Romeo and Juliet—Words, Words, Words

Lecture no. 5 from the course: How to Read and Understand Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet—Words, Words, Words

Taught by Professor Marc C. Conner | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Shakespeare’s primary tool as a playwright is words themselves as dramatic expressions of character and meaning. In Romeo and Juliet, see how Shakespeare ingeniously uses language to distinguish class and personality, and how he uses the poetic form of the sonnet in creating a sublime language of love.
