Gcse coursework Shakespeare makes very interesting in act 1 scene 5 the importance of this scene is that two lovers take their life. the two lovers meet on the party that was held by Capulet. (Paris a kinsman of the prince) Paris is anxious to marry Capulet daughter Juliet, and Capulet favor this union, as it will give his family more power in the city but Capulet say (she hath not seen the change of fourteen years let two more summer wither in their pride ere we may think her ripe to be a bride) Capulet say to Paris that Juliet is not yet fourteen and he ask Paris to wait two years.

come, musicians, play. A hall, a hall! give room! and foot it, girls. Music plays, and they dance More light, you knaves; and turn the tables up, And quench the fire, the room is grown too hot. Ah, sirrah, this unlook'd-for sport comes well. Nay, sit, nay, sit, good cousin Capulet; For you and I are past our dancing days: How long is't now since last yourself and I Were in a mask?

Conclusion

There is much slower pace in this section as Shakespeare has used the sonnet from with rhyming couplets to emphasis the love and romantic nature of the scene, within the sonnet he uses many contrast to highlight Romeos obsession with Juliet: So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows, As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows Romeo is in a total world of his own, enraptured by the stunning beauty of Juliet. this creates a romantic but also dangerous mood in the scene as the audiences watch with anticipation and ask will they be caught? Romeo has fallen in love with Juliet,benvolio`splan has worked,benveleos plan was to get romeo to experience other beuties or compare other women to Rosaline. I find this hard to believe that romeo could instantly fall in love with Juliet by her looks alone.even harder to believe,is that if he was truly in love with Rosaline,he wouldn't have been able to drop her like a bad habit and go looking for a new girlfriend the same night.if he were truly in love with Rosaline,he would have been crushed,torn a distraught over their breakup and wouldn't have gone out looking for other girls. Romeo was in love with being in love,he had to have a girlfriend who he could say meant the world to him ...read more.
