    I ve included the next line: "Shalt with him hence": You, miserable boy, who did accompany (hang out with) Mercutio here Will soon join him [in death].

    Juliet, like Romeo , makes the transition from an innocent adolescent to responsible adult during the course of the play. In Juliet's case, however, there is a heightened sense that she has been forced to mature too quickly. The emphasis throughout the play on Juliet's youth, despite her growing maturity, establishes her as a tragic heroine.

    Hey there fellow "Rock N Roll family" watching friend :-D Well I read Romeo and Juliet a while back (and forgot the minor details of it), but I ll see if I can answer your question just from the context that you ve given me. (And I take it that you had a typo with the word "forfeit") Okay..here is my analysis.. The following quote s main message is threatening and caustic. On top of this, it is from a highly ranked official, which makes it even more potent and all so powerful. Prince Escalus is comparing the "streets" to his people (the Capulets..or the Montagues..not sure whose side he is on..you probably know this), and further elaborates into taking action by revenge ("shall pay") by abandoning the notion of passivity ("forfeit of the peace"), in lieu of possible violence and hatred. Also, the way Prince Escalus makes such a statement is rather declarative and authoritarian in nature ("If you ever..your lives shall pay"), and leaves little choice to the other party. This strongly re-empasizes the strong underlying animosity that both families have amongst each another. Well hope that helps. Feel free to use none, any, or all of that and incorporate it into your paper, THAT IS if you thought it was helpful lol..Good luck :-D

    All right, I ll help you with your homework. Well, after digging around for my copy and scanning over the scene, the two most apparent literary devices utilized is personification and foreshadowing. Act 4, scene 5 is rife with many instances where Death is treated as a living being, namely equating him as Juliet s husband. "Death lies on her like an untimely frost" "Death, that hath ta en her hence to make me wail, ties up my tongue and will not let me speak" "Flower as she was, deflowered by him" "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded. I will die, And leave him all. Life, living, all is Death’s." Shakespeare s use of foreshadowing should be evident in this scene. Juliet has taken a sleeping potion and now appears dead for all to see. Of course, as everyone knows, the play ends with her actual death. So there you go! Wasn t so hard, was it? ^_^
