Hi Ms. I was just wondering if you could answer a question for me. What is meant by a one page fact sheet? Is it just facts in point form? Or is it a description on the persons topic? If it is possible, please answer me as soon as possible.
I was just making sure. I was going to ask you questions at school but you were not there.
Geneva, it should be a one page fact sheet on your topic. It can be in point form. Just make it easy to read and eye catching.
Does the page have to be intact,Ms? Not cut up or it does not matter?
It should be in tact, but there should be many more facts other than what is on the one page. The one page is a summary.
Thank you Ms. That is exactly what I was going to do. Now I know I am on the right tract.
For everyone else- feel free to email me your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Romeo is a better match than Paris for Juliet. For example, Juliet once stated “My only love sprung from my only hate.” The meaning of this quote is that Juliet truly loves Romeo. Juliet knows what is best for her and believes that Romeo is her one love. Romeo professed his love for Juliet when he killed himself, when he thought that Juliet was actually deceased. He was willing to take his own life for the girl he loved. Paris did not do such a thing. Romeo was constantly risking his life to see Juliet. If Romeo and Juliet had not died they would have lived a happy life together.
Juliet's nurse was a bad influence on her. For example, the nurse stated "Must climb a bird's nest soon when it is dark./ I am the drudge and toil in your delight,/ But you shall bear the burden soon at night./ Go. I'll to dinner" (2.6.79-82). By helping Juliet, the nurse was setting an inappropriate example for her. She was allowing Juliet to make these grave decisions without thinking of her safety. Juliet trusted the nurse's opinion, and was deeply influenced by her, but the nurse was teaching Juliet to make foolish decisions. If the nurse had told Juliet's parents about what had been going on, they may have been able to stop Juliet's death. The nurse was supposed to be taking care of Juliet, but instead she watched her destroy her life.
Friar Lawrence was good for Romeo and Juliet because he wanted to make them happy. When Juliet went to the Friar ready to kill herself because of her impending marriage to Paris, the Friar states "Hold daughter, I do spy a kind of hope,/ Which craves as desperate an execution/ As that is desperate which we would prevent./ If, rather than to marry County Paris,/ thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself,/ Then is it likely thou wilt undertake/ A thing like death to chide away this shame,/ That cop'st with death himself to 'scape from it;/ And if thou darest, I'll give thee remedy" (4.1.69-77). This quote signifies that the Friar saw how distraught Juliet was and he offered her the potion as an alternative to have a happier life. The Friar wanted Juliet to be happy, and he tried his best to do so. Romeo and Juliet most likely would have ended up killing themselves anyways, but the Friar did what he could to prolong their lives. Their deaths weren't the Friar's fault, he was just trying his best to help them live happily together. Overall, Friar Lawrence was good for Romeo and Juliet.
Juliet’s parents are good parents. For example Capulet said to Paris “My child is yet a stranger in the world;She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summers wither in their pride’’ (1.3.2). This quote shows that Juliet dad is protective and wants to make sure that Paris is the right choice for Juliet. He sees his little girl still too young to be thrown in the world and wants to keep her safe in his home for as long as possible. Juliet parents want what best for her and do not know why she would refuse to do as they say and do not know that Juliet and the nurse are lying to them. If Juliet did not keep her secrets from her parents earlier on they might have understood the citation.
i thought the two groups who debated on this topic did a good job and brought up good points for both sides.
Friar Lawrence is a bad influence on Romeo and Juliet. For example, Friar Lawrence states, "In one respect I'll thy assistant be." (2.3.90). This quote means that Friar agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet in which there was no parental consent. Friar knew they would not be allowed to get married is their parents knew about it, but he did it anyways. Friar did not only agree to marry Romeo and Juliet, but he also encouraged Juliet to fake her death because she did not want to marry Paris. Friar is a bad influence on Romeo and Juliet because he agreed to marry them, and allowed Juliet to fake her death which shows selfishness.
Romeo and Juliet’s love was brought together by fate. For example Romeo states, “I fear, too early: for my mind misgives /Some consequence yet hanging in the stars/Shall bitterly begin his fearful date /With this night's revels and expire the term /Of a despised life closed in my breast /By some vile forfeit of untimely death. /But He, that hath the steerage of my course, /Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen.” (1.4.106-113). As Romeo describes in the quote he feels as if his decision is already made for him. He refers to a man steering his course, something that drew him into the Capulet party where he met Juliet. It could not have been coincidence that of all others at that party they found each other. Both of their courses were already set for them, they may have changed paths during the way but they all lead to the same ending. In the end the love between Romeo and Juliet was decided truly by their fate.
Juliet's parents in the play Romeo and Juliet were bad parents. For example, Capulet stated, "Hang thee, young baggage! disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday, Or never after look me in the face: Speak not, reply not, do not answer me; My fingers itch"(3.5.160). This quote is demonstrating how Juliet's father is extremely rude. He calls his only daughter horrible names. He prefers if she did not talk to him, which is ironic. It is ironic because Juliet not talking to him put her in that position. Then he implies that he wants to physically attack her. At that moment in the play, Lady Capulet did not even try to stop Capulet from emotional scarring Juliets life. Lady Capulet did try to calm Capulet at the beginning of the argument but at the end of the argument, when the anger had subsided, she agreed with Capulets thoughts. She decided to not listen to her daughter's thoughts and to not pick love. She thought Juliet's life would be better if she forced Juliet to marry a man she did not love and that was rich. Juliet's parents, Capulet and Lady Capulet, were bad parents.
The nurse was a bad influence on Juliet. For example, the nurse states, “I think it best you married the County. O, he’s a lovely gentleman!” (3.5.230-231). This quote shows that the nurse, after helping Romeo and Juliet get married hastily and unwisely, told Juliet to marry Paris instead. Numerous bad decisions made by Juliet were advised by the nurse. She avoided sharing crucial pieces of information that Juliet desperately wanted to know, such as if Romeo had arranged a time to perform the marriage. Also, the nurse went against her employers, the Capulets, and kept secrets from them. The role of the nanny is to protect and raise the child as the parents would have, and yet the nurse failed both Juliet and her parents by having poor judgment.
Romeo and Juliet's love was decided by fate because they were meant to be together. For example, in the story, the prologue states, "A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life". This quote means that they were destined to be with each other. Coming from opposing families who despised each other, it had to be fate that led them to meet and fall in love. While they should have hated each other, they instantly formed an inseparable bond. This shows that Romeo and Juliet's love is inevitable. Their love was so strong that one could not live without the other and this demonstrates that they were brought together by fate.
Romeo is more responsible for the misfortunes in the play. For example, Juliet states " How camest thou hither, tell me, and wherefore? The orchard walls are high and hard to climb, and the place death, considering who thou art, if any of my kinsmen find thee here." (2.2.64). This quote states that Romeo sought out Juliet after the party even when he knew she was a Capulet and he was a Montague and he could die if he was seen in her orchard. Their getting together led to them quickly making the decision to get married. When married Romeo constantly sneaked to see Juliet. Romeos banishment for killing Tybalt made Juliet take the poison caused then to both die. If Romeo had not sought out Juliet and married her many unfortunate events would not have happened.
Juliet’s parents were bad and harsh to Juliet. For example, Lord Capulet said “Hang thee, young baggage! disobedient wretch! / I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday, / Or never after look me in the face: / Speak not, reply not, do not answer me”(3.5.160-164). This quote reveals how they forced Juliet to marry Paris without her acceptance. The Capulets did not consider taking care of Juliet. They did not care about her feelings or emotions. The Capulets have never checked on Juliet to see how she was doing. Forcing Juliet into marrying Paris is what caused her to fake her death. Juliet had no one to talk to except her nurse. The Capulets treated Juliet in a bad manner which caused her to have mixed emotions resulting in faking her to death.
Romeo and Juliet's love came to be through fate. For example Anais Nin once said “You don't find love, it finds you. It's got a little bit to do with destiny, fate and what's written in the stars.”
This quote states that everyone has a destiny in life and true love will always find a path of reaching a person. Most often fate brings true love to those who least expect it. In William Shakespeare's /Romeo and Juliet/ Romeo and Juliet's love was brought to them by fate. When Romeo attends the Capulet's party, it was destiny that he met Juliet and was in the right place at the right time. The fact that the Capulet's and Montague's were sworn enemies, for Romeo and Juliet to fall in love in so little time was completely unheard of. Romeo and Juliet had met for a reason. It was destiny for them to fall in love to try and end the feud between their family's. If Romeo and Juliet had a choice, they would not have chosen to fall in love with their enemy because they knew what the consequences were. Their love was controlled by something greater than free-will. Their love was so strong that they could not live without one another whether it was their choice or not. Their fate kept them together even as they died for each other.
Sorry I do not know why it skipped a line after the quote.
Juliet's parents are bad because they do not pay attention to her. Juliet's parents hire a nurse to take care of Juliet rather than doing it themselves. Juliet's parents also try to marry her to a man she does not love. Juliet's parents never once ask Juliet about Romeo. Juliet's parents think that because they give Juliet everything she needs they do not have to love her. Juliet's parents are too busy caring about themselves rather than Juliet therefore they are not good parents.
Romeo and Juliet’s free will brought their love together. For example, William Shakespeare states; “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” This quote shows that even the author of /Romeo and Juliet/ believed that it is “in ourselves” to make one’s own decisions. Life is not determined by a greater power but in the everyday choices that one makes. Also, in/Romeo and Juliet/, it was Romeo’s decision to go to the Capulet’s ball that let to their meeting and not fate. Romeo and Juliet’s love was brought together by their own free will.
Juliet's parents were not good parents. For example, Lord Capulet said “Hang thee, young baggage! disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o' Thursday, Or never after look me in the face: Speak not, reply not, do not answer me; My fingers itch"(3.5.160). This quote shows how Juliet's parents forced her to marry Paris no matter what Juliet thought of it. Juliet's parents were bad parents because instead of taking care of her and listening to her about her feelings they hired a nurse instead to do all of that stuff. Juliet's parents forcing her to marry Paris led to her death because she did not want to marry Paris so she faked her death causing Romeo to kill himself then causing Juliet to kill herself when she see's that Romeo is dead. Capulet and Lady Capulet were bad parents to Juliet.
Friar Lawrence was a good influence on Romeo and Juliet because all he wanted was for them to be happy. For example, when Romeo and Juliet asked Friar Lawrence to wed them he stated, "Come, come with me, and we will make short work;/ For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone/ Till holy church incorporate two in one./" Friar Lawrence agreed to marriage for them. Even though Juliet was being forced to marrying Paris, Friar Lawrence knew that marrying Romeo was the better alternative because he made her happy. This action was a very risky decision, but he did it to make both Romeo and Juliet happier than ever. Friar Lawrence made clever decisions which makes him a good influence on Romeo and Juliet.
