View the step-by-step solution to:


1. When Romeo sees Juliet at a window, what types of imagery does he use to

describe his

newfound love (1-32)?

2. In Act I, Juliet expressed reluctance at the prospect of marriage. However, by the end of

scene 2, she broaches the topic with Romeo (143-148). What aspects of Romeo's dialogue

function most effectively in winning Juliet's heart?

3. Friar Lawrence is skeptical of Romeo's feelings towards Juliet, saying that Romeo does not

recognize the difference between doting and loving. How does the relationship between

Romeo and Juliet differ from Romeo's relationship with Rosaline?

4. Benvolio and Mercutio discuss Tybalt's abilities as a duelist at the start of scene 4, and

Benvolio concludes that Romeo will answer Tybalt's challenge to a duel. At this point in

the play, do you think a duel between the two characters is likely? Why or why not?

5. In the last scene, Juliet is eager to learn of news from Romeo about their upcoming marriage. However, the Nurse seems reluctant to share the news. Why? What effect does her

reluctance and talkativeness have on the audience?

6. As Act II ends, Romeo, Juliet, and Friar Lawrence exit to perform a secret wedding. What

are their reasons for keeping the marriage secret? Is this a good decision? Why or why not?
