Worksheet Overview

Identify and Analyse Key Quotes in 'Romeo and Juliet'

In the exam, you will need to be able to select quotations from an extract and explain what these show about a character or theme.

You will also need to refer to different parts of the text, using quotations to support your ideas.

You should try to build a bank of quotations for each character and theme, and learn these so that you can use them readily in your exam response.



Top tip for the exam: When you are referring to the text as a whole, you will be awarded marks for paraphrasing or making reference to part of the text as well as using direct quotations.

In this activity you will practise identifying:

- who is speaking in particular quotations

- what quotations suggest about a character

- what theme or idea is explored in a quotation.


You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples. These quotations are for reference only.
