This lesson is a close reading of Act 3.2.1–31, Juliet’s speech while she waits for Romeo, before she has found out that Romeo killed her cousin Tybalt. The lesson will ask students to draw a comparison between a close reading of this passage and Marc Chagall’s painting Romeo and Juliet (link below), with a focus on structural choices and the effects they create.
