SPOT THAT LANGUAGE FEATURE…

JULIET Go, get thee hence – for I will not away.

Exit FRIAR LAWRENCE

What’s here? A cup closed in my true love’s hand?

Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end.

O churl! – drunk all, and left no friendly drop

To help me after? I will kiss thy lips.

Haply some poison doth yet hang on them

To make me die with a restorative.

(kissing him) Thy lips are warm

Enter PARIS’S PAGE, with the MEN OF THE WATCH.

WATCHMEN 1 Lead, boy. Which way?

Juliet Yea, noise? Then I’ll be brief! - (She snatches ROMEO’S dagger from his belt). O happy dagger! This is thy sheath! (stabbing herself) – There rust and let me die.

She falls across ROMEO’S body.

LANGUAGE FEATURES CHALLENGE – You have 5 minutes to copy and label as many examples of language features, in the extract below, as you can.

PARIS Stop thy unhallowed toil, vile Montague!

Can vengeance be pursued further than death?

Condemned villain, I do apprehend thee!

Obey, and go with me, for thou must die.

ROMEO I must indeed – and therefore came I hither.

Good gentle youth, tempt not a desperate man.

Fly hence and leave me. Think upon these gone –

Let them affright thee. I beseech thee, youth,

Put not another sin upon my head

By urging me to fury. O, be gone!

By heaven, I love thee better than myself.

Stay not, be gone! Live – and hereafter say

A madman’s mercy bid thee run away.

PARIS (Drawing his sword) I do defy thy conjurations

And apprehend thee for a felon here!

ROMEO Wilt thou provoke me? Then have at thee boy!

(They fight)

LANGUAGE FEATURES CHALLENGE – You have 5 minutes to copy and label as many examples of language features, in the extract below, as you can.

Fr. Lawrence Who bare my letter then to Romeo?

Friar John I could not sent it – here it is again –

Nor get a messenger to bring it thee,

So fearful were they of infection.

Fr. Lawrence Unhappy fortune! By my brotherhood,

The letter was not nice, but full of charge,

Of dear import- and neglecting it

May do much danger! Friar John, go hence –

Get me an iron crow, and bring it straight

Unto my cell.

Friar John Brother, I’ll go and bring it thee (EXIT).

Fr. Lawrence Now, must I to the monument alone.

Within this three hours will fair Juliet awake.

She will beshrew me much that Romeo

Hath had no notice of these accidents.

But I will write again to Mantua,

And keep her at my cell till Romeo come.

Poor living corse, closed in a dead man’s tomb!
