I apologise for not having any substantial writing this week…. but here’s a little Juliet to make up for it??? This soliloquy occurs before all the um…. bad stuff …starts happening to her. In this speech, she’s waiting for her nurse to return home after delivering the news to Romeo that he’d better prepare himself for a wedding!
On re-reading Romeo and Juliet as an adult, I am taken with how manipulative, decisive, and strong Juliet is. We may feel that this play is ‘overdone’, but I maintain that it is incredible and filled with endless treasures.
Of course, no video would be complete without a little visit from Jane!
I’ll be back next week to tell you about our trip to Amsterdam.
