'Gilbert writes so well that you half suspect he could give up the day job,' The Independent. 'A natural storyteller,' The Times Educational Supplement (TES) The brand new edition includes Shakespeare's original play as well as a fabulously entertaining, controversial and challenging translation. This book is a perfect companion to Baz Luhrmann's great film 'Romeo + Juliet'. Written by a teacher who is also a best-selling author, 'Star-crossed' is a modern version of Romeo and Juliet which updates Shakespeare's classic play in a very entertaining fashion. In some ways it is faithful to the original text, providing a modern translation for every speech in the play. However, it uses poetic licence to make Shakespeare's language accessible to teenagers and adults: for example, bad language has been used when appropriate to the dialogue. This playscript is not suitable for children under the age of fifteen. After reading this modern translation, you'll understand and appreciate Shakespeare's text that much more.

About the Author:

Francis Gilbert is a writer who has been a secondary school teacher for over twenty years in various English schools. He has published numerous books, including 'I'm A Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here' and 'The Last Day of Term' as well as a series of study guides on classic texts such as 'Frankenstein', 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre', which are published on Kindle. He currently teaches part-time in a large comprehensive and is completing a PhD in Creative Writing and Education for which he writing an autobiographical novel, 'Who Do You Love?' and conducting some educational research that examines what happens when teachers share their fiction with their pupils. He is particularly interested in the ways in which teachers can cultivate a sense of beauty in their pupils by using the tools of the internet, including blogging, video and audio. He frequently tries to find new ways of engaging students in difficult concepts and texts; his modern version of 'Romeo and Juliet' arose from such an experiment.
