The first of five essays about love in the work of Shakespeare. The author and critic Margaret Drabble explores how our concepts of love and humanity have been deepened by the power of Shakespeare's poetry and how his many and varied versions of love continue to shape our imaginations. From the first love and love at first sight shared by the teenage Romeo and Juliet to the all consuming last love of the ageing Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare's understanding of love in all its guises remains unparalleled.

Writer Margaret Drabble explores how Shakespeare has deepened our concept of love.
