Romeo's Mood

RANDJ-YXKZTA

The presence of Romeo's friends as they walk to the party juxtaposes Romeo's mood.

How does Romeo's mood contrast that of the other characters' in this scene?

A

Romeo is a hopeless romantic, motivated by his urge to find his true love. His friends bawdy humor indicates that they are only motivated by lust.

B

Romeo is still depressed over Rosaline's unrequited love. Mercutio, Benvolio, and the other partygoers are upbeat and excited about the night's festivities.

C

Romeo's talk with Benvolio in the previous scene has given him a brighter outlook on love. His friends however, have seen the pain caused by Romeo's failed relationship and have vowed to swear off love.

D

Romeo is fearful of attending the party because of the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. His friends are the opposite, ready to strike if provoked.

E

There isn't a difference in their moods. They are all excited about the night's festivities.
