"Romeo and Juliet" is a tragedy about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime.
"Hamlet" is a tragedy about a young prince's halting pursuit of revenge for the murder of his father and it unfolds in a series of highly charged confrontations that have held audiences spellbound for nearly four centuries. Those fateful exchanges, and the anguished soliloquies that precede and follow them, probe depths of human feeling rarely sounded in any art.
The Simplified Chinese is in the front of the book followed by the English at the back.
