Key features include: ? an introduction considering when and how the play was written, addressing the language with which Shakespeare created his work, as well as the generic, literary and theatrical conventions at his disposal ? detailed examination and analysis of the individual text, focusing on its literary, technical and historical intricacies ? discussion of performance history and the critical reception of the work ? a 'Writing matters' section in every chapter, clearly linking the analysis of Shakespeare's language to your own writing strategies in coursework and examinations Written by world-class academics with both scholarly insight and outstanding teaching skills, each guide will empower you to read and write about Shakespeare with increased confidence and enthusiasm. How to find something new to say about this most familiar of Shakespeare's plays? Catherine Besley shows you how to build your understanding by starting with a focus on key speeches before looking at Shakespeare's sources and showing how his use of them can inform a critical appreciation of the play. She goes on to examine the exquisite poetry in the play and to unpick its complex rhetoric as well as examining key productions and adaptations such as the classic Baz Lurhmann film.

Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies and has provoked a rich diversity of interpretations. Definitively passionate, it is much more than the archetypal love story: the play tests the limits of tragedy and comedy, challenges gender roles and explores the nature of language. In this Reader's Guide, Gillian Woods: • surveys key critical responses to Romeo and Juliet, from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first century • plots a clear route through the vast array of debates, identifying chronological and thematic connections and explaining contexts • investigates major issues and approaches such as deconstruction, psychoanalytical criticism, feminism and queer theory • discusses film adaptations, including Baz Luhrmann's 1996 box-office hit William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. Authoritative and accessible, this invaluable Guide provides students, teachers and researchers with a panorama of the play's critical history in all its dynamic variety.
