FC: Romeo & Juliet the proluge
1: What things are introduced during the first prologue? Why do you think Shakespeare chose to tell us what he did in the first prologue? | In the first prologue it say this “two households both alike in dignity” he says this probably because these people are both the same pretty much and then later on we found out that they fight for no good reason so you think that they would not fight but be friends instead because they have that much in common
2: Setting doesn’t just include the location. It also includes the time, the circumstances of the characters, the social structure, and many other issues. summarize the setting of this story as outlined by the prologue | The setting of the story is in Verona he probably chose this setting because maybe back then it would be a rich town or area. These families are both the same in most ways. Both of these hating family’s have no clue why they are fighting but they still fight because their parents fought and its gone on for generation
3: Choose three words or phrases that you encountered or seemed confusing or difficult. Explain what they mean. | 1. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, so it means They have hated each other for generations, and they don’t even know why, but now new fights are about to break out. 2.From forth the fatal loins of these two foes which means Fatal loins – the parents of Romeo and Juliet 3. Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife. Which means They fail to convince their parents to give up the feuding even by marrying (misadventured piteous overthrows) but only in their death do they succeed

61: 1.Romeo and Juilet by shakspear. This is defintly a romance it is obviouse becuase these two people are despertly in love even though there love is forbbiden becuase thier families are sworn enimies. Myu favorite part of the play would e the nurse she is very funny and the friear lawrence. i dont like how shakspera makes Juilet and Romeo so sarcastic and over dramtic. I would rate this play a three becuase it is over dramtic in some areas and is very funny in other areas too. this would be okay to read depends on the reader and what they like.
