SIGNATURE SHAKESPEARE SERIES
Featuring remarkable laser-cut paper designs throughout, this new series offers stunning presentations of Shakespeare''s plays, complete with scholarship, commentary, notes, and illustrated essays about Shakespeare''s language and performances of the play. It''s a keepsake package worthy of the greatest, and most loved, playwright in the English language.
 
Each volume in the Signature Shakespeare series includes:
- Illustration: Original paper-cuts, in the form of laser tip-ins and scans, beautifully illustrate each play. Paintings and photographs add depth to front and back matter.
- Scholarship: Premier scholars introduce each play with contemporary scholarship. An essay on editing the text provides an in-depth look at the quartos and folios used in the edition.
- Context: Essays on Shakespeare''s England, language, and life, along with essays on performing Shakespeare and significant performances, frame the play in both historical and theatrical context for readers. A look at the lasting influence of the play on music, art, film, and dance creates an interdisciplinary framework with which to approach the play.
- Notes: Through one-word margin definitions, facing-page glosses, and longer end notes after each play, the series'' approach to notes pulls readers away from the text fewer times while providing them with more information and comprehensive analysis.
- Further Reading - An annotated bibliography of titles, hand-selected by the introduction author, takes readers beyond the edition for further reading.
 
Romeo and Juliet--Shakespeare''s timeless tale of star-crossed lovers who “Do with their death bury their parents'' strife”--is one of the first two works in the Signature Shakespeare series. It includes contextualizing essays and timelines by scholar Mario DiGangi, in collaboration with one of the world''s foremost Shakespeare authorities, David Scott Kastan of Columbia University.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RSC Edition is the Best I'll assume most know the Shakespearean tragedy of Romeo & Juliet ~ My recommendation is for the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) editions of the plays. I bought my first RSC edition in Stratford England having just seen Merchant of Venice. I truly appreciated the effort put forth in accurately presenting the play. Great additional information to enhance the reading and understanding of the play as well as the times when written. All put together with some vintage photos in a great binding. Highly recommended edition- RSC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WASAIII??? This ain' t bad Coles Editorial Board has found written something unique to William Shakespeares "Romeo and Juliet". Perhaps as a modern society our understanding of Shakeperare seems rare. This book has turned Shakespeares classic story into an understandable drama. Good.
