As one of the world's greatest love stories Romeo and Juliet continues to excite new theatre-goers, readers and film-goers. Its depiction of tragic lovers strikes a chord in each generation of young people, and seems to speak in their own idiom.

This collection of contemporary essays raises topical debates about the nature of love conventions, as well as offering new insights into Shakespeare's text.
