aside -similar to a soliloquy, a remark made to the audience unheard by the other characters on stage -brief -lets the audience know what a character is really thinking or feeling -uses these to reveal character and advance the plot
monologue similar to a soliloquy- lengthy speech, but is addressed to the other characters, not the audience ex. Prince speech in Act 1 scene 1

What doubts and fears does Juliet express even as she realizes that Romeo loves her -she was afraid that her parents would her/catch Romeo -“I was too quickly won”-she was afraid Romeo would take advantage of her because she was too quickly won over -love was too fast- compares love to lightning (might be amazing now but might burn out)
What seems to be a weakness in Romeo’s character that Friar Lawrence points out? How does Romeo defend himself? -Friar says that Romeo falls in love too quickly and only with his eyes -Romeo said that Rosaline did not love him back so it wasn’t true love but Juliet loves him back so it is true love
Juliet is 13 and Romeo is not much older. In what ways is their love typical of adolescence and in what way is it not? -they fall in love quickly and thinks it is forever -not typical because most teenagers don’t get married a day after they meet
