Romeo and Juliet Act 2
Transcript of Romeo and Juliet Act 2
Romeo and Juliet meet at the Capulet Feast.
They share their first kiss.
Romeo sneaks into her garden and under the moonlight, Romeo and Juliet exchange vows of love.
Act Two is the rising action. What complications might arise now that Romeo and Juliet have met? Friar Laurence: a priest
cell: a small humble dwelling or a little home
Scene 3 Mercutio wonders where Romeo is. Benvolio says that Tybalt has sent a challenge to Romeo, and Mercutio scornfully describes Tybalt as a conceited killer. Mercutio kids Romeo about love, and Romeo joins in the bawdy banter. Mercutio rudely mocks the Nurse, who tells Romeo that she wants a word in private with him. The Nurse complains about Mercutio, receives from Romeo the information about the time and place of the wedding, then chatters on about how sweet Juliet is. Scene 4 Juliet impatiently awaits the return of the Nurse with news from Romeo. The Nurse teases Juliet by finding all kinds of ways to not deliver the joyful news, but finally tells her that she is to go to Friar Laurence's cell to be married to Romeo. Scene 5 The Wedding At dawn Friar Laurence gathers herbs and comments on how in both plants and people everything has some good, and every good can be abused and turned to evil. Romeo appears and tells Friar Laurence that he has fallen in love with Juliet and wants him to marry them. The Friar criticizes Romeo for jumping so quickly from love of Rosaline to love of Juliet, but agrees to perform the ceremony because he thinks that the marriage may end the hatred between the Capulets and Montagues. The "Messenger" Nurse Just before the wedding, Friar Laurence advises Romeo to love moderately.
"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder (gunpowder)"-Friar
Romeo and Juliet tell each other how much they love one another, and
Friar Laurence leads them off to be married.
"Sweet, sweet, sweet
nurse, tell me,
what says my love?"
