Montagues and Capulets feel guilty; their feud was finally resolved Symbolism Sword - Violence Poison - Death Holy Palmer's Kiss - Love Allegory Love as religious worship "Call me but love and I'll be new baptized", Romeo loves Juliet in a religious way. He even calls her a saint. Thumb biting "Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?" "I do bite my thumb, sir", the servants have really no intention of insulting other servants but they are already affected by their masters' feud. Plants and Poison Based on what Friar Lawrence said the flower depends on how you will use it. It could be poisonous or healing.

all Montagues and Thee" Irony Situational Irony We didn't expect the star-crossed lover would be together in a different way Dramatic Irony Juliet was not really dead and only asleep but then Romeo took his life. Influence West Side Story Two lovers caught between the feuds of the two street gangs. The balcony scene is really close in Romeo and Juliet. Gnomeo and Juliet Same story but sort of a comedy because it is made for children Point of View The novel "Romeo and Juliet" has multiple point of views because it is not only a novel but also a play. Tone "Here's much to do with hate, but more with love," As a reader you could already feel that the story is about love but this quote says that it's not the typical love story with a happy ending.
