Slide 6 - Slide

Read this extract from the famous balcony scene, in which Juliet is talking about her love for Romeo.

Shakespeare’s original version
‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy.

Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.

What’s Montague?
It is nor hand, nor foot,

Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part

Belonging to a man.
O, be some other name!

What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.
Modern English
Only your name is my enemy.You’d be yourself even if you weren’t a Montague.
What is a Montague?
It isn’t a hand, foot, arm, face, or any other body part.
Oh, change your name!
What does a name mean?
A rose would smell as sweet
even if we called it by some other name.
