Enter Romeo and also Juliet aloft.

JULIETWilt thou it is in gone? that is not yet near day.It was the nightingale, and also not the lark,That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear.Nightly she sings ~ above yond pomegranate tree.Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.5

ROMEOIt was the lark, the herald that the morn,No nightingale. Look, love, what envious streaksDo lace the severing clouds in yonder east.Night’s candles are charred out, and jocund dayStands tiptoe ~ above the misty mountain-tops.10I have to be gone and also live, or stay and also die.

Romeo and also Juliet wake after their an initial and (spoiler alert) only night together. Castle don"t want to speak good-bye, so Juliet tries to say the bird lock hear is the nightingale (meaning it"s tho night), not the lark (meaning it"s morning). It"s cute, however Romeo reminds her that if he stays, he"ll it is in killed. 

JULIETYond irradiate is not daylight, I recognize it, I.It is some meteor that the sun exhaledTo it is in to thee this night a torchbearerAnd irradiate thee ~ above thy way to Mantua.15Therefore stay yet. You need’st not to be gone.

ROMEOLet me be ta’en; let me be placed to death.I am content, so thou wilt have it so.I’ll to speak yon gray is not the morning’s eye;’Tis yet the pale reflex of Cynthia’s brow.20Nor the is not the lark whose notes do beatThe vaulty sky so high above our heads.I have an ext care to stay than will certainly to go.Come death and welcome. Juliet wills that so.How is ’t, mine soul? stop talk. It is no day.25

Juliet do the efforts again, this time speak the irradiate they check out isn"t indigenous the sun, but from part meteor or other, so it"s no day yet. Romeo goes together with her this time and says she"s right: it"s not the lark, it"s not the sun, it"s not morning. He end by welcoming death, due to the fact that Juliet appears to desire him to die (because she keeps do the efforts to get him come stay).

JULIETIt is, that is. Hie hence, begone, away!It is the lark the sings so the end of tune,Straining harsh discords and unpleasing sharps.Some to speak the lark renders sweet division.This doth not so, because that she divideth us.30Some to speak the lark and also loathèd toad adjusted eyes.O, now I would they had adjusted voices too,Since arm from arm that voice doth us affray,Hunting thee therefore with hunt’s-up to the day.O, now begone. Much more light and also light the grows.35

ROMEOMore light and also light, an ext dark and also dark our woes.

Reality sink in because that Juliet and she speak Romeo he has to gain up and get moving. Romeo states that the lighter it it s okay outside, the darker things acquire for them. 

Enter Nurse.

NURSE Madam.


NURSEYour lady mom is coming to your chamber.The job is broke; it is in wary; watch about.She exits. 40

JULIETThen, window, let job in, and let life out.

ROMEOFarewell, farewell. One kiss and also I’ll descend.

They kiss, and Romeo descends.

The Nurse come in and also tells Juliet her mom is on she way. Romeo and also Juliet re-superstructure a critical kiss, and also Romeo climbs down the ladder.

JULIETArt thou gone so? Love, lord, ay husband, friend!I must hear from thee every work in the hour,For in a minute over there are many days.45O, through this count ns shall be lot in yearsEre ns again behold my Romeo.

ROMEO Farewell.I will certainly omit no opportunityThat may convey my greetings, love, to thee.50

JULIETO, think’st thou us shall ever before meet again?

ROMEOI doubt the not; and also all these woes chandelier serveFor sweet discourses in our time to come.

JULIETO God, I have an ill-divining soul!Methinks I check out thee, currently thou art so low,55As one dead in the bottom the a tomb.Either my eyesight falls short or you lookest pale.

ROMEOAnd to trust me, love, in my eye so carry out you.Dry sorrow drinks our blood. Adieu, adieu.He exits.

JULIETO Fortune, Fortune, every men call thee fickle.60If thou arts fickle, what dost thou with himThat is renowned because that faith? it is in fickle, Fortune,For then i hope thou it must be not keep him long,But send that back.

As Romeo descends the ladder, Juliet makes him promise to store in touch. They have actually a hard time speak goodbye, but Romeo assures Juliet everything will work-related out. Juliet isn"t for this reason sure—she has a bad feeling around this. She also says that as she"s looking down at Romeo (who"s climbing under the ladder) it"s as though she"s seeing him in ~ the bottom that a tomb. She states he watch pale, and also he says that she does, too. They leave it in ~ that, and also Juliet begs Fortune to send Romeo earlier to her. 

Enter Lady Capulet.

LADY CAPULET Ho, daughter, space you up?65

JULIETWho is ’t that calls? the is mine lady mother.Is she not down so so late or increase so early?What unaccustomed cause procures she hither?

Juliet descends.

LADY CAPULETWhy, how now, Juliet?

JULIET Madam, i am no well.70

Before Juliet has actually time to deal with her hair or anything, her mother comes in. 

LADY CAPULETEvermore weeping for your cousin’s death?What, it must be thou to wash him indigenous his grave with tears?An if you couldst, you couldst not make him live.Therefore have done. Part grief shows lot oflove,75But lot of grief shows still some want of wit.

JULIETYet permit me weep for such a emotion loss.

LADY CAPULETSo candlestick you feeling the loss, but not the friendWhich friend weep for.

JULIET emotion so the loss,80I can not choose however ever weep the friend.

LADY CAPULETWell, girl, she weep’st not so much for his deathAs the the villain lives which slaughtered him.

JULIETWhat villain, madam?

LADY CAPULET That same villain, Romeo.85

JULIET, asideVillain and he be many miles asunder.—God pardon him. I execute with all my heart,And yet no male like he doth grieve mine heart.

LADY CAPULETThat is since the traitor murderer lives.

JULIETAy, madam, native the with of this my hands.90Would none yet I could venge mine cousin’s death!

LADY CAPULETWe will have vengeance for it, fear thou not.Then weep no more. I’ll send come one in Mantua,Where that very same banished runagate doth live,Shall offer him such an unaccustomed dram95That the shall quickly keep Tybalt company.And then, ns hope, thou wilt be satisfied.

JULIETIndeed, I never ever shall it is in satisfiedWith Romeo till i behold him—dead—Is my bad heart, so because that a kinsman vexed.100Madam, if you could find out yet a manTo be affected by each other a poison, I would temper it,That Romeo should, upon receipt thereof,Soon sleep in quiet. O, just how my love abhorsTo hear that named and cannot concerned him105To wreak the love i bore mine cousinUpon his body the hath slaughtered him.

They manage to have a conversation about "that villain Romeo" in i m sorry Lady Capulet misinterprets 99.9% of everything that Juliet says. Juliet is nice clever with her wording right here so that every time she"s talking around how lot she loves Romeo and longs to be with him, her mommy interprets it together hatred for Romeo and a desire to check out him punished because that killing Tybalt. 

LADY CAPULETFind you the means, and I’ll uncover such a man.But now I’ll phone call thee joyful tidings, girl.

JULIETAnd delight comes well in together a needy time.110What space they, beseech her Ladyship?

LADY CAPULETWell, well, thou hast a careful father, child,One who, to placed thee from thy heaviness,Hath sorted out a sudden day of joyThat thou expects not, nor i looked no for.115

JULIETMadam, in happy time! What work is that?

LADY CAPULETMarry, mine child, beforehand next Thursday mornThe gallant, young, and also noble gentleman,The ar Paris, at Saint Peter’s ChurchShall happily do thee there a joyful bride.120

But sufficient talk about death and vengeance. Lady Capulet states she has good news: in 2 days, Juliet will be marrying Paris.

JULIETNow, by Saint Peter’s Church, and Peter too,He shall not make me over there a joyful bride!I wonder in ~ this haste, that I should wedEre the that need to be husband concerns woo.I pray you, tell mine lord and father, madam,125I will not get married yet, and when I perform I swearIt shall be Romeo, who you know I hate,Rather 보다 Paris. These room news indeed!

No way, says Juliet. She tells her mommy she"d quite marry Romeo—which, the course, Lady Capulet doesn"t recognize is: a) 100% true, and b) already done. 

LADY CAPULETHere comes her father. Tell him so yourself,And see how he will take the at her hands.130

Enter Capulet and also Nurse.

Lady Capulet says, "Oh really? fine you can be the one come tell her dad. Below he comes."

CAPULETWhen the sunlight sets, the planet doth drizzle dew,But for the sunset of my brother’s sonIt rains downright.How now, a conduit, girl? What, still in tears?Evermore show’ring? In one little body135Thou counterfeits a bark, a sea, a wind.For still thy eyes, which i may contact the sea,Do ebb and also flow with tears; the bark thy body is,Sailing in this salt flood; the winds her sighs,Who, raging with thy tears and they with them,140Without a sudden calm, will oversetThy tempest-tossèd body.—How now, wife?Have you ceded to she our decree?

Capulet enters, pleased with himself for arranging such a great marriage because that his daughter. He knows his arrangement will deal with everything, and also he asks his wife if she"s yielded the great news yet.

LADY CAPULETAy, sir, however she will none, she provides you thanks.I would certainly the fool were married to her grave.145

Lady Capulet says, yep, she did, however Juliet won"t get married Paris. Lady Capulet adds the she desire Juliet were "married to she grave," together in dead. (Hm. Us think she"s going to regret that an option of wording...)

CAPULETSoft, take me through you, take me with you, wife.How, will she none? Doth she not offer us thanks?Is she not proud? Doth she no count she blessed,Unworthy together she is, that we have actually wroughtSo worthy a gentleman to be she bride?150

JULIETNot proud girlfriend have, but thankful the you have.Proud have the right to I never ever be the what i hate,But thankful even for hate that is intended love.

CAPULETHow, how, how, how? Chopped logic? What is this?“Proud,” and “I thank you,” and also “I give thanks to you not,”155And however “not proud”? Mistress minion you,Thank me no thankings, nor proud me no prouds,But fettle her fine joints ’gainst Thursday nextTo go with Paris come Saint Peter’s Church,Or I will certainly drag thee ~ above a hurdle thither.160Out, you green-sickness carrion! Out, girlfriend baggage!You tallow face!

Lord Capulet blows up. He speak Juliet she"ll acquire her butt to the church or he"ll traction her there. Climate he start calling her names.

LADY CAPULET Fie, fie, what, are you mad?

JULIET, kneelingGood father, i beseech girlfriend on mine knees,Hear me through patience yet to speak a word.165

CAPULETHang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!I tell thee what: obtain thee to church o’ Thursday,Or never after look at me in the face.Speak not; reply not; execute not prize me.My finger itch.—Wife, us scarce assumed us170blessedThat God had actually lent us but this just child,But currently I watch this one is one as well much,And the we have a curse in having her.Out top top her, hilding.175

It"s for this reason bad, Lady Capulet tries come rein the in and also Juliet begs the to listen to she for simply a second. However Capulet has actually lost it. The throws some much more nasty names in ~ Juliet and then says that having her because that a daughter is a curse.

NURSE God in heaven bless her!You are to blame, my lord, to price her so.

CAPULETAnd why, my Lady Wisdom? organize your tongue.Good Prudence, smatter through your gossips, go.

NURSEI speak no treason.180

CAPULET O, God ’i’ g’ eden!

NURSEMay no one speak?

CAPULET Peace, friend mumbling fool!Utter her gravity o’er a gossip’s bowl,For below we require it not.185

LADY CAPULET You room too hot.

CAPULET god’s bread, it renders me mad.Day, night, hour, tide, time, work, play,Alone, in company, still my treatment hath beenTo have her matched. And having currently provided190A gentleman the noble parentage,Of same demesnes, youthful, and nobly ligned,Stuffed, together they say, v honorable parts,Proportioned as one’s believed would great a man—And then to have a wretched puling fool,195A whining mammet, in her fortune’s tender,To price “I’ll not wed. I cannot love.I am as well young. Ns pray you, pardon me.”But, an you will certainly not wed, ok pardon you!Graze whereby you will, you shall not home with me.200Look come ’t; think ~ above ’t. I carry out not use to jest.Thursday is near. Lay hand on heart; advise.An you be mine, I’ll offer you to my friend.An you it is in not, hang, beg, starve, dice in the streets,For, by my soul, okay ne’er identify thee,205Nor what is mine shall never do thee good.Trust to ’t; bethink you. I’ll no be forsworn.

He exits.

Both the Nurse and also Lady Capulet shot to intervene, however Lord Capulet is too warm under the collar to protect against yelling and listen. He speak Juliet the she"s his, and he wants to offer her to his friend. (Ick.) that adds the if she doesn"t get married Paris, he"ll litter her the end in the street; she can beg for food or starve.

JULIETIs there no pity sitting in the cloudsThat sees right into the bottom of mine grief?—O sweet my mother, cast me not away.210Delay this marriage for a month, a week,Or, if you perform not, do the bridal bedIn that dim monument whereby Tybalt lies.

LADY CAPULETTalk not to me, because that I’ll not speak a word.Do together thou wilt, because that I have done through thee.215

She exits.

After mr Capulet storms out, Juliet transforms to her mom for help. How can a mother turn her own daughter out of the house? Juliet begs her mommy to uncover a way even to hold-up the marital relationship with Paris. However Lady Capulet claims she"s done through Juliet, and also she storms out, too.

JULIET, rising O God! O nurse, how shall this be prevented?My husband is on Earth, my faith in heaven.How shall that belief return again to EarthUnless the husband send it me native heavenBy leaving Earth? lull me; counsel me.—220Alack, alack, that heaven must practice stratagemsUpon therefore soft a topic as myself.—What sayst thou? aside from that thou no a word of joy?Some comfort, nurse.

With nobody else to revolve to, Juliet seeks comfort indigenous the Nurse. Juliet makes a instance for no abandoning she hubby: She"s already married, therefore marrying Paris would be a sin versus God, and an unthinkable betrayal of Romeo.

NURSE Faith, right here it is.225Romeo is banished, and also all the civilization to nothingThat he dares ne’er come earlier to an obstacle you,Or, if that do, the needs need to be by stealth.Then, since the instance so stands as currently it doth,I think it finest you married with the County.230O, he’s a lovely gentleman!Romeo’s a dishclout to him. One eagle, madam,Hath no so green, for this reason quick, so same an eyeAs Paris hath. Beshrew my an extremely heart,I think you space happy in this second match,235For that excels your first, or, if the did not,Your first is dead, or ’twere as good he wereAs living here and also you no usage of him.

JULIETSpeak’st she from your heart?

NURSEAnd native my heart too, else beshrew lock both.240

The Nurse disagrees. Romeo is gone, and Paris is here. And also marrying Paris would be a step up ~ above the society ladder. He"s much better looking and also a much much better catch. Also, he"s no a hated enemy, and um, there"s no other option. (Unless you count starving ~ above the street which, clearly, the Nurse walk not.) Juliet asks her if that"s her last answer, and also the Nurse states it certain is.



JULIETWell, you hast comforted me marvelous much.Go in and also tell my lady ns am gone,Having displeased mine father, come Lawrence’ cell245To do confession and also to it is in absolved.

NURSEMarry, i will; and also this is wisely done.She exits.

JULIETAncient damnation, O many wicked fiend!Is it much more sin to great me hence forswornOr come dispraise my lord v that very same tongue250Which she on foot praised him with above compareSo countless thousand times? Go, counselor.Thou and also my bosom henceforth shall be twain.I’ll come the Friar to understand his remedy.If every else fail, myself have power to die.255

She exits.

Juliet cannot believe this is happening. Also the nurse isn"t on her side anymore. Juliet has actually only one ally left: Friar Lawrence. If the can"t help her, suicide can be her only option.
