Romeo and Juliet: Language and Writing Hardback
Part of the Arden Student Skills: Language and Writing series
Everyone knows the story of the star-crossed lovers but close attention to the language of the play can deepen and darken the legend.
As icons of passion, Romeo and Juliet reveal the recklessness, as well as the idealism, of desire in a violent world.
Catherine Belsey shows how you can tease out the play's subtle meanings and goes on to discuss key adaptations, including the classic Baz Lurhmann film.
