I don't know the answer to two of my questions for Romeo and Juliet the first one . . .

Although Rome and Juliet is a tragedy, much of the play is quite comic. Outline briefly the comic elements in this scene. To whatextent is romeos infatuation for Rosaline Comic?


Is Romeo in love with Rosaline or is it infatuation? What is the diffrence? If you had a friend in a similar situation to Romeo's, what advice would you give that person?

To answer the first question look at the words "bawdy" and "punning"...
