Romeo and Juliet

adapted from William Shakespeare

Questo libro può essere scaricato e letto in Apple Books su Mac o dispositivi iOS.


Taken from one of the greatest classics of world literature, Romeo and Juliet is the new e-book illustrated by Edizioni Piuma. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of the great English playwright William Shakespeare, Edizioni Piuma decided to revise the text for a younger audience (over 6 years old) to let them appreciate this great and immortal work. Themes such as love and hatred will never cease to be always present, especially for a young readership.

Da Publishers Weekly

02/03/1998 – Adults looking for a dramatically abridged version of Shakespeare's tragic love story with some lovely backdrops of Verona may find something to savor in Early's (Sleeping Beauty; William Tell) picture-book rendition. She gives a nod to several medieval fresco artists and to such Renaissance painters as Michelangelo and Botticelli, whose ornate patterns and borders may well be the inspiration for her paintings. A sharp attention to detail-- including the exquisite geometric designs of palace floors, elaborate period dress, authentic Verona streetscapes and the delicate strands of Juliet's golden tresses--distinguishes Early's art, but the lovers' faces are mask-like, and even the most dramatic of scenes appear to be static. Early's narrative paraphrases the action of this drama while showcasing some of the most legendary lines from the Bard's quill. But these clunky juxtapositions detract from Shakespeare's own words, as in this example: "Lord Capulet replied that Juliet was too young . Why not wait a little longer? `Let two more summers wither in their pride ere we may think her ripe to be a bride,' he entreated." Children will be better off waiting for the original--and adults better off returning to it. All ages.
