BBC Radio 4: „Romeo and Juliet“

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss William Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, writ­ten in the ear­ly 1590s after a series of his­to­ries and come­dies. His audi­ence already knew the sto­ry of the feud­ing Capulets and Mon­tagues in Verona and the fate of the young lovers from their rival hous­es, but not how Shake­speare would tell it and, with his poet­ry and plot­ting, he cre­at­ed a work so pow­er­ful and time­less that his play has shaped the way we talk of love, espe­cial­ly young love, ever since.
With Helen Hack­ett (Pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish Lit­er­a­ture at Uni­ver­si­ty Col­lege Lon­don), Paul Prescott (Pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish and The­atre at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia Merced), and Emma Smith (Pro­fes­sor of Shake­speare Stud­ies at Hert­ford Col­lege, Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford).“
