Thanks for watching
Act 3, Scene 2
by Hank C, Austin Y, Monica.
This shows her deep feelings for Romeo, showing us that Juliet had fallen in love with him for real.
How does Juliet feel when she heard the death of Romeo?
As said before, because she loved Romeo, she’s surprised and despaired when she heard Romeo's death.
Phoebus is the god whose chariot pulls the sun across the sky; Phaeton was his son, who lost control of the chariot when he drove too fast.
line 17- "Come, night, come, Romeo, come, thou day in night;
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow on a raven's back."
This metaphor contrasts Romeo's shining whiteness and the deep black of the night.
There are a lot of personification in Act 3 scene 2-
line 10-"Come, civil night, thou sober-suited matron, all in black." This line is not only personifying night because she is asking it to come as if it were something she could command, but also because she is referring to it as a mourning matron dressed all in black.
Questions after reading the scene...
Why did Juliet resigns to kill herself?
-Because Juliet thought that Romeo killed himself, so she’s really upset.
Eventually, she subsides into grief for the loss of her husband, and sends the Nurse to look for Romeo.
-line 113- "But oh, it presses to my memory, Like damnèd guilty deeds to sinners' minds." Here Juliet is talking about that she is trying to forget about the new the nurse brings but her the news is sticking to her memory.
-line 76-"Beautiful Tyant, Fiend angelical!" A tyrant is an oppressive dictator who pays no heed to justice.

Benvolio, in rounding up his party of masked guests to attend the dance, has included a new character in the group-Mercutio, known for his wit and love of adventure. The guests are accompanied by torchbearers to light the way and drummers to announce their coming. The maskers are expected to announce their presence with a short speech, after which the host would welcome them and invite them to participate in the dance. Romeo is worried about making a speech and being discovered. Benvolio, however, dismisses the idea, adding that they will dance awhile and then leave. Romeo says that he wants to enter as a torchbearer, for he only wants to look on. Mercutio insists that he must dance, but Romeo declares that his soul is too heavy for dancing. He says that he has been too sorely wounded by Cupids arrow to soar high. Mercutio grows impatient with his friend, but he prefers jesting and exchanges puns with Romeo. Romeo tells him of a dream in which he was warned of death if he goes to the dance. Mercutio ridicules dreams and their interpretations. Benvolio is annoyed over the delay caused by his friends. He orders the drummers to beat the drums and announce their arrival at the party. Romeo joins in the festivities, but his mind is not at ease.
