Act 2 Scene 6

  • Romeo is with the Friar in his cell as they await Juliet’s arrival.
  • Friar Laurence is a very prophetic warning to Romeo tells him, “These violent delights have violent ends… moderately; long love doth so, too swift arrives as tardy as slow.
  • He is telling Romeo that love should be constant and even if you want it to last. He says intense and passionate relationships end badly.
  • The violent ends is a form of foreshadowing by the playwright.
  • Juliet arrives at the cell and Friar Laurence tells them to follow him and he will marry them.
  • We do not witness the marriage but know that it is about to take place.
