Which lines in this excerpt from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet foreshadow the tragic fate of Romeo and Juliet? (FAN&MEDAL) So smile the heavens upon this holy act, Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare; These violent delights have violent ends Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.

    @alyssagoodm Do you have a copy of the play to read Act 2 scene 6? The answer's all there.

    FRIAR LAURENCE: So smile the heavens upon this holy act, That after hours with sorrow chide us not! ROMEO: Amen, amen! but come what sorrow can, It cannot countervail the exchange of joy That one short minute gives me in her sight: Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare; It is enough I may but call her mine. FRIAR LAURENCE: These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume: the sweetest honey Is loathsome in his own deliciousness And in the taste confounds the appetite: Therefore love moderately; long love doth so; Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.

    I understand, I have read the options earlier. hints: 1. foreshadow : be a warning or indication of (a future event). 2. "Which line\(\color{red}{s}\) in this excerpt from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet foreshadow ..." So make all choices that qualify.

    If you need help understanding the meaning and context of the lines, read a modern "translation" of the dialog here: http://nfs.sparknotes.com/romeojuliet/page_132.html From there on, you can make your choice(s) that suit the requirements.
