Is Romeo and Juliet a book that has a lot of complex themes or messages? I haven't read it personally, but I just want to make sure I'm not in-over-my-head because I have two weeks of holidays to read the book, and watch a film and write a 5 page journal for each text, plus I have many other holiday assignments as well.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare can be read at many levels. Many U.S. students read it in English class when they're 13 to 15 years old. The basic theme is easy for young teens to understand. Since there are many film versions of this play, you can probably do your assignment by watching one of the films. I believe the most recent popular film came out about 10 years ago.
