Subject:        The Capulet guest list
 
While you're at it, you might want to ask whether "the nuptial of Lucentio,"
at which Capulet claims to have "mask'd" (1.5.30-40), provides information of
any particular use to us.

Subject: 4.0242  Tybalt and the Nurse; Romeo's "niece" Rosaline
Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0242  Tybalt and the Nurse; Romeo's "niece" Rosaline
 
It has always been my assumption that the Rosaline on the guest list is Romeo's
Rosaline, and that the reason she will have nothing to do with him is
because she is a Capulet.
 
See Benvolio's lines in Act I.sc.ii li.87-92.
 
***Further inquiry: Some time ago I inquired about the compound that Friar
Laurence offers to Juliet to put her in that suspended state between life and
death, but got no serious responses.  In the hope there are more subscribers
listening in I'll ask again-- I'm interested in knowing if there is an actual
compound that would produce the effects Fr. Laurence describes to Juliet in Act
iv Sc.i Lines 95-108. Any herbalists or ethnobotanists out there?

          I believe Rosalind is Capulet's niece, not Romeo's.
 
          It's also a bit hard to take Ms Nurse at face value. She
          does have a way of amplifying things.
