    What are the arguments Capulet and Paris have to convince each other why Juliet should or shouldn’t get married?
    Paris was triying to convince Capulet to let him marry his daugther, Juliet, but Capulet was against that idea, he was saying that Juliet was too young to get marry, he didn`t want Juliet to have experience of her mother, because sometimes when the girls marry to young, can have a non-happy life.

    • Good work. 🙂 A few corrections.

    3.What do we learn about the Capulet and the Montague based on the prince’s speech? What we learn about the Capulets and the Montagues is that they were long term enemies. And they hate each other, also because they fight a lot between them, abd they disturb the peace at the streets of Verona.

    • Good work Lauris! 🙂 A few corrections though.

      Montague and Capulet reacted by attempting to join the fight made by the servants. Later being stopped by their wives that thought they were very old to fight. THIS IS A FRAGMENT.

      Maybe you could say:

      Later, they were stopped by their wives that thought they were very old to fight.

      Not both of the wives believed they were old! Only Lady Capulet implies that when she says:

      “A crutch, a crutch! Why call you for a sword?”

    2. Why does Benvolio draw in the fight between the servants?
    Answer:
    Benvolio draws in the fight between the servants because he is trying to stop the struggle between the servants of the Capulets, Sampson and Gregory, and the servants of the Montague, Abram and Balthasar, which are servants of his family.

    an oximoron is when you compare 2 contradictory words, one exaple is loving hate, heavy lightness, and by that he means that love is contradictory

      A couple of mistakes.

      He said that in that party there would be very pretty women, even prettier than Rosaline, that he should go and compare her beauty with that of others, and he agreed because he wanted to see Rosaline again.

    The nurse is very uncultured how do we know that? Explain using the language she uses.
    Because she always interrupts Lady Capulet and the lenguage she uses is disrespectful and the words she uses are rude.

    • Good Vale. She specifically talks about her breasts and how when Juliet was a baby, she had fallen and hurt her forehead. And that her husband (the nurse’s) asked Juliet if she was going to fall backwards, which means that she would have sex and that Juliet answered innocently “Yes”.

    1. What do Gregory and Sampson say about Montague’s men and women?
    -The people who walked in the middle of the road were considered brave and audacious, while who walked near the wall were considered the weak people (in these road all the garbage is throwed. Place were no one want’s to walk, except the servants).
    Sampson and Gregory say that the Montague’s men and women were the weak ones, specially women because they were the ones that were pushed to the wall.

      Not exactly. They say that they would take the wall because that is insulting for the high classes.

      They would kill the men and would cut the women’s heads, after raping them.
