Romeo romeo juliet juliet speed dating
Read a translation of Act 5, scene 2 → The sequence of near misses in this section reveals the inescapable work of fate.There is no reason for the friar’s plan to go wrong.On Wednesday morning, on a street in Mantua, a cheerful Romeo describes a wonderful dream he had the night before: Juliet found him lying dead, but she kissed him, and breathed new life into his body.Just then, Balthasar enters, and Romeo greets him happily, saying that Balthasar must have come from Verona with news of Juliet and his father.Thunderstruck, Romeo cries out “Then I defy you, stars” (5.1.24).
He attempts to defy that fate by killing himself and spending eternity with Juliet: “Well, Juliet,” he says, “I will lie with thee tonight” (5.1.34).
The correct quotation is "Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo?
" The word "wherefore" does not mean "where", it means "why", so the quotation means "Romeo, Romeo! " Juliet is asking why she had to fall in love with Romeo, the son of Montague, since she is supposed to hate all Montagues.
Romeo comments that nothing can be ill in the world if Juliet is well.
Balthasar replies that nothing can be ill, then, for Juliet is well: she is in heaven, found dead that morning at her home.
