This major new edition of Shakespeare's greatest tragedy of love argues that the play is ultimately Juliet's. It's richly illustrated introduction looks at the play's exceptionally beautiful and complex language and focuses on the figure of Juliet as being at its center. Rene Weis also discusses the play's critical, stage, and film history, including "West Side Story" and Baz Lurhmann's seminal film adaptation." "This authoritative edition from a leading scholar gives the reader a penetrating and wide-ranging insight into this ever-popular play.

Like every Arden edition, it includes expertly edited play text and on-page commentary notes discussing issues of staging, theme, meaning, and Shakespeare's use of his sources to give the reader deep and engaging insights into the play.
