    Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare( Book )
    20 editions published between 1935 and 2009 in English and held by 1,371 libraries worldwide
    "This edition of one of Shakespeare's most popular and attractive plays adopts a radically new approach to the text. It offers modernized texts not only of the 1599 'good' quarto, but also of the short, or b̀ad' quarto of 1597, regarding each as an independent witness to a 'mobile text' which changed in composition as Shakespeare wrote it. The longer and more familiar text, first printed in 1599, is presented along with a detailed explanatory commentary sensitive to both literary and theatrical issues. The earlier, shorter text is annotated only where it differs significantly from the later." "In addition to considering issues of performance, the introduction traces the Romeo and Juliet narrative from its origins in myth through its adaptation in the novella, a form which changed the story in subtle ways as it crossed national boundaries from Italy to France to England. It shows how Shakespeare's transmutation of the story reflects contemporary concerns with love, death, adolescence, and patriarchism, and illuminates his artistic experimentations with poetry, style, rhetoric, and dramatic form."--Jacket

    Understanding Romeo and Juliet : a student casebook to issues, sources, and historical documents by Alan Hager( Book )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 546 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
