In Romeo and Juliet there consists of several silent, or not so silent, characters that contribute to the overall play. Several of these characters are the nurse, Friar Lawrence, County Paris, and Lady Capulet. Lady Capulet is mentioned eleven times in the play and she is one of the more important characters. Furthermore she is the mother of the catalyst for the entire play. Lady Capulet is the birth mother of Juliet, though she doesn’t genuinely care about Juliet’s wants and mind.
Shakespeare begins Act 1, Scene 4 at the Great Hall in Capulet’s Mansion. Capulet welcomes the “gentlemen” (1.4.129) among his guests, as well as of the readers, to his celebration. His commanding of attention immediately demonstrates his high status in the play. Capulet’s repeated greeting to the men specifically establishes the time period of the play; the time when the role of the woman was to “walk about with” (1.4.130) men at parties. This passage is crucial in the play as a whole, including key features of the dramatic structure and exploring thematic issues of the play.
When people communicate poorly--or not at all--the lack of knowledge or understanding that results can cause unfortunate consequences and disastrous tragedies such as heartbreak--or even death. This is distinctly noticeable throughout the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet and the twenty-first century today. In Act III, Scene Five of the play, Lady Capulet finds Juliet weeping in her quarters. When she asks Juliet why she is crying, Juliet simply states: “Madam, I am not well.” Lady Capulet takes this as a sign that Juliet is weeping over her cousin’s death, even though Juliet neither affirms nor denies that she cries for Tybalt.
Why Capulet is a good father Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a sad tale of secret love and family honour where Romeo and Juliet fall in love only to discover that they are from feuding families and they must not tell anyone of their love. Lord Capulet is Juliet’s father. He is a wealthy family man that protects and cares for his wife and children. He is a good father because he is considerate and loving towards his family and tries to do what’s best. Although Capulet may be harsh at times, he does love Juliet and wants the best for her.
Men are evaluated by their character and actions. In order to make a sound judgement, one must observe many instances upon which to base a judgement. An assessment based on a single instance is rarely reliable, and does not reveal much about the true character of a man. Likewise, glancing at but a few instances, some readers come to the conclusion that, Mr. Capulet, from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, changes his opinions and views throughout the course of the play.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was a tragic play that started with a young couple falling madly in love, but quickly turned to the death of both of them. From early on in the play, it seemed as if the fate of Romeo and Juliet was already determined, as they were referred to as “star-crossed lovers”, and the tragic fate of these lovers was unraveled through the poor decisions of many characters throughout this play. Though many people can be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, Lord Capulet and Romeo are the most responsible for the tragic ending of this play. Lord Capulet was the most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. First of all, one trait that puts Lord Capulet at the blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet is that he was indecisive.
In dramatic literature, the characters are often responsible for the outcome. In Romeo and Juliet, guilt is drawn from every part of the play and affects the entire outcome of the play. Several characters are responsible for Romeo and Juliet's death. Those characters are the Capulets, Friar Lawrence, and Tybalt are all to blame for their deaths.
Decisions are a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration. After reading Romeo and Juliet I concluded that many of the decisions that are made come from a child making a decision that is to be made by an adult. Juliet and her father are an example of this because in the play Juliet had to make hard decisions for herself that normally her father would have made. This created a large conflict between the two of them. In the play Romeo and Juliet there is a conflict between Juliet and her father the reasons behind this conflict include Juliet being married to Romeo behind her fathers back, her father Lord Capulet trying to have Juliet marry Paris, and the secrets and the feud that cause Juliet to keep her relationship from her father.
It is evident that the Officer’s actions were unimportant to the plot and they did not further the dispute between the Capulets and the Montagues, unlike Tybalt’s actions which led directly to violence. Anger is a dangerous emotion that often creates difficult situations for all parties involved in the conflict. The tense feeling of anger can easily spiral out of control, frequently forming an inevitable snowball of rage, that becomes nearly impossible to reverse. Once a feeling of profound fury is reached, the emotion generally does not go away for a very long time. A strong hatred between two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, had a great deal of impact on the families for countless years.
In the play Romeo and Juliet a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths reunite their feuding families.

Romeo and Juliet died at the end of Act 5 of the play. The death of the two lovers had several reasons and people that lead up to this moment. The people that were the most responsible for the the deaths are three members of Capulet family. With the father, mother, and nurse to Juliet all having an influence by being unsupportive, uncaring, and uptight, they are to blame for Romeo and Juliet's deaths.
Capulet is most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he over pressured Juliet to marry Paris. Juliet was married to Romeo at this point in the story. When she refused to marry Paris her father Capulet became extremely angry and threatened to disown her if she did not go through with the wedding. Angrily he stated, “Get thee to church a Thursday / Or never after look me in the face”(III.V.161-162). With this statement, Capulet showed how he cared more about how the family continues that Juliet’s happiness.
Romeo and Juliet died for love, but there was someone else who “pushed” them to that fate of death. There are numerous characters that could be at fault and blamed for the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The one who is most to blame, however, is Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet had a lot to do with Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because he was forcing Juliet to marry someone she hardly knew let alone loved. He was working on moving the wedding sooner because of Tybalt’s death, but he also gave up on his daughter when everyone thought she was dead.
