Romeo and Juliet Study Guide

Historical Context

Romeo and Juliet was written around the year 1595 by the man many consider to be the best writer in the history of English. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon; a small town northwest of London, England. He wrote many unforgettable dramas, both comedies and tragedies, and also wrote poetry in sonnet form. In many ways, little is known about the man. There are even those who believe that he did not write the plays due to his relatively humble background and lack of higher education.
