by Harold Bloom

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
35 Min.


This is the first lecture from the Modern Scholar course Shakespeare: The Seven Major Tragedies taught by Professor Harold Bloom.

In this audio lecture provided as part of the Modern Scholar Series, noted author and literary critic Harold Bloom provides his unparalleled analysis of Shakespeare's tragic love story. Focusing his attenion squarely on the role Juliet plays in the play, Bloom argues that it is her characterization and dialogue that marks the beginning of Shakespeare's maturity as an artist. In this tale we see what may be the definitive portrait of a woman in love, and indeed, Juliet's ability to find words for complicated emotions is a major reason Romeo and Juliet have become the romantic ideal.
