"Deny thy father and refuse thy name;Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,And I'll no longer be a Capulet."(2.2.34-36)
"O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?"(2.2.33)
Romeo and Juliet in the Capulet mansion
"Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?"(2.2.37)
Juliet is thinking about Romeo after just meeting him, while Romeo is hiding behind the corner waiting for her
"Tis but thy name that is my enemy; Thou art thyself, though not a Montague. What's Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,"(2.2.38-40)
Whats in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet."(2.2.42-44)
This alliteration is really important to note in this act, because of my motif conflict. Readers can see how Juliet is battling with the choices she must now make because of Romeo, and how just dating Romeo has sparked so many problems. This also shows the theme by showing how one problem has now led to many.
A theme that can be conveyed in this scene could be, that one problem can create many more. Even in this one thought bubble, readers can see how Romeo must be secretive, and lurk in the darkness. This could've all been avoided if they were honest to their families and faced their problems head on.
Shakespeare says how Juliet wishes her true love wasn't bound to just a name, or something she cant control about him. This shows Juliet's first rebellion, and conflict against her own family, because she just wants to be with Romeo. Shakespearez also shows the theme, by showing a rising problem now; Capulets and Montagues vs Romeo and Juliet.
