And it also tell us that the kids of the two family’s fall in love and both end up dyeing. | I think the reason that Shakespeare decided to tell us the information in the prologue because it would maybe help us understand it.

10: 7.What is your first impression of Romeo? Why is he acting the way he is? How does this set up Romeo for the rest of the play? My first impression of Romeo is that he is a cry baby freak and is kind of a creeper because he loves this girl and barley knows anything about her but that she is pretty, and that he loves her.

And when he see that he Juliet is pretty and he falls in love and it is going to be a very thence relationship, even if it’s a bit shallow.

Peter provides humor because he asked Romeo to read the names and then tells Romeo that no Montague’s are allowed at the party, not realizing Romeo is a Montague. He also is pretty spastic and freaks out a lot.
12: 5)Why dose Romeo decide to crash the Capulet party? Dose Shakespeare provide any foreshadowing of future events? Romeo crashes the party because he sees that Rosaline’s name is on the list. We know something is going to happen because Romeo is a selfish person who only goes after girls for looks, and we’ve been told Juliet is beautiful.

The sun, and says the moon is jealous of her brightness, and he compares her eyes to stars, and a baby hawk.
19: Act 2 Scene2 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? Mercutio believes that love is just a physical thing and Romeo thinks he truly loves Juliet and there is nothing about physical love between them. It shows how genuine (if not nave) Romeo is. 5.A famous line from scene is “that witch we call a rose by another name would smell as sweet” What does this mean? This is a meaning that you can like call something its not but it will still be itself and it means that Romeo is a Montague but he will always be Juliet’s Romeo. 6.What does swear by his love by?

23: Act 2 Scene 5 1.In this scene, the Nurse comes back and tells Juliet that Romeo said yes and she is to meet him at the church. 2.The Nurse at first pretends that Romeo said no, and then she just keeps changing the subject. I think she does this because its just how the nurse acts.
24: Act 2 Scene 6 1.Romeo and Juliet get married. 2. Its not a normal wedding speech and he kind of foreshadows their deaths.
25: Act 3 Scene 2 1. The confusion in this scene is that Juliet thinks that the nurse is talking about Romeo when she comes in saying he is dead … but she was actually talking about Tybalt. 2. Juliet finds out Romeo was the one who killed Tybalt and yells at him, calling him a “fiend angelical”, “beautiful tyrant”, “wolfish-ravening lamb”, and a “dove-feathered raven”. She uses antithesis here because she still loves him, but she is mad at him because he killed her cousin. 3. Juliet feels angry with Romeo, but she doesn’t hate him.
26: 4. Juliet gets mad at the Nurse for insulting her husband. This shows us that Juliet thinks her marriage is still good and she is still loyal. 5. Juliet starts bawling about how Romeo is banished and that she may as well kill herself, so the Nurse gets frustrated and then she says that she’ll go to get Romeo so she doesn’t have to deal with Juliet.
27: Act 3 Scene 3 1.The relationship between Romeo and the Friar is a good it kind of seams that Friar is like Romeos mentor and tells him what to do. 2. When Romeo says that he would rather die then get banished. 3. For Romeo to go out of the town for a bit and when everything cools down come back and make peace with the prince. 4. It ends with Romeo in a much better mood because he gets to leave and spend the night with Juliet.

29: Act 3 Scene 5 1.When Romeo and Juliet are arguing about what time it is because of what kind of birds they can hear then Romeo said Juliet was right and said he would stay but if he got caught he would probly get killed. 2.The foreshadowing Shakespeare gives us as Romeo leaves is when he said he is looking like a dead corps at a bottom of a coffin.
30: 3.Juliet reacts to what her mom tells he by being mad and arguing because she doesn’t want to marry Paris and she keeps like using dabble meaning like she would rather marry her enemy Romeo. 4.Capulet reacts to what Juliet says is that she should go DIE in the streets for all he cares ... 5.Capulet shows he is not a good farther when he says tell thee what: get thee to church o’ Thursday, or never after look me in the face. Speak not, reply not, do not … 6.Juliet says she is going to the church for confession… but she is actually getting a potion and the nurses says she should just marry Paris.
31: Act 4 Scene 1 1.Paris is at the church because he is setting up wedding arrangements, because by Thursday everyone will be over Tybalt’s death. 2.When Juliet says she would rather marry Romeo and all this stuff then marrying Paris. 3.When she said she was going to kill her self because she doesn’t want to marry Paris. 4.Juliet would rather get chained with roaring bears. Go to her grave… anything to get out of marrying Paris. 5. the Friars plan is that Juliet will take a drink and she will go in a deep sleep and look dead and then she will wake and run away with Romeo.
32: Act 4 Scene 2 1.Why is the servant man blathering on about cooks who lick their fingers? Because if the cooks lick their friends then it means they like their food and if they don’t it means their food probly is not too great. 2.What is an unexpected result of Juliet telling her father she’ll marry Paris? Capulet is so happy Juliet agrees to marry Paris that he moves the wedding up one day to Wednesday. Act 4 Scene 3 1.Juliet is unsure of taking the poison for a couple of reasons. Describe them. Juliet fears that the poison has never been used and that the Friar wants to poison her, and she could die. She worries that she’ll wake up inside the crypt and go crazy or that she’ll suffocate in the crypt alone. 2.What thing does she imagine that finally convinces her to drink the potion? The one thing that convinces her to drink the poison is when she day dreams about Romeo.
33: Act 4 Scene 4 1.What is this scene all about? They just prepared for the wedding and then the nurse was going to wake up Juliet. Act 4 Scene 5 1.How is Death personified in this scene? I think it could be compared to man because Capulet told Paris that "he was missed his chance to marry Juliet because Death has married her first." 2.Are Juliet parents unconcerned by her death, or angry that they don’t get to marry her to Paris? Explain your answer. They kind of don’t really care, and they said now they are going to change the wedding into a funeral. 3.What does the Friar tell the family to stop them from shouting out in grief? That they don’t have to pay for a funeral just change the wedding into a funeral. 4.What is the reason for having the argument between Peter and the musicians? So the people can move Juliet in the back… so its just randomly their.
34: Act 5 Scene 3 The author of the play is Shakespeare and the play has a lot of genre of the play could be love, humor, death, fight.. the plot of the play is about how to people fall in love and both their families hate each other and they don’t even know why but the kids fell in love and then in the end they both die. The best is how Mercutio is so sick minded and I is so funny and another one is when the people die. the worst thing of the play is how stupid the Romeo is when he like thinks he falls in love at first site like twice and the first one didn’t even like him another one is how the Paris guy is so old and he likes a 14 year old. I rate this book a 4 it has a good story line and it is very funny but has some stupid parts. I think people should read this because they will enjoy reading it and has a little reading challenge to it.
