Terms in this set (11)
GREGORYThe quarrel is between our masters and us their men.SAMPSON'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when Ihave fought with the men, I will be cruel with themaids, and cut off their heads.GREGORYThe heads of the maids?SAMPSONAy, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads;take it in what sense thou wilt.
Shows that Tybalt is the antithesis of Benvolio
What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word,As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.Have at thee, coward.
The prince gives us the background regarding the fighting and tells what will happen if they fight again
Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word,By thee, old Capulet, and Montague,Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets,And made Verona's ancient citizens. Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments,To wield old partisans, in hands as old,Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate:If ever you disturb our streets again,Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
Romeo telling Benvolio that Roseline would rather become a nun than be with him. Uses mythology allusions
Well, in that hit you miss: she'll not be hit With Cupid's arrow; she hath Dian's wit;And, in strong proof of chastity well arm'd,From love's weak childish bow she lives unharm'd.
Shows the Nurse as Comic Relief
For then she could stand alone; nay, by the rood,She could have run and waddled all about;For even the day before, she broke her brow:And then my husband--God be with his soul!A' was a merry man--took up the child:'Yea,' quoth he, 'dost thou fall upon thy face?Thou wilt fall backward when thou hast more wit;
Tybalt wanting his sword to fight Romeo
This, by his voice, should be a Montague.Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave Come hither, cover'd with an antic face,To fleer and scorn at our solemnity?Now, by the stock and honour of my kin,To strike him dead, I hold it not a sin.
Capulet saying that he thinks Juliet is too young to marry
But saying o'er what I have said before.My child is yet a stranger in the world.She hath not seen the change of fourteen years.10Let two more summers wither in their pride Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride
Lady Capulet pushing Juliet to consider marriage
Well, think of marriage now. Younger than you
Here in Verona, ladies of esteem
Are made already mothers. By my count,75I was your mother much upon these years
That you are now a maid. Thus then in brief:The valiant Paris seeks you for his love.
Romeo when he first sees Juliet
Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear,50Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.
Juliet using good manners for back then by playing hard to get
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,Which mannerly devotion shows in this,For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.
Gave entire plot. Patterned after prologues from ancient mythology because Shakespeare was really into the Renaissance.
