6) Why does Romeo refuse to fight Paris? Which other character does this echo in the play? Soliloquy
A long speech spoken by a character where they reveal their thoughts and emotions to the audience but not to the other characters. They are often speaking alone on stage.
Why is Romeo's final soliloquy so important?
Dramatic irony (when the audience is aware of something that the character on stage is not)
As the audience, we are left internally struggling with this scene because we know that Juliet is truly alive but in a drug induced coma. How is this use of dramatic irony effective in building up tension?
How is tension developed and released in this scene?

in your books and label it.

How does the building of suspense help our understanding of strong feelings? How else does Shakespeare use
irony in this scene? Their death brings an end to the civil
argument between the two warring families.

unites them, but in the end it was their
death. Homework - Answer these questions in full sentences:
