Romeo and Juliet Revision

Look on moodle for some ideas for essay writing. I have added some words from Romeo about love below.

BENVOLIO
What sadness lengthens Romeo’s hours?
ROMEO
Not … having that, which, having, makes them short.
BENVOLIO
In love?
ROMEO
Out–
BENVOLIO
Of love?
ROMEO
Out of her favour, where I am in love.
(1.1.169-173)

This shows: Romeo is obsessed with the state of being in love.

ROMEO
O, she doth teach the torches to burn … bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows,
As yonder lady o’er her fellows shows.
The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand,
And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand.
Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.
(1.5.51-60)

This shows: Romeo forgets his love for Rosaline the moment he sees Juliet.

ROMEO
How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night,
Like softest music to attending ears!
(2.2.175-177)

This shows: Romeo loves Juliet, but he also loves love.
