  • Foreshadowing is the presentation in a work of literature of hints and clues that tip the reader off as to what is to come later in the work.
  • Slide 18
  • A figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them (as in drowning in money);
  • Slide 19
  • A combination of contradictory or incongruous words (as cruel kindness)
  • Slide 20
  • The attribution of human characteristics to things, abstract ideas, etc, as for literary or artistic effect
  • Slide 21
  • A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things, usually by employing the words "like" or "as" also, but less commonly, "if", or "than". A simile differs from a metaphor in that the latter compares two unlike things by saying that the one thing is the other thing
  • Slide 22
  • A dramatic or literary form of discourse in which a character talks to himself or herself or reveals his or her thoughts without addressing a listener.
  • Slide 23
  • When the words and actions of the characters of a work of literature have a different meaning for the reader than they do for the characters. This is the result of the reader having a greater knowledge than the characters themselves.

  • Slide 25
  • Romeo: a)Define oxymoron. b)Explain how oxymoron is used by Romeo to explain his attitude towards love. Why, then, O brawling love! / O loving hate! / O anything, of nothing first create/ O heavy lightness! Serious vanity!/ Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms! /Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! Still waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I that feel no love in this.
  • Slide 26
  • Oxymoron Before Romeo meets Juliet, he is supposedly "in love" with Rosalind. When he is speaking to Benvolio, Romeo utters a string of paradoxes about his anguished, unrequited love, starting with, "O brawling love! O loving hate!" (1.1.176). His speech is a string of oxymorons. Oxymorons are self-contradictory combinations of words, like "jumbo shrimp". They show Romeo's exaggerated lovesickness, which later will later be contrasted to his genuine feelings for Juliet. Why, then, O brawling love! / O loving hate! / O anything, of nothing first create/ O heavy lightness! Serious vanity!/ Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms! /Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! Still waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I that feel no love in this.
  • Slide 27
  • Friar Laurence: a)Define simile. b)Identify the simile in the above quotation and explain how the Friar is using it to convey an important idea about love and to foreshadow future events. These violent delights have violent ends,/ And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume. Therefore, love moderately; long love doth so; / Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
  • Slide 28
  • Simile "violent delights" refers to the tryst between Romeo and Juliet. The speaker, Fryar Lawrence, is foreshadowing their eventual deaths and the strife between their rival families (the Montagues and Capulets) when he talks of "violent ends". "in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume" is a simile which means that, when Romeo and Juliet get together, they will consume one another with their kiss, and so find their end (eventual dual suicides) -- just as, (simile) when fire touches gunpowder ("fire and powder") the two explode and are used up. A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things, usually by employing the words "like" or "as" These violent delights have violent ends,/ And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, which as they kiss consume. Therefore, love moderately; long love doth so; / Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.
  • Slide 29
  • Romeo: a)Define personification. b)Explain how personification is being used in this quotation to reveal Romeos state of mind. Thou detestable maw, thou womb of death, Gorged with the dearest morsel of the earth, Thus I enforce thy rotten jaws open, And, in despite, Ill cram thee with more food!
  • Slide 30
  • Personificatio n When Romeo first arrives at Juliet's tomb, a house of death, he sees it as a monster. You hateful belly, you womb of death, Stuffed full with the dearest morsel of the earth, I will force your rotten jaws to open, And, in spite, I'll cram you fuller with more food! Death consumes its victims and in this case, Romeo's lover. For Romeo, Juliet is the most important (dearest morsel) on earth and death has swallowed her. He presented a similar image in Friar Lawrence's cell while awaiting Juliet. He challenged love- devouring death to try to destroy his joy Personification is the use of human characteristics to describe things, abstract ideas, etc. Thou detestable maw, thou womb of death, Gorged with the dearest morsel of the earth, Thus I enforce thy rotten jaws open, And, in despite, Ill cram thee with more food!

  • Prince: a)Explain the significance of the Princes declaration on the rest of the play. If ever you disturb our streets again Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
  • Slide 32
  • Foreshadowing Early in the play a confrontation between servants from the houses of Capulet and Montague leads to a street brawl. The Prince arrives and declares the violence between the two families has gone on for too long, and proclaims a death sentence upon anyone who disturbs the civil peace again. Shakespeare uses a lot of foreshadowing, and gives the reader hints at what is going to happen next. It makes the reader nervous or excited. In this case it foreshadows the events that will lead to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. If ever you disturb our streets again Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
  • Slide 33
  • Romeo: a)Define foreshadowing. b)When does Romeo make this comment? c)Why is it a good example of foreshadowing? I fear too early; for my mind misgives / Some consequence, yet hanging in the stars,/ Shall bitterly begin his fearful date/ With this nights revels, and expire the term/ Of a despised life closed in my breast/ By some vile forfeit of untimely death. / But he that hath the steerage of my course/ Direct my sail.
  • Slide 34
  • At the door of Capulet's house, when his friends are ready to go in, Romeo makes objections. He first says he's too melancholy. Mercutio tries to kid him out of it, but then Romeo says he shouldn't go in because he had a dream. Mercutio, mockingly declares that dreams are illusory wish-fulfillment. Finally, Benvolio (who really wants to go to the party) remarks that this "wind" (that is, Mercutio's windiness) is getting to be a real problem. Supper is over, and if they don't go into Capulet's soon, they will be too late. To this, Romeo replies: I fear too early; for my mind misgives / Some consequence, yet hanging in the stars,/ Shall bitterly begin his fearful date/ With this nights revels, and expire the term/ Of a despised life closed in my breast/ By some vile forfeit of untimely death. / But he that hath the steerage of my course/ Direct my sail. This is a foreshadowing of what actually happens in the rest of the play. A fateful chain of events ("consequence") does begin its appointed time ("date") that night, and that chain of events does terminate the duration ("expire the term") of Romeo's life with premature ("untimely") death. But, despite his premonitions, Romeo does go into Capulet's house. How seriously does he take himself? If he really believes what he says, why does he go in? Or is it that he has picked up Mercutio's mocking tone and is now mocking his own melancholy?

  • Romeo: a)When does Romeo make this comment and to whom? b)Explain how this quotation is a good example of dramatic irony. Death, that hath suckd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty,
  • Slide 36
  • Dramatic Irony Romeo is speaking to Juliet, who he thinks is dead, in the tomb near the end of the play. He says: Death has sucked the honey from your breath, but it has not yet ruined your beauty. This a good example of dramatic irony because the audience knows that the reason why death has not robbed Juliet of her beauty is because she is not really dead. Of course Romeo Death, that hath suckd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty,

  • Juliet: a)Explain the significance of these lines. If he be married/ My grave is like to be my wedding bed.
