Romeo and Juliet (Timeless Shakespeare)

by William Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet fall in love at first sight. Yet the bitter feud between their families forbids all contact. Can the power of their love stand up against such a longstanding history of hatred? Adapted by Tom Gorman

Romeo & Juliet & Vampires

by William Shakespeare Claudia Gabel

"You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless." The Capulets and the Montagues have some deep and essential differences. Blood differences. Of course, the Capulets can escape their vampire fate, and the Montagues can try not to kill their undead enemies. But at the end of the day, their blood feud is unstoppable. So it's really quite a problem when Juliet, a vampire-to-be, and Romeo, the human who should be hunting her, fall desperately in love. What they don't realize is how deadly their love will turn out to be-or what it will mean for their afterlives. . . . This riotous twist on the ultimate tale of forbidden romance is simply to die for.

Romeo y Julieta

by William Shakespeare

En medio de la lucha entre familias rivales dos personajes juveniles viven un amor tan apasionado como imposible. La reconciliación llegará tarde, cuando ya se ha consumado la tragedia. La traición, la lealtad, el odio, los celos, la pasión, son algunos de los temas que William Shakespeare llevó a las tablas permitiendo a sus personajes la libertad de elegir entre los caminos posibles, para luego atenerse a las consecuencias de su proceder. Escrita en cinco actos, Romeo y Julieta expresa de modo insuperable el mito del amor romántico arquetípico en la civilización moderna.

The Second Part of King Henry IV (The New Cambridge Shakespeare)

by William Shakespeare Giorgio Melchiori

Melchiori offers a fresh approach to the text of The Second Part of King Henry IV, which he sees as an unplanned sequel to the First Part, itself a 'remake' of an old, non-Shakespearean play. The Second Part deliberately exploits the popular success of Sir John Falstaff, introduced in Part One; the resulting rich humour gives a comic dimension to the play which makes it a unique blend of history, morality play and comedy. Among modern editions of the play this is the one most firmly based on the quarto. It presents an eminently actable text, by showing how Shakespeare's own choices are superior for practical purposes to suggested emendations, and by keeping interference in the original stage directions to a minimum, in order to respect, as Shakespeare did, the players' freedom. This updated edition includes a new introductory section by Adam Hansen describing recent stage, film and critical interpretations.

Also featured are key facts about the individual selections; an index of the first lines of the sonnets; a chronology of Shakespeare's life and times; and recommendations for further reading. Ideal for students and general readers alike, this modern and accessible edition sets a new standard in Shakespearean literature for the twenty-first century.

Sueño de una noche de verano

by William Shakespeare

Al bosque mágico de Atenas, en el que reinan Titania y Oberon (enfrentados en agria disputa), y donde unos artesanos ensayan una obra para celebrar la boda de Teseo e Hipolita, llega un par de amantes en fuga, Lisandro y Hermia. Demetrio, el desairado prometido de Hermia, acude allí por Helena, a su vez enamorada de él. Entra en acción Puck, un malicioso duende acolito de Oberon, provisto de un filtro de amor que supuestamente zanjará todo conflicto entre los amantes, no sin antes desatar numerosas confusiones de amor y equívocos. Con la estructura onírica de una extravagante mascarada, Sueño de una noche de verano es una pieza de rigor formal y sofisticación, en la que el mundo de los amantes nobles y los artesanos -basado en la realidad histórica inglesa de la época- coexiste con el mundo fantástico de las hadas, arraigado al folclore y la mitología céltica.

by William Shakespeare Jonathan Bate Eric Rasmussen

This joyous play, the last comedy of Shakespeare's career, sums up his stagecraft with a display of seemingly effortless skill. Prospero, exiled Duke of Milan, living on an enchanted island, has the opportunity to punish and forgive his enemies when he raises a tempest that drives them ashore--as well as to forestall a rebellion, to arrange the meeting of his daughter, Miranda, with an eminently suitable young prince, and, more important, to relinquish his magic powers in recognition of his advancing age. Richly filled with music and magic, romance and comedy, the play's theme of love and reconciliation offers a splendid feast for the senses and the heart.From the Paperback edition.
