Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: ROMEO & JULIET: The Whole Play

What do you think are some of R&J's most lasting legacies outside of the play itself?

 

I'm interested in the fact that it continues to influence literature, books, and popular culture in so many ways.

 

For example, in young adult pop culture even within the past year, I've noticed a movie called Letters to Juliet and the popular novel and movie, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

 

What have you noticed?

Shakespeare may have written one of the first works to portray romantic love in a time of arranged marriages.  In some ways, he set the pattern for man-woman relationships in western society for years to come.
