FC: Romeo and Juliet Novel Study By Taylor

1: What things are introduced dring the prologue?

2: The things that were introduced in the prologue were that there was two households, the Montagues and the Capulets. They did not know why they were fighting, but they were fighting just because ther parents fought. We also learn that Romeo and Juliet will meet, fall in love, get married and then commit suicide. Shakespeare tells us all this because it is important and he wants us to know the background of the play.

3: Were is the setting the setting does not only tell were the story takes place but the time and the day.

4: My first impression of Romeo is a cry baby who cries all the time. But also he seems nice, caring and loving. If he wants something he goes full out. He is love sick that is why he is acting this way. We will think that this is very intense and he goes from one pretty girl to the next.

5: The end of act 1 scene 1.

6: What is wrong with “biting your thumb at people”? Biting your thumb is bad back then, because it is just like giving someone the bird.

7: The difference between Tybalt and Benvolio? Benvolio is a tattler and he just wants peace he wants everyone to get along. Tybalt is the exact opposite he wants to fight he does not want peace. He hates the word peace.

11: Three words or phrases that seem confusing are: "what here shall miss, are toil shall strive to mend. " This means the people in the play are going to show us what happened. "The fearful passage of their death-marked love" which means their story of their doomed love, and their parents' hate, only sovled by death of their children, is the topic of todays show. Which, but their childeren 's end,naught could remove. Which means their story of their doomed love, mad their parents' hate only solved by death of their children, is the topic of todays show.

12: The punishment for fighting on the street is he will kill people. Because he needs to kill people is that he needs a major punishment so the people will actually listen to him. Everything else that he has said had not worked.

13: Why does it bother the prince so much that there is civil unrest in Verona. It bothers him so much because he wants peace he wants everyone to get along. I think he thinks that he is doing a bad job being prince if everyone is fighting.

What is the ulitmatum he gives Juliet? Capulet practically blew up at juliet he got really mad. He said if Juilet did not marry Paris she would have to leave the house. Quote one of the lines you feel PROVES that Capulet is not the best father. 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!

51: What does Juliet tell the Nurse? Is this the truth or a lie? What do you belive she will do? The Nurse tells Juliet to just marry Paris. Juliet lies to the Nurse and Juliet says that she agrees with the Nurse so she goes to confession well that is what the nurse thinks but she geos to Friar Lawrance.

52: Act 4 Scene 1 Why was Pairs at the church? What did he tell the Friar? Paris was at the church to tell the Friar that himself and Juliet were going to get married on Thursday. THe Friar nnows about Juliets marrige with Romeo so he is trying to get Paris calmed down. The Friar also thinks that the wedding is to close to Tybalts death. How does Juliet use double entendres in this scene? That may be, sir, when I may be a wife. How does Juliet mirror the actions of Romeo who was in the very same place the day before? She held a knife to her chest and told the Friar if he did not help her she would kill herself.

53: What are some things that Juiet would do rather than marry Paris? O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris, From off the battlements of yonder tower; Or walk in thievish ways; or bid me lurk Where serpents are; chain me with roaring bears; Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, O'ercovered quite with dead men's rattling bones, With reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls; Or bid me go into a new-made grave And hide me with a dead man in his shroud— Things that, to hear them told, have made me tremble— And I will do it without fear or doubt, To live an unstained wife to my sweet love.

54: Outline Friar Lawrence's planin detail step-by-step He wants Juliet to go home and tell her parents she is fine and happy and her day was awsome then he wants her to be alone in her room and then drink the posion that he gave her, he will send a letter to Romeo to tell him what is going on, they will put Juliet in the ancient vault, then when Romeo comes back the Friar and Romeo will wait in the vault till she wakes up.

56: Act 4 Scene 2 Why is the servantman blathering on about cooks who lick there fingers? When cooks lick there fingers that means that their food is good because the are willing to try their on food. What was the unexpected result of Juliet telling her father she'll marry Paris? The unexpected result of Juliet telling her father that she will marry Paris is that her father says is really happy for her and he says that the wedding is going to be tomorrow.

57: Act 4 Scene 3 Juliet is unsure of taking the poison for a couple of resons disribe them. Well the first resons is that the Friar wants to get out of marrying her and Paris because he already married Romeo and Juliet and if he were to marry Paris and Juliet it is agianst the law! she thinks that she will wake up and smell awful odors. I'll hear screams that would drive people crazy. The third reson is that she will wake up by Tyblats roten body and the hyperventilate. What things does imaone that finally convinces her to drink the potion? Romeo is going to come and save here

58: Act 4 scence 4 What happens in this scene? Juliet fakes her death and the Nurse and Lady Capulet are making the pies and pasta. They find Juliet in her bed dead! Act 4 scene 5 How is death personified in this scene? Paris missed his chance to marry Juliet because death caught her first. Are Juliet's parents unconcerned by her death, or angry that they don't get to marry her to Paris? I don't think that Juliet's parents don't care that much but the Nurse does care about Juliet.

59: What does the Friar tell the family to stop them from shouting out in grief? He tells the family that she is better in heaven and it is better for Juliet. Nothing that Juliets do to help would do anything she would still have died. What is the reason for having the argument between Peter and the musicians? The reason for having the argument is so that they can get Juliet in the death shroud and Lord and Lady Capulet ready. Basically it gives the other people some time to get ready, and to move Juliet's body to the vault.

60: Act 5 Scene 3 Summarize the ending of the play! Paris's page went and got the police and the police went to the scene. The Prince told Lord Montigue and Lord Capulet that their shall be peace between the two house holds no more fighting. Romeo and Juliet is wrote by Willam Shakspeare. The play is a Romantic play. Two good things about the play is that it was really never boring and it was a really good story line. Two bad things are that it is all about the love and Rmeo is so winey.

61: Rate the story on a five star rate backup your reasoning. I think that i would rate it a 3 because I think it is just all about the love not about the people really but other than that was a really good story. If you are all about love then you should read the book.
