Summary

Desdemona spots Romeo attempting to scale Constance's balcony; she mistakes him for Juliet and addresses him. Romeo falls immediately in love with Desdemona and informs her that he is in fact a man though dressed as Juliet—she replies he had best not journey to Cyprus where transvestites are not welcomed.

Analysis

This brief scene—the shortest in the play, quoted below in its entirety—arranges the plot to allow all of the major players in Act 3 to converge in Act 3, Scene 9. It continues to echo the by-now familiar humor of a cross-dressing Romeo being mistaken for the prepubescent Juliet.
