A Close Analysis Of Act3 Scene V Of 'romeo And Juliet'.

1211 words - 5 pages

In this essay I'm going to analyse a main scene from Romeo and Juliet which is Act 3 Scene V. Romeo and Juliet just got married in secret in Friar Lawrence's cell and spent the night together as now Romeo is banished from Verona, because of Tybalt's death. This includes many major themes such as conflict, appearance and reality, love, family pressures, time and fate mostly because of conflict between the Montagues and the Capulets and love because of Romeo and Juliet. All of these contribute to the tragedy of the death of Romeo and Juliet.Also the structure of the essay will be in duologue's as in this scene two people are always talking to each other. For this essay it will show a dramatic effect mostly on the audience as the play has many examples of dramatic irony especially when the actors say phrases that predicts what is going to happen eventhough they don't know yet. Most dramatic affects will come from the duologue, structure and the main themes.At dawn on Tuesday morning, Romeo and Juliet make their final exchanges of the love before Romeo leaves for Mantua. Once again, the dawn divides Romeo and Juliet, this time, for good. As the sun's rays 'lace the severing clouds', Juliet wishes the sound of the morning lark were actually the call of the nightingale. Juliet tries to deny the arrival of the coming day to prolong her time with Romeo. Their language is passionate and intense as Romeo agress to stay and face his death. As in previous scence, Romeo and Juliet's love flourishes in the dark, but daylight brings seperation and ill fortune : Juliet says reluctantly, 'window, let day in, and let life out'.As Romeo comes down from the balcony, Juliet get's a horrible vision of Romeo 'as one dead in the bottom off a tomb'. This image will come true in the final scene when Juliet awakens from her drug - induced sleep to find Romeo dead on the floor of the Capulet tomb. Once again, images of love and death show dramatic irony, affecting the happyness of their wedding night with the foreshadowing of their coming deaths.Lady Capulet, unaware that Juliet grieves for Romeo's banishment rather than the death of Tybalt, tries o comfort her daughter with her plans to avenge Tybalt's death by poisoning Romeo anticipates the method he choose to take his own life in the final act of the play. Although Romeo drinks the poison by his own hand, it is the hatred, driven in part by Lady Capulet that gives him cause.Instead of being the mother figure to Juliet, Lady Capulet is cold and vengeful. She is like Tybalt, prepared to continue the feud without caring about the authority of the Prince, Lady Capulet gets very angry at Juliet with the refusal to marry Paris and makes Juliet even worse by saying to Juliet, 'the fool were married to her grave'. Once again the image of Juliet's grave as her wedding bed involves the meeting of them both, but this time dead. It's as if Lady Capulet leads Juliet into her own fate. Juliet's interaction with both her mother and...
