The Oxford Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet is the iconic tragedy through which many people first encounter Shakespeare, and yet returning to the play as an adult can be a far more rewarding experience. How perfectly he captured that mixture of idealism and passion in youth, from Tybalt’s fury to Romeo’s protestations of eternal love. With a vast influence on theatre, literature and film, its depiction of young, star-crossed lovers has few rivals.
