Romeo, who knows the dangers of showing up to the feast, only agreed to go because there would be many girls he could potentially fall in love with. Before the feast begins Lady Capulet tells Juliet about Paris wanting to marry her. Lady Capulet asked how she feels about marriage and replies she does not think about it. Juliet then tells Lady Capulet that she will see whether or not she is able to fall in love with Paris at Lord Capulet’s feast. Suddenly a serving man enters the room and announces the beginning of the feast.
Summary of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Paris asks Capulet for his daughter Juliet's hand in marriage. Capulet replies that she is still too young to be married, but nevertheless invites Paris to try to woo her at a banquet he is holding that night. He gives a servant a list of guests and tells him to take an invitation to each of them. The servant is illiterate, and so goes about trying to find someone to read the list for him. He runs into Romeo and Benvolio, who are still discussing Romeo's unrequited love.
William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet In Verona,(the two sevants of each family) Sampson and Gregory who are the Capulet servants complain that they are insulted by the Montague family who are Abram and Balthasar the servants appear and start quarrelling in the market square. Benvolio (Lord Montague's nephew) appears and tries to break up the quarrel, but Tybalt (Lady Capulet's nephew) appears and picks a fight with Benvolio. At length, officers try to break up the fight, even while Lord Capulet and Lord Montague begin to fight one another. The Prince of Verona (Escalus) appears and stops the fighting, proclaiming sentences of death to any that renew the fighting. At Montague's house, he, his wife, and Benvolio discuss how melancholy Romeo (Montague's only son) has been lately.
However, Romeo instead meets and falls in love with Juliet. After the ball, in what is now called the "balcony scene", Romeo sneaks into the Capulet courtyard and overhears Juliet on her balcony vowing her love to him in spite of her family's hatred of the Montagues. Romeo makes himself known to her and they agree to be married. With the help of Friar Laurence, who hopes to reconcile the two families through their children's union, they are married secretly the next day. Juliet's cousin Tybalt, offended that Romeo had sneaked into the Capulet ball, challenges him to a duel.
The play begins with Capulet throwing a feast. Parties are an easy way of getting to know people, Capulet’s good intention is to find a husband (Paris, “But woo her, gentle Paris.”) for his daughter. Benvolio, on the other hand, his good intention is to take Romeo to the party to help him overcome being love-sick for Rosaline. Although, he chooses Juliet - not the best choice. Everything goes wrong, as Romeo is recognised by Tybalt, who is angry already at the gate-crashing of the Montagues.
In Act 1, Romeo who is infatuated by Rosaline (who we never meet), goes to the party held by Lord Capulet in order to see Rosaline. He is persuaded by Mercutio and Benvolio to compare Rosaline to the women at the party; the intention being to show Romeo that there is nothing special about Rosaline. He meets Juliet at the party and forgetting Rosaline, falls in love with her. However, the Act ends with the lovers discovering each other’s identity, and the threatening fact that, as Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo a Montague, they belong to feuding families, who would never let them see each other. Some of the most important themes of the play are shown in Act 1 Scene 5.
Romeo, only wanting to see a girl he loves, inadvertently causes Tybalt to despise him. In addition to strengthening the feud between the two houses, Romeo also meets Juliet during this party and they fall in love, but after being separated by the nurse, they each realize that their love is impossible due to their families’ dispute. Upon realizing that Romeo is a Montague, Juliet exclaims, “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late!”(I, v, 151-152). Juliet immediately recognizes the conflict that Romeo has caused... ... middle of paper ... ...lips and in [her] cheeks”(V.iii.94-95).
Act I, scene III Meanwhile Don John, Don Pedro's bastard brother, hides his hateful nature, waiting for the right moment to cause problems for his brother and Claudio, who he thinks has taken his place in his brother's affections. He hopes Claudio's desire to wed Hero will give him an occasion to cause some mischief. Act II, scene I Leonato and his daughter and niece are ready for the party to begin. While Beatrice complains that there is no man who can match her spirit, Hero obediently consents to her father's counsel to accept the Prince when he woos.
