My 9th graders are getting the hang of this blogging thing. I’ve so many examples of blogs from Romeo and Juliet, here’s one that deserves a wider audience. Give her a “like” by visiting her site if you have time.
By the end of act three, the play is clearly developing into the tragedy it was meant to be. Mercutio and Tybalt have been killed, Romeo has been banished, and Juliet is dealing with a large amount of grief and is now being forced to marry Paris. It’s exciting to see all of the drama that these young teens have gone through in a matter of just a few days. However, this is confusing at the same time. How could all of this really happen in a couple of days? This feels a bit unrealistic to me. I don’t quite understand the actions of Lady Capulet either. She is Juliet’s mother, so shouldn’t she be helping Juliet through her grief and not forcing her into another by making her marry Paris? I am certainly glad I have a mother who helps and supports me unlike Juliet’s mother.
