Examine Act 3 Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet closely how does Shakespeare ensure that the scene is one of dramatic interest and how could a production enhance its effects The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeares most famous plays It was written in the late 16th century The contemporary society is reflected throughout the text one in which men rule and women are viewed as possessions In comparison to its predecessor Scene 5 is extremely long and mostly fast paced shown by commas Shakespeares use of language and stage directions eg enter Nurse hastily This scene is pivotal to the play things change as a result of this scene Scene 5 also has a dramatic mood swings and strong language and by its end changes the audiences views on more than one character Act 3 Scene 5 is focussed on Juliet and she remains on stage throughout The scene begins with love and ends in hate It begins with the tenderness of Romeo and Juliets love for each other and ends with Capulets rage that his daughter wont accept the arranged marriage to Paris The scene starts in a tender loving mood with Romeo and Juliet together on the morning after their wedding night Shakespeare shows the couples unity by having them share a rhyming couplet There is a lot of imagery relating to the lark and the nightingale To start off Juliet wishes it to be night and wants it to be the nightingale that sang but Romeo is more realistic and knows that it was in fact the lark signifying dawn his time to leave The script states how light is their friend day their enemy more light and light more dark and dark our woes There are many references like this to quite a few opposites such as youth and age hate and love and slow and fast The conversation switches and the atmosphere becomes more urgent
