Act 1 scene 2

Captulet is talking to Paris about the party he is hosting and Paris asks once again for permission to propose to his daughter. Yet captulet will not allow this action because of juliets young age of only 13 years. Captulet then gives Paris a list of names for the invitations to the dinner party, Paris then sets off to find the servant and tells him to go find the people on the list. But the sevant can’t acctually read so when he bumps into a pair of going men in the street ( romeo and benvolio) he asks ” i pray sir can you read? ” romeo then reads out the letter. And in return ( without knowing that are montagues ) invites them along for the party seeing as though they seem rich. Benvolio then thinks this is  a good chance for Romeo, as his love Roseline will be there “compare her face with some that I shall show and i will make thee think thy swan a crow”.

This is your online portfolio

Hello and welcome to your personal online journal.

This platform has been created to enhance and enrich your learning at Mount Aspiring College. Its purpose is to provide you with an audience for your work (or work-in-progress) and you have the choice (by altering the ‘visibility’ of your posts) of whether your work on here is visible to the world, or only to your teacher.

Anything you post here in the public domain represents you and thus it’s important that you take care with that decision, but don’t be afraid to publish your work – as the feedback you may get from people at home, your peers and people from around the internet is only likely to enhance it.

Remember you can always access your class blog and all manner of resources through the Department of English main website – and by all means check out the sites of your peers to see what they’re getting up to as well.

If you have any questions for me, an excellent way to get an answer is to create a new private post on this journal. I am notified of any new posts and will reply swiftly to any queries.

Make the most of, and enjoy this new freedom in your English learning.
