FC: Romeo and Juliet Study Notes
1: We learn that Romeo and Juliet are fond of each other, that both households hate each other, even though they areprety much the exact same. then we learn that they 'take their lives'.the fight has been going on for years between the two familes. shackspear tells us so that we understand why they fight all the time. | Question 2 What is the setting of the story? The city of Verona which we think is in Italy. The families are both very wealthy. | line 4 where civil blood makes civil hands uncealn it means plople will be fighting in the street. line 7 whose misadventured piteous overthrows it means they fail to convince their parents to give up the feuding even by marrying but only in their death do they succed.
2: the fights are so bad they have spred to every person in the city. to take the wall is so you don't get crape throw on you . romeo is a crazy preson becuase he crys in the woods and when he not in the woods he crys in the his room and he likes a noan and he is a stocker. | Paris is an old guy, who is a friend of Capulet and is rich – he wants to marry to Juliet. Capulet is a good dad because he does not want to marry her yet and he wants her to be happy. He wants to her like the guy she marries. Juliet doesn't really have much power over her own life. She does have the power to choose whether or not she likes the guy, but ultimately her dad decides.
3: Peter is a high strung character that spazzes when his boss gives him a letter and he can't read. Romeo is going to crash the party so he can see Rosaline. We get foreshadowing that he'll meet Juliet because we know he's shallow and likes girls for looks. Also Benvolio tells us. | Act 1 Scene 4 The 3 guys are about to crash the Capulet party . Romeo feels jumpy because he had a bad dream about how something at this party will lead to his death and it does. Mercutio could be gay and he does not like women. He thinks dreams don't mean anything and he thinks love should be fun and not serious.
4: Act 1Scene 5 1. The servant scene is to give the actors a chance to change costumes and to provide comic relief. 2.The irony is that as Romeo walks in the door and sees Juliet, he instantly forgets about Rosaline. We expect him to do to Juliet what he did to Rosaline. 3. When Tybalt hears Romeo's voice, he goes crazy and wants to kill him. Capulet won't let him. | 4. Romeo doesn't even try to convince her to kiss him; he tricks her to kiss him by talking about her holy hands and how he has sinned. 5.The foreshadowing is that she says if she can't marry him, she'll die. In fact, she is going to die because she marries him.

It also shows us that Romeo is not like Mercutio and he really does love Juliet. | 5. "A rose by any other name is still a rose" means that if a rose had a diffrent name it would still be a rose. If Juliet called Romeo any other name, he'd still be the man she loves. 6.Romeo swears his love by the moon but she doesn't like it because the moon is always changing. 7.
