Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Scene 2

Shakespeare uses images of light and brightness to create certain feelings. Notice how Romeo uses these kinds of images when he talks to Juliet. Write three examples in which Romeo compares Juliet’s beauty to something that is light. A. “It is the east, and Juliet is the sun”B. “The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars as daylight doth a lamp”C. “Her eye in heaven would through the airy region stream so bright that birds would sing and think it were not night”
Romeo, who has been hiding in the orchard, calls out to Juliet. Juliet speaks to him form her balcony. Why is she worried about Romeo? Because if any of her relatives find him there they’ll kill him because of who he is.
How does Romeo claim to have entered the Capulet’s property? Copy down the line(s) that show this. “I flew over these walls with the light wings of love.”
What does Juliet ask Romeo to do to prove his love to her? He has to make plans to marry her. He needs to find a place and choose a time they will be married and let her know the next day.
During the balcony scene Juliet says, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet. So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called, retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title.”Is it only their names that separate Romeo and Juliet? If Romeo should change his name, do you think their problems would be solved? Explain your answer No, their parents separate them, her being a Capulet and him being a Montague separates them too, etc. No, because he can’t change how he look so, people would recognize his face, voice, etc. Also, his friends seen him go over that orchard walls so they would have suspicion.
