Scene 4
Scene 5
Do Now
Prologue
Explain how you believe Romeo and Juliet might be different from West Side Story.
1 Two households, both alike in dignity,
2 In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
3 From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
4 Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
5 From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
6 A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
7 Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
8 Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
9 The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
10 And the continuance of their parents' rage,
11 Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
12 Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
13 The which if you with patient ears attend,
14 What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
Baby Romeo
Baby Juliet
Scene 1

Now that Act 1, Scene 1 is over...
Why are the two sides fighting?
Why are the citizens angry?
Why is Romeo so upset? What is it that he wants?
Homework
Complete the assignment on Edmodo due on May 1. Watch the opening scene video from West Side Story. Compare and contrast it with the Act 1, Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet.
Enter
Capulet
and
Paris
and Servant
Hint:
Paris
= Chino from West Side Story
He's supposed to marry Juliet! LOVE TRIANGLE! (almost)
=
Exeunt
Paris
and
Capulet
The Servant is illiterate!
This opens the opportunity for
Romeo
and
Benvolio
to find out about the Capulet party, where
ROSALINE
will be!
Enter
Romeo
and
Benvolio
.
Remember: We are still on day 1, and
Romeo
has NOT met
Juliet
yet.
IMPORTANT!
Rosaline
will be at the party, but so will
TYBALT
(the
Capulet
who HATES the
Montague
family and wants to kill them all).
This gun is for you, Montague.
Benvolio
has convinced
Romeo
to go to the party to show
Romeo
that his "swan" (
Rosaline
) is a "crow" (ugly).
Do Now
Explain how the fight scene from "Romeo and Juliet" the play differs from "West Side Story". (Do NOT mention dancing in any way).
Scene 3.
A room in
Capulet's
house.
Enter
LADY CAPULET
and
Nurse.
Reminder:
Maidenhead
virginity
Lady Capulet
was married young as well.
Can't understand the
Nurse
?
It's because she's low-class, uneducated, and highly BAWDY.
Bawdy:
indecent; lewd; obscene
Maid
Juliet
is a MAID and does not want to be married.
a young unmarried girl, usually a virgin.
Enter
Juliet
Reminder:
Juliet
is supposed to marry
Paris
!
Enter
Servant
(and exeunt almost immediatly!)
EXEUNT!
Comic Relief
an amusing scene, incident, or speech introduced into serious or tragic elements, as in a play, in order to provide temporary relief from tension,
This is usually provided by
Mercutio
Scene 4.
A Street.
(it's now night time, right before the party on the first day)
Enter
ROMEO
,
MERCUTIO
,
BENVOLIO
, with five or six Maskers, Torch-bearers, and others.
Wait! Why did I make
Mercutio
PURPLE?
The
CAPULET
party is a MASK (or MASQUE)
Mask/Masque
a dramatic entertainment of the 16th to 17th centuries in England, consisting of pantomime, dancing, dialogue, and song.
Is
Mercutio
on drugs? No, but he gets lost in thought on Queen Mab.
Queen Mab
a mischievous, tantalizing fairy who governs and produces people's dreams.
Mercutio's goes on a monologue about Queen Mab as a way to explain why he thinks believing that dreams have a meaning is ridiculous.
I fear, too early: for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night's revels and expire the term
Of a despised life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But He, that hath the steerage of my course,
Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen.
ROMEO
FORESHADOWING!
Exeunt!
Do Now
SCENE V. A hall in
Capulet's
house.
Musicians
waiting. Enter
Servingmen
with napkins.
Identify one decision/action someone makes in first four scenes which could lead to the tragedy that occurs at the end of the story.
Example:
In scene 1, the Montagues and the Capulets increase the tensions and anger between the two sides by fighting on the streets.
Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly.
The
Servants
are stressing over the party. Some of them are being ordered to be in two places at once.
Enter
Capulet
and
Juliet
Lord
Capulet
jokes that any of the ladies who are not dancing must have too many corns on their feet.
EW.
And
Second Capulet
Romeo
has taken notice of
Juliet
and talks about her being the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. (How quickly
Rosaline
is forgotten!)
OMG! So Hot!
Yipes!
Tybalt
noticed
Romeo
.
What?!?
Lord Capulet
DOESN'T want
Tybalt
to attack
Romeo
.
Actually, he thinks
Romeo
is a pretty nice kid with a good reputation. Fancy that.
Tybalt

vows to get revenge. This is foreshadowing!
" this intrusion shall
Now seeming sweet convert to bitter gall."
Exit
Tybalt
Remember!
Two important elements of Romantic Tragedies:
Quick Love
Excessive Love
Enter
NURSE
!
The nurse knows who
Romeo

really is.
(
Juliet
must be very sheltered to be the only one in the room to not know Romeo.)
Romeo
finds out
Juliet
is a
Capulet
! Now he's depressed again!
Enter
BENVOLIO
to drag him away!
EXEUNT all but
Juliet
and the
Nurse
!
"Go ask his name: if he be married. My grave is like to be my wedding bed."
Juliet
is foreshadowing! How?
EXEUNT ALL
My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.
Juliet's
last words here:
She believes that love cannot be changed once it happens.
PROLOGUE
This second prologue introduces the rest of the play. It explains how Romeo's previous love for Rosaline is now dead and his affections for Juliet now secured. It goes on to explain that Romeo and Juliet love each other just as extremely, but have no way of seeing each other. (But love finds a way, right?
Scene 1
(Be kind!)
Homework:
Log on to Edmodo and respond to Romeo's latest post and Juliet's latest post.
Do Now
Here's an example of what you should be doing for your 4th Quarter project. Rate their performance. (Good, bad?) Explain what they did well, and what they did poorly.

Text Questions
1. How old is Juliet?
2. Who is supposed to marry Juliet?
3. Who was Romeo in love with before he met Juliet?
4. Why was Romeo depressed about Rosaline?
Bonus:
How old is Juliet's mother? (approximate)
Everyone's leaving the party, but Romeo just can't leave. He's in LOVE!
Romeo
Juliet
Enter Romeo
Enter Benvolio with Mercutio
Where the holy maidenhead did Romeo go?
Mercutio
teases
Romeo
and his constant obsession with love. He calls
Romeo
by describing
Rosaline
and her body (rather crudely at that).
Rosaline's
quivering thigh?
Mercutio:

This cannot anger him: 'twould anger him
To raise a spirit in his mistress' circle
Of some strange nature, letting it there stand
Till she had laid it and conjured it down;
That were some spite: my invocation
Is fair and honest, and in his mistres s' name
I conjure only but to raise up him.
Translation:
Romeo
would get mad if someone else was screwin' his girl Rosaline
Medlar Fruit
An apple-like fruit best eaten and enjoyed when well aged and ripened.
Also know as the open-ass
Key Fact!
Benvolio
and

is obsessed with
Rosaline
.

These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume.

And in the taste confounds the appetite. Therefore love moderately.
Long love doth so.
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
Foreshadowing!

In Act 3, Scene 5, Juliet says:

"O God, I have an ill-divining soul!
Methinks I see thee, now thou art so low,
As one dead in the bottom of a tomb.
Either my eyesight fails or thou lookest pale." (3.5.54-57)
What does she mean by this? Why would it be considered foreshadowing?
