Part 1 – Romeo has to leave Verona and Juliet or he will be
punished by death!
Enter ROMEO and JULIET above, at the window
JULIET
                                                                  Why does Juliet want it to be
             Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day:           the nightingale rather than
             It was the nightingale, and not the lark,            the lark?
             That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear;
             Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree:
             Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.

ROMEO
               It was the lark, the herald of the morn,
               No nightingale: look, love, what envious streaks
               Do lace the severing clouds in yonder east:
               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.

              JULIET
              Yon light is not day-light, I know it, I:
              It is some meteor that the sun exhales,
              To be to thee this night a torch-bearer,
              And light thee on thy way to Mantua:
              Therefore stay yet; thou need'st not to be gone.


ROMEO
Let me be ta'en, let me be put to death;
I am content, so thou wilt have it so.                 Juliet loves Rome, so why does
I'll say yon grey is not the morning's eye,            she say that he has to go?
'Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia's brow;
Nor that is not the lark, whose notes do beat          How do you think this is
The vaulty heaven so high above our heads:             going to make her feel?
I have more care to stay than will to go:
Come, death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so.
How is't, my soul? let's talk; it is not day.

JULIET
 It is, it is: hie hence, be gone, away!
 It is the lark that sings so out of tune,
 Straining harsh discords and unpleasing sharps.
 Some say the lark makes sweet division;
 This doth not so, for she divideth us:
 Some say the lark and loathed toad change eyes,
O, now I would they had changed voices too!
Since arm from arm that voice doth us affray,
Hunting thee hence with hunt's-up to the day,
O, now be gone; more light and light it grows.

                                 ROMEO
                                 More light and light; more dark and dark our woes!

                                 Enter Nurse, to the chamber

                               Nurse
                               Madam!
                               JULIET
                               Nurse?
                               Nurse
                               Your lady mother is coming to your chamber:
The day is broke; be wary, look about.

Exit

                                 JULIET
                                 Then, window, let day in, and let life out.
                                 ROMEO
                                 Farewell, farewell! one kiss, and I'll descend.

                                 He goeth down

                                JULIET
                                Art thou gone so? love, lord, ay, husband, friend!    How does Juli
                                I must hear from thee every day in the hour,          she will miss
                                For in a minute there are many days:
O, by this count I shall be much in years                                             much?
Ere I again behold my Romeo!

   ROMEO
   Farewell!
   I will omit no opportunity
   That may convey my greetings, love, to thee.                How do we know
                                                               that Romeo loves
   JULIET
O think'st thou we shall ever meet again?                      her very much?
ROMEO
I doubt it not; and all these woes shall serve
For sweet discourses in our time to come.
                                JULIET
                                O God, I have an ill-divining soul!
                                Methinks I see thee, now thou art below,
                                As one dead in the bottom of a tomb:
                                Either my eyesight fails, or thou look'st pale.

                                ROMEO
                                And trust me, love, in my eye so do you:
                                Dry sorrow drinks our blood. Adieu, adieu!

                                Exit

     JULIET
     O fortune, fortune! all men call thee fickle:
     If thou art fickle, what dost thou with him.
     That is renown'd for faith? Be fickle, fortune;
     For then, I hope, thou wilt not keep him long,
But send him back.

                  Romeo and
Juliet
Assignment 1
This assignment is the first of a number of activities designed to help you
to produce a piece of Shakespeare coursework for your GCSE folder.
The Shakespeare coursework is compulsory, so you MUST complete the
Romeo and Juliet assignments so that your final mark can go towards
your GCSE grade.

The aim is to produce an essay about Romeo and Juliet– a long piece of
writing in sentences and paragraphs.

This is the title we are working towards:


Juliet finds herself in a terrible predicament
in act 3 scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet; she has
secretly married Romeo, but her father
wants her to marry Paris. How does
Shakespeare make us sympathise with Juliet
in this part of the play?
                                    We are not going to write the essay
                                    all in one go – we are going to do it
                                    in stages; today’s assignment is
                                    the first stage. You are going to
                                    make some notes, then write them
                                    up in sentences and paragraphs.

                                                Julie
Last week we looked at the opening part of act 3 scene 5 where
Romeo has to leave Juliet. Your assignment was to write about

                                                t
up with these yourself, you could use them in your final piece of
coursework.

      They are very much in love
      They don‟t want to be parted
      Juliet wants Romeo to stay, she does this by persuading Romeo that it is

      As day comes, Juliet‟s happiness goes
      Romeo loves Juliet very much – he is going to write to her at every
       opportunity
      She knows she will miss him as “ in a minute there are many days”



      Why do we feel sorry for Juliet?
     because she has only just married Romeo and she knows that he has to
      leave her
     Juliet is worried that she will never see Romeo again
     Juliet must be worried that she is keeping such a huge secret from her
      family
     Juliet thinks that God is being cruel to her
     She must be very distressed to see her love leave her



Today we are going to concentrate on Juliet’s parents;
they are called ‘Capulet’ and ‘Lady Capulet’
 Note…
 In Shakespeare’s day it was expected that
 the father would find a ‘good match’ for
 his daughter, and marry her off to as rich
 and important a man as possible.
 It was also expected that the daughter
 would be grateful and do exactly as she
 was told.



Capulet looks a bit ‘wet’ in this
picture, but he is actually furious
with Juliet.




Here is the next chunk of text:
                            LADY CAPULET
[Within] Ho, daughter! are you up?
JULIET
Who is't that calls? is it my lady mother?
Is she not down so late, or up so early?
What unaccustom'd cause procures her hither?

Enter LADY CAPULET

LADY CAPULET
Why, how now, Juliet!
JULIET
Madam, I am not well.                                    Here begins the big
LADY CAPULET                                             misunderstanding of this part of the
Evermore weeping for your cousin's death?                scene. Why does Lady Capulet think
What, wilt thou wash him from his grave with tears?
An if thou couldst, thou couldst not make him live;      Juliet is crying so much?
Therefore, have done: some grief shows much of love;
But much of grief shows still some want of wit.
JULIET
Yet let me weep for such a feeling loss.
LADY CAPULET                                     Romeo
So shall you feel the loss, but not the friend Tybalt
Which you weep for.
JULIET                                                Juliet secretly lets the audience
Feeling so the loss,
Cannot choose but ever weep the friend.
                                                      know why she is crying – how
LADY CAPULET                                          does this help us sympathise with
Well, girl, thou weep'st not so much for his death, her?
As that the villain lives which slaughter'd him.
JULIET
What villain madam?                         How does Lady Capulet’s opinion
LADY CAPULET
That same villain, Romeo.                   of Romeo help us to sympathise
JULIET                                      with Juliet?
[Aside] Villain and he be many miles asunder.--
God Pardon him! I do, with all my heart;                This helps us to understand Juliet – it
And yet no man like he doth grieve my heart.            lets the audience know that Juliet is
LADY CAPULET                                            suffering.
That is, because the traitor murderer lives.
JULIET
Ay, madam, from the reach of these my hands:         Is Juliet being honest here?
Would none but I might venge my cousin's death!
LADY CAPULET
We will have vengeance for it, fear thou not:
Then weep no more. I'll send to one in Mantua,
Where that same banish'd runagate doth live,       What does Lady Capulet plan to do?
Shall give him such an unaccustom'd dram,
That he shall soon keep Tybalt company:
And then, I hope, thou wilt be satisfied.
JULIET
Indeed, I never shall be satisfied              Juliet speaks at crossed purposes with her
With Romeo, till I behold him--dead--           mother. The audience knows what she
Is my poor heart for a kinsman vex'd.           means, Lady Capulet doesn’t. Again,
Madam, if you could find out but a man
                                                how does this help us sympathise with
To bear a poison, I would temper it;
That Romeo should, upon receipt thereof,        Juliet?
Soon sleep in quiet. O, how my heart abhors
To hear him named, and cannot come to him.
To wreak the love I bore my cousin
Upon his body that slaughter'd him!
LADY CAPULET
Find thou the means, and I'll find such a man.
But now I'll tell thee joyful tidings, girl.
JULIET
And joy comes well in such a needy time:
What are they, I beseech your ladyship?
LADY CAPULET
Well, well, thou hast a careful father, child;
One who, to put thee from thy heaviness,
Hath sorted out a sudden day of joy,
That thou expect'st not nor I look'd not for.
JULIET
Madam, in happy time, what day is that?



          LADY CAPULET
Marry, my child, early next Thursday morn,
The gallant, young and noble gentleman,
The County Paris, at Saint Peter's Church,
Shall happily make thee there a joyful bride.



                                JULIET
                                Now, by Saint Peter's Church and Peter too,
                                He shall not make me there a joyful bride.
                                I wonder at this haste; that I must wed
                                Ere he, that should be husband, comes to woo.
                                I pray you, tell my lord and father, madam,
                                I will not marry yet; and, when I do, I swear,
                                It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate,
Rather than Paris. These are news indeed!
LADY CAPULET
Here comes your father; tell him so yourself,
And see how he will take it at your hands.



How has Juliet’s situation just got worse?
    she can’t control her feelings of grief and loss over Romeo
    she has to lie to her mother to conceal the truth
    her mother announces that a marriage has been arranged
     for her
    Juliet asks her mother to tell her father that she doesn’t
     want to marry Paris – Lady Capulet refuses – she doesn’t
     seem sympathetic.

 It would be a mortal sin for Juliet
 to marry another when she
 remains married to Romeo –
 religion was very important then,
 she wouldn’t want to offend God.

                  [Enter CAPULET and Nurse]

                                                                            draw attention to the

                           When the sun sets, the air doth drizzle dew;     still sobbing?
                        But for the sunset of my brother's son
                        It rains downright.
                        How now! a conduit, girl? what, still in tears?
                        Evermore showering? In one little body
                        Thou counterfeit'st a bark, a sea, a wind;
                        For still thy eyes, which I may call the sea,
                        Do ebb and flow with tears; the bark thy body is,
                        Sailing in this salt flood; the winds, thy sighs;
                        Who, raging with thy tears, and they with them,
                        Without a sudden calm, will overset
                        Thy tempest-tossed body. How now, wife!
                        Have you deliver'd to her our decree?

LADY CAPULET

  Ay, sir; but she will none, she gives you thanks.
                                                      Lady Capulet is clearly annoyed at
I would the fool were married to her grave!           Juliet’s disobedience.


CAPULET
  Soft! take me with you, take me with you, wife.        Why should she be grateful?
How! will she none? doth she not give us thanks?
Is she not proud? doth she not count her blest,
Unworthy as she is, that we have wrought
So worthy a gentleman to be her bridegroom?

JULIET
  Not proud, you have; but thankful, that you have:
Proud can I never be of what I hate;
But thankful even for hate, that is meant love.
CAPULET
  How now, how now, chop-logic! What is this?
'Proud,' and 'I thank you,' and 'I thank you not;'
And yet 'not proud,' mistress minion, you,                  Capulet is furious and
Thank me no thankings, nor, proud me no prouds,             insults Juliet
But fettle your fine joints 'gainst Thursday next,
To go with Paris to Saint Peter's Church,
Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither.
Out, you green-sickness carrion! out, you baggage!
You tallow-face!

LADY CAPULET
 Fie, fie! what, are you mad?
                                                     Think about Juliet’s tone of voice here;
JULIET
 Good father, I beseech you on my knees,             why should the audience feel sorry for
Hear me with patience but to speak a word.           her?

CAPULET
   Hang thee, young baggage! disobedient wretch!
I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday,
Or never after look me in the face:
Speak not, reply not, do not answer me;
My fingers itch. Wife, we scarce thought us blest     Why is this ironic?
That God had lent us but this only child;
But now I see this one is one too much,
And that we have a curse in having her:
Out on her, hilding!

Nurse
 God in heaven bless her!
You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so.

CAPULET
 And why, my lady wisdom? hold your tongue,
Good prudence; smatter with your gossips, go.

Nurse
 I speak no treason.

CAPULET
 O, God ye god-den.

Nurse
 May not one speak?
CAPULET
 Peace, you mumbling fool!
Utter your gravity o'er a gossip's bowl;
For here we need it not.

LADY CAPULET
 You are too hot.

CAPULET
  God's bread! it makes me mad:
Day, night, hour, tide, time, work, play,
Alone, in company, still my care hath been
To have her match'd: and having now provided
A gentleman of noble parentage,
Of fair demesnes, youthful, and nobly train'd,
Stuff'd, as they say, with honourable parts,
Proportion'd as one's thought would wish a man;
And then to have a wretched puling fool,            What threats does
A whining mammet, in her fortune's tender,
To answer 'I'll not wed; I cannot love,
                                                    Capulet make?
I am too young; I pray you, pardon me.'
But, as you will not wed, I'll pardon you:
Graze where you will you shall not house with me:
Look to't, think on't, I do not use to jest.
Thursday is near; lay hand on heart, advise:
An you be mine, I'll give you to my friend;
And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in
the streets,
For, by my soul, I'll ne'er acknowledge thee,
Nor what is mine shall never do thee good:
Trust to't, bethink you; I'll not be forsworn.

How has Juliet’s situation worsened in this part of the scene?

      Her mother wishes she was dead „married to her grave‟
      She has angered her father – she would not wanted to do this – she loves
       her family and she needs them
      Her father has threatened to disown her and throw her out onto the streets
       where she will starve
      Capulet expects her to marry Paris



How has Shakespeare made us sympathise with her?
   She pleads on her knees to be heard, to explain or to put her views
     forward, but neither parent will hear her, Juliet is always the powerless
     victim here, it is Capulet who holds the power in the family
   Shakespeare emphasises her grief by using the imagery of the ocean of
     tears to show how much she is sobbing “For still thy eyes, which I may call
     the sea,
     Do ebb and flow with tears”
   Capulet says some hurtful things “Wife, we scarce thought us blest
     That God had lent us but this only child;
     But now I see this one is one too much,
     And that we have a curse in having her:” this is ironic because the
     audience knows that they will not have Juliet for long, this makes it even
     more tragic, that there are such words of hate before Juliet dies.
                       Romeo
                       and
                       Juliet
Assignment 3

This week we are going to write up two
important sections of the piece of
coursework, firstly the introduction and
secondly the section where Capulet
threatens Juliet when she refuses to marry
Paris.

     We have covered all the notes you will need in the
LearnLinc lesson; you can always look back at this if
you need help.



The introduction
Every essay needs an introduction; this is the opening paragraph or
paragraphs of the essay and they introduce the themes, ideas and the
focus of the study. For this piece of coursework you should include the
following information:
     the title of the play and the playwright’s name and that it is a
      tragedy
     a few sentences on the basic storyline of the play – no more
     why you think Romeo and Juliet is such a popular play today as
      well as then
     write a few sentences about the scene you have been studying
     what things has Shakespeare done to try and make the audience
      sympathise with Juliet in this scene (language and imagery,
      dramatic events, highly emotional situations and
      misunderstandings).
     you could also mention a little about the context of the play – that
      Juliet would have been expected to obey her father, but the
      audience in this case but the audience sympathise with Juliet
      because they know that true love means that she cannot do this.

      Juliet
   2. look at what we have covered so far
   3. structure the coursework essay.




             JULIET

      Is there no pity sitting in the clouds,
      That sees into the bottom of my grief?
      O, sweet my mother, cast me not away!
      Delay this marriage for a month, a week;
      Or, if you do not, make the bridal bed
      In that dim monument where Tybalt lies.




       LADY CAPULET
        Talk not to me, for I'll not speak a word:
        Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.

        Exit

JULIET

        O God!--O nurse, how shall this be prevented?
        My husband is on earth, my faith in heaven;
        How shall that faith return again to earth,
        Unless that husband send it me from heaven
        By leaving earth? comfort me, counsel me.
        Alack, alack, that heaven should practise stratagems
        Upon so soft a subject as myself!
        What say'st thou? hast thou not a word of joy?
        Some comfort, nurse.

Nurse

        Faith, here it is.
        Romeo is banish'd; and all the world to nothing,
        That he dares ne'er come back to challenge you;
        Or, if he do, it needs must be by stealth.
        Then, since the case so stands as now it doth,
        I think it best you married with the county.
        O, he's a lovely gentleman!
        Romeo's a dishclout to him: an eagle, madam,
        Hath not so green, so quick, so fair an eye
        As Paris hath. Beshrew my very heart,
        I think you are happy in this second match,
        For it excels your first: or if it did not,
        Your first is dead; or 'twere as good he were,
        As living here and you no use of him.

JULIET

        Speakest thou from thy heart?

Nurse

        And from my soul too;
        Or else beshrew them both.

JULIET

        Amen!
Nurse

        What?

JULIET

        Well, thou hast comforted me marvellous much.
        Go in: and tell my lady I am gone,
        Having displeased my father, to Laurence' cell,
        To make confession and to be absolved.

Nurse

        Marry, I will; and this is wisely done.

        Exit

JULIET

        Ancient damnation! O most wicked fiend!
        Is it more sin to wish me thus forsworn,
        Or to dispraise my lord with that same tongue
        Which she hath praised him with above compare
        So many thousand times? Go, counsellor;
        Thou and my bosom henceforth shall be twain.
        I'll to the friar, to know his remedy:
        If all else fail, myself have power to die.

        Exit
                         Romeo

              How does Shakespeare
make the audience sympathise with
Juliet in act 3 scene 5?
Plan
Introduction:
    name the play (Romeo and Juliet),
    the genre tragedy
    author – William Shakespeare
    brief outline of the story
    the focus of your essay (act 3 scene 5 where Romeo and
     Juliet part and she finds out that she has to marry
     Paris).

Main body – Shakespeare makes the reader feel sympathy for
Juliet because of:
         the things that happen to Juliet
         the things that Juliet does and thinks
         the way the audience understands Juliet’s situation

These are the things that happen to Juliet:
        she has to make Romeo leave before daybreak and
          neither of them want to be parted, it is like grief for
          Juliet – losing the person she loves
        Juliet’s mother announces that she is to marry
         Paris, Juliet doesn’t want to and cannot marry him
         as she is already married to Romeo
        Lady Capulet wishes Juliet were ‘married to her
         grave’
        Juliet’s father is furious at her refusal to marry
         Paris, he calls her names and threatens her
        The nurse stands up for Juliet, but Capulet
         dismisses her
        Lastly the nurse advises Juliet to marry Paris as it
         is the most ‘sensible’ choice

This is what Juliet does and thinks:
   Juliet feels grief-stricken when Romeo leaves, she feels
     like a plaything of the Gods who are being cruel to her.
   She sobs uncontrollably because of the loss she feels for
     Romeo
   She has to lie to her mother about why she is crying to
     disguise the truth of her secret marriage and love for
     Romeo
   Juliet feels abandoned by her mother who does not
     sympathise with her
   Juliet is hurt and crushed by her father’s fury and
     doesn’t know what to do
   Juliet cannot believe that the nurse has advised her to
     marry Paris and realises that she can no longer rely on
     the nurse’s comfort, she feels betrayed and utterly alone.
   Juliet can only think about suicide if Friar Lawrence
     cannot find a solution to her predicament.

Conclusion:
   Sum up what you have said – that Juliet has suffered a
    series of upsetting events in this scene which leaves her
    devastated and alone.
Remember the formula:

Point          quote         explain

Use quotations to show that you understand Shakespeare’s
intentions and meanings.

Use phrases like:

Shakespeare makes us sympathise because…
 Your name:                 Date:

in act 3 scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet; she has
secretly married Romeo, but her father
