I love this version, i have almost as many notes in margin as there are in the text...and have a line from this tattooed on my chest!
But i would generally disagree with people who say it's a great love story, because it's a story of hatred anger and bigotry, that has a love story within it. Many good people die in it solely because of a feud between their fathers. A feud in which children have taken it upon themselves to re-enact on the street. It has comparisons to todays woes and we all know someone whose dad doesn't like someone else's and tells their children that...teaches them hatred. That is wrong.
But i do love the story (although my English graduate friends keep telling me it's derived from the ancient greek plays - like the rest of Shakespeare work) and i am fully aware and am non committal on the authorship debate.
