Romeo and Juliet III: What’s in a name?

Start learning

What is this lesson is about?

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet.” 

This is the question which Juliet poses and which we’ll tackle today. Juliet longs to ignore Romeo’s name, because it’s his status as a Montague that means they can’t be together. Can the couple get around this challenge, can they make their love last despite their names?

In this lesson, we’ll look at the difficulty of expressing something transcendent in a world of restrictive names and labels. 

We’ll talk about:
• Finding individual spaces away from one’s community 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦
• Romeo and Juliet’s final legacy as statues in Verona 🗿🗿
