Shakespeare's classic love story, the "easy" way.

Actually, as a former English major (and an old-fashioned purist, I guess), I cringed when I learned that students could now read the modern English version of Shakespeare's plays in school, but...if it hooks 'em, I guess it's okay. At least these parallel editions show the original text on facing pages, so there's some exposure to the "real thing"!
