FC: Romeo and Juliet by morgan
1: 1.The things that introduced during the First prologue were the two households where fighting they die and he gives away the end. He choose to tell us this because he wanted us to understand what was happening.
2: 2.The setting is taking place in Verona a beautiful place and the way they fight with swords it must be back in the 18th century or older.
3: 3.From forth the fatal lions of these two foes- it means that Romeo and Juliet are their kids. Whose misadventured piteous overthrows- They fail to convince their parents to give up the feuding even by marrying. Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove- The story of their doomed love, and their parents’ hate, only solved by the death of their children,
4: Question 1. 1.The feud tells us that the fight extends not just to the family but the servants also hate the other family. | Question 2. 2.The streets are in a v shape with a gutter in the middle and the people dump their waste but the wall is the safest spot not to get poop on you or other stuff.
5: Question 3. 3.Biting the thumb is the same as in this time fingering someone. It is considered an insult. | Question 4. 4.Benvolio is a tattle-tale or very open and honest and willing to give info about the person who fought or started the fight and stop the fight and very peaceful. Tybalt is allows drawing his sword for fight and never is peaceful.
6: Question 5. 5.The punishment for fighting on the streets was death. This is ironic because he is killing someone for killing someone. | Question 6. 6.It bothers the prince because he wants peace and it seems whatever he does he doesn’t get peace. He also thinks of it as a personal insult.
7: Question 7. 7.My first impression of Romeo is that he is a cry-baby/wuss. He is very swallow because he only likes the girl’s looks. He is lovesick with Rosaline. Rosaline just ignores him because she is going to be a noun. This is going to be an intense yet very swallow relationship with Juliet.
8: Question 1. Paris is an old rich guy who wants to marry Juliet | Act 1 scene 2 | Question 2. Lord Capulet is a very caring father in this scene, he wants Paris to wait 2 years and also wants Juliet to be in love before she marries. | Quetsion 3. Juliet doesn’t really have much power. Her parents expect her to do everything they tell her to.
9: Question 5. Romeo decides to crash the party because he reads Rosaline name on the party list. Shakespeare foreshadows by having Benvolio always say he will point out another beautiful girl and he will forget about Juliet. | Question 4. He is very high strung; he is given a letter but can’t read. He asked Romeo to read the letter and then say’s everyone is going unless you are a Montage. It gives Romeo the idea to crash the party.
10: Act 1 scene 3. | Question 1. Juliet does not want to marry at her age right now. Juliet says that she will look at him and see if he is likeable and try to love him.
11: Question 2. Desribe the Nurse. | The nurse character is old and is very dirty. She only has four teeth and thinks dirty all the time.
12: Act 1 scene 4 | 1. What are the boys about do in this scene? | They are on their way to the Capulet party which Peter the servant invited them. Romeo is going to this party to see Rosaline. They are all dressed fancy and in masks, carrying torches.
13: 2. Why does Romeo feel jumpy? He felt jumpy because he had a feeling that something bad was going to happen. | 3.Explain the type Mercutio is? Mercutio is a long winded guy who never stops talking. He is a high society guy who goes to lots of parties. In his speech he sort of sounds like he likes Romeo.
14: Act 1 scene 5 | 1.Why did Shakespeare include the scene with the servants? They’re there because the characters have time to change into the party clothes. It is also there because of comic relief and to introduce the party. | 2.What is ironic about Romeo’s entrance to the party? We thought that he would go straight to Rosaline but when he walks in and see’s Juliet and just forgets about Rosaline and goes for Juliet.
15: 3.What happens when Tybalt hears Romeo’s voice? Tybalt wants to fight Romeo but Capulet tells him that Romeo is doing nothing bad and just let him be. | 4.How does Romeo convince Juliet to kiss him so quickly? He plays minds games and gets her confused. He’s flattering her. He just kisses her both times without her permission. | 5.What foreshadowing do we get in the end of Act 1 scene 5? Tybalt’s going to get revenge on Romeo for crashing the party. Juliet has decided that Romeo the one she wants to marry him and she is going to die if she cannot marry him. (its foreshadowing by saying she is going die)
16: Act 2 scene 1/2 | 1.Where do Benvolio and Mercutio think Romeo is hiding? They think that Romeo is hiding in the bush with Rosaline. They also think that he is hiding under the medlar tree. | 2.What is Romeo actually doing? Romeo is actually spying on Juliet under her balcony in a bush. He is talking about juliet to himself. | 3.What things does Romeo compare Juliet to? Romeo compares Juliets eyes to those like a shining star, she is like the sun, and her cheeks are brighter than stars.
17: 4.More irony; why does Shakespeare make Mercutio and Benvolio talk about ‘physical love’ in the scene right before the balcony scene, where Romeo and Juliet talk about emotional love? Having Mercutio scene speech sets things up for the balcony scene because Romeo is disgusted by Mercutio speech because loves Juliet, and wants to marry her. It says love isn’t all physical but also emotional as well. | 5.A famous line from this scene is that “that which we call a rose by another name would smell as sweet.” What does this mean? This famous line means even if Romeo changes his name he will still be sweet and sensitive (in Juliet’s eyes). A rose will still smell the same if it was called a Tulip. It also means that Juliet will always love Romeo even if he is a Montage.
18: 6.What does Romeo swear his love by? Why doesn’t Juliet like this? Romeo swears his love by the moon. Juliet does not like this because the moon is always changing. | 7.Who proposes? What is the plan? Romeo proposes after Juliet drops some hints for him. The plan is that they shall get married at the hour of nine in the morning, and Romeo is supposed to ask the Friar to marry them.

Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo’s house because he wants to fight Romeo for crashing the party. | 2.What does Mercutio call Tybalt and why? Mercutio says that Tybalt is more than the Prince of Cats (a excellent swordsman), because he is a great swordsman | 3.Why is Mercutio so crude when describing Romeo’s night? Mercutio believes that love is a physical thing. He also doesn’t belive in love as an emotional love. He might also be jealous of Rosaline.
21: 4.How does Mercutio treat the Nurse? He treats the nurse disrespectful because he thinks that the Nurse is trying to seduce Romeo. | 5.What is interesting about the way the nurse and peter speak to one another? They don’t speak in iambic pentameter and they speak in full sentences not in a rhyme scheme. | 6.What do the Nurse and Romeo decide to do regarding the Marriage? They decide to have the wedding an hour later behind the abbey. Romeo is also going to get someone to get him a rope so he can see Juliet on their wedding night. | 7.What is the mood of the scene? The mood is happy, Romeo is finally joking around with Mercutio. Mercutio is sort-of jealous of Rosaline. But overall it is a happy scene.
22: Act 2 scene 5 | What happens in this scene? The nurse comes back with the news of the wedding. She won’t tell Juliet the news. | Why does the Nurse torture Juliet the way she does? The nurse torture’s Juliet because she is a cruel woman but also so when she tells Juliet she wants it to be more exciting. I think she also enjoys tormenting young girls.
23: Act 2 scene 6 | What happens in this scene? Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet. | Analyze Friar Lawrence’s speech to Romeo-not really a bubbly, pre wedding type speech is it? Friar Lawrence’s speech is foreshadowing for what is going to happen to Romeo and Juliet. It’s like a speech to make them reconsider marriage and go slower.
24: Act 3 scene 1 | 1.What happens between Tybalt and Mercutio? Romeo does not want to fight so Tybalt points his sword at Mercutio and Mercutio accepts the fight. | 2.What does Romeo do in retaliation? Romeo challenge’s Tybalt to a fight. | 3.How have Romeo’s choices led to his downfall? If Romeo hadn’t gone to the Capulet party Tybalt wouldn’t have tried to kill Romeo and Romeo would still be allowed in Verona and then Tybalt would be alive. Romeo would also never have fallen in love with Juliet.
25: 4.What creates a tragic hero? A tragic hero has a fatal flaw. | 5.What is Romeo’s fatal flaw? Romeo’s fatal flaw is that he is impulsive. He never thinks things through. | 6.What happens after the fight between Romeo and Tybalt? Romeo kills Tybalt then Benvolio tells Romeo to run away. The prince came and said that he would choice Romeo’s punishment the hour he was found. | 7.How is this the turning point in the story? This is the turning point because this leads up to Romeo being banished and Tybalt died. If Romeo wouldn’t have killed Tybalt he would still be allowed in Verona and then Romeo and Juliet would live a happy life and they probably wouldn’t have died.
26: Act 3 scene 2 | 1.What is the confusion in this scene? The confusion is that the nurse comes in to Juliet’s house all sad. The nurse was yelling he’s dead he’s dead. Juliet thought she was talking about Romeo not Tybalt. | 2.List four examples of antitheses that Shakespeare uses in this scene. Why does he use antithesis here? Shakespeare uses beautiful tyrant, fiend angelical, dove feathered raven, wolvish- ravening lamb. He uses these to say that Juliet still loves Romeo but doesn’t like what he has done.
27: 3.What does Juliet feel about what Romeo has done? Juliet feels that Romeo being banished is the worst thing ever. She thinks it’s worse than all of her family dead, including her and Romeo, worse than 10000 Tybalt’s dead. She was over reacting. | 4.How does Juliet react when the Nurse scold Romeo? What did this say about Juliet's view on her marriage? Juliet got mad at the Nurse for saying stuff about her husband. Juliet cares a lot about Romeo and thinks only she is allowed to scold Romeo. | 5.What does the Nurse decide to do? The Nurse decides to go talk to Friar Lawrence and try to find Romeo.
28: Act 3 scene 3 | 1.What is the relationship between Romeo and Friar Lawrence? I think the relationship is like father son because Friar Lawrence is talking to Romeo like he is his son. | 2.How does Romeo show that he is still foolhardy and willing to put emotion before logic? Romeo asks the friar to just kill him because being banished is worse than death. He should be thankful that the prince is just banishing him not killing him.
29: 3.What is the Friar’s suggestion to make thing right? Friar’s suggestion is see for Romeo to see Juliet that night then run away until the town is calm again and the death of Tybalt has passed. 4.How does the scene end? The scene ends with the nurse flirting with the Friar, and then the Nurse gave Romeo the ring. Romeo runs off saying he is sad to go but happy to experience the greatest joy of all.

What does this tell us about his relationship with his daughter? Capulet’s only concern was that she would still be crying over Tybalt death and wouldn’t be ready to marry Paris. This proves that Capulet’s doesn’t really know what Juliet wants or what she is doing.

She also double means her words by saying she would rather marry Romeo than Paris. | 4.How does Capulet react to Juliet’s acceptance, or lack thereof? What is the ultimatum he gives her? Capulet reacts harshly and threatens Juliet by saying that she could either marry Paris or go die on the streets.
33: 5.Quote one of the lines you feel PROVES Capulet is not the best father. Thank me no thankings, nor proud me no prouds, But fettle your fine joints 'gainst Thursday next To go with Paris to Saint Peter's Church, Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither. Out, you green sickness, carrion! Out, you baggage! You tallow face | 6.What does Juliet tell the Nurse? Is this the truth or a lie? What do you believe she will do?

Friar Lawrence’s plan is that she shall go home and on Wednesday night go to bed alone, drink the sleeping poison, and lay in her bed. She would go into a deep sleep and seem dead but would wake 42 hours later and while she was a sleep Friar would send a letter to Romeo. They would put Juliet in the Capulet crypt and Romeo would come and get her and they would run off to Mantua and live happily ever after.

42: Play Review | The author of Romeo and Juliet is William Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet is a love story. The plot is about two households both alike in dignity yet they still fight and have this feud from like 100 years ago is still going on. The best part of this play is when Romeo and Juliet are happy not crying in the woods. The party scene was good as well. The worst part would have to be all the long speeches in the play like Friar Lawrence’s and Mercutio’s Queen Mab speech. They go on and on and they don’t seem to end and they are very boring.
43: I would rate William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet a 2.5 because it was a little hard for me to understand. If I read it again when I was older it would be better. The story seemed to go on and on and sometimes it was quite boring. They way it was all set up with the Capulet’s and the Montague’s hate each but their kids fall in love. I would recommend this to people who like long and very hard grammar form the 1800’s and to people who don’t like happy endings.
