This edition of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet reprints the Bevington edition of the play accompanied by six sets of thematically arranged primary documents and illustrations designed to fit many different approaches to Shakespeare's play and the early modern culture out of which the play emerges. The documents contextualize the social relationships among men in Shakespeare's time, violence in Elizabethan society, views of love and the Petrarchan paradigm, spiritual life, family in Elizabethan society, and ideas about astrology, medicine, and death.
