CHORUSTwo households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
(Friar Laurence, Act 2 Scene 2) These violent delights have violent ends.
This quote highlights the heart of the theme in the play: the "star-crossed" lovers.
After their initial meeting, the lyrical and imaginitive quality of Romeo and Juliet's love reaches sublime heights.
Juliet speaks to herself here while waiting for Romeo, her imagination the stuff of "heaven" and "stars".
Juliet learns that Romeo has killed Tybalt and vents her anger in good/evil terms.
