Act 5 Who to blame?

9 Mar

I don’t really know who to blame form the death of Romeo and Juliet. The Friar did his job sending the message to Romeo and the mailman  didn’t get it to him. The parents  didn’t even know about the marriage or  what was going on with their kids. But if I had to choose I would probably blame the parents. The feud between the families was all to blame.

Act 3 Advice

Advice to Romeo..

 

Dear Romeo,

Ho! It is safe to say thee in great danger. Thou have to leave Verona. Then when the Prince hath forgotten the killings that thee have done, thou may return. This may take a while, as I said, but thou can not go back. Thou would be put to death on the spot, just like the Prince told thee. Thou can’t stay hither either, they will soon find thee. Juliet will be okay, for thou and her could meet here sometimes, maybe. Thee can’t keep sneaking around though. Stay hidden between the trees. Run hence, far hence. Good luck!

Act 2 From Friar’s Point

10 Feb

When Romeo came to talk to me today I was completely certain he was talking about Rosaline, but then he figured it out that there was someone new!  First, my thought was this wouldn’t be good with the family feud, it could never be. But then I thought it is a brilliant idea! Marrying a Montague and a Capulet together would put a stop to all madness and bring everyone together. I finally agree to marry the two and hope for the best.

 Lord Montague Lord Capulet

Act 1

8 Feb

I think Romeo just going up to Juliet and kissing her is kind of hard to believe because normally people just don’t walk right up to you and just kiss you before even knowing each other like they did. But I do think love at first sight can happen and Romeo told Juliet he wanted to kiss her so it kinda made sense.

 

First Thoughts

6 Feb

What are your first thoughts? Why do you think we still study Romeo?

I think we still study Romeo and Juliet today because it really has that feeling where you can connect to the characters. This play is very important to a whole bunch of people because it kind of represents Valentine’s Day with the falling in love and relationship stuff like that. Shakespeare has been going around for over 100 years! I don’t really know why we still go over everything today, maybe so we can find out a little more information each time someone studies.

My first thoughts on the play Romeo and Juliet was having to do with love. Romeo meeting Juliet and having trouble to fall in love, then they do and it’s happily ever after. But my first thoughts about Shakespeare were really just wanting to figure out who he was. I’ve heard his name a billion times before and never really put much thought into doing some research. I’m very excited to read the story and see the movie.
