33. Romeo and Juliet in the tabloids

In unit 3 we dealt with the media and learnt to distinguish tabloids and quality papers. We also discussed the language of headlines.

It’s the perfect link between unit 3 and 4, don’t you think?

  1. Do you believe it’s a good idea to present a classical plot this way?
    I think it’s a kind of funny way of putting it, but not specially a good way of doing it. I mean, It sure does add a bit of humour to the story, but I prefer the classical story..

    Does it add a different perspective to the book?
    Well it does, it’s meant to be more modern and funny.
