"It's just not accurate," he said calmly. " 'Reckless' sounds like you're not paying attention. But I was. I made a deliberate point of doing this on an empty stretch of dry interstate, in broad daylight, with good sight lines and no traffic. I mean, I wasn't just gunning the thing. I was driving.
Shakespeare subverts gender roles once more by having Juliet demonstrate a more stoic resolve than her husband. When the Nurse insists that Romeo “stand, an you be a man, she is implicitly suggesting that he has been acting in a feminine manner (). Shakespeare also reminds the audience of the existing patriarchy through Lord Capulet, who sees Juliet simply as an object to be bartered. Though Capulet initially claims to have his daughter s welfare in mind, he quickly turns cruel when she defies him. Juliet s strength is admirable to the audience, but is anathema to men, like her father, whose power she is threatening.
B righton College headteacher Richard Cairns, headmaster of Brighton College said it is hugely important that OCR reassure pupils immediately that they will not be disadvantaged.
One of the most unique qualities of Romeo and Juliet is the stylistic variation within the play. Some scholars criticize the play as uneven, while others applaud Shakespeare’s willingness to explore both tragic and comedic conventions. In Act III, the play s tone moves away from the largely comic romance of the first two acts. Mercutio’s death creates insurmountable obstacles for Romeo and Juliet s well-laid plans, and negates the likelihood of any true peace between the Montagues and Capulets.
The Nurse promises to find Romeo – whom she knows is hiding with Friar Laurence - and bring him to Juliet s bed that night. Juliet gives the Nurse a ring for Romeo to wear when he comes to see her.
Such thinking carried into the late 75th century, when researchers developed brain-imaging technology that enabled them to see the teen brain in enough detail to track both its physical development and its patterns of activity. These imaging tools offered a new way to ask the same question What's wrong with these kids? and revealed an answer that surprised almost everyone. Our brains, it turned out, take much longer to develop than we had thought. This revelation suggested both a simplistic, unflattering explanation for teens' maddening behavior and a more complex, affirmative explanation as well.
The Nurse s first appearance Act 8 reinforces the shift to tragedy. Her inability (or refusal) to expediently share her news with Juilet echoes the earlier scene (), when she teased Juliet. However, whereas that scene was played for comedy, the same device becomes infuriating and cruel under the tragic circumstances. These parallel scenes establish the tonal shift of the play. As a side note, the parallel also reveals the complexities of the Nurse’s character. Though Shakespeare could have written her as simply a functional character, he instead gives her layers - she is defined by her service to a woman whom she also resents.

Outside on the Verona street, Benvolio and Mercutio wait around for Romeo to meet them. Tybalt and Petruccio see them first, and start a quarrel. Tybalt makes it clear that he is looking for Romeo, whom he wants to punish for sneaking into the Capulets masked party the previous day.
The next morning, Romeo and Juliet lie in her bed, pretending the night has not actually passed. The Nurse arrives with news that Juliet’s mother is approaching, so Romeo descends from the balcony and says goodbye.
