The Final Romeo and Juliet

He is meaning that Juliet is as beautiful as the sun and the moon is Rosaline and Juliet is more beautiful than her and is making Romeo’s grief from Rosaline go away. “But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?/It is the East, and Juliet is the sun/ Arise, fair sun and kill the envious moon/ who is already sick and pale with grief/ That thou her maid art more fair than she / Be not her maid, since she is envious;/ Her vestal liverly is but sick and green,/ And none but fools do it/ cast it off.”
Speaker: Juliet Meaning: Is talking about how the family fued is insignificant, its the love for they have for each other that is important “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet.”

Speaker: Friar LawrenceMeaning: There is both good and bad in people “For naught so vile that so on the earth doth live/ But to the earth some special good doth give… Two such opposed kings encamp them still/ In man as well as herbs- grace and rude will;/ And where the worser is predominant,/Full soon the canker death eats up that plant”
Speaker: Friar Lawrence Meaning: love or lust? he is saying this to Romeo when Romeo tells him about Juliet, because up until the previous night he had thought he was in love with Rosaline. men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes”
Speaker: Friar LawrenceMeaning: messy relationships have messy endings (foreshadowing their deaths ) “These violent delights have violent ends/ And in their triumph die, like fire and power, which as they kiss consume.”
