Persuasive Language.


Shakespeare's characters are always trying to talk each other into doing things - often with hilarious consequences. To get the job done they use persuasive language.

Write about What They Say.

Q. How do Romeo and Juliet persuade those around them that their love is true? Refer to Act 2 Scene 3 and Act 2 Scene 6.

For this question you need to go through the scenes and look for the bits where Romeo and Juliet are talking to the other characters.
