Making ‘Romeo and Juliet’ New

  • Share on Tumblr

Every new edition of a Shakespeare play brings with it fresh insights, the work is dressed anew for our own times by a scholarly introduction, notes, and different emphases.

It was a great pleasure to welcome Professor Rene Weis of University College London to The Shakespeare Centre yesterday to speak on his new edition of Romeo and Juliet for the Arden Shakespeare.

His talk on the play was fizzing with knowledge and excitement. You can listen to what he had to say to me about his edition by clicking on the audio-post below.

You can hear Rene in conversation about the play via our webinar on Romeo and Juliet too, by clicking here.
