ROMEO AND JULIET- William Shakespeare. All explained, and with comments. For the XXIst Century readers.
In "Romeo and Juliet" Shakespeare subtly depicts the very face of absurdity. Though he always composes the circumstances within his plays so that they quite make sense, he also shows the reality of facts with injust and sudden end, which lack a true purpose and reject any further justification. Claudia Daneu has explained and commented the original Shakespeare´s text (edited by Howard Staunton) with the utmost carefulness. Unless every symbolical expression, metaphor, joke, ironical allusion, intra-textual or extra-textual reference, is closely studied and cleared up in its deepest meaning, Shakespeare´s genuine aim will never be understood. The present work invites the readers to approach Shakespeare´s world, to admire it in its priceless value, and to enjoy it beyond the bonds of literature. Claudia Daneu has also translated into Spanish, explained and commented, Shakespeare´s "Romeo and Juliet" and "Antony and Cleopatra".
