In the balcony scene, Romeo says to the audience, Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this. This form of speech is F a monologue G dramatic irony H an aside J a soliloquy 13. Even though the balcony scene contains some stage directions by Shakespeare, modern directors and actors must A change the props and sets as well as some of the action to match the times change the original dialogue to fit the kind of stage on which the play will be performed research old productions of the play to discover how Shakespeare really meant it to be staged interpret the play s dialogue to decide where people are placed onstage and how they should move 14. ramatic irony occurs F whenever Shakespeare stages a fight G when the audience knows something that the characters in the play do not H when the friar believes he can unite the feuding families J when Juliet is insecure about Romeo s true feelings The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Act II 263

4 ONSTRUTE RESPONSE (20 points) 15. Throughout this and other plays by Shakespeare, moments of dramatic irony occur. Identify one of these moments.

Then, explain how the moment affects the audience as they watch the action and listen to the dialogue. 264 Holt Assessment: Literature, Reading, and Vocabulary

5 Answer Key The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Act II by William Shakespeare Selection Test, page 261 omprehension H 2. J F 4. J A 10. F Literary Focus H 14. G onstructed Response 15. Students responses will vary. A sample response follows: ramatic irony occurs when the audience knows something that the characters do not know. One moment of dramatic irony occurs in Scene 6 when Friar Laurence brings Romeo and Juliet together in marriage. He speaks to Romeo (just as Juliet is arriving) about love, but those lines also tell the audience what will happen in the play. Romeo is too involved in his love affair to see himself or his beloved in these words of warning. The friar warns Romeo that love that is too passionate turns destructive. The audience knows that this play is a tragedy and that the love of Romeo and Juliet will come to a bad end. The friar even foreshadows the death of the lovers when he begins his speech, These violent delights have violent ends. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Act III by William Shakespeare Selection Test, page 265 omprehension J 2. G J 4. G A 10. J Literary Focus H 14. G onstructed Response 15. Students responses will vary. A sample response follows: Juliet uses words with double meanings to mourn for her cousin Tybalt and remain true to her love for Romeo, her secret husband. When Lady apulet labels Romeo the villain who killed Tybalt, Juliet says, Villain and he be many miles asunder / God pardon him! I do, with all my heart; / and yet no man like he doth grieve my heart. Juliet seems to agree with her mother s opinion of Romeo, but the audience knows what Juliet is really saying: Romeo is not a villain. True, Romeo does grieve her here, but not for Tybalt s death; she grieves Romeo s absence. Juliet later exclaims about Romeo, To wreak the love I bore my cousin / Upon his body that hath slaughtered him! She means she would transfer the love she had for Tybalt to Romeo, not in blows but in kisses. 350 Holt Assessment: Literature, Reading, and Vocabulary
