Furthermore, before Romeo attends the Capulet’s party, he says, “Some consequence yet hanging in the stars/shall bitterly begin this earful date. (lines 1.4.114-115” Romeo already predicts that destiny has already chosen the consequence if he dares attending this party, where he will meet Juliet. Their final death is the “consequence” that he is talking about and bitterness that starts the pathway to their tragedy is their first encounter, since they are supposed to be enemies. In addition, it was a destiny that the children of two families who have held a grudge for a long time, have fallen in love. After discovering Juliet’s true identity, Romeo says, “O dear account!
Analysis of Act Three Scene Five of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet, by Shakespeare, tells the tragic tale of two “young star crossed lovers” who unintentionally engage in innocent love, amid the hatred between their two feuding families. This is a ply which also shows how prejudice leads to escalating violence. Prejudice leads to violence like experienced in the play by two feuding families the montages and the Capulet fight. The prologue, warns us, the audience at the beginning of the play how these lovers will end up taking their. own lives After reading the play and watching two versions of the film adaptation Romeo and Juliet, I will now focus on how effective Shakespeare dramatic techniques are in on Act Three, Scene five.
In this essay, I will focus on each part of the scene and analyse them, looking at the social and historical context, Shakespeare’s use of language and the dramatic devices, in order to explain why Act 1 Scene 5, of Romeo and Juliet, is an effective piece of drama. Straight from the prologue, we learn that the families are “both alike in dignity” (Prologue). It refers to it yet again in Act 1 Scene 5. The masked ball, shows that the party is held to get younger people together, in this case, to get Paris and Juliet together (Juliet is a Capulet). It is also held for Capulet (Juliet’s father) to prove his rank by showing the generosity he has by having the party.
In Act 3 scene 5 Romeo and Juliet have just woken up. Romeo says he must leave but Juliet doesn't want him to go: "Thou need'st not to be gone." Shakespeare coveys a loving and caring atmosphere through his use of language in this scene: "believe me, love, it was the nightingale." Capulet decides Juliet will get married to Paris in three day’s time. It is important this is revealed before the scene as it creates dramatic irony because the audience knows such a significant detail of the play, yet Juliet doesn't, even though it's her getting married.
Marriage is reaffirming the traditional social order after chaos and confusion of the comedy. Marriage is also seen as a respected institution, so it makes sense that at the end of a Shakespearean comedy play to have a wedding, as it is the climax of it. Furthermore, it symbolises all loose ends being tied up together and restoring harmony again, to the audiences’ relief. Shakespeare used a love story or plots of young lovers trying to overcome their ‘obstacles’ and difficulties. Up to this day, marriage is still used in comedies as it gives the comedic effect to the audience.
Story started with the baritone solo of Poppea's husband Otho who was just came back from service. He missed his wife so much but found out the shameful truth that his wife was in a relationship with emperor Nero. Then then scene changed into Poppea's bedroom. Nero was discussing with Poppea about conferring her as new empress and how he can divorce with Octavia. From the lyrics I found out Nero call Poppea "my glory","the light of my eyes" which shows his love.
Though both plays have the same ending, there is a distinct differentiation in its presentation (the chorus, character portrayal, etc) and how the death of Antigone wrought on the deaths of Haemon (Creon’s son) and Eurydice (Creon’s wife) which resultantly lead to Creon's despair. One major difference in the two texts is the character of the nurse, which is absent in Sophocles’ Antigone. Also a new element added by Anouilh is Haemon’s appearance on the stage and the dialogue thereafter exchanged between Antigone and him. The dialogue exchanged between them also throws light upon, how the previous night Antigone had gone to meet Haemon, decking herself using Ismene’s clothes and powder,
This extract from Act Four Scene Five of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is the scene where Juliet is discovered lying lifeless on her bed the day she was supposed to marry Paris. Her family and Paris mourn her apparent death. The audience, unlike Paris and the Capulets, knows that Juliet is not really dead, but has taken a potion that will make her appear dead as part of an elaborate plan by Romeo, Juliet and Friar Lawrence. In later scenes, the Friar's message that Juliet's death is not real will be miscommunicated to Romeo, and this would cause him to end his life and thus lead to the tragic ending of the play. All of Juliet's family members seem to show more emotion and care more about Juliet than they ever did when she was alive.
My grave is like to be my wedding bed" (1.5.135). she is saying that she will not marry a man other than Romeo, Without even knowing she foreshadowing her fate. (About her rebellion against her father about getting marrying to Paris.) Juliet tells Romeo "Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing" (2.2.183) Juliet feels she has so much love for Romeo that she feels that she might just love him to death. Juliet is willing to fake her death in order to remain married to only Romeo, even if it results in death to society.
Love as a Cause of Violence in Romeo and Juliet In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, love turns into uncontrolled feelings and actions, leading as much to problems as to happiness. But in its extreme passion, the love that Romeo and Juliet experience also appears so beautiful that few would want, or be able, to resists its power. The romantic love between Romeo and Juliet formed from the moment of its inception with death, Tybalt notices that Romeo has crashed the feast and determines to kill him just as Romeo catches a glance of Juliet he instantly falls in love with her. From this point on love seems to push the couple closer to love and hardships, not farther from it. Although Romeo and Juliet is a powerful and passionate romance, that romance is surrounded by violence, hatred, and chaos, and ultimately, that deep, passionate romance causes so much of the violence in Verona.
