This five-week course provides an introduction to the great themes of Shakespeare's ever-popular play about the tragic passion of two young lovers. We will explore the remarkable transformation of Juliet from a submissive daughter to an independent young woman, the headstrong passion of Romeo that hastens his demise, the debate about how much the two tragic heroes were victims of fate, and much more.

'Romeo and Juliet' contains some violent scenes of sword-fighting where Mercutio, Tybalt and Paris are killed, which may be disturbing for younger students.
