So as anticipated we aren’t getting through all of Act I today, no worries. We’ll finish it Monday and then have the quiz on Tuesday of next week. Tomorrow you will still have the Shakespeare Quiz so be ready as mentioned.
As we get through a few more scenes in Act I we learn that Juliet’s mother and the nurse think she should marry County Paris, but she’s too young. The nurse makes a dirty joke about her falling.
The guys (Romeo and co.) are busy trying to sneak into the party. Romeo is being all whiny because of his love for Rosaline (who isn’t interested because she’s joining the clergy). Soon our two lovers will meet and Rosaline will be ancient history.
So again…Friday the 21st–Quiz on Shakespeare
Tuesday the 25th–Quiz on Act I.
My hope is to be starting Act III by the end of next week. We’re on a good pace and our readers are doing well. Remember, I’ll be rotating parts after each Act so everyone gets a chance.
