Wednesday, Sept. 7th

After the introduction to the course, we started our first unit on Romeo and Juliet.  It is a challenging text, but we shall take it step by step.  We are currently working on the script of the “ancient grudge” that lead to the hostilities between the Capulets and the Montagues.

For now, write out the argument you and your partner made up in class.  We will be translating this to Shakespearean English in stages.  You do NOT have to change every word of your dialogue.  Step one is to change only the words YOU to THOU, and YOUR to thy/thine. Add “-est” to the ending of verbs used with THOU and “eth” to the ending of verbs used with HE/SHE.  We will add to this next class.

It was great to meet you all today!
