FC: Romeo and Juliet
2: 1st question What things are introduced in the first prologue? Why did Shakespeare choose to tell us what he did in the first prologue? Being introduced in the first prologue was the location in Verona and from what he says it sounds like this is an old place. (ancient grudge breaking). Their must have been lots of wars because it say's that the civil blood made the civil hands unclean. Two lovers die with a death marked hate. i think Shakespeare chose to tell what he did because doing so it set the tone and let the readers have a very detailed picture of the beggining of the book.

You walk along the wall of the street so you don't get waste thrown on you. It was safer walking aginst the wall.
6: Question 3 What is wrong with biting your thumb at someone? The reason not to "bite your thumb at someone" is because basically it means flipping them off or the middle finger in our day. It was an insult. | Question 4 What kind of character is Benvolio? and how is he antithetical to Tybalt? In this scene Benvolio is a peacemaker. He tries to stop the fights between the servants. Tybalt and Benvolio are "foils", which means they are near opposites. Tybalt looks for fights and is more angry and somewhat brash. | Question 5 What is the punishment for fighting on the streets as descreed by the prince? And how is that ironic? The punishment for fighting in the streets is that they be sentenced to death. This is ironic because in the end Romeo and Tybalt die in a fight. | ACT 1 SCENE 1
7: Question 6 Why did it bother the prince so bad that there was civil unrest in Verona? It bothered the prince because the two families had problems with each other. Had the not had problems Romeo and Juliet would have done anything to be with each other. He wishes the parents would end there stive.
8: Question 7 What was your first impression of Romeo? Why is he acting the way he is and how does this set him up for the rest of the play? My first impression of Romeo was that he made a horrible first impression with Juliet. I think that it surpised Juliet and he should have introduced himself in a different manner. He acts this way because he is still lovesick for Rosaline. It shows that he gets over Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet and when he is banished he is lovesick for her.
9: ACT 1 SCENE 2 Who is Paris? 1. He is the kinsman of the prince. He cares about Juliet and wishes to marry her.

He feels Juliet is to young to be married and want her to wait for two more summers aand then she can be a bride. He wants her to veiw Paris as a husband before the possible marriage.
10: ACT 1 SCENE 2 Question 3 How much power does Juliet have over her own life? What evidence do we see of this? She has some freedom to scout out possible husbands but as i said in the slide before Lord Capulet has the final decision in who she marries. But because she is from an aristocrat family she has not near as much freedom to roam the town as Romeo does. The evidence we see of this is the love Juliet shows for Romeo yet her parents want her to marry the rich Count Paris. Evidence showing her control is when the Nurse is telling a story and Lady capulet commands her to stop with out any success, Juliet stops the story with one word.
11: ACT 1 SCene 2 Question 4 Why does Romeo decide to crash the Capulet party? Does shakespeare provide any foreshadowing of future events? He decided to crash the party because he wasnt invited to it, and because the girl he truely loves will be there(Rosaline). Benvolio is sick of him not getting over Rosaline and says this would be a good opportunity to check out the other ladies and see what a crow amongst the swans she is. He does show some foreshadowing when the price(Romeo) threatens. He also does when Benvolio implies that Rosaline is ugly.
