Some of the dramatic techniques that were used by Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet are Tone and Diction, Irony, and Foreshadowing. These three techniques are used to help support the major theme that “Family ties are important because one’s blood is much important that any hatred towards another”. Throughout Romeo and Juliet we can see these three being used and how drastically they impact the scene by creating suspense and catching and keeping the attention of the reader/audience.
Act one, scene five is when Romeo had attended Capulet’s feast and Tybalt finds out that Romeo gate-crashed the feast, he is not very happy about it but Capulet tells Tybalt to let it go because he doesn’t want Tybalt to start a scene in front of everybody at the feast. While Romeo is at the feast he spots Juliet (Capulet) and he finds her more beautiful than Rosaline, he approaches Juliet and they start talking and holding hands then Romeo tells Juliet “ O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands
Most mature people know impulsive actions leads to negative outcomes. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet were very impulsive and there impulsiveness caused conflicts. For example Romeo was impulsive when when Tybalt killed Mercutio so Romeo killed tybalt. Tybalt was being an antagonist because he was ganging up on Romeo and trying to get Romeo to fight him. Through the story Romeo goes through internal conflict of killing himself or suicidal thoughts. These thought and
characters in William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet, the two from the opposing families fall in love which is ultimately led by their destiny to tragedy. The play tells the two lovers trying to maintain their love against the opposition and pressures from their respective families, but the grievances of the two families cause events one after another, eventually leading to the death of Romeo and Juliet.

Rhetorical Terms Group 3 1. Diction- style of speaking or writing determined by the choice of words by a speaker or a writer.

This could foreshadow what will happen to Romeo as in his inevitable death. Again with Juliet’s premonition that their love will end in tragedy, as she thinks she sees Romeo “dead at the bottom of a tomb”, Shakespeare could be implying the purity of their love but also the problems it causes for the people. However, in my own opinion, I believe that the premonition truly suggests that even if problems come their way, the couple will overcome them together, and it could foreshadow the events that
and others around them, whether they lived in the 1800s or not. An example of a reoccurring theme which both writers use as a foundation for their work is death and the emotions that come with it. During Act 4 scene 3, Juliet is conflicted with the desire of taking her own life in order to prevent marrying someone other than Romeo. In order to accomplish this, she drinks a ‘’poison’’ which she received from Friar Laurence. Juliet seemingly understands death and the horrors of ‘’loathsome smells’’
Chapter 1: Every Trip Is a Quest (Except When It’s Not) Main Ideas: • Quests may not always be as dramatic as a knight having to save a princess from evil, but instead may be as simple as a trip to the supermarket. • There is usually a stated reason for a quest, but the real reason never involves the stated reason. • The real reason for a quest is to always gain self-knowledge.
