Few works of Shakespeare are as instantly recognizable as Romeo and Juliet, one of his earliest tragedies and a play that has gone on to enthrall readers and theatergoers ever since it was written in 1597. In this presentation, Joseph Luzzi, professor of literature at Bard College, takes a fresh look at this moving work, which ranks as one of the greatest love stories of all time and has been adapted into countless films and other art forms over the centuries.

Luzzi pays particular attention to Shakespeare’s original use of language, especially his ability to capture the inner lives of his characters with observations on human nature that have contributed to his status as arguably the greatest writer in the history of English literature.
