Through exciting and unconventional approaches, including critical/historical, printing/publishing and performance studies, this study mines Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to produce new insights into the early modern family, the individual, and society in the context of early modern capitalism. Inspired by recent work in cultural materialism and the material book, it also foregrounds the ways in which the contexts and the text itself become available to the reader today. The opening material on critical/historical approaches focuses on the way that readers have frequently read and played the text to explore issues that cluster around the family, marriage, gender and sexuality. Chapter two, on the ways that actors today inhabit character and create behaviour, provides intertextual comment on acting in the early modern period, and the connections between acting and social behaviour that inform self-image and the performance of identity both then and now. The third chapter on printing/publishing approaches to the text offers a detective story about the differences between Quarto One and Quarto Two, that focuses on the curious appearance in Quarto Two of material related to the law at word, phrase, line and scene level. The next three chapters integrate a close study of the language of the play to negotiate its potential significance for the present in the areas of: Family, Marriage, Gender and Sexuality; Identity, Individualism and Humanism; and the Law, Religion and Medicine. Among the startling aspects of this book are that it: - takes the part of Juliet far more seriously than other criticism has tended to do, attributing to her agency and aspects of character that develop the part suddenly from girl to woman; - recognizes the way the play explores early modern identity, becoming a handbook for individualism and humanism in the private domestic setting of early capitalism; and - brings to light the least recognized element in the play at the moment, its demonstration of the emerging structures of state power, governance by law, the introduction of surveillance, detection and witness, and the formation of what we now call the 'subject'. The volume includes on DVD a scholarly edition with commentary of the text of Romeo & Juliet, which re-instates many of the original early modern versions of the play.

FROM THE DESK OF JULIET BLANCHARD I thought working in our family firm would finally make my father show some interest in me. He's always been distant toward me–possibly because I might not be his child? (I found an incriminating photo of my long-presumed-dead mother with a man I resemble.)

William Shakespeare, thief and genius. "Borrowing" other people's stories, he used his unparalleled way with words to craft those stories into timeless plays. And in those plays, he hid countless secrets: references to mythology, popular music, and secret instructions for his actors. This collection of essays by author and actor David Blixt explores every secret hidden in Shakespeare's most-read play, Romeo & Juliet, revealing everything from Shakespeare's source material to his performance tips to his actors. From The Juliet Trap to The Window Scene, Blixt turns every misconception about the play on its head, returning to the text to find great humor, and through that humor, greater tragedy. He also posits a never-before-heard origin to the famous Capulet-Montague feud, an idea hidden in the text that sparked Blixt's acclaimed Star-Cross'd series of novels.

Now, together, Harper and Millie return to Charleston to find the man who may hold the answers they seek . . . and a chance at the dress shop they've both dreamed of.

Miss Juliet Lambert has waited her entire life for her debut into society, for she knows her worth as the daughter of a baron. Although other women speak of love, Juliet only desires a man who realizes her beauty and can provide her with the lavish things she deserves.Daniel Haskins has been employed at Scarlett Hall since he was a boy of twelve, and he has loved Miss Juliet from the moment he first saw her. Although he understands he must keep his love for her hidden, he wants nothing more than to please the beautiful woman who always wears a mischievous smile.When Juliet injures her ankle in a fall, she is forced to miss the season and remain at home, much to her chagrin. Her mother insists that she considers allowing one Lord Parsons to call, and although he is handsome and wealthy, he is much too arrogant for Juliet's liking. In order to vent out her frustrations on the unfairness of life, Juliet finds solace speaking with Daniel, the stable boy.As the weeks pass, Juliet begins to see Daniel not as a man who can provide her with the finest of dresses but rather the love she needs in her heart. And although Daniel would wish nothing more than to be with her, he knows their relationship would surely be forbidden by her mother. As Lord Parsons' calls become more frequent, a dark secret lingers over Scarlett Hall, and the voice of shadow past may force Juliet into the very arms of the man she does not love.Voices of Shadows Past is the third book in the Secrets of Scarlett Hall series. It can be read as a stand-alone novel but is best enjoyed after reading book one Whispers of Light and book two Echoes of the Heart. Filled with clean romance, adventure, and a dash of mystery-and perhaps a bit of mischievousness-Voices of Shadows Past promises to be a page-turner.
