Summary
"This much-anticipated Norton Critical Edition of Shakespeare's best-known play is based on the Second Quarto, widely agreed to be the most authoritative early text. By carefully selecting extracts from sources, scholars, and scriptwriters, Gordon McMullan tells a series of stories about Romeo and Juliet, globally and from their legend's origins to the present day. The Norton Critical Edition includes: Introductory materials and explanatory annotations by Gordon McMullan as well as numerous images. Sources and early rewritings by Luigi Da Porto, Matteo Bandello, Pierre Boaistuau, Kareen Klein, and Thomas Otway, among others. Critical readings and later rewritings spanning four centuries and including those by Stanley Wells, Wendy Wall, Dympna C. Callaghan, Jill L. Levenson, Niah Cusack, David Tennant, and Courtney Lehmann."--
