Romeo & JulietBook
Read Shakespeare in graphic-novel form—with NO FEAR!
No Fear Shakespeare Graphic Novels is a series based on the translated texts of the plays found in No Fear Shakespeare. The original No Fear series made Shakespeare’s plays much easier to read, but these dynamic visual adaptations are impossible to put down. Each of the titles is illustrated in its own unique style, but all are distinctively offbeat, slightly funky, and appealing to teen readers. Each book will feature:
- Illustrated cast of characters<!--?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O /-->
- A helpful plot summary
- Line-by-line translations of the original play
- Illustrations that show the reader exactly what’s happening in each scene—making the plot and characters even clearer than in the original No Fear Shakespeare books

Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun
Peered forth the golden window of the east,
A troubled mind drove me to walk abroad,
Where, underneath the grove of sycamore
That westward rooteth from this city side,
So early walking did I see your son.
Towards him I made, but he was 'ware of me
And stole into the covert of the wood.
I, measuring his affections by my own,
Which then most sought where most might not be found,
Being one too many by my weary self,
Pursued my humor not pursuing his,
And gladly shunned who gladly fled from me.
- Benvolio, Act 1 Scene 1 Page 7
Oh Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo. Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and i'll no longer be a capulet".
"Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; whose misadventur'd piteous overthrows doth with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, and the continuance of their parents' rage, which, but their children's end, nought could remove, is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; the which if you with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend."

Romeo and Juliet love each other. Their parents are rival families. They can't be together, but fight to stay together anyways.
i also read the translations of the book. in the beginning it already tells us tat romeo and Juliet commit suicide in the end of the story and i have not yet finished the book. romeo meet Juliet at a mask party but they weren't wearing mask's and they made out on the first day they meet. romeo would sneak out at night to Juliet's balcony and they would talk till the sun rises. the continuing u would have to read yourself, tragedy comes when romeo gets abandon and had to leave and Juliet had to fake his death by drinking a vial but she thinks tat there's poison inside and it would kill him.
