This major new edition of Shakespeare's greatest tragedy of love argues that that play is ultimately Juliet's. The play text is expertly edited and the on-page commentary notes discuss issues of staging, theme, meaning and Shakespeare's use of his sources to give the reader deep and engaging insights into the play. The richly illustrated introduction looks at the play's exceptionally beautiful and complex language and focuses on the figure of Juliet as being at its centre. Rene Weis discusses the plays's critical, stage and film history, including West Side Story and Baz Luhrmann's seminal film Romeo + Juliet. An authoritative edition from a leading scholar giving the reader a penetrating and wide-ranging insight into this ever popular play.
