First another brawl breaks out between the servants of the feuding noble families of Capulet and Montague Benvolio a Montague tries to stop the fighting but is himself embroiled when the rash Capulet Tybalt arrives on the scene After citizens outraged by the constant violence beat back the warring factions Prince Escalus the ruler of Verona attempts to prevent any further conflicts between the families by threatning death for anyone who disturbs the peace in the future Once more on pain of death all men depart I i 149 Second at the party as Romeo watches Juliet entranced a young Capulet Tybalt recognizes him and is enraged that a Montague would sneak into a Capulet feast He prepares to attack but Capulet holds him back Am I the master here or you Go to I v 79 Third Benvolio and Mercutio encounter Tybalt who still enraged that Romeo attended Capulets feast has challenged Romeo to a duel Romeo now Tybalts kinsman by marriage begs the Capulet to hold off the duel until he understands why Romeo does not want to fight Angry with this plea for peace Mercutio says that he will fight Tybalt himself The two begin to duel Romeo tries to stop them by leaping between the two Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeos arm and Mercutio dies Romeo in a rage kills Tybalt The audience is sucked into the play during these times of action It is the poetry of the play more than the plot which transports the reader into the rich world of love Sometimes blank verses blossom into rhymed lines giving additional beauty to the words Sometimes Romeo and Juliet talk in sonnets to declare their love Imagery is another aspect which lifts the play to a higher level of intellectual pleasure When Juliet appears on the balcony Romeo full of love and passion for her bursts into poetic exuberance But soft what light through
