i know i didn't want the answers i just wanted help
At the great hall of the Capulets Romeo sees Juliet from across the room, and asks a servingman who she is. The servingman does not know. Romeo is transfixed; Rosaline vanishes from his mind and he declares that he has never been in love until this moment. Moving through the crowd Romeo approaches Juliet and touches her hand. In a dialogue laced with religious metaphors that figure Juliet as a saint and Romeo as a pilgrim who wishes to erase his sin, he tries to convince her to kiss him, since it is only through her kiss that he might be absolved. Juliet agrees to remain still as Romeo kisses her. Thus, in the terms of their conversation, she takes his sin from him. Juliet then makes the logical leap that if she has taken Romeo’s sin from him, his sin must now reside in her lips, and so they must kiss again.
WOULD THIS BE IT.......
If you use the link I sent, read the right hand column (modern English) and compare it to the left column (Shakespeare's English) when you need to. Once you read it in modern English, it'll be a lot clearer for you.
After you've read the section you need for this, please list your specific questions separately.
These are your directions:
1. analyse the reason for this (her first words being a sonnet)
2. analyse the language and the imagery (in the sonnet)
3. what do we learn about her feeling?
Which 8 lines make up the sonnet?
Sorry -- 14 lines, not 8.
The sonnet is arranged like this in Act I, scene 5:
Romeo - 4 lines
Juliet - 4 lines
Romeo - 1 line
Juliet - 1 line
Romeo - 2 lines
Juliet - 1 line
Romeo - 1 line
Do you see it all? (lines 93-105)
Try writing it out separately, as if it were just one poem, without the characters' names. You need to see it and read it and analyze it as a 14-line poem (sonnet).
Love at first sight: The ball
Romeo sees her first. Their first words are a shared sonnet: analyse the reason for this.
Analyse the language and the imagery.
What do we learn about her feeling's?
Yes, those are your directions.
Follow my suggestions in my last post. You need to be able to analyze this sonnet.
Thank very much that's a great help,would this be the reason why their is sonnetWhen Romeo and Juliet meet they speak just fourteen lines before their first kiss. These fourteen lines make up a shared sonnet, with a rhyme scheme. A sonnet is a perfect, idealized poetic form often used to write about love.
Use the last sentence. The rest is just restating what's already been said in your instructions.
Then analyze the poem. Do you know how to analyze a poem?
no not really
Always keep your instructions in mind as you analyze:
Their first words are a shared sonnet: - analyse the reason for this.
- Analyse the language and the imagery.
- What do we learn about her feeling's?
You should also
You should also read up on how Shakespeare used the sonnet form outside of his plays:
A sonnet is a perfect, idealized poetic form often used to write about love.Romeo uses religious imagery to convey his feelings. The use of words such as "holy shrine, faith, pilgrims, sin, devotion" give a feeling of deep sincerity to his first talk with Juliet. Likewise she uses similar words and comparisons to convey her feelings. Their first conversation is written as a sonnet, this was a popular option at the time the play was penned. The young couple get together and stand palm to palm. The significance of this gesture is that pilgrims brought palm leaves back from the Holy Land and were subsequently known as "palmers." They use very strong poetic words in the conversation and are both obviously in love with the other. They use their palms as a symbol of their lips before they kiss, "For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss"
Is this what i could right for it all is their anything else i could add sorry for all these questions
could you please check this!
Do. Not. Plagiarize.
If you are not clear on what plagiarism is and how NOT to plagiarize from a source, read through this entire webpage from Capital Community College in Connecticut:
All of it. Including the examples.
i wasn't going to right this down i was just going to wright ideas down on my page an use them
Go back to your instructions.
Answer the 3 questions.
When Romeo and Juliet meet they speak just fourteen lines before their first kiss. These fourteen lines make up a shared sonnet, A sonnet is a perfect, way of forming a poem writing about love.
In the fifth scene the lovers share a sonnet which use images of saints and pilgrims. Romeo uses imagery to describe his feelings such as "holy shrine, faith, pilgrims, sin, devotion" giving Juliet an impression for the first time. Romeo describes Juliet's hands a “holy shrine” even touching her hand he will know if he loves her. The young couple get together and stand palm to palm. They use their palms as a symbol of their lips before they kiss, "For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss"
Romeo wants to kiss Juliet so
he can be absolved. “to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss”. Juliet says Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this,
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss meaning Good pilgrim, you don’t give your hand enough credit. By holding my hand you show polite devotion. After all, pilgrims touch the hands of statues of saints. Holding one palm against another is like a kiss.
