The use of a soliloquy as a dramatic device works very effectively here; not only are we as the audience given insight into Romeo’s thoughts, feelings and his true love for Juliet it also allows Shakespeare to create deep feelings of empathy and pathos as we listen to Romeo’s disturbing stream of consciousness.However, at this point to Romeo death is something to be welcomed and is an extension of his love for Juliet; it represents the fulfilment of their love and is a part of it rather than being separate from it.Immediately we see the strong links between this and Romeo’s final soliloquy: both are put at the same point of the plays, this being moments before death, both also feature love as central themes; just as Romeo is delusional i...

This means that Juliet doesn't know about Romeo the son of the enemy and so creates a lot of tension.One of the things we decided to move the part where Juliet finds out that Romeo is a Montague to after Romeo's monologue.We felt that music should be melodious, romantic and dreamy allowing Romeo and Juliet to seem separated from the rest.We decided to cut it off early so that Romeo doesn't find out that Juliet is a Capulet until further on in the play.Another way in which tension is created is that although Juliet knows about Romeo, Romeo is oblivious to the fact that Juliet is a Capulet.

Romeo’s soliloquy begins during Act 5; Scene 3, Romeo and Juliet’s strife comes to a dramatic climax.As the audience watch the scene draw to a close they would be in sheer agony, watching Romeo drink the fatal poison as he makes a toast to Juliet, “here to my love” and dies.This is where Romeo begins his soliloquy; Shakespeare uses dramatic irony in order to cause desperation.This is very intense because they knew Romeo was going to take his life from the beginning of his soliloquy “How oft are men at the pint of death”.Juliet’s soliloquy during Act 3, Scene 2 is another important soliloquy throughout the play.

To begin, the audience feels the purging of catharsis directly after Romeo delivers his soliloquy in Act I, scene iv: “I fear, too early; for my mind misgives/Some consequence yet hanging in the stars/Shall bitterly begin his fearful date” (I, iv, 106-108).Lastly, Romeo is impetuous in many different senses throughout the play, such as his sense of love, pride, and actions.Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet should be regarded as an Aristotelian tragedy because catharsis is exhibited in the play, Juliet’s blindness of love is shown, and Romeo’s impetuousness is the tragic flaw that leads to his demise.McManus, Barbara F. “Outline of Aristotle’s Theory of Tragedy in the Poetics.” CLS267: Greek Tragedy.The famous play Romeo and Juliet, written...

This quote exhibits the theme of acting rashly by showing Juliet, reflecting upon the magnitude of her situation, with a lamentable tone.All in all, acting rashly is something that, when started, is difficult to stop, as Juliet can just avoid drinking the potion, yet does so even when she is unsure of her future.In William Shakespeare’s drama, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the young lovers Romeo and Juliet are depicted to be causing havoc due to them acting rashly.This quote depicts Juliet asking rhetorical questions to herself and the audience, revealing her inhibitions relating to her rash actions.For example, Juliet states, “What if this mixture do not work at all?/ Shall I be married then tomorrow morning” (IV.iii.21-22).

‘A pair of star crossed lovers,’ really exaggerates the amount that Romeo and Juliet love each other and ‘crossed’ gives the idea that they are fated to be together.In Romeo and Juliet there are many significant moments.As said previously we see Romeo lose a bit of his machismo and Juliet become more rebellious.Also earlier in the play Romeo compared Rosaline to the; moon’ and after seeing Juliet he says ‘kill the envious moon’ which exposes that his love for Roaline has ended.The epitome of happiness in this scene is the Juliets soliloquy because of the word choices she uses.

Juliet praises Romeo on his pureness, which contrasts the role of love in act1 scence 1 Romeo is all upset and depressed about him loving Rosalind but her not loving him back, however later when Romeo is with Juliet they say.Earlier in the play Romeo avenges Mercuitio’s death by the killing of Tybalt, the fact of cloudy nights and close curtains which is ironic because they are trying to hide the death of Tybalt which could be hiden in a cloud or behind a curtain.Romeo and Juliets love is very extraordinary that they do not pursue courtly love.” This is dramatically ironic, however it hides a contradiction between “Cloudy nights and Close curtain” which brings her closer to Romeo.Shakespeare provides Juliet with a soliloquy meaning that ...

In the speech Romeo personifies death and accuses death of trying to keep Juliet beautiful so that death can use her for his pleasure: ‘That unsubstantial death is amorous, And that the lean abhorred monster keeps Thee here in the dark to be his paramour?We can see that Romeo is not himself as he says: ‘Tut, I have lost myself; I am not here; This is not Romeo, he’s some other where.Most of the soliloquy is of a sexual nature but some of it is not, for example: ‘Give me my Romeo.‘ When Romeo asked the Friar to marry Juliet and himself, the Friar agreed only because he is hoping that the marriage of Romeo and Juliet will put an end to feud between the houses of Montague and Capulet.Juliet seeks the help of Friar Laurence because she has b...

Without the role of fate and coincidence in the play Romeo and Juliet would not be such a dramatic tragedy.Romeo dreamt: "that my lady came and found me dead" But she gave him the kiss of life and he was revived: "and breathed such life with kisses in my lips that I revived" Shakespeare cleverly adds a twist as it is Romeo who finds Juliet dead, gives her a kiss but she did not revive.If there were no party Romeo would not have met Juliet that evening and would still have been "in love" with Rosaline.This is backed up as Romeo later says when he meets Juliet that somehow coincidence will lead to his "untimely death" which gives the audience a sense of doom hanging over Romeo.The Role of Fate and Coincidence in William Shakespeare's Romeo...

For instance, Romeo referred his hand to be ‘unworthiest’ so that in derogating himself, he also complimented Juliet by implying that her beauty alone make her a place of worship, therefore his ‘lips, two blushing pilgrims’ means that by kissing Juliet, he’ll become holy – his name means going on a pilgrim to Rome.The shared sonnet between Romeo and Juliet is significant as it’s the part they sealed their fate with a kiss and their connection with each other become most apparent as they finish off the structure of the sonnet.Moreover, the soliloquy were all written in a rhyming couplet structure; we can infer from this structure that Romeo is full of love and well versed in the art of romance.In Elizabethan time, Ethiop would’ve been tho...

How Shakespeare Makes Effective Use of Soliloquy to Increase the Audience's Understanding of Character and Plot in Twelfth Night A soliloquy is spoken by one character alone on stage.An audience can learn more from hearing a soliloquy about a certain character.We see from his soliloquy that he is quicker at making a clearer decision.As I have mentioned in the previous paragraph conjunctions are used to heighten tension or confusion- this is perfectly portrayed in Juliet's soliloquy: "And madly play.. And pluckâ€¦ And inâ€¦" The repetitive conjunction adds to the drama because it shows rapid thoughts- not thought through rationally.In 'Twelfth Night' we can clearly see Viola's personality as a carefree but confident individual that she is...

Furthermore this is a point where Juliet is most isolated from her family and becomes closer to Romeo.Despite her subdued character, Juliet is adamant on not marrying Paris and betraying her family for Romeo.The dramatic techniques used in Romeo and Juliet create a hastily strong impact due to the play being condensed into a week and an ambience of anxiety.Furthermore, in Romeo ; Juliet and Macbeth, death is a necessary price to be paid for peace, for example, Romeo and Juliet have to die in order for the Capulet’s and Montague’s to live in tranquillity, to support this, a quote from the beginning soliloquy: “What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend” – This means that where we have failed before we will strive to succeed now, ...
