Name three religious words Romeo uses to describe Juliet in the Sonnet in Act 1, Scene 5. Holy shrine, Saints and holy palmer.(palmer = pilgrim)
Describe one relationship between characters in the play which contrasts with the relationship between Romeo and Juliet. Paris and Lord Capulet treat love as a kind of deal - they don;t go into the emotions of love. Whereas Romeo and Juliet are all about the love, and not about the deal.
Is love always shown in a postitive way in Romeo and Juliet. No, it is also shown as a kind of madness, and that love can be destructive and dangerous.
