Lecture no. 6 from the course: How to Read and Understand Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet—The Tools of Tragedy

Taught by Professor Marc C. Conner | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Continuing with Romeo and Juliet, observe how the famous balcony scene shifts the action and sense of the play toward a new kind of character-driven tragedy. In the play’s unfolding, note the role of the tension between fate and free will, and the arc of development whereby Juliet becomes a great tragic figure.
