  • &&LB&&RNew Scholarship&&L/B&&R – Premiere scholars introduce each play with contemporary scholarship. An essay on editing the text provides an in-depth look at the quartos and folios used in the edition.
  • &&LB&&RContextualizing Essays&&L/B&&R – Essays on Shakespeare’s England, language, and life, along with essays on performing Shakespeare and significant performances frame the play in both historical and theatrical context for readers. A look at the lasting influence of the play on music, art, film, and dance creates an interdisciplinary framework with which to approach the play.
  • &&LB&&RBetter Notes&&L/B&&R – Through one-word margin definitions, facing-page glosses, and longer end notes after the play, our innovative approach to notes pulls readers away from the text fewer times while providing them with more information and comprehensive analysis.
  • &&LB&&RFurther Reading&&L/B&&R – An annotated bibliography of titles, hand-selected by the introduction author, takes readers beyond the edition for further reading.
&&L/DIV&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&RWhen &&LI&&RRomeo and Juliet&&L/I&&R was first performed, its two title characters would have seemed like very unlikely tragic heroes, since they possess no historical importance or political status. The editor, &&LSTRONG&&RMario DiGangi&&L/B&&R, restores the play to its original context, demonstrating in detail how Shakespeare elevated his teenage characters’ plight to make them the most famous tragic couple in literature.&&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
