Romeo receives the news of his banishment with hysterical passion, declaring exile to be death, life and selfhood to be inseparable from Juliet: then, seeing his act through her eyes, he fears he destroyed her in betraying himself. Romeo’s attempted suicide (III.iii) marks the nadir of his struggle with his own immaturity, but it proves at the same time to be an important point of self-discovery, a tempering. His tragic role may be clarified by contrast with that of Hamlet. Shakespeare withholds from Romeo the full experience of evil, the capacity for unbounded and ruthless self-analysis, the conscious acceptance of responsibility for society at large, with which he endows Hamlet. It is the special poignancy of Hamlet’s fate that he must confront it alone; for Romeo and Juliet there is consolation. And the exultation of sharing love as they undergo a shared fate.

anonymous asked:

I'd like to buy a copy of Romeo and Juliet! Can you please tell me what your favourite editions are?

Of course my dear!

If you want a heavily annotated edition with an exhaustive introduction, try the following:

If you are looking for an edition which will just help with basic vocabulary but which is not as overwhelming as the ones listed above, these may be good options:

If the main quality of your edition should be beauty, the options are of course numerous. Out of the editions I own, however, I find the following particularly exquisite:

Other editions worth mentioning are:

Anyway, these are the ones I either own or had the opportunity to read!

Mercutio is drawn magnetically to Tybalt as is Romeo to Juliet; his diversion of quarrel to himself is ironically comparable to a rival lover’s act of seduction. Indeed, to kill Tybalt seems a pleasure in itself, an honourable duty, is to emulate Romeo, and perhaps, more obscurely, satisfies envy of Romeo’s dedication to love. So, for Mercutio, Romeo’s disastrous intervention in the duel is precisely expressive of the malevolent power of Venus (though he never learns of Romeo’s marriage) and Romeo’s impulse for peace strikes him as unbearably ironic, agonizingly absurd. Their mutual incomprehension and mutual affection are given balletic clarity in the fatal action. Mercutio’s exultant dance as he fights Tybalt is broken by his friend’s dream-guided intervention; the moment’s hesitation gives death its chance. In an instant the whole course of the play alters decisively, and the scene which began with jesting about quarreling ends with the solemn bearing of a dead body from the stage.
