Romeo & Juliet time again!

19 Aug

It seems like just yesterday that I was madly collating Romeo & Juliet related resources for my Year 9 class.  As it turns out, it was about a year ago and thus it is now time to add to the collection of relevant related material.

I stumbled upon yet another Bassey Ikpi Spoken Word poem, this one is entitled ‘I Want to Kiss You‘.  I am hoping to be able to use it to illustrate the intensity and power of love, and to have students make connections between this text and the proclamations of the start-crossed lovers in Shakespeare’s play.
