Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Assessment
Transcript of Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Assessment
Period 5 Act 3 Romeo and Juliet Assessment Introduction In Act Three of Romeo and Juliet it starts out with a fight between Romeo and Tybalt. Tybalt killed Mercutio so then Romeo decided to fight Tybalt. After Romeo kills Tybalt he is exiled. Romeo wants to kill himself but the Nurse and the Friar convince him to stay alive. Then the Friar tells Romeo to go visit Juliet and leave for Mantua in the morning. Juliet doesn't want him to leave but she realizes it is safer for Romeo to leave. Juliet is very sad about Romeo but she acts like she is mourning the death of her family member. In fact, Juliet is so sad Lady Capulet tells her that she is going to send someone with poison to Mantua to kill Romeo. Juliet tells her mother that she would like to bring the poison to Romeo herself. Next, Capulet decides that Juliet will marry Paris even though Juliet refuses and threatens to kill herself. Soliloquy Metaphor Monologue Simile Conclusion Definitions The literary and drama devices I will analyze is a soliloquy, monologue, metaphor, and a simile. A soliloquy is when one character is alone on stage giving a speech. A monologue is when one character speaks alone but there are other characters on the stage. A metaphor is when you compare two things without using like or as. Last, a simile is a comparison using like or as. "Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,
Toward Phoebus' lodging. Such a wagoner
As Phaeton would whip you to the west
And bring in cloudy night immediately.
Spread thy close curtain, love-performing night,
That runaways' eyes may wink, and Romeo
Leap to these arms, untalked of and unseen.
Lovers can see to do their amorous rites
By their own beauties, or, if love be blind,
It best agrees with night. Come, civil night,
Thou sober-suited matron, all in black,
And learn me how to lose a winning match
Played for a pair of stainless maidenhoods.
Hood my unmanned blood bating in my cheeks,
With thy black mantle, till strange love, grow bold,
Think true love acted simple modesty.
Come, night. Come, Romeo. Come, thou day in night,
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow upon a raven’s back.
Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,
Give me my Romeo. And when I shall 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 love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
Oh, I have bought the mansion of a love,
But not possessed it, and though I am sold,
Not yet enjoyed. So tedious is this day
As is the night before some festival
To an impatient child that hath new robes
And may not wear them." Meaning In this soliloquy Juliet is talking about Romeo. She is basically saying that she wishes the night would hurry up and come so she can be with her husband. Analysis "Hold thy desperate hand.
Art thou a man? Thy form cries out thou art.
Thy tears are womanish. Thy wild acts denote
The unreasonable fury of a beast.
Unseemly woman in a seeming man,
And ill-beseeming beast in seeming both!
Thou hast amazed me. By my holy order,
I thought thy disposition better tempered.
Hast thou slain Tybalt? Wilt thou slay thyself,
And slay thy lady that in thy life lives
By doing damnèd hate upon thyself?
Why rail’st thou on thy birth, the heaven, and earth?
Since birth and heaven and earth, all three do meet
In thee at once, which thou at once wouldst lose?
Fie, fie, thou shamest thy shape, thy love, thy wit,
Which, like a usurer, abound’st in all
And usest none in that true use indeed
Which should bedeck thy shape, thy love, thy wit.
Thy noble shape is but a form of wax,
Digressing from the valor of a man;
Thy dear love sworn but hollow perjury,
Killing that love which thou hast vowed to cherish;
Thy wit, that ornament to shape and love,
Misshapen in the conduct of them both,
Like powder in a skill-less soldier’s flask,
Is set afire by thine own ignorance;
And thou dismembered with thine own defence.What, rouse thee, man! Thy Juliet is alive,For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead—
There art thou happy. Tybalt would kill thee,
But thou slew’st Tybalt—there art thou happy.
The law that threatened death becomes thy friend
And turns it to exile—there art thou happy.
A pack of blessings light upon thy back,
Happiness courts thee in her best array,
But, like a misbehaved and sullen wench,
Thou pout’st upon thy fortune and thy love.
Take heed, take heed, for such die miserable.
Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed.
Ascend her chamber, hence, and comfort her.
But look thou stay not till the watch be set,
For then thou canst not pass to Mantua,
Where thou shalt live, till we can find a time
To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends,
Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back
With twenty hundred thousand times more joy
Than thou went’st forth in lamentation.—
Go before, Nurse. Commend me to thy lady,
And bid her hasten all the house to bed,
Which heavy sorrow makes them apt unto.
Romeo is coming." Meaning In this monologue Friar Lawrence is saying that Romeo needs to stop acting like a girl and appreciate the fact that he is alive and was only exiled. He tells Romeo not to think about suicide. The Friar tells Romeo that if he just leaves for now then at the right time he will reveal Romeo and Juliet's marriage. Friar Lawrence thinks that this will dissolve the family feud and Romeo will be allowed back it Verona. Analysis "Come, night, come, Romeo, come, thou day in night;For thou wilt lie upon the wings of nightWhiter than new snow on a raven's back." Meaning In this metaphor Juliet is comparing Romeo's brightness to the darkness of the night in which he is coming in. Analysis Meaning This simile is comparing a stupid solider who sets off his gun on accident to Romeo and his carelessness. "Like powder in a skill-less soldier’s flask,
Is set afire by thine own ignorance;" Analysis The motivation behind this
soliloquy is to show us how Juliet has passionate feelings for Romeo. It is important because it also shows her anticipation of their future relationship. This impacts the reader because it demonstrates that Juliet's love for Romeo is the most important thing in her life. The motivation for this monologue was to show that Romeo is so in love that he is saying stupid things like how he wants to kill himself. In reality it is only making things worse for their relationship. The importance of this monologue is that it foreshadows Romeo's suicide due to how in love he is. The impact this has on the reader is that they are aware that Romeo is losing self control despite the fact that the Friar is explaining to him that he has other options besides suicide. I think that Shakespeare used this metaphor to show how important Romeo is to Juliet. His brightness represents how he brings her happiness. Also, even though it is night his presence lights up her world. The impact this has on the reader is that it shows them that Romeo is the only thing that Juliet really cares about in her life. I think that Shakespeare used this simile to show how Romeo's love and passion for Juliet is becoming dangerous. This love could cause him to harm himself and ultimately Juliet if he continues with this self-destructive behavior. The impact this has on the reader is that they will understand that Romeo is his own worst enemy. All of these quotes are important because they show the great love that Romeo and Juliet have for each other. The quotes tell the reader that their love is the most important thing in each others lives and that they would rather die than not be together.
