The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to students worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance. The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems. Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations. This second edition of Romeo and Juliet retains the text prepared by G. Blakemore Evans, together with his introduction and detailed textual notes. A thorough stage history features illustrations and photographs of notable performances from the eighteenth century onwards while a lucid commentary alerts the reader to the difficulties of language, thought and staging. For this second edition, Thomas Moisan has added a new introductory section which focuses on recent scholarly criticism and contemporary productions of the play. The reading list has also been revised and updated.

Is this the one with the pink cover? I read this before and I also listened to the audio book and it was amazing. I love the ending as well

I don't quite understand what all the praise for this piece is about. I find the love between Romeo and Juliet, for lack of a better word, stupid. They do stupid things, they make stupid choices and die stupid deaths,.

This book is hard to read but very good. It is actually very short when you read into it. I suggest using sparknotes to read it. It really helps. Dont use sparknotes if you dont want to understand the "strange" parts if yah know what im saying
