Romeo and Juliet - Analysis of Act 2 Scenes V and VI

English Literature



8m 23s

The Nurse tells Juliet about Romeo’s arrangements for the marriage and Friar Lawrence marries them. In this tutorial we consider how does Shakespeare add humour to scene v? Why does Friar Lawrence agree to marry Romeo and Juliet and what is the Friar’s role in the evolving tragedy? As per usual we provide a scene summary and there is analysis of key quotations and Shakespeare’s use of comedy.
