The Life and Afterlives of Shakespeare's First Tragic Heroine
The enduring cultural legacy of Shakespeare's Juliet Capulet -- a history "as vital and provocative as the character herself" (Literary Review).
Romeo and Juliet may be the greatest love story ever told, but who is Juliet? Demure ingénue? Or dangerous Mediterranean madwoman? From tearstained copies of the First Folio to Civil War-era fanfiction, Shakespeare's star-crossed heroine has long captured our collective imagination.
Wry and inventive, Juliet is a tribute to fiction's most famous teenage girl who died young, but who lives forever.
