Romeo and Juliet Act two Comprehension Questions

1. Romeo has fallen out of love with Rosaline, got over her quickly, and instead fell in love with
Juliet. Juliet feels the same for him, but the hatred between their families (Montagues and
Capulets) makes it difficult for them to meet and let their passion prosper.
Scene One
1. That he was never really in love with Rosaline, he never felt a wound.
Scene two
1. The sun
2. The moon
3. Change his name
4. A name means nothing; Romeo would still be himself if his name wasn’t Romeo, just as a rose
would still smell just as sweet if it was called something else.
5. He claimed that he flew over the wall with the wings of love. He isn’t afraid of Juliet’s kinsmen
because love has lent him bravery.
6. Love.
7. “Therefore pardon me, And do not impute this yielding to light love, Which the dark night hath
so discovered.” “Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say ‘ay,’ And I will take thy word. Yet if
thou swear’st Thou mayst prove false. At lovers’ perjuries, They say, Jove laughs. O gentle
Romeo, If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully.”
8. Because the moon is always changing, and she doesn’t want him to turn out to be that
inconsistent as well.
9. Juliet. I think it is stupid, because it is too soon to determine if they really love each other, or if it
is just their appearances that drew them to one another.
10. It is sad that they have to part.
Scene Three
1. Talking to himself about herbs.
2. Rosaline
3. To marry him and Juliet.
4. Because he was just crying so much over Rosaline a few days ago.
5. To get rid of the hatred between the two families.
Scene Four
1. That Tybalt challenged Romeo.
