Just Finished Reading: Romeo and Juliet
I've been wanting to reread this for a while, so I bought a copy for $3 at this used book store. Of Shakespeare's works I have only ever read this, Hamlet, and MacBeth. Romeo and Juliet is by far my favorite of the three. A bunch of the lines from this play have become totally cliche now because of how much Romeo and Juliet has been done in movies, but I don't think that it takes away from how great this play is. I'm really curious to see how Hailee Steinfeld does as Juliet. We're so used to seeing older actresses play this part, and the only other movie I have ever seen her in has her playing a rugged southern girl.
