Tragic Heroine

Searching for Juliet takes us from the Renaissance origin stories behind Shakespeare's child bride to enslaved people in the Caribbean, Italian fascists in Verona, and real-life lovers in Afghanistan. From the Victorian stage to 1960s cinema, Baz Luhrmann, and beyond. Drawing on rich cultural and historical sources and new research, Sophie Duncan shows us why Juliet is for now, for ever, for everyone.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
