English

I have a Romeo & Juliet essay to be handed in 5 days from now. I mainly have to write about 'Act 3 Scene 1'.

The structure paper tells me to 'Comment on the way Shakespeare contrasts the mood of this scene with the romantic atmosphere of the previous scene (Act 2 Scene 6)' I really don't know what to put for this, and some other parts. When we read the play in class I found it hard to understand.

So if anyone could explain this scene to me so I know whats going on, it'd be very appreciated. Also, 'Act 2 Scene 6'.
