Transcript of Romeo and Juliet - Act 3

Act 3 By: Sabrina, Arani,
Ryan, Kabir, Jason, and Surya Romeo & Juliet Scene 5 Summary: Juliet’s nurse brings news of Tybalt’s death by Romeo’s hand.
Purpose: Juliet is at first happily waiting for news on her husband from the nurse. When the nurse comes in she reveals some unfortunate news, Tybalt has been slayed by her beloved. This scene showed the reaction and denial of Juliet towards the Nurse’s accusations. This basically caused another problem to unravel which dealt with a once obedient girl who has started to deny everyone that has taught her the morals she was supposed to believe in.
Quote: Juliet: “My husband lives that Tybalt would have slain, And Tybalt’s dead that would have slain my husband:” Scene 2 Scene 3 Summary: The marriage between Juliet and Paris is moved up because her father thinks Juliet is depressed about Tybalt’s death and proposes that the marriage would make her happy.
Purpose: This scene is about the marriage being pushed forward for Paris and Juliet. The marriage has been moved up to the following Thursday. Before this scene Juliet has been devastated to the series of events that occurred recently. The Capulet believed that with this marriage Juliet will cheer up.
Quote: Capulet: “A’Thursday let it be a’Thursday, tell her, she shall be married to this noble earl.” Scene 4 Summary: Lady Capulet informs Juliet about the marriage. Juliet rather faces death than have Paris take her hand in marriage.
Purpose: This is the scene where Romeo and Juliet believe to be parting indefinitely. After Romeo leaves, Juliet is called upon by the Nurse, notifying her that Lady Capulet is coming to her chamber. When Lady Capulet walks in she brings up the marriage expecting a blissful reaction but receives the opposite. Juliet’s first major protest causes her parents and the Nurse to forcefully make the decision themselves thinking she is still in the mourning stage of Tybalt’s death.
Quote: Lady Capulet “Marry, my child, early next Thursday morn, the gallant, young, and noble gentlemen, the County Paris, at Saint Peter’s Church, shall happily make thee there a joyful bride.” Summary: Tybalt tries to pick a fight with the Montague. This act, results in Mercutio’s death causing Romeo to avenge his death by killing Tybalt. Now that Tybalt is dead Romeo is now facing the consequence which is banishment to Mantua.
Purpose: This scene is the scene where the most significant problem of all is introduced. It is the climax of the entire story. Due to Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment, the consequences start to unravel creating more problems for the two lovers. Romeo’s sudden outburst towards Mercutio’s death overruled his conscience causing him to act before he thought of the outcome.
Quote: Romeo: “Staying for thine to keep him company.
Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.”

“He’s waiting for you to keep him company on the way up to heaven. Either you, or I, or both of
us have to go with him.”
This quote is the most significant one in this act because it signifies Romeo’s belief that Mercutio’s soul has not yet dispersed, but instead is waiting for one or both of them to accompany to the afterlife. While he says this quote, Romeo has decided this fight won’t end till ones blood is spilt. Scene One Summary: Tybalt tries to pick a fight with the Montague. This act, results in Mercutio’s death causing Romeo to avenge his death by killing Tybalt. Now that Tybalt is dead Romeo is now facing the consequence which is banishment to Mantua. Summary: Friar Lawrence and the Nurse try to control Romeo’s outburst and convinces him to say his farewell to Juliet.
Purpose: Everything in Romeo’s world has become grey, he is no longer allowed to stay in Verona, which he believes there is no other life outside the walls of Verona. Friar Lawrence plays a major role in this scene because he opens Romeo’s eyes and gives him hope that this might not be the last meeting with his family. But the Nurse has told Romeo to go and say his farewells to Juliet in case he is unable to return in the future and let her go marry another.
Quote: Friar Lawrence: “Here from Verona art thou banished. Be patient, for the world is broad and wide.” Nurse with the news Romeo crying Juliet after hearing about the marriage Discussing the marriage Literacy Devices:

Oxymoron: “A damned saint, an honourable villain!” (Scene 2, Pg. 69, Line 79)
This literary device shows Juliet’s description of Romeo after hearing the news of his murder.

Personification: “Can heaven be so envious?” (Scene 2, Pg. 68, Line 40)
This literary device describes Heaven as if it had emotions. It described the jealousy Heaven showed which fate determined that only one person can live on this earth while the other must perish.

Pun: “Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man.” (Scene 1, Pg. 63, Line 93)
This literary device shows that a word that sounds similar to one another can have different meanings. In this quote ‘Grave’ is used as a substitute for the emotion grave or an actual Grave. Purpose: This scene is the scene where the most significant problem of all is introduced. It is the climax of the entire story. Due to Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment, the consequences start to unravel creating more problems for the two lovers. Romeo’s sudden outburst towards Mercutio’s death overruled his conscience causing him to act before he thought of the outcome. Romeo: “Staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” “He’s waiting for you to keep him company on the way up to heaven. Either you, or I, or both of us have to go with him.”This quote is the most significant one in this act because it signifies Romeo’s belief that Mercutio’s soul has not yet dispersed, but instead is waiting for one or both of them to accompany him to the afterlife. While he says this quote, Romeo has decided this fight won’t end till ones blood is spilled. Romeo killing Tybalt Quote
