Romeo and Juliet Acts 2-3 Test

The fight between the families specifically, Tybalt and Mercutio fighting and then Tybalt and Romeo fighting. In the opening of Act III, Benvolio says, “these days are hot, and the mad blood stirring.” What could this forshadow?
Tybalt stabs him underneath Romeo’s arm. How does Mercutio die?
Mercutio- A curse or shame on both the Montagues and the Capulets. Because of your fighting, I am now playing the price with my life. Who says “A plague o’ both your houses!” ? What does it mean?
He is now family to Tybalt after marrying Juliet. Mercutio is also his best friend. He wants to honor them both. Why does Romeo attempt to stop the fighting between Tybalt and Mercutio?
Woo is to get at someone’s heart; to find a way to love them and woe is great sadness. What is the irony in woo and woe?
He is worried they will be seen in public and the prince has told them that if someone fights, he/she will pay with their life. Benvolio does not want Tybalt and Mercutio to fight. Why?
Romeo Who kills Tybalt?
Banishment for Romeo. He must leave Verona and go to Mantua. If he is found in Verona, he wil be killed. After discovering both Tybalt and Mercutio dead, what punishment does the Prince give?
Juliet Who says, “Take him and cut him into little stars and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.”
The Nurse Who tells Juliet of Romeo’s banishment?
She is upset and hurt that Romeo has killed Tybalt. She is saying all men lie, cheat, are dishonest. You can’t trust any of them. Why does the nurse believe, “There’s no faith, no trust, no honesty in men. All perjured. All forsworn, All naught, All dissemblers.”
Death Romeo can’t believe he has been banished from Verona. What would Romeo rather have as a punishment?
It is like “slaying ten thousand Tybalts. It is father, mother, Juliet, Romeo, Tybalt, All slain. All dead.” It is like killing her entire family or having Tybalt dead 10,000 times. Banishment is much worse than death. What is Romeo’s banishment like for Juliet?
Go to Juliet one more time, but leave before morning. He will try to get things smoothed over and send a messenger to tell Romeo what has gone on and when/if he can return to Verona. What does the Friar tell Romeo to do after the banishment is revealed?
Romeo’s death. He looks pale and dead like he is in a tomb. When Romeo leaves Juliet chamber, she says, “Methinks I see thee now, thou art so low as one dead in the bottom of a tomb.” What could this foreshadow?
When an actor/actress stands alone on stage to reveal the truth to the audience. What is a soliloquy?
Juliet tells the Nurse she is going to Friar Lawrence’s cell to confession because she has upset her father. In her solioquy, we (tha audience) learn she is going to the Friar’s for help or advice about the marriage to Paris or she will take her own life. What is an example of a soliloquy from the end of Act III?
She will marry Paris on Thursday. What news does Father and Lady Capulet bring to Juliet?
She is upset and refuses to marry him. This starts an argument with her father who says he will disown her if she does not do as he asks. How does Juliet take the news of the marriage to Paris?
You might as well marry Paris. He is a good-looking, well- to-do man and Romeo is banished and there is not much they can do about it. So, marry Paris. What solution does the nurse have for Juliet at the end of Act III?
Mercutio Thou art like one of those fellows that when he enters the confines of a tavern, claps me his sword upon the table and says, “God send me no need of thee” and, by the operation of the second cup, draws him on the drawer when indeed there is no need”.
Tybalt Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford no better term than this: thou art a villain.
Romeo I do protest I never injured thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise, Till thou shalt know the reason my love, and so , good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as mine own, be satisfied.

Capulet Sir Paris, i will make desperate tender of my child’s love. I think she will be ruled in all respects by me… oh Thursday let it be!
Paris My lord, i would that thursday were tomorrow.
Romeo It was the lark, the herald of the morn. No nightingale. Look love what envious streaks do lace the swerving clouds in yonder east. I must be gone and live, or stay and die.
Romeo More light and light, more dark and dark our woes
Juliet As one dead in the bottom of a tomb, either my eyesight fails or thou lookest pale
Juliet O fortune, fortune all men call thee fickle.
Lady Capulet Some grief show much of love, but much grief shows still some want (lacking) of wit.
Lady Capulet Shall give him such an unaccustomed dram that he shall soon keep Tybalt company. and then, I hope, thou wilt be satisfied.
Juliet I will not marry yet, and yet if i do i swear it shall be Romeo, whom you know i hate, rather than Paris
