Romeo and Juliet – Hate

(Act 5, Scene3) Mercutio: “A plague a’both houses!” He is doing it because he’s hurt and he wants something bad to happen to the families. Also he was injured and wants both houses (Capulet and Montague) as well as foreshadowing what’s going to happen.
(Act 5, Scene3) Prince: “Kill your joys with love.” Juxtaposition. The princes saying that love is what killed both Romeo and Juliet (the family feuds). Using “kill” is an example of violent imagery and death.
(Act 3, Scene 1) Tybalt: “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries That thou hast done me, therefore turn and …..” Draw
(Act 5, Scene 3) Prince: Where be these enemies? Capulet, Montague? See what scourge is laid upon your….” Hate
(Act 5, Scene 3) Prince: “For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo” Without the hate between the 2 families, Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t be dead (links to prologue- “with their death bury their parents’ strife”. This is where they don’t actually realise how big the feud between the families until both Romeo and Juliet die and how out of control it’s got. (Foreshadowing the future). Also rhyming couplet (woe, Romeo)
(Act3 ,Scene1 )Tybalt: “Romeo, the love I bear thee afford No better term than this: thou art a villain “ Juxtaposition (love/hate). “No better term” suggesting that there isn’t anything to describe him (Romeo) by calling him a villain. “Villain” – saying that Romeo is evil and believes that all the Montague are the same. Also, Romeo turned up uninvited to the Capulet ball so Tybalt was annoyed.
(Act 1, Scene 1) Gregory (capulet) : “The ….. is between our masters and us their men” Quarrel
(Act 1, scene1) Romeo : “O brawling love, O loving hate” What this is an example of and how does this link to hate? Example – Juxtaposition. It links to hate because he can’t understand what love is and it’s hurting and tormented him inside. Also he feels torn.
(Act3,scene1) Romeo ” Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” Romeo is threatening Tybalt that someone must go and join Mercutio (who’s dead) and go to heaven.
(Act3,scene3) Benvolio: “the unlucky manage of this fatal braw[…] slain by Romeo, that slew thy kinsmen brave Mercutio “ “Fatal braw” – It was a deadly fight between Mercutio, Tybalt and Romeo. Benvolio was feeling the Prince the truth.
“Civil blood makes civil hands unclean” – prologue Use of violent imagery
(Act 1,Scene 1) Princes’ decreed: Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace” The Prince is angry calling them “rebellious subjects” (“subjects” – showing he has power). Use of juxtaposition- “enemies to peace”
(Act 1, scene1) Princes’ decree: “…you men, you beasts!” Anger and frustration. Deletion of the word ‘you’. Also, using the word “beasts”, he is comparing them to an animal and insulting them in anger. – dehumanising them and out of control
(Act 1, scene1) Princes’ decree: “purple fountains issuing from your veins” Metaphor. showing hatred and how blood is pumping out in anger
(Act 1, scene1) Princes’ decree: “Canker’d with peace, to part your canker’d hate:” Repetition on the word canker’d and juxtaposition – peace/hate
(Act 1, scene1)Tybalt: “What drawn and talk of peace?. I hate the word, As I hate all Montages and thee” The Montagues aren’t worth of anything and are as bad as hell. Tybalt is repeating the word “hate” to emphasise it. Tybalt is malice (mean, malicious)
(Act 1, scene1) Tybalt: “Turn thee, Benvolio, look upon thy death” Aggressive and is threading Benvolio with death
