Like "Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo?"
Why do authors use this method?
What are the benefits?

    Dear miss Pancakes,

    The double marks you see are not apostrophes, they are quotation marks.

    Quotation marks are used in literature and all other writing to indicate the difference between a charater speaking in the story, or the narrator of the story. This is so the reader can clearly understand who is speaking the wirter or the character.
