Item description for Romeo and Juliet (Arden Shakespeare: Second Series) by William Shakespeare...

Brian Gibbons is the General Editor of the New Cambridge Shakespeare and Professor of English Literature at the University of Münster. His other works on Shakespeare include a book, Shakespeare and Multiplicity, an edition of Measure for Measure for the New Cambridge Shakespeare, and an essay entitled "Doubles and Likenesses-with-difference: The Comedy of Errors and The Winter's Tale". He also served as General Editor for the New Mermaid Anthology of plays, and has written extensively on Elizabethan and Jacobean theater.

The editors' introduction addresses what is known about the original writing of the play and its evolution through seven editions.  Historical context, cultural references, and literary sources are also covered.  A discussion of the play's themes, characters, and allusions precedes the text of Romeo and Juliet.  The text includes two appendices: The Queen Mab speech as it was printed in Q1, and extracts from Brooke's Romeus and Juliet, 1562.  Arden's edition also includes a guide to abbreviations and references used in the text. 

The Arden Shakespeare
has developed a reputation as the pre-eminent critical edition of Shakespeare for its exceptional scholarship, reflected in the thoroughness of each volume. An introduction comprehensively contextualizes the play, chronicling the history and culture that surrounded and influenced Shakespeare at the time of its writing and performance, and closely surveying critical approaches to the work. Detailed appendices address problems like dating and casting, and analyze the differing Quarto and Folio sources. A full commentary by one or more of the play's foremost contemporary scholars illuminates the text, glossing unfamiliar terms and drawing from an abundance of research and expertise to explain allusions and significant background information. Highly informative and accessible, Arden offers the fullest experience of Shakespeare available to a reader.
