Romeo and Juliet is about the rebellion of the heart,” writes Simon Palfrey. “It taps into the desire, cherished by all of us, for a life less afraid, less timid, less, in a very basic way, predicted.”Despite its fame, Shakespeare’s great play about doomed young love has attracted less serious critical attention than it deserves. In this brilliant, provocative and entertaining new book, Palfrey, a leading Shakespearean scholar, seeks to put this right.
