Transcript of Romeo and Juliet Tension

Act 1- Exposition Act 5- Denoument Act 2- Rising Action Act 3- Crisis/Turning Point Act 4 This act is effective because it portrays the location that the play takes place in “Fair Verona” it also creates an atmosphere of love because of Romeo’s feelings towards Rosaline and Juliet. It also creates an atmosphere of hate because of the rivalry between the Capulet’s and Montague’s. The main characters are also introduced. They are Capulet, Montague, Prince, Benvolio, Romeo, Paris, Juliet and Nurse. Act 1 also creates a problem, as the Montague’s and Capulet’s are rivals. There is a conflict between them. Prince threatens that their lives will be taken if the conflict continues. However the problem worsens when the rival families' children fall in love. Act 2 is effective because it introduces new complications in to the plot, such as Romeo and Juliet’s marriage. However the real complication occurs at the end of act 1 when Romeo and Juliet met, so act 2 doesn’t completely fit the structured plan. The second bullet points also do not occur in Act 2; (‘both sides embark on courses of action in opposition to each other’ and ‘both sides move to a crisis in a series of alternative advances and reserves’). Act 3 contains an affective crisis in which two people from the opposite families are killed. Tybalt kills Mercutuio, Romeo friend and Romeo kills Tybalt, who is Juliet’s cousin. This I tension between the opposite houses. It is also affective because the killings are action which cannot be reversed and prince puts in a solution where Romeo is vanished. Act 4 is effective because the tension points are consequences of pervious crisis. This is apparent because Juliet refuses to marry Paris as she is already married to Romeo although this is unknown to her father. She decides to fake commit suicide which will eventually lead to her and Romeo being together. This action will prevent Juliet from marring pairs which could be called the “downfalls of the forces of evil” and as she will get to be with Romeo it appears thwart the forces of good will have victory. Act 5 is and effective resolution because the problem is solved satisfactorily. The problem is solved because the Montagues and the Capulets end their rivalry. The characters are justly punished, an example of this is that Paris dies, and the Montagues and Capulets each lose a child because of their feud. However the Act does not have normal conditions restored because of a removal of crime, they are restored because of Romeo and Juliet’s death. Romeo is lovesick for
