Summative Project by: Rachel Spencer
When Romeo and Juliet meet they fall love.They secretly get married soon after.Juliets parents want her to get married to Paris,but Juliet refuses to. After that Juliet fakes her death,hoping the wedding with Paris would be cancelled. Due to bad communication, Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and kills himself.When Juliet wakes up she sees Romeo dead, she stabs herself because she doesnt want to live without him.The theme is that a person must be with who they really love no matter what happens.
Act one,scene one
In act one,scene one, Romeo is speaking to Benvolio telling him about his feelings and confusion about his love. Benvolio tells him to go to the party.In the play it states,"Alas that love, whose view is muffled still,should without eyes see the pathways to his will."(pg.999,lines 181-182).This relates to the theme because Romeo loves Rosaline but Rosaline doesnt love Romeo back.Romeo goes to the party to see how Rosaline compares to other woman, and there he meets Juliet.
Act two,scene two
In this part of the play Juliet is talking to Romeo on her balcony,asking him why he has to be a Montague.In the text it states,"O Romeo,Romeo! Where art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name! Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet."(pg. 1023,lines 35-38) Juliet is saying that she will not be a Capulet anymore if she cant be with Romeo because Juliet loves him. She is supposed to hate the Montagues.
Act three,scene five
During act three,scene five it states, " I will not marry yet;and when I do,I swear it shall be Romeo."(pg.1067, lines 135- 136) Juliet is speaking to her mother telling her that she will not marry Paris.However, her mother doesn't know that she loves Romeo and is already married to him.Her father is very mad at her because he thinks that marrying Paris is what's best for her.
In Act five,scene three Romeo see's that Juliet is "dead". After he see's her laying there he drinks the poison to kill himself.In the text it states,"Here's to my love! O true apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss i die."(pg.1096,lines 122-123) This relates to the theme of a person must be with who they really love no matter what, because Romeo thinks that if he cant be with Juliet then he should not live and die along with her.
