Introduction The following version of Romeo and Juliet is based on the text in the authoritative Oxford Edition of Shakespeare's works, edited by W. The text numbers the lines, including those with stage directions such as "Enter" and "Exit.
Cummings appear at the end of each scene. The character list includes descriptions and comments that did not appear in the original manuscript of the play.
Characters Romeo and Juliet : Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet are immature teenagers—in fact, Juliet is not yet fourteen—who fall deeply in love even though their families are bitter enemies. Impatient and rash, they seize the moment and marry in secret.
But further efforts to conceal their actions go awry and end tragically. In world literature they have become archetypal ill-fated lovers. Countless other literary and artistic works, including the Academy Award-winning film West Side Story , have been based on this Shakespeare drama. Romeo and Juliet are the main characters, or protagonists. Their antagonists include the opposing family clans, as well as these families' prejudices.
In addition, Romeo and Juliet's own immaturity works against them. Montague , Capulet : Heads of the feuding families. Lady Montague : Wife of Montague. Lady Capulet : Wife of Capulet. Paris : Young nobleman, kinsman of Escalus. The Capulets try to pressure Juliet into accepting a marriage proposal from Paris.
Nurse of Juliet : Elderly and unattractive woman who is Juliet's attendant, confidante, and messenger. She has been with Juliet since the girl was an infant, serving as her wet nurse and in many ways as her mother.
The nurse had a daughter, Susan, who was the same age as Juliet. After the child died, the nurse focused her attentions on Juliet. At Juliet's behest, she meets with Romeo to sound him out on his intentions toward Juliet. Her homely language and her preoccupation with the practical, everyday world contrast sharply with the elevated language of Romeo and Juliet and their preoccupation with the idealistic world of love. Old Man : Cousin to Capulet. Mercutio : Kinsman of the prince and friend of Romeo.
He recognizes the utter stupidity of the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues and understands that overpowering, passionate love—the kind of love that ignores reason and common sense—can lead to tragedy. Ever ready to fight the Montagues at the slightest provocation, he personifies the hatred generated by feuding families.
Francis of Assisi. Friar Laurence marries Romeo and Juliet, hoping the marriage will end the Montague-Capulet feud, and tries to help them overcome their problems with a scheme that, unfortunately, goes awry. Friar John, a minor character, is charged with carrying a letter to Romeo. Sampson , Gregory : Servants of Capulet. Peter : Assistant of Juliet's nurse.
Abraham : Servant of Montague. Apothecary : Poverty-stricken with "famine" in his cheeks, he illegally sells Romeo a deadly poison. Thus, he provides an interesting contrast to Romeo in that he breaks a law to stay alive whereas Romeo breaks a law the moral law against suicide to die. Rosaline speaks not lines in the play, but is referred to by Romeo, Benvolio, Mercutio, and Friar Laurence.
Oddly, actor David Garrick omitted her character from his production of Romeo and Juliet in the belief that Romeo's abandonment of her for Juliet was unrealistic. The prologue sets the scene, Verona, and tells of the "ancient grudge" between the Montague and Capulet families. Maskers : Masked guests at the Capulet party in the first act.

According to Brooke, the ancestors of the Capulets and Montagues were esteemed, well-to-do aristocrats who wished to be the center of attention.
Consequently, the Capulets were jealous of the Montagues, and vice versa. Traffick: business; concern; focus. A Public Place. Draw thy tool; here comes two of the house of the Montagues.
Gregory, remember thy swashing blow. Put up your swords; you know not what you do. Have at thee, coward! Enter several persons of both houses, who join the fray; then enter Citizens, with clubs and partisans.
Give me my long sword, ho! Why call you for a sword? Hold me not; let me go. What ho! Speak, nephew, were you by when it began? Right glad I am he was not at this fray. Was that my father that went hence so fast? What fray was here? Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all.
O loving hate! O heavy lightness! Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms! Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! This love feel I, that feel no love in this. Dost thou not laugh? In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman. Farewell: thou canst not teach me to forget. That position has better footing than the muddy ground nearest the street.

Сьюзан это позабавило. Стратмор был блестящими программистом-криптографом, но его диапазон был ограничен работой с алгоритмами и тонкости этой не столь уж изощренной и устаревшей технологии программирования часто от него ускользали. К тому же Сьюзан написала свой маячок на новом гибридном языке, именуемом LIMBO, поэтому не приходилось удивляться, что Стратмор с ним не справился. - Я возьму это на себя, - улыбнулась она, вставая. - Буду у своего терминала.
Чего же он ждет. Он засмеялся. Ведь пилот может радировать Стратмору. Усмехнувшись, Беккер еще раз посмотрелся в зеркало и поправил узел галстука.
- Он и есть Северная Дакота. Снова последовало молчание: Стратмор размышлял о том, что она сказала. - Следопыт? - Он, похоже, был озадачен.
Никто не проронил ни слова. Он снова посмотрел на Джаббу и закрыл. - Танкадо отдал кольцо с умыслом. Мне все равно, думал ли он, что тучный господин побежит к телефону-автомату и позвонит нам, или просто хотел избавиться от этого кольца. Я принял решение.
- Я, пожалуй, пойду. Меня ждет самолет. - Он еще раз оглядел комнату.
