We started the period by discussing Ovid’s story, Pyramus & Thisbe. As most of you correctly guessed, this was the basis for William Shakespeare’s play Romeo & Juliet. We discussed how this story, much like Apollo & Daphne, centers around the themes of change and transformation. We also discussed the tragic irony of the story: Through their deaths Pyramus and Thisbe create a world in which they could be together.
We spent the rest of the period preparing for our vocabulary exam on January 9, 2017. Here is the Padlet:
There is no homework tonight.
