Quote Finder
" love in death"
Lit Terminator
Rhyme- in Act 2 Scene 1
1. Contemporary: The rivalry between the Montagues and the Capulets follows the similarity of a gang war, with two gangs on opposite sides, and the Law Enforcement in the middle to keep the peace.
2. Media: The Monk’s questioning for Romeo’s marriage is similar to Elsa’s in Frozen when Anna asks to wed with Hans.
3. Social: Verona, Italy is an actuall place, and, just as the two famalies promise, a gold statue was erected in honor of Juliet, and dosens events regarding love also happenen there.
4. Historical: Similar to Romeo’s folly, when the US tried to provide aid to Mogadishu, it ended up in a flaming disaster more commonly known as Black Hawk Down.
5. Historical: Up until the late 20th century, when we had the convince of heart monitors, there were incidents where people were mistaken as corpses and were actually buried alive, becoming so common to the point where there may be an air tube from the gravestone to the coffin for air and a rope connecting to a bell topside to try to call for help, verifying Juliet’s fears of the vial being too effective.

Shakespeare has no official birth record, only a record of being baptized.
Weeks before Shakespeare died, Shakespeare wrote The Last Will and Testament where he said that his wife shall receive his
best bed which shows that they where distant in their relationship.
It is unsure how William Shakespeare died.
Romeo and Juliet is estimated to have been performed around 1594-1595 in the Elizabethen Era
Romeo and Juliet was written in 1594, the year he wrote Two Gentlemen of Verona and Love's Labour's Lost.
This is one of twelve tragedies Shakespeare wrote in his lifetime.

me!' pronounce but
Climax- in Act 5 Scene 3
'Romeo drinks the poison and dies. Juliet wakes up and finds Romeo's dead body kisses his lips that have poison on them and stabs herself.'
Allusion- in Act 2 Scene 1
'Speak to my gossip Venus one fair word'
Artistic Replicator
" Revive, look up, or I will die with thee"
" He is kinsman to the Montague; Affection makes him false"
"Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say death"
"So shalt show me friendship"
Does not being honest have severe consequences?
Why do some people only make peace after losing something they love?
Does emotion cloud judgement?
Why did Juliet choose death over a new life?
Does death reveal the truth?
One’s Folly reactions
By An Nguyen
Because love had made him so weak and soft
Two people are now lying on the floor
Both of them will not breathe not anymore
Because of this our hero leaves the loft
And now our mistress is in some unrest
Claiming that after all has heard and said
That no one will take her fresh maidenhead
And that death shall lie on her dying breast
