Phil. 225-Romeo and Juliet 22:36 Written for an Elizabethan, renaissance stage
Image of page 2
Phil. 225-Romeo and Juliet 22:36 Tensions resonant with political tensions of the time What does Shakespeare have in mind for us to take away from this? What does this play really tell us about love? Why are Romeo and Juliet so FAMOUS as THE couple? Act 1, Scene 1, line 31: Gregory and Samson talking about “thrusting maids to  the wall” o Male aggression-swords; thrusts=main topic of their jokes Both high born people; belong to top stratum of society Fall in love with the right context and the right people Act 2, Scene 4, lines 37-47: bawdy quibbles, joking, double entendre humor  (like all of male parts) o Male sexuality overcoming the females Act 1, Scene 3, line 58: The nurse is speaking with Lady Capulet (Juliet’s  mother) o Comes up that Juliet is almost 14; Lady C. must be reminded of this--  power play on part of the nurse. “If you need to know how old she is, just  ask me.” o When she’s old enough, she’ll be on her back (sexually) o Main themes of Nurse humor: Women as producing children; female  pleasure Was it true love or momentary infatuation or lust?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
