Summary:
The original text of Romeo and Juliet differs strikingly from the play we know today. The first edition - or First Quarto - published in 1597 has a more fluid progression, some entirely different speeches, and a speedier climax. In addition, there are hundreds of smaller variants. The availability of this text thus increases the range of interpretations open to actors, directors, critics and students.
