FC: ROMEO AND JULIET STUDY NOTES
1: PROLOGUE QUESTIONS
2: Shakespeare told us the plot of the story because he wanted to get more into the fight and did not want to have them wonder what the fight was for . | The story is set mainly in the streets of the city of Verona, in Italy. It happens in Renaissance times.
3: Act 1 Scene 1 1 The feud is so big that it goes on in the whole city as random people are jumping into the fight. Citizens and servants as well as the family are fighting. | 2. You walk against the wall so you don’t get poop and pee on your head as people throw their waste out the window. 3. He duz not like to fight and will tell if something gose bad and tibot likes to fight and like to ceem thighs to him slef 4It is deth 5Because the city looks bad He is a bad and not a good her

6: Act 1 Scene 4 1 Romeo and Benvolio were going to go crash the party. 2 Romeo had a dream to not go to the party because in the dream he died. 3 Mercutio doesn’t believe in dream and does not think love is serious but just to have fun.
7: ACT 1 SCENE 5 1. The scene with the servants is to give the actors time to change, and to provide a bit of humor. 2 IRONY IS WHEN WE THINK OR WANT SOMETHING TO HAPPEN, AND THEN THE OPPOSITE HAPPENS. IN THE STORY, ROMEO CAN’T GET HIS MIND OFF ROSALINE BUT THEN HE SEES JULET AND FALLS IN LOVE. 3 TYBALT WANTS TO KILL ROMEO WHEN HE HEARS HIS VOICE, AND IF HE DOES KILL HIM, HIS UNCLE WILL KICK HIM OUT OF THE PARTY. 4 ROMEO TALKS TO JULIET AND MAKES HER BELIEVE IN STUFF TO MAKE HER KISS HIM. HE SAYS SHE HAS HOLY HANDS, AND THEN SAYS HE IS FREE OF SIN AFTER HE KISSES HER. 5 THE FORESHADOWING IS WHEN JULET SAYS SHE IS GOING TO DIE WHEN SHE GET MARRIED, AND ROMEO SAYS THAT HIS LIFE IS IN HIS ENEMY’S HANDS.
8: Act 2 Scene 1 & 2 1 Benvolio and Mercutio think Romeo is in the bushes with Rosaline. 2 Romeo is actually spying on Juliet. 3 He compares her to the sun, and says the moon is jealous of her. He also compares her to an angel. 4. The two scenes are put together to show that Romeo doesn’t just want Juliet physically but he loves her genuinely. 5. A rose that is called something else is still a rose, so Romeo is still Romeo and she still loves him, no matter what his last name is. 6. Romeo swears his love by the moon, but Juliet doesn’t like that because the moon is always changing and she doesn’t want his love to change. 7. Juliet proposes and makes Romeo think he did. They plan to get married right away (the next day) in secret.
9: Act 2 Scene 3 1.Romeo goes to see the Friar to see if he can arrange his marriage to Juliet. 2.The Friar thinks that Romeo isn’t really in love, because he’s obsessing the same way he did with Rosaline. The Friar thinks Romeo is just into her looks. 3.The Friar agrees to help with the marriage because he thinks it will stop the feud.
10: Act 2 Scene 4 1.Tybalt was mad because he’d been kicked out of the party, so he sent a letter challenging Romeo to a duel. 2.Mercutio calls Tybalt the Prince of Cats, and says he’s more than the Prince of Cats. This means that he thinks Tybalt is a really good fighter because the Prince of Cats was a famous swords man. 3.Mercutio thinks Romeo was with Rosaline all night and is very crude about it, and this bothers him because he likes Romeo and he is a total woman hater. 4.Mercutio treats the Nurse mean and makes fun of her for being fat and looking like a boat (a sail! A sail!). 5.The Nurse and Peter don’t speak in poetry (iambic pentameter) which shows they are uneducated and servants. 6.The Nurse and Romeo decide that Romeo will marry Juliet that afternoon, and that Romeo will bring a rope ladder to the Nurse so he can meet with Juliet in her room that night. 7.The mood of the scene is happy because Romeo is getting married, the Nurse is happy for Juliet, and Mercutio is happy because Romeo is joking around finally.
11: Act 2 scene 5 1. In this scene, we have Juliet and the Nurse who are talking about the wedding. The nurse was late and Juliet was anxious. Then the Nurse bugs Juliet and won’t tell her what Romeo said until the end. 2. The Nurse tortures Juliet because it went good with Romeo and she just wants to have fun with Juliet for a little while. Act 2 Scene 6 1.In this scene, Juliet went to the church and she and Romeo were all over each other and then Friar Lawrence married them. 2.The Friar’s speech had death and stuff in it and it was NOT A NICE speech.
12: Act 3 scene 2 1the nurse told Juliet that Romeo was died but he was banished 2Examples of antithesis (opposites) is when Juliet is yelling at Romeo for killing Tybalt. Like snake disguised and raven with the feathers of a dove and he is a lamb who hunts like a wolf and he is a saint who should who should be damned and he makes it look the opposite of what he is in this scene 3she duz not like what he as dun but she is confused abate what romeo as dun to her cuzing 4juliet duz not like the nurse macking her husband look bad and she gets mad at the nurse and tells her to shut up 5the nurse is going to get romeo to come to Juliet and give them a nitgh to them self and there last nitgh together
13: act 3 scene 3 1it is really good and the friar is like a father to Romeo. 2he wont the friar to kill him because he would rather see his own death then be banished and then he wont be abole to see Juliet any more. 3to go see Juliet and to have fun and to get out before the morning guards come and then go to a nether city so he can ceep his life and make ever one happy. 4it ends with him being happy because he gets to sped time with his wife
14: Act 3 Scene 4 1Juliet’s fate is that she will marry Paris no matter what Thursday and that is it. 2The only concern he as is if that the date of the wedding is too close to Tybalt’s death, and he does not want to cause something at the wedding. That shows that her dad only cares about himself and does not think of what Juliet and that shows they don’t have a strong relationship.
15: Act 3 Scene 5 1The comparisons shows what time it is and how Juliet doesn’t want Romeo to leave. And Juliet still thinks it is night because she says it is a nightingale, but Romeo says its morning because he heard a lark. 2 The foreshadowing is Juliet says that Romeo look died and Romeo says she looks dead too. 3 She does not like what her mother said to her about her having to marry Paris and that she is going to marry Romeo. 4 When Juliet says no, she won’t marry Paris, Capulet doesn’t like that very much and if she doesn’t show up at the church on Thursday, then she’ll be kicked out of the house and can never come back. 5. 6. The Nurse tells Juliet to marry Paris, so Juliet goes to Friar Lawrence’s church and she’s going to talk to him. I think she is going get a potion instead.
