Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English Literature, University of Sussex.

The Wordsworth Classics' Shakespeare Series presents a newly-edited sequence of William Shakespeare's works. The textual editing takes account of recent scholarship while giving the material a careful reappraisal.

Romeo and Juliet is the world's most famous drama of tragic young love. Defying the feud which divides their families, Romeo and Juliet enjoy the fleeting rapture of courtship, marriage and sexual fulfilment; but a combination of old animosities and new coincidences brings them to suicidal deaths.

This play offers a rich mixture of romantic lyricism, bawdy comedy, intimate harmony and sudden violence. Long successful in the theatre, it has also generated numerous operas, ballets and films; and these have helped to make Romeo and Juliet perennially topical.

Descriere

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
'A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life'This edition provides a clear and accessible introduction to Shakespeare's enduring tale of ill-fated lovers. Hannah August pays particular attention to the dramatic function of the famous prologue and the significance of the play's ending. August also explores ways of reading the play as a text that queries rather than validates the tenets of heterosexual romantic love, proving that at multiple points throughout the play's four-hundred-years-plus stage history, Verona has been more queer than the prevailing view of Romeo and Juliet as a core text of heterosexual love might lead us to believe. It includes a substantial section which addresses the play's early modern production and reception history in both print and performance, as well as providing an overview of later performance traditions drawing on up-to-date examples of key productions.The New Oxford Shakespeare offers authoritative editions of Shakespeare's works with introductory materials designed to encourage new interpretations of the plays and poems. Using the text from the landmark The New Oxford Shakespeare Complete Works: Modern Critical Edition, these volumes offer readers the latest thinking on the authentic texts (collated from all surviving original versions of Shakespeare's work) alongside innovative introductions from leading scholars. The texts are accompanied by a comprehensive set of critical apparatus to give readers the best resources to help understand and enjoy Shakespeare's work.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Notă biografică

William Shakespeare wurde im Jahr 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon geboren und starb dort 1616. Er war ein englischer Dramatiker, Lyriker und Schauspieler.

Shakespeare wuchs in einer wohlhabenden Bürgerfamilie auf und besuchte vermutlich die Stratforder Lateinschule. Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete er eine Bauerntochter, mit der er drei Kinder bekam. Man vermutet, dass er von 1582 bis 1590 als Lehrer arbeitete. Es gibt keine Anhaltspunkte dafür, dass Shakespeare eine Universität besucht hat.

Ab 1592 ist bekannt, dass Shakespeare Mitglied der führenden Theatergruppe Londons war, für die er auch eigene Stücke schrieb. Es entstanden u.a. die Königsdramen und die Komödien "Der Widerspenstigen Zähmung", "Ein Sommernachtstraum" und "Viel Lärm um nichts". "Romeo und Julia', eine der berühmtesten Liebestragödien der Weltliteratur, entstammt wohl dem Jahr 1598. Nach der Jahrhundertwende schuf Shakespeare u.a. die Tragödien "Hamlet", "Othello" und "Macbeth"

Als Teilhaber des Londoner Globe Theatre erwarb sich Shakespeare Vermögen und Einfluss. Seine Truppe "Lord Chamberlain's Men" trat öfter auch am Hof der Königin Elisabeth auf.

Mit 46 Jahren kehrte Shakespeare wohlhabend nach Stratford zurück und verbrachte dort seine letzten Lebensjahre, in denen er noch öfters nach London reiste und auch weitere Theaterstücke produzierte.

William Shakespeare starb 1616 im Alter von 52 Jahren in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Recenzii

'Sometimes, Romeo and Juliet's very familiarity makes it surprisingly difficult to read, to teach, and to perform. Hester Lees-Jeffries' wonderful introduction refreshes its lyric and emotional possibilities. She combines empathy with analysis, uncovering a play that is at once deeply rooted in Elizabethan poetry and in the ongoing psychology of ideas about love, youth, and tragedy. I felt she was giving us this most famous of plays anew.' Emma Smith, University of Oxford
'Hester Lees-Jeffries' introduction is as accessible as it is wide-ranging and profoundly learned. It takes the reader on a journey through key themes and the play's long and complex performance history, which includes opera, musicals, and ballet. The scholarship and sensibility are up-to-the-minute and the writing, while not pulling any punches where they are deserved, is profoundly attuned to the play's own lyricism and tenderness. With a final section dedicated to productions screened during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a landmark edition for a new generation of readers.' Pascale Aebischer, University of Exeter
'In popular imagination Romeo and Juliet stands out as a tower among Shakespeare's plays, thanks to its secure place in school curricula, its famous speeches and scenes, its rich production history, and the frequency with which it has been turned into operas, ballets, and films. Lees-Jeffries' new introduction adjusts this splendid isolation by platting the play's connections round about: with romantic poems of the 1590s, with scripts that Shakespeare was writing at the same time, with actors who likely first played the roles, with changing ideas about marriage in the period, with dueling practices, with sexuality and body-language, and with reimaginings of the play across more than four centuries and in multiple media. Lees-Jeffries offers not only a sympathetic and wide-ranging introduction to Romeo and Juliet but a concise history of performance practices and social history in Shakespeare's time.' Bruce R. Smith, University of Southern California
