Freshmen: we started reading Romeo and Juliet! So far we’ve just been introduced to Romeo, his cousin Benvolio, Juliet, Juliet’s nurse, the parents and Tybalt — Juliet’s cousin.
We’ve already seen a major fight, learned that Romeo begins the book in love with a girl (who’s also a nun) named Rosaline and we’ve left off as Romeo and the other Montague boys are about to crash a party at Juliet’s.
We haven’t done any major classwork yet, but if you’ve missed class just make sure you’re up to speed on who these characters are and the basic plot so far.
Also, your superhero essays are due today.
