In-depth critical discussions of William Shakespeare's play - Plus complimentary, unlimited online access to the full content of this great literary reference.

Given the reputation of Romeo and Juliet in literary circles, theatre programs, and the ordinary world, one would assume that every aspect of this iconic play had long ago been exhausted through relentless study and debate. It's longevity and our persistence with it, however, only enhance Romeo and Juliet's endurance as a piece of writing capable of endless scrutiny and limitless interpretation. 

The essays within this edition of Critical Insights are no exception to the innovate perspectives that Romeo and Juliet inspires. Inside, readers can expect to find essays on film adaptations, parodies, space, and artificiality,  as well as pluralistic approaches to the balcony scene, possibly the most famous scene in western literature.

Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of "Works Cited," along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources:
