Transcript of Copy of Romeo and Juliet Tone and Mood Analysis

The mood in Romeo's last scene, is seen as passionate. The quote, " And, lips, O you The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss" (V, iii, 122) show Romeo's passionate feelings towards Juliet even after he thinks she has died. In the fight scene between Romeo and Paris, in Act V, the mood is very angry. This quote,
"Can vengeance be pursued further than death?
Condemnèd villain, I do apprehend thee.
Obey and go with me, for thou must die"
(V, iii, 55-57) shows Paris's anger towards
Romeo because he believes that Romeo will harm Juliets body. Both of these quotes set the mood for the scene.
The mood in the end of Act V, scene iii can be described as somber, dismal, or despairing. The quote," A glooming peace this morning with it brings.
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head.
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things.
Some shall be pardoned, and some punishèd.
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo"(V, iii, 305-310) shows the dismal, despairing mood after Romeo and Juliet's death. Although their death is very tragic, it reconciles the Montague and Capulet families so that they no longer feud with each other.
Tone and Mood
Tone is the attitude of the author toward his or her audience and subject. The tone can often be described by one adjective, such as: romantic, violent, or passionate.
Mood, also known as atmosphere, is the feeling created in the reader by a literary work or passage. The mood is often suggested with descriptive details. Like tone, mood can also be described with one word.
Romeo and Juliet Tone and Mood Analysis
Act V

The tone in act 5, scene 3 can be described as depressing or unhappy. The quote, "for thou must die' 'I must indeed, and therefore came I hither.
Good gentle youth, tempt not a desperate man.
Fly hence and leave me. Think upon these gone.
Let them affright thee. I beseech thee, youth,
Put not another sin upon my head
By urging me to fury. O, be gone!
By heaven, I love thee better than myself,
For I come hither armed against myself" (V, iii, 57-65) shows the negative feeling the author has towards Romeo's despairing attitude and upcoming death.
