Author(s): William Shakespeare
The new dazzling "Romeo and Juliet" screenplay, adapted by Julian Fellowes ("Downton Abbey, GosfordbPark"), is paired with William Shakespeare's classic romantic tragedy, "Romeo and Juliet," in this omnibus edition.

"We can more easily decide between Shakespear and any other author, than between him and himself. Shall we quote any more passages to shew his genius or the beauty of Romeo and Juliet? At that rate, we might quote the whole."
