Such is the character of the book. And as it is now one of the most convenient sources for the study of this particular product, it is too bad that the text, which is virtually Arber's with the insertion of some additional matter, should not have been thoroughly revised. In some of the additions, for instance, an old spelling is retained after the present fashion, while in others it has suffered modernisation. Sometimes the syllabic -ed is indicated, sometimes not.
Act 1, scene 5 Summary: Act 1, scene 5 In the great hall of the Capulets, all is a-bustle. The servants work feverishly to make sure all runs smoothly, and set aside some food to make sure they have some enjoyment of the feast as well.
Capulet makes his rounds through groups of guests, joking with them and encouraging all to dance. From across the room, Romeo sees Juliet, and asks a servingman who she is.
The servingman does not know. Romeo is transfixed; Rosaline vanishes from his mind and he declares that he has never been in love until this moment. Realizing that there is a Montague present, Tybalt sends a servant to fetch his rapier.
Capulet overhears Tybalt and reprimands him, telling him that Romeo is well regarded in Verona, and that he will not have the youth harmed at his feast. Tybalt protests, but Capulet scolds him until he agrees to keep the peace. As Capulet moves on, Tybalt vows that he will not let this indignity pass.
Meanwhile, Romeo has approached Juliet and touched her hand. In a dialogue laced with religious metaphors that figure Juliet as a saint and Romeo as a pilgrim who wishes to erase his sin, he tries to convince her to kiss him, since it is only through her kiss that he might be absolved.
Juliet agrees to remain still as Romeo kisses her. Thus, in the terms of their conversation, she takes his sin from him.
Just as their second kiss ends, the Nurse arrives and tells Juliet that her mother wants to speak with her. The Nurse replies that Lady Capulet is her mother. As the crowd begins to disperse, Benvolio shows up and leads Romeo from the feast.
Juliet is just as struck with the mysterious man she has kissed as Romeo is with her. She comments to herself that if he is already married, she feels she will die 1.
Overcome with anguish that she loves a Montague, Juliet follows her nurse from the hall. Romeo sees Juliet and forgets Rosaline entirely; Juliet meets Romeo and falls just as deeply in love. The meeting of Romeo and Juliet dominates the scene, and, with extraordinary language that captures both the excitement and wonder that the two protagonists feel, Shakespeare proves equal to the expectations he has set up by delaying the meeting for an entire act.
The first conversation between Romeo and Juliet is an extended Christian metaphor. Using this metaphor, Romeo ingeniously manages to convince Juliet to let him kiss her.
But the metaphor holds many further functions. The religious overtones of the conversation clearly imply that their love can be described only through the vocabulary of religion, that pure association with God.
In this way, their love becomes associated with the purity and passion of the divine. But there is another side to this association of personal love and religion. In using religious language to describe their burgeoning feelings for each other, Romeo and Juliet tiptoe on the edge of blasphemy.
Romeo compares Juliet to an image of a saint that should be revered, a role that Juliet is willing to play.
Here it is also shown to have some conflict, at least theologically, with religion.THE ELIZABETHAN SONNET () By Prosser Hall Frye. The following text is from Literary Reviews and Criticisms, pp.
, published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York & London.. EVERYBODY knows that Shakespeare wrote sonnets; but it is not so generally understood how thoroughly the sonnet was a matter of fashion in Shakespeare's day. Some notion of its vogue in those times may be derived from.
The good news is that it’s very easy to write a sonnet. The bad news is that your sonnet will unlikley eever be as good as any of Shakespeares’! The reason for this is that every word of Shakespeare’s exactly fits the emotion it’s expressing.
This is the final 'procreation' sonnet, in which the youth is urged to have a child so that he may live (forever?) both in that child, and in the verse which the poet writes celebrating his beauty. Sonnet crossover LspCAD simulation.

AI & Robotics; On June 9, at Manchester University’s Lister Oration, British brain surgeon Geoffrey Jefferson states, “Not until a machine can write a sonnet or compose a concerto because of thoughts and emotions felt, and not by the chance fall of symbols, could we agree that machine equals brain – that is, not only write it but know.
