Everyone Keeps Secrets By-: Seanna henry, amanda hill, maddy

Metaphor-comparing two unlike things without using like or as: Act 1, scene 4: “My soul is add of lead, and it's so heavy it keeps me down”.

Imagery-explaining what a scene looks like so you can imagine it in your head: Act 1, scene 4: “Her wagon spokes made of long spinners legs. The cover of the wings of the grasshoppers”.

Conflict-a problem: Act 1, scene 1: “The Capulet’s and Montagues are fighting.”

Simile-comparing two unlike things using like or as: Act 1, scene 4: “You're being a stick in the mud, as cautious as a policeman on night patrol”.

Tragic hero-a hero that dies: Act 5: “Romeo at the end kills himself”.

Rhyme/Rhythm-words having the same sound at the end: Let two more summers wither their prides eve we may think her ripe to be a bride.


[To a Servingman] What lady is that, which doth

enrich the hand

Of yonder knight?


I know not, sir.


O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!

It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night

Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear;

Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!

So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows,

As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows.

The measure done, I'll watch her place of stand,

And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand.

Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!

For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

2Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.

Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.


Then have my lips the sin that they have took.


Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!

Give me my sin again.


You kiss by the book


How art thou out of breath, when thou hast breath

To say to me that thou art out of breath?

The excuse that thou dost make in this delay

Is longer than the tale thou dost excuse.

Is thy news good, or bad? answer to that;

Say either, and I'll stay the circumstance:

Let me be satisfied, is't good or bad?


Well, you have made a simple choice; you know not

how to choose a man: Romeo! no, not he; though his

face be better than any man's, yet his leg excels

all men's; and for a hand, and a foot, and a body,

though they be not to be talked on, yet they are

past compare: he is not the flower of courtesy,

but, I'll warrant him, as gentle as a lamb. Go thy

ways, wench; serve God. What, have you dined at home?


Hold, daughter: I do spy a kind of hope,

Which craves as desperate an execution.

As that is desperate which we would prevent.

If, rather than to marry County Paris,

Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself,

Then is it likely thou wilt undertake

A thing like death to chide away this shame,

That copest with death himself to scape from it:

And, if thou darest, I'll give thee remedy.


O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris,

From off the battlements of yonder tower;

Or walk in thievish ways; or bid me lurk

Where serpents are; chain me with roaring bears;

Or shut me nightly in a charnel-house,

O'er-cover'd quite with dead men's rattling bones,

With reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls;

Or bid me go into a new-made grave

And hide me with a dead man in his shroud;

Things that, to hear them told, have made me tremble;

And I will do it without fear or doubt,

To live an unstain'd wife to my sweet love

(Undraws the curtains)

What, dress'd! and in your clothes! and down again!

I must needs wake you; Lady! lady! lady!

Alas, alas! Help, help! my lady's dead!

O, well-a-day, that ever I was born!

Some aqua vitae, ho! My lord! my lady!



What noise is here?


O lamentable day!


What is the matter?


Look, look! O heavy day!


O me, O me! My child, my only life,

Revive, look up, or I will die with thee!

Help, help! Call help.
