romeo and juliet

Explain how Romeo and Juliet each react upon learning each others identity.


Each character uses a metaphor.

Romeo states:

Is she a Capulet?
O dear account! my life is my foe's debt.

Ay, so I fear; the more is my unrest.

Here we watched Romeo refer to the news through a financial metaphor as if he knows this isn't going to work out, in fact he'll end up owing something.

Juliet says:

Go ask his name: if he be married.
My grave is like to be my wedding bed.

His name is Romeo, and a Montague;
The only son of your great enemy.

My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.

Juliet's metaphor likens her wedding day to a grave. She'd rather die than be with anyone other than Romeo.

I think the response from both of them shows dramatic emotion and demonstrates they both hoped for something that would succeed.
