The Dramatization of Act 3 Scene 1 of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet is a very famous play about two lovers in two
different families who are rivals. Romeo and Juliet has love, passion,
fighting, sadness, madness, lust and jealousy packed into one. It was
written by William Shakespeare around 1595 over 400 years ago. Romeo
and Juliet is a great play for all ages and genders this is one of the
things that makes it so special. This is why it is still performed
around the world today.

Before Fight

This is how William Shakespeare makes the story dramatic before the
fight. In the play Shakespeare uses dramatic and emotive language for
example "for now those hot days, is the mad blood stirring". Before
the fight starts there is a light hearted mood. It is nice sunny day
where Benvolio and Mercutio are playfully fooling around, talking
about various subjects in their life. After a while they sit down to
rest, just chatting. Quite quickly Mercutio and Benvolio get bored and
restless. At this time the Capulets turn up and the mood suddenly
changes to a tense atmosphere They slowly walk over to Benvolio and
Mercutio and Tybalt was not in a good mood after the previous night .
Benvolio was first to see them "by my head here come the Capulets"
Mercutio reply's with a smile "by my heel I care not" this shows that
he's in a strange mood most probably bored and restless and is trying
to cause trouble. Straight away Mercutio is up on his feet and face to
face with Tybalt drawing attention to themselves. He gradually
provokes Tybalt e.g. "could you not take some occasion without giving"
but then Tybalt infuriates Mercutio "Mercutio, thou consortest with
Romeo" this makes him mad so Mercutio lashes out, pushing Benvolio
aside who's trying to keep the peace as he says "we talk here in
public haunt of men. Either withdraw unto some private place, or
reason coldly of your grievevances, or else depart, here all eyes gaze
on us." But Mercutio ignores him and carries on. The scene began in a
light hearted tone but soon turns serious

During fight

During the fight Shakespeare makes it dramatises by making Romeo happy
and joyful as he meets his best friend Mercutio but his joy soon turns
to anger when Tybalt appears and a fight is started. Romeo tries to
interfere with the fight and stop it, as he must feel guilty if
anything should happen to Tybalt because he has just married Juliet.
Romeo is at first placid but as the scene goes on he becomes
increasingly agitated and angry until finally he totally loses control
and stabs Tybalt to death. At this point Romeo rejects all logic and
becomes a revenge hero "away to heaven respective lenity and fire eyed
fury be my conduct now. This is dramatic language, which contrasts
with Romeo's...
