1 Romeo and Juliet  Exam Review

2 Name That Character

4 Benvolio  Is the peacemaker in the play  Advises Romeo to get over Rosaline by looking at other girls

5 Lord Capulet  Tells Tybalt not to mess with Romeo because he’s a good kid  Tells Paris he must win Juliet’s heart  Threatens to disown Juliet  Moves Juliet’s wedding to Paris to Wednesday

6 Lady Capulet  Isn’t very close to Juliet  Asks Juliet how she feels about getting married  Casts Juliet aside, telling her to do whatever she wants

7 Paris  Is Juliet’s “arranged” husband- to-be  Gets killed outside the Capulet vault

8 What’s in a Quote?

9 Prince Escalus tells the families at the end that their feud cost them the lives of their children. And he, for not putting a stop to it sooner, lost two relatives (Paris and Mercutio). He notes that they all are punished (punished, punished).  “Where be these enemies? Capulet! Montague! / See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, / That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love! / And I, for winking at your discords, too, / Have lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished.”

10 When Juliet finds Romeo dead, she kisses his lips to get poison and notices his lips are still warm. This is ironic because she just missed him alive.  “Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end. / O churl! Drunk all, and left no friendly drop / To help me after? I will kiss thy lips. / Haply some poison yet doth hang on them / To make me die with a restorative. / Thy lips are warm!”

11 Lord Capulet’s reaction to Juliet’s death is ironic because the day before he told her to marry Paris or he would disown her. Now that she’s gone he realizes how important she was to him. Be careful what you wish for.  “O child! O child! My soul, and not my child! / Dead art thou, dead! Alack, my child is dead, / And with my child my joys are buried!” (IV.v.71-73).

12 As he dies, Mercutio curses the Montagues and the Capulets for their feud cost him his life. Example of foreshadowing.  “A plague o’ both your houses!”

13 Friar Laurence comments on how Romeo falls in and out of love so quickly. He suggests to Romeo that it isn’t love yet; he just finds pretty girls attractive. Romeo is hasty and rash.  “Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, / So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies / Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.”

39 Explaineth the Quoteth

40 When Romeo sees Juliet the first time, he instantly fell in “love” with her and forgot Rosaline. Hasty and rash actions.  “Did my heart love till now? Foreswear is sight! / For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”

41 Juliet questions why her new love has to be a Montague, her family’s sworn enemy. She thinks that one of them can drop the family name so they can be together. Hasty and rash.  “ O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? / Deny thy father and refuse thy name! / Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, / And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.”

42 Romeo tells Tybalt that one or both of them must die to avenge Mercutio’s death. The feud between their families led to his demise. Friendship love.  “Either thou, or I, or both, must go with him.”

43 Lord Capulet refuses to listen to Juliet and threatens to disown her if she refuses to marry Paris. Hasty and rash. Doesn’t like to be challenged.  “Look to ‘t, think on ‘t; I do not jest. / Thursday is near; lay hand on heart, advise. / An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend; / An you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee, / Nor what is mine shall never do thee good.”

44 When Romeo sees Juliet in the tomb, he notices that she looks beautiful and her cheeks are still pink. This is dramatic irony because the audience knows she isn’t dead; in fact, she is coming out of Friar’s trance.  “O my love! My wife! / Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, / Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty. / Thou art not conquered. Beauty’s ensign yet / Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, / And death’s pale flag is not advanced there.”

45 Lady Capulet’s grief over the loss of Juliet is ironic because the day before she told Juliet to do whatever she wanted because she was done with her daughter. Lady Capulet could have prevented tragedy if she would’ve realized how much she loved Juliet the day before. Be careful what you wish for  “O me, O me! My child, my only life, / Revive, look up, or I will die with thee!” (IV.v.19-21).

53 Foreshadowing in Romeo and Juliet

54 Romeo has a dream that he died and Juliet brought him back to life with a kiss. This foreshadows how he will kiss her later, and she does come back to life. However, when she kisses him, he does not.  “I dreamt my lady came and found me dead-- / Strange dream that gives a dead man leave to think!-- / And breathed such life with kisses in my lips / That I revived and was an emperor.”

55 Romeo has a dream that something will start that night at the party and end with his unexpected death. This foreshadows how he will meet Juliet, and through a series of many complications, face his untimely death.  “For my mind misgives / Some consequence, yet hanging in the stars, / Shall bitterly begin his fearful date / With this night’s revels and expire the term / Of a despised life, closed in my breast, / By some vile forfeit of untimely death.”

56 Juliet has vision of Romeo dead in a tomb as he leaves her balcony. This is an example of foreshadowing because the next time she sees him he is dead in the vault.  “O God, I have an ill- divining soul! / Methinks I see thee, now thou art below, / As one dead in the bottom of a tomb. / Either my eyesight fails, or thou look’st pale.”
