What do you think are the key purposes of your scene? In other words, why is this scene important?

->I see, this particular scene as a climax, and therefore this scene is very important. As this is the last scene of the play “Romeo and Juliet” there were some results happened, and some conflicts resolved from what has been built up until now . Here, I mean result as in the death of Romeo and Juliet, one of the reasons of their death, can be the feud relationship between their houses. Conflict resolved would be the Capulets and Montague seeing their children dead , and having a conversation about their death was all because of them. Now, their feud must be over.

What are your reactions to this scene?


->I feel sorry for the parents of both houses who just found out the relationship between Romeo and Juliet and their death.
Whenever I read this part of scene, it makes me think that Romeo and Juliet had a very special fortune or fate . In this sense, special fortune (fate) is not that good.Because they were mostly about misunderstanding, that resulted them in death. I also feel sorry for Friar Lawrence, because he was actually most responsible for Juliet's fake death plan, but since they all dies, he might feel like, it is all because of him.
