Romeo And Juliet: Shakespeare at Stratford Series

by Russell Jackson

"Dr. Jackson sees Romeo and Juliet as working through a series of dilemmas deriving their potency from how the vividness and poetic force of the characters is represented on stage. In Verona, the emphasis may be on elegance or violence, with the southern locale stressed, ignored, or radically deromanticized. The portrayal of the two households sets up the context for the ensuing action: how are the Capulets played? Why has the role of Mercurio become increasingly dark and sardonic? But crucially are the lovers played as adolescents or idealized? If the Juliet is convincingly youthful, has she also the technique to succeed in the role? How can an actor deal with Romeo's moody changeability? This masterful study opens out the wide range of interpretations offered by a much-loved and studied play."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
