Lecture to the class

Me and Joe Muncur have decided to do a lecture to the class about the interpretations in the film Romeo and Juliet

Some interpretation:


Verona City-Mexico City

Tybalts death from sword fight-Car crash and shot

Me and Joe will be looking into these interpretations and more, why they would change thing, is it for us to have a better understanding on what’s going on or just to make the film more interesting

Metaphor work

In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare using a wide range of language throughout the play which when you closely analyse the thrase, it makes perfect sence

When Romeo is talking to Mercutio before the Capulet party, he keeps on talking about his love Rosealine on how perfect she is and he will never love another lady apart form her, and then Mercutio tells him that dreams do not always come true and he uses a metaphor “And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes”. In that he is saying that dreams are like wind, they can blow past you and let you down

By describing dreams like wind, he is saying dreams can fly away so quickly and hurt us badly anbuy saying this, Romeo has realised that he’s wasted so much time on a single girl when there are more out there

Metaphor in Romeo and Juliet

Your task is to identify the metaphor present in the following excerpt and then write a paragraph that explains the metaphor and its effect on the meaning of the passage it is embedded in.


True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air
And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.

Feel free to watch the presentation again from this lesson to remind you of how to approach a passage that contains a metaphor:

What i will be doing

What i will be doing in lessons are 2 activities with Sir and 1 lessons by myself

What Im doing with Sir is the Analytic Essay which we all have to do

I also would like to do the Dramatic Monologue with Sir because i like speaking aloud in class and especially from a script from Romeo and Juliet

The 1 activity I would like to do without Sir and in a group is “Film a scene from Romeo and Juliet”. This will be good fun and you are working with your peers and it will be enjoyable editing our work and make it to the best standard

Not what to say, How to say!

” these violent delights have violent ends” Said Frair Lawrence when Juliet and Romeo were getting married . He is saying that these to lovers are having a delightful lives but ,marrying each other will end in misery and death

Fate is revealed in Romeo and Juliet in many ways,but one of the most important is through the plot device of co-incidence,for example Romeo only found his true love Juliet from a co-incidence when him and Benvolio were walking down the street and luckily saw a servant who couldn’t read or write

Romeo and Juliet Practice

In the film and book Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare used many pieces of evidence for fate in the play. He talks about them to give clues to the readers so they do not loose interest and to keep them asking questions constantly for a more tense play. William Shakespeare ¬†played it smart and told us all that the two lovers will die so constantly through the play questions are asked of how they die, and these clues give ideas In what’s happening

My quote I am analysing today is when Mercutio died during a fight between him and Tybalt, when Romeo tried to stop the fight and Tybalt stabbed him under the arm. ” A plague a’both houses” is what he said will fighting for his life. I think that Mercutio was talking to both Tybalt and Romeo and I think it meant that he’s cursing both houses and hopes for them to die and this brawl will stop. Because of this the audience are confused and keep wondering why in the play they keep talking about death. This raises awareness that there are more deaths to come but people keep wondering who is the next victim in this dramatic film. It keeps the audience guessing and they know there’s more to come
