1 Romeo & Juliet

2 Look for… Puns Allusions Metaphor Personification Oxymorons Paradoxes

3 Puns A pun is a humorous play on words.
Mercutio – “Nay, gentle Romeo, we must have you dance.” Romeo – “Not I, believe me. You have dancing shoes / With nimble soles; I have a soul of lead…” (Act I Sc. 4)

4 Allusions An allusion is a reference to a well known work of art, music, literature, or history. “At lovers’ perjuries, they say Jove laughs.” (Act II, Sc. 2) Jove is another name for Jupiter, the Roman King of the Gods.

5 Personification Personification occurs when an inanimate object or concept is given the qualities of a person or animal. Juliet— “For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night / Whiter than new snow on a raven’s back. / Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow’d night” (Act III Sc. 2)

6 Paradoxes A paradox is statement or situation with seemingly contradictory or incompatible components. Juliet – “O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face!” (Act III Sc. 2)

7 Foreshadowing Foreshadowing is a reference to something that will happen later in the story. Juliet – “Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun.” (Act III Sc. 2)

8 PROLOGUE Two households, both alike in dignity,     In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,     From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,     Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.     From forth the fatal loins of these two foes     A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;     Whose misadventured piteous overthrows     Do with their death bury their parents' strife.


10 PROLOGUE--cont The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,     And the continuance of their parents' rage,     Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,     Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;     The which if you with patient ears attend,     What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

11 What can we learn from the PROLOGUE?
Verona, Italy (Setting, 14th Century) Montagues –VS- Capulets: (Characters) Generations of Hate Kids fall in love (Basic Plot) Secret marriage *Suicide Families overcome the hate at a tragic cost * (Foreshadows the deaths of R & J)

12 ACT I Purpose Exposition of the Play Characters Setting Conflict

13 ACT I, scene 1 Old hatreds are rekindled between:
The servants of Capulets and Montagues Tybalt and Benvolio The Capulets & Montagues (Fathers) All it took was one airy word or gesture “Do you bite your thumb at us sir?”

14 Offensive Gestures

15 Prince of Verona decrees:
“If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace” (I.1.104) Prince of Verona decrees:

16 ACT I, scene 1 Sycamore = Sick amore (love-sick)
Romeo Montague is heart-sick because he’s been rejected by Rosaline. He asks his friend Benvolio, “…teach me how I should forget to think!” (I.1.241)

17 ACT I, scene 1 Benvolio encourages, “By giving liberty unto thine eyes. Examine other beauties” (I ) translated: there are plenty more fish in the sea

23 ACT I, scene 2 Problem: The Capulets and Montagues are bitter enemies
Benvolio promises that he’ll assist Romeo in comparing Rosaline to other more beautiful women, and “…make thee think thy swan a (I.2.94) Romeo pouts that he’ll attend but have no fun crow”

24 Shakespeare’s Purpose
Plot device: Used to shape the love triangle, bringing Romeo, Juliet and Paris together Used to bring Romeo into enemy territory—a Montague in the Capulet home

“You have dancing shoes with nimble soles; I have a soul of lead” (I ) “I am too sore enpierced with his (Cupid’s) shaft to soar with his light feathers…under love’s heavy burden do I sink” (I ) Pun—a play on words

Romeo’s interpretation of love: Emotional & Spiritual Mercutio’s interpretation of love: Physical & lusty Foils

32 ACT I, scene 4 Romeo begins to tell his pals about a portentous dream he had Mercutio mocks him with a fairy tale about Queen Mab who visits people in their dreams

33 ACT I, scene 4 Romeo rebukes him, and then tells Benvolio about his dream, which makes him reluctant to go to the party Foreshadowing

Romeo feels Fate has predetermined that some event tonight will cost him his life More foreshadowing

Lord Capulet begins the party, inviting all to dance Romeo spies Juliet, and immediately falls heavily in love with her, instantly forgetting about Rosaline Love at first sight

36 ACT I, scene 5 “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night as a rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear—Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear! (I )

37 ACT I, scene 5 Hot-tempered Tybalt, Lady Capulet’s nephew, overhears Romeo’s voice, recognizes him as a Montague and prepares to kill him Lord Capulet orders Tybalt to “endure” Romeo’s presence, recalling the Prince’s decree. Tybalt obeys grudgingly, but will seek revenge at another time:

38 ACT I, scene 5 Tybalt remarks after Lord Capulet has exited:
“I will withdraw; but this intrusion shall, now seeming sweet, convert to bitter gall” (I.5.101)

39 ACT I, scene 5 The Infatuation The Kiss The Enemy

42 ACT I, scene 5 Juliet’s nurse breaks the news to each
Romeo’s reaction: “Is she a Capulet? O dear account! My life is my foe’s debt” (I ) Juliet’s response: “My only love, sprung from my only hate!... Prodigious love it is to me that I must love a loathed enemy” (I )

53 ACT II, scene 2 Romeo proposes & Juliet accepts

54 Parting is such sweet sorrow


56 ACT II, scene 3 Soliloquy: Friar Laurence is alone in his garden
He says that nothing is completely good or evil. It is how it is used. They can heal or kill. This speech shows his knowledge of herbs and drugs

57 ACT II, scene 3 Romeo arrives and explains that
He no longer loves Rosaline He is now in love with Juliet He asks Friar Laurence to marry them

58 ACT II, scene 3 Friar Laurence tells Romeo Young men love with their
eyes not with their hearts He still has tear streaks on his face from Rosaline

59 ACT II, scene 3 Friar Laurence isn’t sure this is a good idea but
He only agrees to marry them Because he thinks it will stop the feud between the two families

60 ACT II, scene 4 Mercutio and Benvolio are out walking in the town square. They discuss: That Tybalt sent a challenge to Romeo to duel They say that Tybalt is an expert at dueling (fencing, sword fighting) Prince of Cats

62 ACT II, scene 4 Romeo tells the nurse about the plan for the wedding

Friar L prays that God will bless the wedding regardless of what else happens to the couple Warns that “things” that happen so fast often end just as quickly (and explosively)

66 ACT II, scene 6 When Juliet arrives, Romeo uses a lot of poetic words to describe her and their love Juliet --worries that Romeo only talks about love; --is afraid that he doesn’t really understand love Romeo and Juliet get married

67 Start here

68 Act III: Banishment Central Issue: Theme:
Romantic love –vs.- family loyalty Theme: Love as a brutal emotion, leading to defiance of family, religion, & society

69 Act III, scene 1 Mercutio baits Tybalt who’s looking to duel Romeo
I love you, man. Romeo arrives but will not duel Tybalt because he is now his kinsman through his secret marriage “I never injured thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise (understand)…”

70 Act III, scene 1 Tybalt is unaware of the marriage, so he rejects Romeo’s peace offering Mercutio steps in to duel Tybalt As Romeo tries to break up the fight, Tybalt slays Mercutio Ratcatcher!

71 Act III, scene 1 As he is dying, Mercutio curses both the warring
families, saying: “Ask for me tomorrow and you shall find me a grave man” and “A plague on both your houses”

72 Act III, scene 1 Romeo is irate that he has allowed his love for Juliet to make him “effeminate” He savagely avenges Mercutio’s death

73 “O, I am fortune’s fool!” Act III, scene 1
Recognizing what he has done (murdered his wife’s cousin) Romeo blames his actions on Fate: “O, I am fortune’s fool!”

74                                                           Act III, scene 1 The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona, a penalty much less severe than he decreed

75 Act III, scene 1 If Romeo is found in the city, he’ll be killed

76 Act III, scene 2 Juliet’s soliloquy:
She impatiently awaits Romeo, so they may consummate their marriage Come, night: come, Romeo, come: thou day in night: For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night Whiter than new snow on a raven’s back.

77 Act III, scene 2 Juliet’s nurse finally tells her the sad news about Tybalt’s death at the hands of Romeo At first Juliet is angry with Romeo, then elated that he is alive, and finally suicidal because she fears she cannot live without him

78 Act III, scene 2 Juliet declares that, although married, she will die a maid (virgin) And that death will be her husband (Personification)

79 Act III, scene 2 The Nurse assures her that Romeo, who is hiding in Friar L’s cell, will be with her tonight Juliet asks Nurse to take a ring to Romeo, as a symbol of her undying love for him Notice that Juliet sees no middle ground in her life. She lives with Romeo, or she will take her life.

80 Start Here

81 Act III, scene 3 Friar Lawrence explains to Romeo that the Prince has banished him from Verona for killing Tybalt, an act of mercy Romeo see banishment as a punishment worse than death

82 Act III, scene 3 What does “Thou cuttst my head off with a golden axe” mean? Or “You’d complain if you were hung with a new rope”?

83 Act III, scene 3 Friar Laurence: “O, then I see that madmen have no ears.” Romeo: “How should they, when that wise men have no eyes?”

84 Act III, scene 3 Juliet’s nurse arrives at Friar’s cell
Romeo is so sickened by his actions (destroying his marriage) that he attempts suicide Friar scolds him for his rash, weak response, chiding him to stop whining like a wench and to act like a man

85 Act III, scene 3 Friar Laurence (the optimist) reminds Romeo of the “…pack of blessings” he has Juliet is alive and waiting for him Romeo has killed Tybalt, an enemy bent on killing him The Prince has spared his life

86 Act III, scene 3 Romeo, too, sees no middle ground in life.
Friar reveals his plan to Romeo and Nurse: Romeo will sneak to Juliet’s room tonight Consummate their marriage Escape to Mantua until their Make their marriage public Seek a pardon from the Prince *Nurse gives Romeo the wedding ring from Juliet. His spirits lift—for now

87 Hey, Baby. Watch' a doing after the funeral?
Act III, scene 4 Capulet and Count Paris again discuss the possibility of marriage (Thursday?) Paris: “These times of woe afford no time to woo”—(poor timing to pick up chicks) Paris is excited Hey, Baby. Watch' a doing after the funeral? ited

88 Act III, scene4 Lord Capulet asks his wife to let Juliet know that she’ll be marrying Paris on Thursday morning. It’s currently Monday evening Ironic: Sunday (yesterday), Lord Capulet denied Paris’ request to marry Juliet because she was too young

89 Act III, scene 5 It is dawn. Romeo & Juliet
have spent their first night together as a married couple Warning: Nudity Alert! Juliet is reluctant to let Romeo go to Mantua, teasing him that it is only the nightingale, not the lark.

90 Act III, scene 5 Romeo replies, “I must be gone and live, or stay and die” (3.5.11) As he departs a Juliet has a premonition, “Methinks I see thee…as one dead in the bottom of a tomb” ( ) Ironically, this is the last time the two will see each other alive Foreshadowing


92 Act III, scene 5 As Romeo sneaks away, Lady Capulet enters Juliet’s room She brings news that Thursday Paris will make her a joyful bride Juliet rejects this, telling her mother that if she marries, it will be Romeo (her enemy)

93 Act III, scene 5 Upon hearing this, Lord Capulet is furious and swears that if Juliet refuses this secure marriage to Paris: “…you (Juliet) shall not house with me…hang, beg, Starve, die in the streets, for, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” ( )

94 Act III, scene 5 Desperate and suicidal, Juliet appeals to her mother for help, but Lady Capulet replies: “Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” Next Juliet appeals to her Nurse, who advises her to take the secure option and marry Paris

95 Act III, scene 5 Juliet feigns agreement and pretends to go to Friar Laurence to make her (confession) In her soliloquy, Juliet reveals her thoughts: She no longer trusts her nurse and will not confide in her again She’ll seek advice from Friar Laurence If he cannot help her, she can always take her life Backup Plan

96 Purpose Shakespeare has moved Juliet from childhood into adulthood, both sexually and socially (all in two days) She’s exerting her independence from her parents and her nurse (love-vs.-family)


98 ACT IV A Wedding Becomes a Funeral

99 Dramatic Irony A contradiction between what a character thinks and what the reader or audience knows to be true Example: Act II, scene 4: Lord Capulet announces that Juliet will wed Paris on Thursday, unaware that she married Romeo on Monday

100 Dramatic Irony Another Example: Act III, scene 1, Romeo will not duel Tybalt because the two are now kinsmen through marriage. However, Tybalt is unaware of Romeo and Juliet’s’ secret marriage Purpose: Create suspense & tension Draw the audience into the action of the story

101 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Paris confides to Friar Laurence that Lord Capulet has hastened the wedding date to cheer Juliet, who continues to mourn “Tybalt’s” death (dramatic irony: Why does Juliet weep?)

102 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Juliet arrives at Friar’s to “make her confession.” She and Paris exchange polite but guarded words He promises to wake her Thursday morning, then leaves

103 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Juliet pleads with Friar for a way out of Thursday’s wedding to Paris (prefers bears to Paris). Her desperate plea is laced with threats of suicide: “If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help, do thou but call my resolution wise and with this knife I’ll help it presently” ( )

104 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday “…Out of thy long-experienced time, give me some present counsel: or, twixt my extremes and me this bloody knife shall play the umpire…” ( ) “Be not so long to speak. I long to die…”(4.1.73)

105 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Juliet’s desperate plea leads to a risky plan:
Friar Laurence proposes: “If rather than to marry County Paris, thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself, then it is likely thou wilt undertake a thing like death to chide away shame…” ( ) (recall the potion Friar made from the flower in Act II, scene 3)

106 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Friar Laurence’s Plan:
Juliet will return home & happily consent to wed Paris Wednesday evening she will drink the potion, which causes her to appear lifeless Paris will arrive Thursday morning to find her dead Her body will be taken to the Capulet vault

107 Act IV, scene 1-Tuesday Friar Laurence’s Plan:--cont.
Meanwhile, Friar will send word of the plan to Romeo in Mantua Friar & Romeo will meet in the vault and await Juliet’s awakening (42 hours) Romeo & Juliet will escape to Mantua (and live happily ever after)

108 Act IV, scene 2-Tuesday This is what actually happened:
Juliet returns home, apologizes to her father and happily agrees to marry Paris She tells her father that Friar has set her straight Capulet praises Friar L. for his sage advice and moves the wedding to Wed

109 Act IV, scene 3-Tuesday Juliet asks for privacy from her mother and Nurse on the eve of her wedding night to atone for her disrespectful behavior Lady Capulet and Nurse exit

110 Juliet’s soliloquy “Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again. I have a faint cold fear thrills though my veins that almost freezes up the heat of life” ( )

111 Juliet’s soliloquy She fears that the potion may be poison
She imagines she sees Tybalt’s corpse pursuing Romeo

112 Act IV, scene 3-Tuesday She fears that she’ll wake up before Romeo arrives and suffocate from the stench of Tybalt’s rotting corpse Frantic with fear, Juliet drinks the potion

113 Act IV, scene 4 Capulet household cheerfully bustles with wedding preparations (mouse-hunt = woman chaser) Paris arrives to wake his soon-to-be bride (dramatic irony—happy household / dead daughter and Paris coming to wake her)

114 Act IV, scene 5-Wednesday
Nurse discovers Juliet’s “dead” body Lady Capulet’s reaction: “…My child, my only life, revive, look up, or I will die with thee” ( ) Lord Capulet’s reaction: “Death lies on her like an untimely frost upon the sweetest flower of all the field” ( )

115 Act IV, scene 5-Wednesday
Capulet tells Paris of the Juliet’s death: “O son, the night before thy wedding day hath death lain with thy wife (personification). There she lies flower as she was, deflowered by him:

116 Act IV, scene 5-Wednesday
Capulet laments that the wedding celebration has turned into a funeral feast Friar Laurence blames the Capulet’s for the death of their daughter “The heavens do low’r upon you for some ill; move them no more by crossing their high will” ( )

117 Act IV, scene 5-Wednesday

124 Act V, scene 1 So “gold” is worse than the poison
