Where is a simile in Romeo and Juliet in act 4?
"shrieks like mandrakes torn out of the earth" (scene 3)
In Act IV of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo has been exiled to Mantua for killing Tybalt, but he and Juliet are still married. Her father (unaware) is determined to marry her to Paris. As wedding plans ensue, Juliet plots with Friar Laurence to fake her death. Romeo returns in Act V to find her apparently dead.
In act four the Capulets are preparing for a wedding. In act one they are preparing for a party. Romeo and Juliet and the nurse make preparations to sneak Romeo into Juliet's bedroom in act three. In act two they make preparations for their wedding. In Act 4 Juliet also makes preparations for her fake death and in act 5 Romeo makes preparations to kill himself. All in all, they do a lot of preparing.
Why is Friar Lawrence willing to become involved in solving the marriage problems Juliet encounters?
The Friar knows that Romeo & Juliet are already married when Paris comes to him in Act 4, Scene 1 of Romeo & Juliet. He tries to help Juliet so that she doesn't actually kill herself to keep from marrying Paris. - See more at: http://www.chacha.com/question/why-is-the-friar-willing-to-become-involved-in-solving-romeo-and-juliets-marriage-problems-in-act-4-scene-1#sthash.rxpVM9Fc.dpuf The Friar knows that Romeo and Juliet are already married when Paris comes to him in Act 4, Scene 1 of Romeo & Juliet.
