    How does Shakespeare make the audience sympathetic towards the character of Juliet, in Act Three, Scene Five, of ‘Romeo and Juliet’?

    Hi


    In a moment reminiscent of the balcony scene, once outside, Romeo bids farewell to Juliet as she stands at her window. Here, the lovers experience visions that blatantly foreshadow the end of the play. This is to be the last moment they spend alive in each other’s company.
    Act 3 scene 5 is the turning point in Romeo and Juliet: it is the difference between life and death, between light and night or light and darkness.
    The audience become sympathetic because they can anticipate the two characters` fate : unfortunately, a tragic one.
