Students read Act 1.1 lines 158–202, in which Romeo tells Benvolio that he is in love with someone who does not love him in return, and analyze how Shakespeare introduces Romeo in this scene. Prior to reading, students view a clip of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, which introduces major characters and depicts the violence between the Montagues and the Capulets.
