2 Who is to Blame? Throughout this unit, it will be your job to decide who is to blame for the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. At the end of the play, you will have to deliver a 1-1 ½ min speech arguing where the fault lies. The choices are: *Tybalt *Romeo *Juliet *Friar Laurence *Friar John *Balthasar *Lord Capulet *Nurse *Paris *Mercutio As you read the play, pay attention to each character and who you think may be responsible. Your opinion may change over time, so do not be afraid about looking at characters from different perspectives. You will have to back up your opinion with multiple pieces of evidence, so take notes, close read, mark up your book, and most of all, pay attention!

4 The Prologue Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 5 From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows, Do with their death bury their parents strife. The fearful passage of their death-marked love, 10 And the continuance of their parents rage, Which, but their children s end, naught could remove, Is now the two hours traffic of our stage; The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

8 Scene Guide For each act, you will be completing a Scene Guide to help you understand and follow the important elements of your reading. For each scene, thoroughly complete each section in the space provided. Use short phrases or words to keep your note-taking short and succinct. The chart below will assist you in completing the activity. The Act One Prologue section has been completed for you as an example. Act 1 Example In this section, list the major characters who are a part of the action. It is not necessary to list minor characters who are not involved in the plot. In this section, list the important action that takes place in the scene. In this section, explain how loyalty plays an important roll in decisions the characters make in the scene. Chorus Prologue The Chorus tells the audience about two enemies who have been fighting for years, a pair of lovers who are doomed, and how their deaths will be the only thing that will end the fighting between the two families. The Chorus presents us with the entire plot of the play, letting us know from the start that the story is a tragedy and will not end well. The main problem is that the lovers have conflicting loyalties (they are loyal to their families and also loyalty each other). Now the audience will see how the story actually unfolds.
