I'm sure that someone either has or will point out that Rosline is also related
to Capulet.  The list of people invited to the party includes: "My fair niece
Rosaline..."as read for Peter by Romeo in Act I, Sc. II, line 72.  This would
have obviously meant that Rosaline was the daughter of either Capulets brother
or sister.  In other words, she plays for the Capulet team.  If we speculate
that Romeo might have linked up with Rosaline, the "ancient grudge" would have
still been an impediment.  It is interesting to note that, although everyone in
the play makes a big deal over the fact that Juliet is a Capulet, no one reacts
that way to Romeo's infatuation with Rosaline.  Why not?  Is she just too far
removed in the bloodline to matter?  Or is it that no one really takes Romeo's
infatuation seriously?  Conjecturing is such fun stuff.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0125 Re: *Romeo and Juliet*
 
It seems that idioms about itchy fingers do not exist on the western shores of
the Atlantic? In the isles to the east, there are still a variety of sayings of
the kind "I'm itching to get at him/her" as well as "I'm itching to have a go
at that crossword puzzle/game/whatever" and at least in my childhood Cornwall
I'm sure I quite often heard people say their fingers were itching to do
whatever it was they were eager to do. On the Rosaline topic, by a extension, I
have always wondered just what it was Juliet saw in Romeo, assuming he remains
masked the whole time as the interlude with Tybalt suggests. Can you really
fall madly in love with a voice?

Can somebody please give me a reason why Romeo and Juliet's marriage would not
have lasted? After all it was true love. I especially want an answer from you,
Cynical Bill!!!!
