___________________________Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare


STUDYWORLD STUDYNOTES

Romeo and Juliet

Quick/Fast Review

The play takes place in the town of Verona. The Montagues and Capulets are two rivalry families.They are involved in a family feud that goes back years before any of the members were born.Yet the feud still continues due to the fact that neither family is ready to forgive and forget the past.

Even the townspeople are involved because the families do not keep the feud in the privacy of their own home but have been seen fighting in the public streets and displaying violence. They disrupt the peace of Verona and even Prince Escalus personally had to break up a fight, where the family members were heavily fined. They were also given a warning that another public fight could result in death.

While this is occurring Romeo, the main character, is getting over his last love, Rosaline, and was very upset. Juliet of the Capulet household has just been introduced to a wealthy young man , Paris, who her parents wish her to marry. Yet she does not love him.

Romeo and Juliet starts off with a prologue that tells the general outline of the story foreshadowing future events. The prologue is followed by the rest of the play which is in 5 acts. Unlike some of Shakespeare’s other plays, most, if not all, of the main actions are onstage. The single plot is chronological and easy to follow. There are no flashbacks and no dream scenes. The attention is generally paid to Romeo as the focus follows him through the play.
