For the majority of the story, she just abided Lord Capulet 's rule. For example, when Lord Capulet tried to force Juliet to marry Paris, she didn’t do anything to try and change his mind, even though she could clearly see how much it was hurting Juliet. In fact, Juliet even turns to her mother and asks for her help to delay the wedding a month, or even a week, or she’ll need to prepare Juliet a grave next to Tybalt. Her mom simply replies by saying, “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word. Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee,” (5.3.114) and leaves the room.
The Capulets are deceitful, harsh, and inconsiderate for Juliet's feelings. They wanted to disown her when she told them that she didn't wanted to marry Paris. For example, from act 3 scene 2 when Lady Capulet says, "Talk not to me, for I'll shall not speak a word." If Lady Capulet would have listened to her, then maybe Juliet wouldn't have to try to plot to get out of the wedding. It was because of
At this point, Juliet still hasn’t told her mother that she loves Romeo, leave alone that she actually married him already. Lady Capulet believes that Juliet cries because of the death of Tybalt. This shows the partial maturity of Juliet. A mature person would have confronted lady Capulet with their true feelings on the matter. When lady Capulet tells Juliet that Juliet is to marry Paris on Thursday, she tries to change it by saying that she can’t properly marry him, as Paris has not even courted her.
Such as, parents not making an effort to be parents and pick and prod until learning what is wrong with Romeo. Another example is Juliet as shown throughout the piece does not have a relationship with family members, but the closest person who is trusted by Juliet (the nurse). Even though, the nurse is Juliet’s most trusted “family member” Juliet chooses to only disclose the information that would be fine to put out in the open. As shown Shakespeare chose to introduce many hidden themes throughout the
Throughout The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet disobey their parents multiple times. Two examples are when Juliet rejects marrying Paris and when Romeo and Juliet get married. When Juliet rejects marrying Paris, her parents get mad and tell her that she has to marry Paris anyways. “I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. These are news indeed (III.v.
When Juliet sees Paris, he is asking all these questions about loving him, Juliet never tells him she is married causing him to want to still marry her. "That may be, sir, when I may be a wife" (IV.1.19). Juliet will not tell Paris how she feels causing him to want to marry her, if she just told him the truth about her feelings and wasn’t arrogant about it, she would still be alive. During this all Friar Laurence is there listening to Juliet talk to Paris and he never jumps in to tell Paris that she is married. "The correlation between the behaviors of the friar and of other characters indicates that accepting Paris, defiance of conventional expectation is wholesale.
Marguerite went through a terrible time in her life so detrimental to her that she didn 't talk, Not a single word. As marguerite grew and got older she lived that way without any words, regardless of who tried to help her. Although Marguerite was remarkably intelligent and a notably nice girl she chooses to block the world out instead because it was easier. Maya Angelou better known as Marguerite in the short story “Mrs.Flowers” has been through a traumatic assault in her young age. Marguerite has shut many people out, until she has a discussion with Mrs.Flowers who shows her that shutting people out is not how you handle situations you do not want or know how to deal with.
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
But they were not the ones to blame for their deaths. Lady Capulet, Juliet’s mother, is supposed to be the one she goes to for advice and someone she can talk to, but instead Juliet is alone and makes many impulsive decisions. Lady Capulet didn’t raise Juliet, the Nurse did, and so Juliet has no respect for her mother’s decisions, which pushed Juliet away from ever being able to trust her mother. Another reason that Lady Capulet should be held responsible for their deaths is because she tried to force Juliet to marry Paris, and Juliet lost all reason to trust her mother. Leading up to the death of the star-crossed lovers, Lady Capulets self-centered actions push Juliet away and cause her
Although Lady Capulet is an adult, she is still a woman in Shakespearean time and is portrayed as powerless. When Juliet is begging her to not make her marry Paris, claiming to love Romeo and threatening suicide, she tells Capulet, her husband, that she does not want to marry Paris. When Capulet is belittling Juliet, calling her worthless and threatening to strike her in front of Lady Capulet, she does not intervene. This is not because Lady Capulet does not care, but because she cannot go against her husband’s wishes since she is a woman. Lady Capulet responds to Juliet’s grovelling with “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word./ Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.” (3.5.202-203) because she cannot show that she sympathizes with
Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88). They treat her wrong because in this novella they only calls her Curley’s wife they never called her by her name so no one will ever know what it was.
