Transcript of Romeo & Juliet

T quick-witted emotional impulsive/hasty charming "Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer." "Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this" "If he be married,
My grave is like to be my wedding bed." "My only love, sprung from my only hate!" "Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me
That I must love a loathed enemy." C
T jovial reasonable sensitive/temperamental "Welcome, gentlemen! Ladies that have their toes
Unplagu'd with corns will have a bout with you." "I would not for the wealth of all this town
Here in my house do him disparagement." R
O intelligent/creative Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged. idealistic/romantic "O, 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;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!" "Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night." impulsive/rash straightforward/direct popular/well-liked "He bears him like a portly gentleman;
And, to say truth, Verona brags of him
To be a virtuous and well-govern'd youth" naive Am I the master here, or you? Go to!
You'll not endure him? God shall mend my soul! T

jULIET arrogant hotheaded vengeful "This, by his voice, should be a Montague.
Fetch me my rapier, boy." "It fits when such a villain is a guest.
I'll not endure him." "I will withdraw; but this intrusion shall,
Now seeming sweet, convert to bitt'rest gall." This shows that he is a man who knows how to be a good host and make his guests feel comfortable. Although in feud with the Montagues, he insists on doing no harm to Romeo and even reasons with Tybalt that he is in fact a good man He does not like to be disobeyed and reacts aggresively towards any signs of disobedience from his subjects. He cannot control his temper and lashes out at people easily. Despite being told by his uncle to back down, he refuses to listen or obey. Boiled over by rage, he vows petty revenge against Romeo for gatecrashing Capulet's party. Upon seeing Juliet for the first time, he immediately exalts her beauty. The fact that even Lord Capulet can praise him shows that he is well-liked by people. He falls in love with Juliet at first sight without even knowing anything about her. "If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss." In his opening lines to Juliet, he wastes no time in letting Juliet know what he thinks and wants from her. He is skilled in the art of flirting and knows how to turn the conversation into his favour. She knows how to counter Romeo's advances and stand her ground. She knows how to flirt back and play along with Romeo in his game Like Romeo, she can be quite dramatic in her speech and actions. She has never been in love and yet, she is already convinced that what she feels for Romeo is real love. Despite meeting Romeo for the first time and not knowing anything about him, she has already fallen in love with him
