Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the most read and beloved of all stage works. Now the most extensively annotated version of the play to date makes it completely accessible to readers in the twenty-first century. The new edition is a rich resource for students, teachers, and the general reader. Eminent linguist and translator Burton Raffel offers generous help with vocabulary and usage of Elizabethan English, pronunciation, prosody, and alternative readings of phrases and lines. His on-page annotations provide readers with the tools they need to comprehend the play and begin to explore its many possible interpretations. This version of Romeo and Juliet is unparalleled for its thoroughness and adherence to sound linguistic principles. In his introduction, Raffel provides historical and social contexts that increase the reader’s understanding of the play. And in a concluding essay, Harold Bloom argues that Romeo and Juliet is unmatched in the world’s literature “as a vision of an uncompromising love that perishes of its own idealism and intensity.”

This annotated edition of The Tragedie of Romeo and Juliet provides two valuable textual services to its readers. It restores the language of Shakespeare to that of the First Folio of 1623, with its idiosyncratic but illuminating spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. It also provides footnotes and annotations that are candid and plainspoken in their accounting of Shakespeare’s themes, especially his frequent if oft-overlooked and underappreciated bawdy puns and allusions. An extensive introduction is included, as are appendices detailing typographical errors, stage directions, emended lineations and character tags from the First Folio.

Among teenagers Romeo and Juliet appears to be the most popular of the Shakespeare tragedies. Perhaps this is because of the age of the protagonists. I suspect it is something far deeper than that, however. The depth of passion evinced by both Romeo and Juliet is familiar to most adolescents, and their isolation from the world of adults is also recognized by contemporary teens. Capulet’s ranting when dealing with Juliet’s nascent independence is no doubt familiar to today’s sons and daughters. Thus, it seems Shakespeare continues to speak a universal language; this, I believe, accounts for the continued popularity of the work.

Die drei Symptome eines miserablen Jobs

eine Fabel für Manager (und ihre Mitarbeiter)

Egal ob Tellerwäscher, Investmentbanker oder leitender Angestellte, jede Arbeit kann unglücklich machen. Auch wenn die Karriere noch so gut geplant und den eigenen Interessen und Fähigkeiten entsprechend gewählt wurde, quälen sich viele Menschen jeden Morgen zur Arbeit um abends noch frustrierter nach Hause zu kommen. Bestseller Autor und Business-Guru Patrick Lencioni erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte Brian Baileys, eines pensionierten Vorstandsvorsitzenden auf der Suche nach dem Sinn in seiner Arbeit und seinem Leben. -------- Als alle Mitarbeiter Platz genommen hatten, begann Brian Bailey. Er entschied sich, direkt auf den Punkt zu kommen, der ihm unter den Nägeln brannte: "Handzeichen bitte. Wer von Ihnen mag seinen Job?" Keine Reaktion. Die Mitarbeiter sahen ihn an, als hätte er russisch mit ihnen geredet. "Also gut", Brian grinste. "Dann muss ich wohl deutlicher werden. Okay, wie wär's damit: Wer findet die Aussicht, zur Arbeit zu gehen, schön? Wer hat gute Laune, wenn er hier ankommt?" Brian hätte genauso gut fragen können, ob sie gern ausgepeitscht werden wollten. Keine Hand ging hoch, der eine oder die andere lachte laut. -------- Auf einer ungewöhnlichen Reise, die ihn vom Vorstandszimmer eines angesehenen Unternehmens zu den Skipisten am Lake Tahoe und schließlich zur Bestellannahme einer Fastfood Kette führt, entlarvt Brian die drei Symptome, die jede Arbeit zu einer miserablen Angelegenheit machen können (Nichtmessbarkeit, Anonymität und Irrelevanz) und bietet Managern und Angestellten eine Lösung um sie einzudämmen. So versucht er Investmentbanker davon zu überzeugen, dass Arbeitszufriedenheit wichtig ist oder er motiviert den Pizzalieferanten freundlicher zu seinen Kunden zu sein. Sowohl für den Manager, der versucht Wettbewerbsvorteile zu schaffen und seine Angestellten zu motivieren, als auch für den Mitarbeiter, der nach persönlicher Erfüllung in seiner Arbeit sucht, bietet das Buch unmittelbare Linderung - und Hoffnung.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...as his own" (Dowden). For the references to the poet's age.in the Sonnets, see p. 41 above. 3. Furrows. Cf. Sonn. 2 above, and Rich. III. i. 3. 229. 4. Expiate. Bring to an end. Cf. Rich. III. iii. 3. 23: "Make haste; the hour of death is expiate." Here, as there, Steevens conjectures "expirate," which White and Hudson adopt. Surely there is no need of coining a word to replace one which S. twice uses and which can be plausibly explained. Malone quotes Chapman's Byron's Conspiracie, in which an old courtier speaks of himself as " A poor and expiate humour of the court." XXIII 1. Vnperfect. Used by S. only here; but unperfectness occurs in Oth. ii. 3. 298. Imperfect we find in Sonn. 43. 11 and elsewhere, and imperfection six times in the plays. On the present passage, cf. Cor. v. 3. 40: --"Like a dull actor now, I have forgot my part, and I am out, Even to a full disgrace." 2. Besides. For the prepositional use, cf. T. N, iv. 2. 92: "Alas, sir, how fell you besides your five wits?" 3. Replete with too much rage. The rage overcoming self-control. 5. For fear of trust. Fearing to trust myself. Schmidt makes it = " doubting of being trusted;" but the context clearly confirms the explanation I have given. Dowden calls attention to the construction of the first eight lines, 5, 6 referring to 1, 2, and 7, 8, to 3. 4 6. Ceremony. Hudson says that the word "is here used as a trisyllable, as if spelt cer'mony;" but how he would scan the verse I cannot imagine. The word is clearly a quadrisyllable, as almost always in S. 9. Books. Sewell reads " looks;" but the old reading is supported by 13 below. The books, as Dowden remarks, are probably the manuscript books in which the poet writes his sonnets. 12. That tongue. Probably = any tongue, however eloquent, ...
