Transcript of Exposition
"With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls; For stony limits cannot hold love out, and the place death, considering who thou art, if any of my kinsmen find thee here"(Act 2 Scene 2 lines 68-72). As Romeo and Juliet meet at Capulet's Garden, their relationship begins to grow as Romeo says that he is willing to take risks for her.
"Then plainly known my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of rich Capulet; as mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, and all combined, save what thou must combine by holy marriage. When, and where, and how we met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow, I'll tell thee as we pass; but this I pray, that thou consent to marry us today"(Act 2 Scene 3 Lines 62-69). As Romeo is arranging for him and Juliet to marry, their relationship is entering a point of no return.
"Ha, banishment? Be merciul, say 'death' ; For exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death. Do not say 'banishment'"(Act 3 Scene 3 Lines 15-17). As Romeo finds out that he has been banished from Verona he says that death would have been worst than exile. As this happens, Romeo can no longer talk to Juliet because of his banishment.
Thou desperate pilo, now at once run on the dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here's to my love! [Drinks.] O true apothecrary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. [Falls.]"(Act 5 scene 3 Lines 120-124). As Romeo finds Juliet "dead" after drinking the potion he drinks poison killing himself. Ironically, Juliet is alive and the relationship is shattered after Romeo's death. This results in the
Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all. Here's much to do with hate, but more with love. Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate! O anything, of nothing first create! O heavy lightness! serious vanity! Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms! Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I, that feel no love in this. Dost thou not laugh?"(Act 1 Scene 1 lines 184-193). As Romeo is explaining his desire for love, the plot unfolds as it shows that Romeo is desperate for love which makes him blind.
