Romeo stands in the shadows beneath Juliet’s bedroom window. Juliet appears on the balcony and thinking she’s alone, reveals in a soliloquy her love for Romeo. She despairs over the feud between the two families and the problems the feud presents. Romeo listens and when Juliet calls on him to “doff” his name, he steps from the darkness saying, “call me but love.”
After the two exchange expressions of devotion, the Nurse calls Juliet from the balcony. Juliet leaves, but returns momentarily. They agree to marry. Juliet promises to send a messenger the next day so that Romeo can tell her what wedding arrangements he has made. The scene concludes as day breaks and Romeo leaves to seek the advice of Friar Laurence.
quotes ”But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun”
”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”
