Romeo and Juliet Character Colors
Transcript of Romeo and Juliet Character Colors
After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo was angry that he lost his friend and decided to act impulsively based on his feelings. He did not care or think about the outcome of his actions until he had already taken action. When Romeo stated, "O, I am Fortune's fool," he was in shock from killing Tybalt and realized his mistake. 3. Dynamic, animated communicator/character Act 5 Scene 3 Line 63 "By urging me to fury. O, begone!...Wilt thou provoke me? Then have at thee, boy!"
When Romeo goes to Juliet's grave to mourn, he meets Paris there. Paris believes that since Romeo is a Montague, Romeo intends to hurt the Capulet bodies. Thus, Paris wants to apprehend Romeo, but ends up provoking Romeo. Romeo is not afraid of Paris; Romeo displays his dynamic character with his choice of words and fiery fighting. 4. Bold in relationships Act 2 Scene 2 Line 14 "I am too bold. 'Tis not to me she speaks".
Romeo is under Juliet's balcony after the masquerade party when Juliet is voicing her thoughts. He wants to talk to her, but realizes that it would be a bold move, and that Juliet is just talking to herself. However, Romeo later shows his courageousness by talking. He is successful, as they end up making plans for marriage. Act 4 Scene 1 Line 95 "Take thou this vial, being then in bed,...And in this borrowed likeness of shrunk death...Shall Romeo by my letters know our drift, / And hither shall he come...bear thee hence to Mantua"
When Juliet is being forced to marry Paris by her parents, she goes to Friar Lawrence because she is desperate for help. Friar Lawrence is highly capable of planning for the future, and he creates a plan to save Juliet. The plan is for Juliet to take a potion where she will appear dead, but when she awakens Romeo will come take her to Mantua. The timing in this plan was important because Romeo had to be there right when Juliet woke up, showing the friar's capability in accurately planning for the future. 2. Are responsible and dedicated Act 5 Scene 3 Line 235 "And here I stand, both to impeach and purge / Myself condemned and myself excused."
After Romeo and Juliet each commit suicide, Prince Escalus, the Montagues, the Capulets, and Friar Lawrence all end up finding the dead bodies. Friar Lawrence takes responsibility for his part in their deaths and states that he should be accused for his wrongs and excused for what he did not do. The friar later explains Romeo and Juliet's full story and how he was involved. Even though it was not something to be proud of, Friar Lawrence did not avoid the explaining and stayed dedicated to the end. 3. Dutiful, believe work comes before play Act 2 Scene 3 Line 5 "Now, ere the sun advance his burning eye,...I must upfill this osier cage of ours / With baleful weeds and precious juiced flowers."
When the sun is just coming up in the morning, Friar Lawrence is already collecting herbs and flowers. He is starting off the day with his responsibilities, which shows that he is dutiful, and believes work comes first. 4. Desire punctuality Act 3 Scene 3 Line 158 "But look thou stay not till the watch be set, / For then thou canst not pass to Mantua,"
After Romeo kills Tybalt, he goes to Friar Lawrence and finds out that Prince Escalus had decreed banishment. This is trouble for Romeo, as he has planned to visit Juliet that night to consummate their marriage. Friar Lawrence decides that it will be acceptable for Romeo to go, but Romeo must watch the time so that he can escape to a nearby town, Mantua. This shows that the friar desires punctuality, as he makes sure Romeo will leave Verona on time. Act 4 Scene 3 Line 59 "Romeo, Romeo, Romeo! Here's drink. I drink to / thee."
Since Juliet was supposed to marry Paris, but she did not want to, Friar Lawrence gave her a potion that would make her seem dead, and eventually she would escape to Mantua with Romeo. Before Juliet took the potion, however, she had fears that the potion was actually poison, or that she would wake up too early in a vault and panic. Despite this, Juliet's love for Romeo and need to be with him overcame her fears and she took the potion. Ultimately, her decision was based on her feelings of love. 2. Desire quality time with loved ones Act 3 Scene 5 Line 12 "Yond light is not daylight, I know it, I. / It is some meteor that the sun exhaled / ...And light thee on they way to Mantua. / Therefore stay yet. Thou need'st not to be gone."
Romeo and Juliet had just spent the night together. Juliet did not want to believe that the light was the sun, she wanted to believe it was a meteor, and that it was still night. Also, Juliet had wanted to believe the bird chirping was a nightingale instead of a lark, since nightingales sing at night. This was because Romeo would be forced to leave in the morning and Juliet valued time with her loved one. Thus, she wanted to believe it was night so that Romeo could stay. 4. Value close relationships Act 2 Scene 2 Line 98 "They say, Jove laughs. O gentle Romeo, / If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully. / Or, if thou thinkest I am too quickly won, / I'll frown and be perverse and see thee nay, / ...In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond..."
After the masquerade party, Juliet is out on her balcony, and she ends up having a conversation with Romeo. Juliet expresses her love to Romeo, as well as her worries. 3. Share emotions Act 3 Scene 5 Line 220 "Comfort me; counsel me.- /...Upon so soft a subject as myself.- / What sayst thou? Hast thou not a word of joy? / Some comfort, Nurse.
After Juliet was told by Lord Capulet, her father, that she must marry Paris, she refused. Therefore, Lord Capulet became infuriated and threatened to disown her. Juliet tried to seek comfort in the Nurse, since the Nurse is a motherly figure to Juliet. However, Juliet felt betrayed by the Nurse, because the Nurse told Juliet to forget Romeo and marry Paris. Juliet had felt betrayed because she had valued the Nurse's close relationship, and Juliet had wanted comfort instead of disloyal advice. 2. Virtuosos 1. Competitive Act 1 Scene 5 Line 61 "This, by his voice, should be a Montague.- / Fetch me my rapier, boy. / What, dares the slave / Come hither covered with an antic face / ....To strike him dead I hold it not a sin."
At the Capulet masquerade party, Tybalt is angry that Romeo, a Montague, showed up. Even though there is a happy partying atmosphere, Tybalt is so competitive that he tells his servant to bring a sword so that Tybalt can kill Romeo. 2. Bold in relationships Act 1 Scene 5 Line 76 "Verona brags of him / To be a virtuous and well-governed youth"
At the Capulet's masquerade party, Tybalt wants to kill Romeo, since Romeo is a Montague. However, Lord Capulet prevents Tybalt from murdering Romeo, as Capulet does not want any disruption to his party. Furthermore, Capulet describes Romeo as virtuous. Act 1 Scene 5 Line 94 "You are a saucy boy. Is't so indeed? /... Be quiet, or for shame, / I'll make you quiet."
At the masquerade party, Tybalt wanted to fight and kill Romeo, but Lord Capulet would not allow it. Even though Lord Capulet had much authority over Tybalt, Tybalt was still bold enough to argue and talk back to Lord Capulet. Eventually, in the argument, Lord Capulet called Tybalt saucy. This was accurate, as Tybalt had the audacity to be disobedient to an authority figure. Act 3 Scene 1 Line 67 "Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries / That thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw."
Romeo had approached Mercutio, Benvolio, and Tybalt while Tybalt was provoking Mercutio and Benvolio. Tybalt started to call Romeo a villain and a servant. Nonetheless, Romeo was responding with kindness, since he was now married to a Capulet. Even though Tybalt was getting no response, he continued to provoke Romeo. Tybalt even told Romeo to draw his sword and fight, showing that Tybalt lived off of crises. 3. Thrive on crises
