2006 His Most Famous Works Wlliam Shakespeare Early Life records it is believed he was born on the 23rd of April 1564. William is the third child of John Shakespeare, a leather merchant, and Mary Arden a local heiress. William had two older sisters Judith and Joan, as well as three younger brothers Richard, Edmund, and Gilbert. His father was a very successful merchant who later became an alderman and bailiff for the Mayor. Will most

Capulet servant Montague servant Montague servant Capulet Servant Summary Favorite Passage 'Tis but thy name that is my enemy
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? It is nor hand , nor foot
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.
So Romeo would , were he not Romeo called,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo doff thy name;
And for thy name , which is no part of these,
Take all myself. Antony and Cleopatra
Julius Caesar
King Lear
Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeare also
wrote sonnets. A sonnet
is a form of a poem which
originated in Italy Romeo, the Montague son is lovesick. Benvolio,
Mercutio, and Romeo head to the Capulet household. Lord Capulet is hosting as dinner and it is said that many beautiful young women will be there. It is Benvolio an Mercutios idea that seeing these girls will take Romeo's mind off of Rosealine. His ex-girlfriend. The men enter the Capulet household and dance at the ball. The Capulet's are aware that Romeo is a Montague
but do not kick him out. Romeo and Juliet meet and fall instantly in love. Unaware of each others identities ( they are wearing masks) they kiss. Before dawn the next morning at the capulet's house Romeo climbs the wall to get a second look at Juliet. They meet and pledge mutual love. Only your name is hostile to me. You are you .Your
Surname means nothing. What is a "Montague"? It isn't real flesh, like a hand, foot, arm, or face. Oh choose some other name! Why is the name important? What we call a "rose" would still be fragrant it we gave it some other name. So Romeo would be as perfect if he were not called "Romeo". Romeo, drop your name. In the place of a name which is no physical part of you, take all of me. Modern Re-Write Original I would recommend this book to boys and girls ages 12 years and up. This book provides knowledge about the way people spoke and the language in the 1500's. For those who had interest in learning about the language this book would be a great resource. Although, many young children would likely not be as interested in the language and it would also be too complex for anyone younger than the age of 12. This is a very complicated book in that it is actually a play so i would recommend you pay attention to who it is that is speaking at all times and take your time reading the book. It will help it make as much sense as possible and you will understand the book better. For those interested in the love aspect of the book it is original and intriguing girls will be particularly interested to find out how Romeo swept Juliet off of her feet. Boys might be more interested in the murders of various characters. It is very suspenseful. I also think that this book does fit into the grade nine curriculum very well. ENJOY!! At sunrise Romeo asks Friar Laurence if he will Marry Juliet and Romeo. He agrees and Juliet's nurse is sent to receive the message. Later that afternoon Juliet heads to church for "confessions" and she marries Romeo. Mercuitio a montague gets into a fight with Tybalt a Capulet in the streets. Tybalt stabbed and killed Mercuitio and Romeo killed Tybalt for killing his friend. Romeo is exiled by Prince Escalusand can not return to Verona, Italy. Or he will be killed. Juliet mourns of her cousins death but also of her husbands banishment. Her parents arrange a marriage between her and Paris to cheer her up. She does not agree with the marriage. They are not aware that she loves Romeo. She goes along with marrying Paris. Friar laurence helped her with a plan. She will drink a poison the night before her weeding . It will put her to sleep for 48 hours. Her family will think she is dead. They will put her in the family vault. Friar Laurence will meet her when she wakes up and she shall run away to Mantua where Romeo is hiding. Romeo does not receive the message that she has "faked" her death and believes she is truly dead. He heads to the family vault to kill himself with poison. he meets Paris there and kills him when he is interrupting his suicide. Romeo drinks the poison and lays beside Juliet. He has died and Juliet awakens from her sleep to find her husband and Paris dead. Friar Laurence arrives and tries to get her to leave but she will not listen. He leaves and Juliet takes Romeos dagger and stabs herself.The Prince, The Montagues, and The Capulets agree to peace and are saddened that it took the death of their daughter, and sons to die for peace between the families. A girl on a holiday in Italy finds
unanswered letters to Juliet
and tries to discover who the
two lovers were. Two people from different worlds fall in love and fight to be together Anne Hathaway Anne Hathaway This Reminds me of Romeo and Juliet because it is a movie based on the original story. Even though in the end they are separated separated. Just like Romeo and Juliet Elizabeth
