That noise you hear is William Shakespeare rolling over in his grave thanks to the irrevent but easily understood commentary by Lori Mitchell in her debut book on "Romeo and Juliet."

This book and its subsequent editions should act as a spark to explore Shakespeare's plays and a tongue-in-cheek reference guide to anyone struggling through a school assignment.
