Literature 1- Romeo and Juliet
“What light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!” Secondary I Literature has been engrossed in all things Shakespeare. Through in-class readings and performances, we have been submerged in the beauty of Romeo and Juliet. Students have explored the historical context of the Shakespearean age by researching and presenting on different aspects of life in Elizabethan England. They have written their own original sonnets and created individual art projects about Queen Mab. We were also treated to a live performance at the Wustenrot Theatre in Bratislava by the TNT Britain theatre group. Seeing the play brought to life on the stage was a true eye opener for the students as they could see how the actors interpreted and delivered Shakespeare’s words. This further inspired students to fully commit to their roles during in-class readings.
