Transcript of Act 1, scene 5

Learning Objective: Romeo and Juliet To explore the theme of love in Act 1, scene 5 cold fire The love in 1:5 is based on appearance – love at first sight (important in Elizabethan times) however the love in 130 is based on who the woman is.

Positive Vs Negative

1:5 uses extremely religious vocab creates almost a fantasy world whereas 130 is about reality

Both men use a genuine sonnet structure which supports their ideas of love

Romeo sees Juliet as a goddess, the speaker in 130 knows she isn’t a goddess Comparing Sonnet 130 to the shared sonnet in 1:5 When R and J share a sonnet in 1:5 their love is based on first sight and appearance whereas the love Shakespeare has for The Dark Lady in Sonnet 130 is real and rare and about her personality.

There are metaphors in both sonnets.

The language used in the shared sonnet that Romeo and Juliet speak is almost like fantasy in comparison to the ideas in Sonnet 130 is very realistic.

Romeo see’s Juliet as a goddess whereas the poet see’s The Dark Lady in Sonnet 130 as a real women. Write paragraph which shows the differences between the two sonnets.

Romeo sees Juliet and forgets Rosaline entirely; Juliet meets Romeo and falls just as deeply in love.
The meeting of Romeo and Juliet dominates the scene and Shakespeare uses language that is filled with religous imagery and metaphors. The first conversation between Romeo and Juliet is an extended Christian metaphor. Using this metaphor, Romeo ingeniously manages to convince Juliet to let him kiss her.

But there is more to it than that:

The religious imagery of the conversation implies that their love can be described only through the vocabulary of religion and a pure association with God.

Their love becomes associated with the purity and passion of the divine

By using religious language to describe their feelings for each other, Romeo and Juliet are verging on blasphemy. Romeo compares Juliet to an image of a saint or an idol; a role that Juliet is willing to play. What do you notice about the language used by, Romeo and Juliet?
