd is still a perfectly adequate book.
If you want individual copies of the plays, I'd recommend the Folger Shakespeare editions. If you find yourself puzzled about a word, phrase, or allusion, you can just move your eye over to the other page and see it defined. You don't have to go to the bottom of the page or the back of the book. And if you're confident about your grasp of Shakespeare's language, you might find the Dover Thrift Editions perfectly adequate.
They're only lightly annotated with footnotes and have only a page-long prefatory note at best, but they're definitely the cheapest individual editions of the plays.

Romeo and Juliet, abridged. How old is Romeo supposed to be? I found you a husband! Every Shakespeare heroine needs a sassy gay friend View all comments. Aug 27, Nate rated it did not like it. Her father states she "hath not yet seen the change of fourteen years" in 1. Even in Shakespeare's England, most women were at least 21 before they married and had children. It's not clear how old Romeo is, but either he's also a stupid little kid who needs to be slapped, or he's a child molester, and neither one is a good thing.
When I was in middle school or high school, around the time we read this book, I remember a classmate saying in class that when her and her boyfriends' eyes met across the quad, they just knew they were meant to be together forever. How convenient that her soulmate happened to be an immensely popular and good-looking football player, and his soulmate happened to be a gorgeous cheerleader!
That's not love at first sight, that's lust at first sight. If they were really lucky, maybe as time went on they would also happen to "click" very well, that lust would develop into love it didn't , and they would end up together forever they didn't. But if they saw each other at a school dance, decided they were "like, totally in love," and then the next day decided to run off and get married, we shouldn't encourage that as a romantic love story, we should slap the hell out of them both to wake them up to reality.
For what it's worth, my cynicism doesn't come from any bitterness towards life or love. I met my wife when we were 17, and we've now been together almost 10 years, married for a little over 2. Fortunately for me, she turned out to be awesome. If we had decided the day after meeting each other that we were hopelessly in love and needed to get married immediately, we would have been idiots, and I hope someone who I trusted and respected would have slapped me, hard.
If we were 13 at the time, that would be even worse. 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.

Well, he's old enough to kill Juliet's cousin in a sword fight, so Probably not But since he's such a punk little pussy - what with the whining, sobbing, and spouting off crap poetry - I'm going to assume he's not much older than she is and say 15 or If I'm wrong, don't correct me.

Romeo and Juliet Synopsis
Juliet: The fuck?! And a pretty funny one at that! I originally gave it 3 stars, but I had to bump it up for making me giggle so much. I listened to this on Playaway, so I got to have the audio version with a full cast of characters, sound effects, and music.
