The Friar thinks it is awfully sudden since the day before he was obsessed with Rosaline but agrees to marry them. Tybalt has sent Romeo a duel challenge and has sent a threatening letter to his home. The Nurse enters looking for Romeo. Mercutio makes fun of her by calling her names and then Mercutio and Benvolio leave. Romeo gives the Nurse the message for Juliet to meet him at the Friar's cell to be married that afternoon.
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet is a timeless tale of lovers whose misfortune and immaturity was a cause of their own destruction. The characters individually show immaturity and together demonstrate how ignorance of the world affects more than just their own lives. Romeo and Juliet, as expressed in the succeeding examples, fall in love quickly as a result of their naivety. Juliet is shown to be immature in an opening scene where her father tells the bride-seeking Paris his daughter is not old and grown-up enough to marry. It is also shown during the balcony scene when she agrees to marry Romeo after knowing him only a day and she is not even sure herself that Romeo wants to marry her.
Who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Firstly, I would blame Lord Capulet as he causes his own daughter's death by forcing Juliet to marry Paris only a few days after her cousin, Tybalt's, death. Juliet protests this marriage because she alone knows that she and Romeo have been secretly married. However, Lord Capulet refuses to listen to anything she has to say and threatens to throw her out of the house and out onto the streets. "And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets."
This feud brought problems along with it, such as the killing of Tybalt by Romeo. Juliet had said: “What’s in a name?” which explains her ill fate of being a Capulet and Romeo being a Montague. When Romeo tells his servant, “Ay, mine own fortune in my misery.” This sentence tells us he does not care for what Juliet’s name, nor his is. Bad luck plays a major role in the story of two-star-crossed lovers. There is an example of this when Romeo attends the Capulet’s party, and this is where he is first exposed to Juliet and where the misfortune begins.
Scene 2: Romeo goes to visit Juliet at her home. They both declare that they love each other despite familial differences ‘a rose by any name would smell as sweet’. They exchange loving words and profess their love for each other. Juliet is uneasy about how fast things are happening and asks Romeo to prove his love by marrying her. He agrees.
They will prorbaly meet bad fates, because of all of their fighting natures. • At the end of the street fight in scene 1, what does Escalus, the Prince of Verona, threaten to do if the Capulet and Montague families get into another fight? He threatens to sentence them all to death. • How do Romeo and his friends learn that Rosaline will be invited to Capulet’s party? They see the guest list when the invitations are being passed out.
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.” Meeting Juliet makes him instantaneously forget about Rosaline and never think about her again. The second reason, is that the fighting between the Montagues and Capulets becomes exaggerated when Tybalt discovers Romeo is at the Capulet’s ball. Tybalt is furious at Romeo’s gatecrashing and requests not only that Romeo and his friends be thrown out, but also that the Capulet’s take revenge for the fact that he had the nerve to come to the party. In this act, the audience has a bad feeling about the play, as in the scene before this one, Romeo says “Shall bitterly begin this fearful date With this night’s revels, and expire the term Of a despisèd life closed in my breast By some vile forfeit of untimely death.” Which means, “this party tonight will be the start of something bad, something that will end with my own death” Act 1 Scene 5 begins with some serving men, who are excited for the feast, because after they’re finished working they can enjoy the festivities with their lady friends. Capulet is in an extremely good mood at the beginning of the scene when he is reminiscing with his cousin about how long it had be since the two of them had been to a masque.
Explain the importance of Act 1 Scene 5 in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and how what we learn prepares us for events later in the play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ was written by William Shakespeare in 1594. The prologue to the play is in the form of a fourteen-line sonnet, it describes two noble households in the city of Verona. The houses hold an “ancient grudge” against each other that remains a source of violent and bloody conflict. It then goes on to states that from these two houses, two “star-crossed” lovers will appear. These lovers will be the solution to the quarrel between their families by dying.
Romeo and Juliet Final Essay In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare uses in-depth imagery to characterize Romeo Montague as an acutely hopeless romantic, as well as define him as a lost cause when lacking lust in his life. After Romeo reads an invitation to the Capulet’s House party, Benvolio suggests that they attend in hopes that there will be a more attractive lady than Rosaline that he could hit on. Romeo counters with, “One fairer than my love? The all-seeing sun/ Ne’er saw her match since first the world begun,” (I. ii. 99-100).
The soliloquy in Act 1, Scene 5 lines 42-51 is given to us by Romeo. Prior to this soliloquy, Benvolio tells Romeo to go to the party and to realise that there are better women than Rosaline as Romeo thought he was in love with Rosaline. Romeo arrives at the party at the Capulet house to see Rosaline. However, Romeo sees Juliet instead. This is the very first time that Romeo sees Juliet and they both fall in love.
