Romeo and Juliet

"They stumble that run fast"

by Michael Best © 1996


This introduction to the play was originally part of the course "Shakespeare II, Individual Studies" (English 366B) offered at the University of Victoria. Part of the material is based on a course prepared for the Open University of British Columbia.

This course module is made freely available for educational, non-profit use, so long as the author and the University of Victoria are duly acknowledged.
