Today we’ll concentrate on evidence of the hand of fate in Romeo and Juliet. The attached presentation provides examples of one such piece of evidence – Romeo’s premonition and the use of the word ‘stars’ to refer to the characters’ pre-determined path.
Today we explored some of Shakespeare’s very deliberate use of metaphor in Act 1, Scene 4. The resolution of this work was for the students to attempt writing a paragraph explaining the reference to the action of fate in one of Romeo’s statements. This should be completed for homework.
