Act III, Scene III
1. When Friar Lawrence announced to Romeo the news that he is banished, Romeo said, “There is no world without Verona walls / But purgatory, torture, hell itself. / Hence “banishèd” is banished from the world, / And world’s exile is death” (III.iii.18-21). He was saying that living outside Verona was like a torture because he did not want to leave Verona since he compared being banished to being dead when he realized he cannot be with Juliet anymore. He continued, “'Tis torture and not mercy. Heaven is here, / Where Juliet lives, nd every cat and dog / And little mouse, every unworthy thing, / Live here in heaven and may look on her, / But Romeo may not. (III.iii.31-35). ...view middle of the document...

He also believed that Romeo’s mind that was supposed to control his body and his love had failed to manage them both. He compared him to a vacuous soldier that exploded his gun powder because he was careless. The Friar adviced him to be happy since he was still alive because Tybalt could have killed him and the law that was supposed to give him his death was softened to being exiled from Verona and told him to appreciate all the blessings he had as well. Moreover, the Friar also tried to console Romeo by saying, “Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed. / Ascend her chamber, hence, and comfort her. / But look thou stay not till the watch be set, / For then thou canst not pass to Mantua, / Where thou shalt live, till we can find a time / To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, / Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back / With twenty hundred thousand times more joy / Than thou went’st forth in lamentation” (III.iii.156-164). He was saying that Romeo should go to Juliet’s chamber and comfort her but he had to leave before the night guards take their positions. Then, Romeo had to flee to Mantua, and the Friar also promised that he will try to make their marriage officially announced to the public and make peace between the Capulets and Montagues. Also, he promised to ask for forgiveness from the Prince and to welcome Romeo back.
Act III, Scene IV
1. Capulet arranged the wedding of Paris and Juliet without asking Juliet’s opinion about this. Paris was overwhelmed that he did not have to court Juliet anymore since her father had made his decision already. However, when Juliet’s parents’ told this news to Juliet that night, when she was still crying over Romeo being banished instead of her cousin’s death, she was asking for more enough time and to excuse her from marrying Paris since he did not officially woo her yet. This scene is an example of dramatic irony because her father’s will was for her to marry Paris. Although, she knew that she could not marry another man since she was already married to Romeo, her father thought that she was being disobedient.
Act III, Scene V
1. Juliet is speaking badly of Romeo to her mother when she said, “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied / With Romeo, till I behold him—dead— / Is my poor heart for a kinsman vexed. / Madam, if you could find out but a man / To bear a poison, I would temper it, / That Romeo should, upon receipt thereof, / Soon sleep in quiet. Oh, 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 slaughtered him!” (III.v.98-107). This is because her mother does not know about their relationship and...
