Act 1 Scene 1
Act 1 Scene 5
Romeo: ‘Out of her favour, where I am in love’
Romeo: ‘Beauty too rich for use, for earth
too dear’
Benvolio: ‘Alas, that love, so gentle in his view,
Should be so tyrannous and rough in proof!’
Romeo: ‘Here’s much to do with hate but more
with love.
Romeo: ‘For I ne'er saw true beauty till this
night’
Romeo: ‘A choking gall, and a preserving
sweet’
Tybalt: ‘I’ll not endure him’.
Romeo: ‘ I am not here./ This is not Romeo.
He’s some other where.
Romeo: ‘(taking JULIET’s hand) If I profane
with my unworthiest hand /This holy shrine’
Juliet: ‘You kiss by th' book’
Romeo: ‘She will not stay the siege of loving
terms,’
Sonnet Structure Line 93-95
Romeo: ‘Ay, so I fear. The more is my unrest’
In Act 1 Scene 5 Romeo states that Juliet’s beauty is divine ‘for earth too dear’ This
shows how passionately Romeo falls in love with Juliet at first sight. He links her beauty
to wealth ‘rich’ and ‘dear’ suggesting that women at the time were described as
possessions and objectified. Later in the scene he describes Juliet as a ‘holy shrine’
again suggesting that she is divine. This shows less objectification of Juliet as the
religious imagery hints at the purity of his love as Shakespeare’s audience were
religious. Romeo swears that he has never seen true beauty till this night. This is
effective as it makes the audience think about his declaration of love for Rosaline. This
creates the impression that his love for Juliet is more intense and real this time, or
alternatively highlights Romeo as a fickle character who falls in love easily. The way in
which Shakespeare structures the dialogue between Romeo and Juliet into a shared
sonnet implies that they are an equal match. Rather than Romeo writing sonnets to
Juliet that are not responded to as Shakespeare shows he has done in the past with
Rosaline, they share a sonnet highlighting the balance of their emotions. In the scene
we see Tybalt declaring his hate for Romeo to Capulet. Shakespeare uses the hate to
contrast the declarations of love which shows the two extreme emotions that all the
later events of the play are based around. In contrast, Juliet is more reserved when she
states that Romeo kisses by the book which shows that she is satisfied with the reality
of Romeo and doesn’t need elevate her emotions. At the end of the scene Romeo
declares that his love for Juliet is ‘my unrest’ which foreshadows the later events in the
play and highlights the power of Romeo’s love as he ignores his own warning.
Furthermore it emphasises Romeo’s tendency to chose not to control his own
emotions but to blame external factors as he shows himself to be a victim through this
statement.
