Their love is honest and raw and all-consuming. But it's also dangerous. How much will they have to sacrifice before they can be together? In a masterful adaptation faithful to Shakespeare's original text, Gareth Hinds transports readers to the sun-washed streets and market squares of Shakespeare's Verona, vividly bringing the classic play to life on the printed page."--

    Understanding Romeo and Juliet : a student casebook to issues, sources, and historical documents by Alan Hager( Book )
    3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
    Offers a literary analysis of the classic play and includes discussions of its performance history, historical context, and modern interpretations. Hager (English, the State University of New York-Cortland) draws from both historical and contemporary materials to examine the classic play from many perspectives. He explores subjects as specific as copycat suicide based on fictional models, and as general as the nature of vendetta and group violence. Following a literary analysis, there are commentary and primary documents on its narrative backgrounds, and discussions of its performance history, historical context, and modern interpretations such as the recent film with Leonardo DiCaprio. The tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet has touched the hearts of young and old for nearly four hundred years. In this work, Alan Hager has compiled a rich collection of primary and contemporary materials ranging from information about the earliest performances of Romeo and Juliet to discussions of suicide in the 1990s. Designed to help students of the play, Understanding Romeo and Juliet highlights many different aspects of the play's context. Such aspects include a discussion about religions of love in the East and West, an examination of vendetta and collective violence, and an analysis of the play in the context of classical and medieval thought. Hager relates the work to issues as recent as the so-called Werther Syndrome (copycat suicide based on fictional models) and as remote as the notion of reincarnated love such as that of Rama and Sita in the Sanskrit epic Ramayana

    "The essays collected here derive in part from a series of lectures, "International Perspectives on Shakespeare," delivered at the University of Delaware during the academic year 1992-93 and partially supported by the Delaware Humanities Forum. By coincidence, three of the six scholars chose one of Shakespeare's most enduring and beloved tragedies, Romeo and Juliet, for their subject, but each approached the play from different points of view." "All the essays are published here for the first time in English. They offer new perspectives on Romeo and Juliet that all students of the play will find both illuminating and useful."--Jacket
