    I'm currently studying Romeo and Juliet in English Literature and I find that in exams, I have no idea what to write about, like, I can find techniques that shakespeare uses such as Rhyming couplets, Iambic pentameter, extended metaphors etc, but I don't know what points to make and what kind of effects they give on the reader/audience. Can anybody give me tips such as what kind of effects rhyming couplets have in Romeo and Juliet? Thanks
