"This work investigates Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet', one of the exemplary heteronormative love stories in Western culture. By engaging in new queer or pomosexual readings of Shakespeare's text, in relation to various adaptations, including 'Shakespeare in Love, Tromeo and Juliet ', and 'Get Real', this thesis challenges the traditional heteronormative reading of the play and argues that the play itself is queer. I argue that queering involves the non-normative and disruptive process(es) of reading texts. Adaptation, as a process of re-writing/disrupting a normative, 'originary,' historically situated text, is by definition a queer process. 'Romeo and Juliet' is a historical text that has been adapted, and thus queered, numerous times; Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' is itself an adaptation and therefore is always already a queer text. Thus, adaptations of Shakespeare's text are necessarily involved in queering the queer(ed): a pomosexual process that ultimately leads to the breakdown of the normative signification system."
Passionate, dramatic, secretive, and misunderstood, Romeo and Juliet represent adolescence in ways that strike a familiar chord for audiences today. My essay suggests, however, that these young characters likely appeared to Shakespeare's original audiences as troubling, unsettling figures, because Romeo and Juliet dismantles extant understandings of young people in Shakespeare's England. I argue that the play's staging evokes the guarded interiority of its young protagonists and establishes private spaces in which they constitute themselves as adolescent subjects. Private space, in turn, makes possible a private language: a kind of teen-speak recognizable today but among its earliest manifestations.
