Characteristics of Lady Capulet In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet’s mother is Lady Capulet. Throughout the whole story, Lady Capulet wants Juliet to marry Paris. No matter how much Juliet argues and begs her mother to not make her get married, Lady Capulet does not listen. Some people may think that Lady Capulet is a good mom who just wants what is best for her daughter. Although I do not believe that this is true and I will be discussing my reasons throughout this essay. My perspective of Lady Capulet is that she isn’t a good mom at all and that she is a very obedient person. Lady Capulet is not a good mom at all for many reasons. One reason is because, she never knows where her daughter is and she lets the nurse take care of Juliet 24/7 even when she could be the one to take care of her. In the play, Lady Capulet asks the Nurse, “Nurse, where’s my daughter? Call her forth to me.” (1.3.1). This quote proves that Lady Capulet does not keep track of her own daughter. While the nurse acts like the mom that Lady Capulet should be to Juliet, Lady Capulet is off doing other things. It is also clearly given to the readers that the nurse has been taking care of Juliet since her birth. In this case, it seems that Juliet has not had as much bonding with her Lady Capulet as much as she has with the nurse. Lady Capulet has always needed a person to help her even when it is something that she has been doing for years. Some people may argue that she doesn’t take care of her child as much
