In i Romeo and Juliet i Shakespeare creates a world of violence and generational conflict in which two young people fall in love and die because of that love The story is rather extraordinary in that the normal problems faced by young lovers are here so very large It is not simply that the families of Romeo and Juliet disapprove of the lover s affection for each other rather the Montagues and the Capulets are on opposite sides in a blood feud and are trying to kill each other on the streets of Verona Every time a member of one of the two families dies in the fight his relatives demand the blood of his killer Because of the feud if Romeo is discovered with Juliet by her family he will be killed Once Romeo is banished the only way that Juliet can avoid being married to someone else is to take a potion that apparently kills her so that she is burried with the bodies of her slain relatives In this violent death filled world the movement of the story from love at first sight to the union of the lovers in death seems almost inevitable br p What is so striking about this play is that despite its extraordinary setting one perhaps reflecting Elizabethan attitudes about hot blooded Italians it has become the quintessential story of young love Because most young lovers feel that they have to overcome giant obstacles in order to be together because they feel that they would rather die than be kept apart and especially because the language Shakespeare gives his young lovers is so exquisite allowing them to say to each other just what we would all say to a lover if we only knew how it is easy to respond to this play as if it were about all young lovers rather than about a particular couple in a very unusual world When the play was rewritten in the eighteen century as i The History and Fall of Caius Marius i the violent setting became that of a particularly discordant period in classical Rome when Leonard Berstein rewrote the play as i West Side Story i he chose the violent world of New York street gangs p, One of the greatest plays of all time the compelling tragedy of the tormented young prince of Denmark continues to capture the imaginations of modern audiences worldwide Confronted with evidence that his uncle murdered his father and with his mother s infidelity Hamlet must find a means of reconciling his longing for oblivion with his duty as avenger The ghost Hamlet s feigned madness Ophelia s death and burial the play within a play the closet scene in which Hamlet accuses his mother of complicity in murder and breathtaking swordplay are just some of the elements that make Hamlet an enduring masterpiece of the theater, Shakespeare s intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander Bad news is Hermia s father wants Demetrius for a son in law On the outside is Helena whose unreturned love burns hot for Demetrius Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena In the forest unbeknownst to the mortals Oberon and Titania King and Queen of the faeries are having a spat over a servant boy The plot twists up when Oberon s head mischief maker Puck runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking Throw in a group of labourers preparing a play for the Duke s wedding one of whom is given a donkey s head and Titania for a lover by Puck and the complications become fantastically funny br br b Each Folger Shakespeare Library edition includes b br Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play br Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play br Scene by scene plot summaries br A key to famous lines and phrases br An introduction to reading Shakespeare s language br An essay by an outstanding scholar providing a modern perspective on the play br Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library s vast holdings of rare books br Essay by Catherine Belsey br The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D C is home to the world s largest collection of Shakespeare s printed works and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe In addition to exhibitions open to the public throughout the year the Folger offers a full calendar of performances and programs, Set in a topsy turvy world like a holiday revel this comedy devises a romantic plot around separated twins misplaced passions and mistaken identity Juxtaposed to it is the satirical story of a self deluded steward who dreams of becoming Count Malvolio only to receive his comeuppance at the hands of the merrymakers he wishes to suppress The two plots combine to create a farce touched with melancholy mixed throughout with seductively beautiful explorations on the themes of love and time and the play ends not with laughter but with a clown s sad song
