good Mercutio, let’s retire;/ The day is hot and the Capels are abroad, Benvolio
Thou wilt quarrel with a man that hath a hair more oft a hair less in his/ beard than thou hast Mercutio, accusing Benvolio of being quarrelsome
Thy head is as full of quarrels as an egg is full of/ meat, and yet thy head hath been beaten as addle as an egg for/ quarreling Mercutio, accusing Benvolio of being quarrelsome
Mercutio, thou consortest with Romeo Tybalt
We talk here in the public haunt of men./ Either withdraw unto some private place,/ Or reason coldly of your grievances,/ Or else depart. Here all eyes gaze on us. Benvolio
To such a greeting: villain I am none,/ Therefore farewell. I see thou knowest me not. Romeo, to Tybalt
And so, good Capulet, which name I tender/ As dearly as my own, be satisfied. Romeo
I am for you Tybalt
Ay, ay, a scratch a scratch. Marry, ’tis enough. Mercutio, verbal irony
How many times does Mercutio curse the two houses? 3 times
This day’s black fate on more days doth depend:/ This but begins the woe others must end. Romeo
O, I am fortunes fool. Romeo
Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill. Prince
Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,/ Towards Pheobus’ lodging. Juliet, allusion
Come, civil night,/ Thou sober-suited matron, all in black Juliet, personification
Whiter than new snow upon a raven’s back. Simile
Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished./ Romeo that killed him, he is banished. Nurse
Beautiful tyrant, fiend angelical,/ Dove- feathered raven, wolfish-ravening lamb!/ Despised substance of divinest show! Juliet, oxymorons
Was ever book containing such vile matter Juliet, allusion
Hath slain ten thousand Tybalts: Tybalt’s death/ Was woe enough, if it had ended there. Juliet, hyperbole
And thou art wedded to calamity. Friar Lawrence
A gentler judgement vanished from his lips:/ Not body’s death but body’s banishment. Friar Lawrence
O, then I see that mad men have no ears. Friar Lawrence
How should they when that wise men have no eyes? Romeo
And what says/ My concealed lady to our cancelled love? Romeo, alliteration
Shot from the deadly level of a gun. Romeo, anachronism, guns not invented til 1400’s
These times of woe afford no times to woo Paris
Night’s candles are burnt out, and jocund day/ Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops./ I must be gone and live, or stay and die. Romeo, personification
More light and light: more dark and dark our woes. Romeo, paradox
Then, window, let day in and let life out Romeo, paradox
O Fortune, Fortune: All men call thee fickle;/ If thou art fickle, what dost thou with him Juliet
Villain and he be many miles asunder./ God pardon him. I do with all my heart./ And yet no man like he doth grieve my heart. Juliet
I would the fool were married to her grave. Lady Capulet
I tell thee what- get thee to church a Thursday/ Or never after look me in the face./ Speak not, reply not, do not answer me. Capulet
Delay this marriage for a month, a week,/ Or if you do not, make the bridal bed/ In that dim monument where Tybalt lies. Juliet, threatening to kill herself
Well, thou hast comforted me marvelous much. Juliet, verbal irony
At the end of Act III, how does Juliet feel? Juliet feels abandoned by Romeo, who has left, by her father, who threatened to disown her, by her mother, who completely ignores her threats of suicide, and by the nurse, who urges her to marry Paris.
