Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Act 2 Scenes 1 & 2 By Erin Salona Act 2, Prologue Summarizes Act 1 Addresses the speed in which Romeo and Juliet have fallen in love Makes fun at the way in which Romeo abandoned Rosaline quickly for Juliet Now old desire doth in his death-bed lie, And young affection gapes to be his heir; That fair for which love groan'd for and would die, With tender Juliet match'd, is now not fair.

Act 2, Scene 1 Romeos friends, Mercutio Mercutio calls out to and Benvolio, go looking for Romeo. They think that Romeo is still in love with Rosaline. Benvolio and Mercutio do not know that Romeo is headed to the Capulet orchard. They do not know Romeo is now in love with Juliet Romeo in search of him by teasing him about Rosalines seductive beauty. Romeo hides.

Benvolio asks that he leave Romeo alone. After much joking around, Mercutio and Benvolio give ght eyes, bribed. 's e n li a s o up and go home to R e e by : I conjure th p,

li That in thy Act 2, Scene 1 Romeo symbolically separates from his friends in this scene when he jumps over the Capulet wall. He cannot let his friends know he is in love with Juliet. For Mercutio, love is a physical conquest. Mercutio is Romeos foil in that Romeo views love romantically & spiritually. Act 2, Scenes 1 & 2 Romeo describes Juliet

in terms of light images. Juliet is the sun, a torch, bright angel Juliet = light & truth Rosaline = darkness & moon Romeo has moved beyond darkness to light Act 2, Scene 2 The Famous Balcony Scene Romeo climbs over the Capulets garden wall and hides in the garden below Juliets window. He cant decide to speak or listen Romeo: Shall I hear more, or

shall I speak at this Act 2, Scene 2 Romeo overhears Juliet talking to herself in her famous soliloquy Her monologue lets Romeo know she is interested in him Juliet says that she will Juliet: What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet; So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd, Retain that dear perfection which he owes Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name, And for that name which is no part of thee Take all myself. disown her family so she can be with Romeo. Juliet hates the name

Montague not the person Romeo. Act 2, Scene 2 Romeo answers Juliet. Romeo is willing to change his name just to be with Juliet and says that Juliets family cannot stop their love. Juliet says that she is afraid that her family will kill Romeo if they find him. Romeo replies: I have night's cloak to hide me from their sight; And but thou love me, let them find me here: My life were better ended by their hate, Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love.

Act 2, Scene 2 Romeo says he would rather die than live without Juliet. After hearing Romeo speak words of love, Juliet wonders if their love came too quickly and easily. Act 2, Scene 2 Juliet doesnt want Romeo to promise that he loves her; she wants him to prove it through his actions by proposing marriage! Romeo proposes and

Juliet accepts. Juliet says that if Romeo is serious about marriage, he must go and arrange the wedding. They have not known each other 24 hours! Act 2, Scene 2 Notice the scenes in which Romeo and Juliet are together are dark. Darkness = secrecy Romeo must leave Juliet when it becomes light. Light = truth & exposure (their families are natural enemies)

Act 2, Scene 2 Romeo views Juliet as a very pure; he uses religious imagery by calling her dear saint and bright angel. Romeo says he will have the wedding arranged by 9:00 am. Romeo goes to the Friar to arrange the marriage. Juliet promises to follow Romeo through the world after marriage no matter what. FORESHADOWING Works Cited
