  1. Why does Tybalt become so upset, and how does Capulet respond to his rage? Tybalt becomes upset because he saw Romeo’s face in the party and Romeo is a Montague. Tybalt expressed his interest of Romeo leaving but the party was on and everyoine was having a good time. Capulet did not want Tybalt to disgrace his guests, he wants Tybalt to leave Romeo alone.
  2. Who is speaking the lines below and to whom do these lines refer? What do the speakers mean?
    a) “…Verona brags him
    To be a virtuous and well-governed youth.
    I would not for the wealth of all this town
    Here in my house do him disparagement.”

b) “…If he be married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed.” Juliet means that if Romeo was to marry someone else, she will marry no one else.

c) “My only love, sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late!” Juliet is talking about her love for Romeo. She was falling for her family’s greatest enemy’s son and when she gets to know this, it was all too late already because she loves him too much already.
