Romeo and Juliet (New Casebooks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This imaginative selection of critical essays provides a range of contemporary approaches from psychoanalytical to cultural materialist and film theory. They demonstrate the fascinating plurality of recent critical approaches, and illuminate important aspects of the play.

Book News Annotation:

This volume presents critical essays on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet from contemporary thinkers. Contributions include, for example, Barbara Hodgdon on Baz Lurhmann's film version of the story, Joseph A. Porter on Mercutio's speech acts, and Julia Kristeva on Romeo and Juliet's love-hate relationship. The volume also includes a little-known practice piece written by Bertolt Brecht called The Servants.
