Looking at the Folio text edition of Shakespeare's The Tragedie of Romeo and Juliet is like seeing the play in a whole new light. Actors, directors and scholars are heralding the return of the Folio which brings the reader closer to the real Shakespeare by revealing his work in all of its original splendour. Available for the first time in modern reading fonts, The Tragedie of Romeo and Juliet can now be appreciated in its raw form, with the influences and interpretations of more than 400 years removed. The Folio text of this play, as well as much of Shakespeare's portfolio, has been painstakingly prepared and annotated by scholar Neil Freeman.
