Shakespeare. Oh Shakespeare, a name that strikes fear into many students like me, yet excitement to others (especially teachers). Out of Shakespeare’s many tragedies and comedies, one of his best known is Romeo and Juliet; “a classic” so I have been told. After bearing through months of sonnets, and decrypting the story, I came to enjoy the story of star-crossed lovers, tearing up a bit as the end was reached. Despite its roots in the ancient Shakespearean times (oh too long ago), Romeo and Juliet has impacted our modern day teenage lives.
