Romeo and Juliet- An Essay Task

Following our study of Romeo and Juliet, you will now be working on constructing a literary essay during class time in response to the following question:

Explain how Shakespeare explores the idea of “fate” in Romeo and Juliet through his use of language and/or literary devices. 


Your essay should follow a logical structure (think about the hamburger essay we have discussed).

You should aim to include at least two examples for each language and/or literature device you explain.

If you need a place to start with your paragraphs, look back at your notes about SEXY paragraphs. You do not have to follow this structure but you do need to ensure your paragraphs are organized and logical to ensure the delivery of your ideas is clear and easy to understand.
