Introduction

DW1 Mount St Mary's High school Mandlenkosi Ronald Maposa Introduction Romeo and Juliet deals with the universal theme of love, hate, family feuds and teenage rebellion. Its one of Shakespeare's most popular plays because it is timeless and appeals to people of all age. The audience look forward to this scene because they want to fine out if Romeo will see Rosaline and if the maskers will be discovered. 1) Capulet is relaxed at first and is happy about all guests. He teases them. He is not bothered about Romeo coming. He is happy and jokes with the women, "ladies that have toes unplagu'd with corns will walk about with you". This is a friendly talk a way to tease politely. 2) It is getting dark and hot and Capulet ordered the servants to put on more light. This shows that the party was good and they were all enjoying. Capulet and his cousin discuss their day's maskers and said it was now past their dancing days. ...read more.
