Click here to access a booklet of extracts to help students explore the context of Romeo and Juliet (click here for an editable Word version). It’s designed for students to engage with gradually, as they read the play and develop their knowledge of it. There are six parts:

  1. Civil Disorder
  2. Female Conduct
  3. Love and Marriage
  4. Parent-Child Relationships
  5. Dramatic Verse
  6. The Globe Theatre

Each part contains a hyperlink at the top to the original article from the British Library website and two questions for discussion.
