What are some examples of foreshadowing in Romeo and Juliet?
- 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. (1.4.104-113)
Romeo is saying he feels like he is going to die....
After everything happens the Friar is talking about how untimely his death was.
- I have night's cloak to hide me from their sight;
And but thou love me, let them find me here:
My life were better ended by their hate,
Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love.
- Friar Lawrence: "These violent delights have violent ends"
- Benvolio: "And if we meet we shall not scape a brawl/for now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring"
- Romeo: "This day's black fate on more days doth depend, this but begins the woe other's must end"
- Mercutio: "A plague on both your houses"

Allusions are when an indirect reference is made to another person,place, or thing. An allusion in Romeo and Juliet would be: In Act3, Scene 5 when Romeo says 'Let me be ta'en…, let me be put todeath; I am content, so thou wilt have it so. I'll say yon grey isnot the morning's eye, 'Tis but the pale reflex of Cynthia's brow;'The allusion is to Cynthia, which is another name given to theGreek goddess of the hunt and moon, Artemis. Romeo is pretendingthat the light is the moon instead of the sunrise.
Some examples of foil in romeo and Juliet would be. Act one, scene 3. The Nurse and Juliets mother are having a fight about how old Juliet is. The example is when she says, "B…ut, alas, it was once said in the ancient scriptures of Syria, the light upon the candle will tell the date."
http://www.shakespeare-navigators.com/romeo/Foreshadow.html gives full examples of this. here's a direct one... Prologue- tells us that there are lovers who will die becau…se of their love.
Juliet to nurse: " If he be married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed." She means if he is married she will die unmarried for she can love no other, but it foreshadow…s her death if she marries him.
When the Friar marries Romeo and Juliet, he recites a chant. It mentioned gunpowder and fire. If you apply fire to gunpowder, it is chaotic. It foreshadows a chaotic end for t…heir lives. Also, when Juliet sees Romeo going away after he has to leave because of banishment, Juliet gets the image in her mind of Romeo being in a graveyard, foreshadowing his death.
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. (1.4.104-113) Romeo is saying he feels like he is going to die....
When Juliet is talking about if Romeo were her pet bird, she would smother him with her love. This is foreshadowing the end of the play when they both kill themselves.
Juliet says to the Nurse, "If he be married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed."
"With this night's revels and expire the term of a despised life, closed in my breast,..." (Shakespeare line 109). This quote foreshadows the series of unfortunate events and… the death of Romeo at an early age. Its purpose is to keep the audience interested and make them infer about what will happen next
some examples of puns in romeo and Juliet include: Not I, believe me You have dancing shoes /With nimble soles . I have a soul of lead/So stakes me to the ground I cannot …move. (I,iv,4-6) "Give me a torch, I am not for this ambling. Being but heavy I will bear the light" (I,iv,11-12)
It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden". Juliet believes that maybe they are rushing into things to quickly and should take it slow.
obviously the chorus. also both romeo and Juliet keep saying ifthey cannot be together they will kill themselfs. Juliet says, "mygrave is like to be my wedding bed." Mercutio …says "a plague onboth your houses" the friar says "these violent delights haveviolent ends."
It explains Romeo and Juliet coming from feuding families and foreshadows them falling in love and their suicide
torment, selfishness, love, rivalry, jealousy, anger
You need to specify which act you are talking about.
