Classic Graphic Novels, the new collection from Lucent Books, brings the classics to life for a whole new generation of readers. Designed especially for young fans of the classics, comic book buffs and reluctant readers, this collection utilizes a fresh blend of contemporary storytelling and captivating artwork to entertain, educate and encourage students to return to these stories again and again.
Shakespeare's timeless play tells the story of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, whose great misfortune is that they come from feuding families -- a feud so deep and abiding that it leads to fighting and bloodshed on the streets of Verona. Forced into secrecy, the "star-crossed" young lovers ultimately choose love over life, and the two houses make a sorrowful peace.
"Most useful in a classroom setting, these volumes could serve as introductions to literary classics as well as companion volumes for students benefitting from a modified text."
