This means "We shall work to show you what happened." | "From ancient grudge break to new mutiny" This means "They have hated each other for generations, and they don’t even know why, but now new fights are about to break out" | "Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife." This means "They fail to convince their parents to give up the feuding even by marrying (misadventured piteous overthrows) but only in their death do they succeed" | "What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend." This means "We shall work to show you what happened." | "Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife." This means "They fail to convince their parents to give up the feuding even by marrying (misadventured piteous overthrows) but only in their death do they succeed" | Prologue

4: Q. What does the fight between the servants tell us about the fued in Romeo and Juliet? A. The fight between the servants tells us that the fued is strong and runs through, not only family, but throughout the household. | Q. What does it mean to take the wall?" A. The streets are at a slant with a gutter in the middle, to take the wall means to stay on high grounds and to pressure the opponent into the gutter. | Q. What is wrong with "biting your thumb" at someone? A. Biting your thumb at someone is a sign of disrespect; it was a very high insult and today it can compared to fingering someone. | Act 1; Scene 1

5: Q. What type of charecter is Benvolio? How is he antithetical to Tybolt? A. Benvolio is a peaceful character and wants there to be peace between the two families. He is very open and honest about everything, kind of like a tattle tale. Tybolt hates peace, and even the word, he is in on the whole fighting thing. | Q. What is the punishment for fighting in the streets as descreed by the Prince? How is this ironic? A. The punishment for fighting on the street is death; this is ironic because for fighting and trying to kill people, the punishment is death, so to stop the killing he is killing. | Act 1; Scene 1

6: Q. Why does it bother the Prince so much that their is civel unrest in Verona? A. The prince wants peace, and no matter what he does he can’t get there to be peace. He takes it as an insult to the way he rules because it reflects badly on him. | Act 1; Scene 1

7: Act 1; Scene 1 | Q. What is your first impression of Romeo? why is he acting the way he is? How does this set him up for the rest of the play? A. My first Impression of Romeo is that he is kind of a wimp, because he goes and cry’s out in the tree and sits in his room. He is so depressed because he is in love with someone that doesn’t love him back. He is also very shallow because the only thing he looks and knows about the girl he loves is her beauty. He does not really know her even though he claims he is in love. She, the girl he loves is becoming a nun, so he has no chance with her. Because he is so superficial we know that he will fall for the next pretty girl on the scene, Juliet.

8: Act 1; Scence 2 | Q. Why does Romeo decide to crash the Capulet party? Does Shakespeare provide foreshadowing for future events? A. He decided to go and crash the party because he saw Rosaline’s name on the guest list. Shakespeare makes it clear that Romeo is shallow and goes for looks, and Benvolio tells Romeo that he will find another hot girl at the party and that he will forget about Rosaline. Shakespeare also pointed out that Juliet is a very attractive young girl. | Q. How does Peter, the Capulet servant, provide comic relief in this scene? A. He provides a comic relief about the letter because he cannot read. He is also very high-strung and wants Romeo, a Montague, to go and crash the Capulet party.

9: Q. How much power does Juliet have over her own life? What Evidence do we see of this? A. Juliet does not have very much power over her life because she obeys and does whatever people tell her to. Juliet says it clearly that she will only go as far with Paris, as her mother pleases. | Act 1; Scence 2 | Q. Who is Paris? A. Paris is an old rich man who wants to marry Juliet. | Q. In this scene, what impression do we get of Lord Capulet? How does he feel about Juliet and marriage? A. Lord Capulet seems like a very caring father because he wants Paris to wait at least two years because he feels his daughter is too young. He also makes it clear that he wants Juliet to be in love when she gets married.

10: Act 1; Scene 3 | Q. How does Juliet feel about marriage? How does she feel about Paris? A. Juliet feels that she is too young to get married to someone so old like Paris. She thinks of Paris as an old wrinkly man, that is just rich. | Q. How would you describe the Nurse charecter? A. I would describe thue nurse as a dirty minded old woman.

A.Mercutio is not a very serious person, and rambles off once he is on a roll.

Some foreshadowing would be that Juliet is already talking about marriage, and Tybolt is very angry and is planning on revenge. | Q. What is ironic about Romeos entrance to the party? A. It’s ironic because you would think that he would go straight for Rosaline, but the first girl he sees, Juliet is the one he goes for and he forget all about Rosaline
