Middle

Juilet uses the imagine of a rose to emphasise this by saying ''may prove a beauteous flower when we next meet'' this shows the audience that she really loves him. Juliet reacts to Romeo when he was listening into her inner thoughts by acting really angry with him but really she is embarrassed you can tell this by the way she says '' come to thy heart as that within my breast'' that shows she is not wanting any one to hear what she says by the way she is talking. Romeo diverts Juliet's attention away from her being annoyed at him for listening in by saying ''I take thee at thy word''. This shows that he is agreeing with what she said, he plactes her by saying ''with loves light wings did is o-er-perch these walls'' which shows that he wants to be more loving with her. ...read more.

Conclusion

The outlook for the couple's relationships at the end of this scene is that it may work or may not but they have managed to sneak around being together and haven't got caught yet and they have already said that they are getting married. It may not go to well because both of their families do not get on with each other and it they get caught they will be in serious trouble. With reference to the beginning of the play the audience will be feeling upset because they know what is going to happen to remeoJuliet, which makes it worse because they are in so much love and they don't know anything is going to happen to them. The dramatic irony in this scene is when the audience notice what is going to happen to Romeo and Juliet, which is death and what makes it, worse is that Romeo and Juliet don't realise. ...read more.
