Introduction

Which do you think is the most interesting or dramatic scene in the play? Write about your chosen Scene in detail, giving reasons for your choice. I am going to write about Act II Scene Ii, because I think this is the most fascinating and striking scene. The feast has just taken place and Romeo has fallen in love with Juliet. The two of them found each other at the Capulets Feast, and as soon as they had set eyes on each other, they had fallen in love. After the feast, Romeo is waiting in the grounds of Capulets house. Juliet appears at the window, unaware that Romeo is there. He begins to praise her beauty, "It is my lady, O it is my love. O that she knew she were. She speaks, yet she says nothing. What of that?" Romeo then starts to list all her physical features and listens as ache begins to speak, "Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, having some business, do entreat her eyes. ...read more.

Members of her family, Tybalt for instance would not be merciful to him. Romeo laughs this off, saying that he is willing to risk everything for her, and they begin to vow their love for each other. Juliet, then asks Romeo, if he loves her, as she loves him, she wants a simple answer. She worries that Romeo, thinks she is being too forward. "O swear not by the moon, th` inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circled orb, Lest that thy love prove likewise variable." Romeo then begs her at least exchange vows of love with him. The nurse of the Capulet family then calls Juliet away. When Juliet returns, she says that she will send a messenger to Romeo that day to arrange a time and place where they can be married, She then goes in to the house. A moment later, Juliet returns; she has forgotten to fix a time which Romeo will meet her messenger. "What o'clock tomorrow shall I send to thee? ...read more.

Conclusion

As the scene progresses Juliet's character remains as same, being practical and focused about her views. She replies to Romeos positive comments with control emotion and confidence. For example "O swear not by the moon, th'inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circled orb, Lest that thy love prove likewise variable". Another fine example of controlled emotion and practicality is "This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet". Eventually the nurse interrupts and Juliet becomes anxious. She tries to hurriedly finish her conversation. I chose this scene ,because it has brought Romeo and Juliet together, and I feel that it's the most important scene of the play. It's the main point of the story, because they are expressing their love to each other, and its sets the rest of the play off. Both Romeo and Juliet are deeply in love and they both want their future together, but is this going to happen? This scene breaks the story into a crunching start, and this is where all the excitement begins! Alex Turner 10IPR ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
