Dido Allusion
By Amaryah DeJournettt
Allusion Loctation:
Act 2, Scene 4, Line 47
Plot Context:
Mercutio and friends were wondering where dear Romeo was. The next morning the nurse is sent by Juliet to find Romeo to ask where they will be getting married. when Mercutio starts making fun of her saying things like "no hare so unless a hare sir in a lenter pie-that is something state and hoar ere it be spent." The nurse sees Romeo as a bad match for Juliet because of Mercutio and his other friends. Romeo tells the nurse to tell Juliet to meet him at Friar Lawrences cell where she will be made a wife.
Research:
Before Aeneas Founded Rome, he was a trojan Solider.
When Troy fell he left with his followers in seven ships.
Aeneas and men were shipwrecked on the shore of Carthage, The Great African city ruled by Queen Dido.
Dido and Aeneas fell deeply in love, but Aeneas had to leave to Italy to fulfill his destiny. Dido was left heartbroken and alone. In her despair she built a pyre where she killed her self so she wouldn't marry King Iarbus.
Quote:
" Dido a dowdy, Cleopatra a gypsy, Helen and Hero hilding and harlots, Thisbe a grey eye or
so, but not to the purpose. "
Analysis:
Queen Dido is simlar to Juliet because she has a strong
lust toward Aeneas just like Juliet has toward Romeo. In the story of the city to fulfill his destiny in Italy. This represents Romeos banishment from Verona which lead Juliet to heartbreak. Because Queen Dido loved Aeneas she killed herself to get out of the marriage to King Iarbus. This forshadows Juliet's fate in Act 4, Scene 1, Lines 43-127. Juliet was forced to marry Paris which leads her to fake her death for her love towards Romeo
