“If love be rough with you, be rough with love;
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.”
William Shakespeare; Romeo and Juliet
(We’re just like them, except no one dies.)
Also, we’ll have books. I don’t think they had enough books. -Laura
30 Day Book Challenge: Day Eight – most overrated play
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Now, I can’t say that I dislike Romeo and Juliet or Shakespeare, but every time we talk about Shakespeare it lands back on this play. It’s kind of like the radio when they play a really good song too many times. I don’t blame English professors or high school teachers for putting it into the curriculum, but there are others of Shakespeare that we could use to discuss his writing and style.

Romeo And Juliet re-covered by Simon Lindenthaler. I really like this one.
