Character Foils & Puns

You may have noticed Shakespeare’s use of wordplay in R&J. For example, Shakespeare makes liberal use of puns, or play on words, that have two meanings. In Act II, Scene 4, Mercutio and Romeo engage in an exchange in which Mercutio scolds Romeo for giving his friends “the counterfeit” the night before. Romeo, still on top of the world after spending the evening with his new love Juliet, goes along with Mercuito’s joke. The next several lines capitalize on the dual meanings of counterfeit and slip.

  • Why do you think puns are known as “thinking man’s humor?”
  • In this scene, the wordplay between Romeo and Mercutio helps characterize their friendship and reveals contrasts between them. Compare the characters in the chart on page 281.

Exit TicketAnalysis Practice
  • Shakespeare writes dialogue in a variety of styles in this act: (1) rhyming couplets in iambic pentameter, (2) unrhymed (blank) iambic verse, and (3) nonmetrical prose.
  • In other words, why does Shakespeare have some characters speak metrically and others not, some rhyme and others not? Examine various combinations of these three dialogic syles found so far in Act II and judge his possible artistic purpose in all cases.
  • Justify your claims by referring to particular examples of each style, assess his purpose in doing so.
  • 3-4 paragraphs.
