double meaning . This literary term in act III is said by Mercutio,
when he is dying. He got hurt by Tybalt in a
sword fight. This literary term shows that even when
Mercutio is dying he still has a sense of humor till the end. Mercutio, knew the truth that he was going to die , but
he didn't want to accept it. Oxymoron Oxymoron: Describes when two juxtaposed

die, take him and cut him out in little stars,
and he will make the face of heaven so fine
that all the world will be in live with the
night and pay no worship to the garnish sun."
-Juliet Foreshadow Foreshadow: a character predicts something that will help the reader know what is going to happen later in the story. This quote has alot of relavence to the play because it
is prepareing the reader for what is to come. It is one
of the many times that Juliet shows her love towards
Romeo. The reader relizes that even if up one of them
dies their love bonds might simply get stronger. " A plague o' both your houses!" This quote is said by Mercutio when he is dying.
This quotes is important in the scene.
This is important because he is foreshadowing
what will happen to both of the houses the Capulet and
the Montague. Also with this quote Shakespeare is reminding the audience that all of these deaths and drama is only happening because of two families having disagreements. - Mercutio "Would none but I might venge
my cousin's death!" - Juliet This quote is said by Juliet when her mother announces that she (Juliet) is to wed Paris. By this time in the play Juliet has reached a level of depression that leads to her wanting to commit suicide. To make things worse there is a time limit to figure things out. All of this is relevant to the play because this leads to Juliet taking the decision of following Friar Laurence's plan. "Heaven is here,
Where Juliet lives..." - Romeo This part of the play Romeo is with Friar Lawrence at his cell. Friar Lawrence tells that Romeo has been declared Banished from Verona. Friar Lawrence recommends Romeo to go to Mantua for some time and that he'll receive a letter when he should return. Scene I Scene one involves a lot of action. In this scene Romeo, Benvolio, Mercucio, Tybalt and the Capulets get into a sword fight. Benvolio and Mercutio in a hot and sunny day waiting for a fight to happen. Then come Tybalt ready to fight Romeo . When he gets there Romeo is still not there. He has a discussion with Mercutio and Benvolio. Then Romeo appears and whenTybalt sees Romeo get ready to fight. Surprisingly Romeo doesn't want to fight. Tybalt is detemined to fight no matter what. So he decides to keep insulting Romeo. After that Mercutio as a good friends stands up for Romeo and gets into a sword fight with Tybalt. Tybalt kills Mercutio and Romeo can do nothing about it. Tybalt decides to leave. Romeo comes to the conclusion that the love that he has for Juliet has made him a weak man. So he decides to seek revenge on Tybalt. When Tybalt returns Romeo fights Tybalt and kills him. Then the citizens, The Capulets, Montague, and The Prince come and examine what has happened. Emidietly the Prince exiles Romeo. Character Change Lord Capulet: The change this character goes through is very drastic and adds a new mood to the play. He changes in scene 5 when he declares Juliet should marry Paris. When Juliet denies that she would ever marry Paris. This displeases L. Capulet and he says that he would cut off her heredity and go live in the streets if she didn't wed Paris. This is a big change because thought out the play he was always trying to make the best decisions for her daughter but that changes. Mercutio There are two changes when it comes to Mercutio. Physically Mercutio goes from being alive to being dead. Second change is that he insults the houses of Montague and Capulet, which he being a joker was a shock for all, maybe even some readers. Even though he (Mercutio) joked to the very end he was pretty serious when he insulted the houses. Scene 2 In scene two Juliet finds out about Tybalt's death and Romeos banishment. Juliet is waiting for Romeo for the night time where she and Romeo would have the last part of the marriage. The nurse comes in and tells Juliet about Tybalts death and Romeos banishment. She is sad because of Tybalts death but has more grief because of Romeo's banishment. She explains that for her banishment is worse that "ten thousands Tybalts deaths". She is confused about Romeo, she doesn't know what to believe or if he lied to her all of this time. She doesn't understand how Romeo could have killed someone so close to her. The Nurse also tells Juliet that Romeo is hiding in Friar Laurence's cell. Juliet tells the Nurse to go and find Romeo so that they can say goodbye. Juliet tells the Nurse to give him a ring. Scene 3 In scene three Romeo finds out that he is exiled. This scene takes place in Friar Laurence cell. Romeo is hiding in Friar Laurence cell after the sword fight that happened earlier. He doesn't know what his consequence is yet. When Friar Laurence comes in he tells his the bad news. Romeo is devastated he wants to die instead of being banished. He wants to committee suicide. Friar Laurence tries to calm him down and tries to think of a solution. Then the Nurse comes in. She tells Romeo how sad is Juliet of his banishment, and that she is not that sad about Tybalt but she is very sad because she might never see his loved one again. This helps Romeo get strength. Then Friar Laurence proposes a plan. The plan is that he goes and spends the night with Juliet. In the morning Romeo would leave to Mantua and will stay there until things are calm in Verona and he can be reunited with Juliet. The Nurse gives Romeo the ring and Romeo leaves to go be with Juliet. Scene 4 Scene four of act three takes place in the Capulet's house. In this scene, Paris is asking Lord Capulet for permission to marry Juliet. Paris, Load Capulet and Lady Capulet are the three characters that appear on this scene. Load Capulet tells Paris that because of the incident that happen that day (the killing of Tybalt) , they haven't discussed marriage with Juliet. Lord Capulet thought Juliet will be very happy to have the name of Paris so he tells Paris that their marriage will take place the upcoming Thursday. Lord Capulet asks Lady Capulet to tell Juliet the good news before she goes to bed. Scene 5 Scene 5 is the last scene of Act three. In this scene, Romeo and Juliet had been together for the night, discussing that it is the best thing for Romeo to flee from Verona and she told him they will soon meet again. Soon, after Romeo leaves Capulet's house, Lady Capulet saw Juliet's red eyes and believed it was of the result of her weeping for Tybalt. After, she told Juliet she has some ´good news´ for her. She told Juliet that her father has agreed to have her marry Paris at Saint Peter´s Church the next Thursday. “He shall not make me there a joyful bride!” was what Juliet said as soon as she got the news. Lord Capulet enters the room ad notices the tears and asks if Lady Capulet has already given her the news. Lady Capulet told him she had already given her the news but Juliet wants nothing to do with Paris or the marriage. Lord Capulet gets really mad of Juliet's response and threatens her that she will marry him or she will end on the street without he inheriting nothing to her. Juliet begs but he tells her that she will be at the church on Thursday even if he has to drag her to there. Juliet turns to her mother for help and her mother's words were “Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.” Juliet cries and goes to her nanny but her advice to Juliet was forget Romeo since he is banished and recommends Juliet to marry Paris. Why is act important? This act is important because it show the reality that Romeo and Juliet had to face as married couple. When they got married they maybe thought it was going to be rainbows and unicorns. In this act reality really hit. Tybalt This character changes a pretty obvious
change in the act. He goes from being
alive to being dead. He also gets a little
of regret when he murders Mercutio. Romeo Romeo starts off being very inocent.
He is constanly being mocked by Mercutio.
At one time in the play he changes
when he decides to avenge Mercutio's death. Friar Lawrence The readers think of him as a man that is honest, generous, and loving.
In this act, we realize that he can be much more than that. He was very helpful in the situation that Romeo was in, by giving him advice and creating a plan that would have saved Romeo and Juliet's marriage.
