Romeo and Juliet
Act 3, Scene 2
In Act 3.2, Juliet is awaiting the Nurse to arrive with the rope ladder for Romeo tonight. Juliet is dreaming and thinking about tonight and how she is nervous about having sex with Romeo. She makes the comparison with night and how night now stands for protection for both her and Romeo and the sun and daylight are death. Earlier, the night represented death and the sun was Juliet's beauty.The Nurse comes in screaming that he is dead. Juliet thinks that romeo is dead and The Nurse is talking about Tybalt. Once the confusion has cleared up and the Nurse explains what has happened, Juliet says that having Romeo banished is 1,000 times worse than hearing her family is killed. She says that she will kill herself if she can't be with Romeo. The Nurse says she knows where Romeo is hiding and will go to Friar Lawrence's cell to get Romeo and bring Romeo to Juliet for them to consecrate their marriage.
