A Young Reader's Guide to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

ByMaria Fahey

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Many Shakespeare guides don’t trust young readers: they translate Shakespeare’s rich language into more ordinary speech and dictate the meanings of his scenes. But A Young Reader’s Guide to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is designed to help young readers listen carefully to what characters say and to use their imaginations to see the world of Romeo and Juliet for themselves. A preface offers key information about Shakespeare’s theater, an explanation of some common old-fashioned words readers will encounter, and a way to understand the play’s many metaphors and similes. Readers will then be guided to understand each scene of the play through a sequence of carefully designed questions that invites them to envision the characters and plots using story-boarding, illustration, and writing. A Young Reader’s Guide to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet gives readers the methods and the confidence to imagine the world of the play for themselves.
