“...Nurse, come back again….Thou know’st my daughter’s of a pretty age. (DBQ Project: Who’s to Blame, Doc. B). This quote explains how Lady Capulet does not know how to communicate with Juliet without the Nurse. Possibly, if Juliet and her mother had a stronger relationship, Juliet would be able to talk to Lady
She was Juliet’s only true family that actually cared for her since she was born. The nurse cared more about the bond and friendship between her and Juliet more than being honest (127). An example of this is shown the day after their marriage when everything started to go downhill. Romeo was banished and the nurse already wanted Juliet to marry someone else. She always made things seem bigger than they actually were (157-163).
The nurse is the best character in Romeo and Juliet. She cares the most about Romeo and Juliet. The nurse is the only character that unselfishly cares about Juliet. Romeo cares about her for her physical appearance, her mom doesn’t really know her very well, her dad isn’t a huge part of her life either, and without the nurse, Juliet would be pretty much alone in the world. She also cares about Juliet’s love of Romeo, however, which makes her care about him.
Also, the nurse is one of the only people Juliet can trust, they have a mother to daughter relationship, this relationship was built on the fact that the Nurse was there for all Juliet's moments and since lady capulet missed those moments she doesn’t have that bond with her daughter. Does Lady Capulet believe Juliet thinks of her as her true mother? Sometimes, that is why when she and Juliet are talking she calls back the Nurse because she doesn’t know much about her daughter. Juliet's bonds with maternal figures vary in each relationship but the Nurse has the strongest bond with Juliet, Lady Capulet and Juliet barely have a
The Nurse helped out Juliet when her Parents could not. “As I told you my young lady bade me inquire you out; what she bade me say, I will keep to myself”(Act II.II.148-149). The Nurse has offered to keep the secret of the marriage between the two young ones and she will not tell anyone about it. After the Nursze comes back from visting Romeo she finds ways to not tell Juliet the good news instead she starts talking about other things, the Nurse also knows how delighted juliet will be once when she finds out about the wedding “Your love says, like an honest gentleman, and a courteous, and a kind,...where is your mother?”(Act II.II.55-57). The day of Mercutio and Tybalt 's death she did not think Romeo would do such a thing, and now her thoughts about Romeo have changed instead she thinks Romeo would end up hurting her young lady.
The Nurse believes that Juliet is not fully grown to be married as she said “She’s not fourteen” (18). Her age has proven that she’s not mature enough to become a wife and indeed that she won’t be able to act or talk like an adult. And because at such young age, 13, it’s obvious to the maid of house Capulet to act innocent, especially in her response during the conversation about her marriage. Juliet replied to her mom obediently “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move” (Shakespeare 21) about the man that she’s going to marry without hesitation. She don’t even considered whether that man would be a good selection or not.
“His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy”(Nurse). The Nurse helps her see Romeo even through she knew that the families hate each other. The Nurse helped Juliet see Romeo even through it was wrong so therefore the Nurse is also to be
The Nurse is to Blame for Juliet's Predicament in Romeo and Juliet Everyone is faced with a difficult situation sometime in their life where the two different choices will result in totally different outcomes. A situation where once a decision is made they can’t go back. In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are from feuding families. They meet, fall in love, and get married with help from Juliet’s nurse and Friar Laurence.
Throughout the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, the Nurse and Friar Laurence played similar roles, both acting as mentors to the young couple. The hatred and tension between the Montagues and Capulets resulted in Romeo and Juliet’s marriage being kept a secret. They had no other choice then to confide their love for one another to the Nurse and Friar Laurence. Romeo and Juliet had warring parents who were not extremely involved in their everyday lives, therefore, the Nurse and Friar Laurence acted as parental figures toward them, guiding them through complicated situations to the best of their ability. These two characters wanted the best for the newlywed couple; however, both contributed to the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet, making some of their guidance useful and some of it useless.
Romeo and Juliet is a story of hasty decisions. The young couple must quickly decide to get married, how to act after Romeo is exiled, and whether or not to take their own lives. Many of these decisions are made under the guidance of the children’s mentors, Friar Laurence and the Nurse. Throughout this tragedy, Friar Laurence and the Nurse are the only adults that Romeo and Juliet seem to feel that they can trust and are in turn some of the main people that influence the outcome of the play. The Nurse and Friar Laurence play very similar roles, both in the play and the lives of the children, but the ways in which they advise and influence the children include more differences.
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
Juliet 's apparent death reveals the reactions and true emotions that her parents, The nurse and Paris felt towards her. Act 4 scene 5 starts with a humorous and eager tone but suddenly switches to a more sorrowful and sad tone as soon as the nurse discovers Juliet’s pale dead body. They were shocked and upset because it meant to be juliet 's wedding night. Their attitude and reaction shows us the importance of Juliet in their lives. Their relationships with Juliet in the past have an impact on the way they reacted.
Lastly, Shakespeare uses Romeo and Juliet to show true love. Nurse shows parental love to Juliet throughout the play. Despite being a servant to the Capulet household, she has a role equivalent to that of Juliet’s mothers and regards Juliet as her own. Even with the fact that Nurse is not the birth mother of Juliet, she still treats Juliet like a daughter. Nurse cares about Juliet and wants her to be happy and find success.”
