    Dude, this is simple stuff. If you can't do it you have no hope in passing what I assume is a year five English Literature reading test.

    Short Essay – Choose one of the following essay prompts.

    Note: Your teacher will grade your responses for all parts of question 20, to ensure that you receive proper credit for your answers.


    20. I. In Act IV, Scene 1, Juliet cries, “O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris . . . And I will do it without fear or doubt.”

    Both Romeo and Juliet seek out Friar Lawrence for counsel during their difficulties. How does he affect their decisions, and eventually, the outcome of the play? Write an essay analyzing the cause-and-effect relationship between the two lovers and Friar Lawrence. You may want to address why Friar Lawrence marries the two in the first place, and the results of his advice throughout the story. The introduction of your essay should include an attention-getter and thesis statement. The body of your essay should explore how and why Friar Lawrence orchestrates many of the developments in the plot. Close your essay with an overall conclusion, including a restatement of the thesis.



    II. In the end, Paris and Romeo, both of whom loved Juliet, are dead. The two characters, however, are very different. Write an essay comparing and contrasting the two men. The introduction of your essay should include an attention-getter and thesis statement. The body of your essay should provide examples of similarities and differences regarding their attitudes toward love, traditions, and fidelity, as well as their actions. Close your essay with an overall conclusion, including a restatement of the thesis.

    Says the one who spells the word stupid like this- "stuped," and doesn't know any grammar. XD People like this truly make me laugh. Only you are the idiotic one on this page. If you don't understand what I'm trying to say because my grammar usage is too much for you to handle, then let me put it this way: "You are stuped." ;P

    Also, it's not "Please boy don't blame your sex on your stupidity." It's like this- "Please, boy, don't blame your stupidity on your gender (or sex). It makes you look stupid." EVERYTHING was wrong with that comment. Maybe you should just keep to yourself, because frankly, you aren't very smart honey. Or maybe you should go back to third grade.
