In fact, as the play progressed, we are met with a scene where Juliet has no other choice but to marry Paris, who the Capulets originally planned Juliet to marry in the first place. The nurse was giving her advice on how she should marry Paris instead of Romeo. Soon after Juliet heard the nurse’s advice, readers can now see the thirst for Romeo from Juliet: “ If all else fail, myself have the power to die” (3.5.243). This is a crucial turning point for Juliet as it shows that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo and is willing to kill herself if she never sees Romeo again. The emotions shown by Juliet, conveys how strong love is able to overtake the mind and
“Deny thy father and refuse thy name; / Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, / And I’ll no longer be a Capulet,” (II.v.2.34). Juliet has been shown as a meek and compliant character up until this point in the plot. Her willingness to leave behind everything she has known for Romeo’s love shows how passionately she cares for him, whether her feelings are irrational or otherwise. Juliet is so upset with the thought of marrying Paris, she runs to the friar for help. “Tell me not, friar, that thou hearest of this, / Unless thou tell me how I may prevent it.
They trust each other, they go to each other for comfort and advice, and the nurse and Juliet care about each other because they have a strong healthy relationship. Juliet and the nurse can tell each other some of their most important secrets. If one of them is upset or worried about something, they know that the other person will comfort them. The two of them also care and worry whether or not the other person is feeling ok. Even though Juliet kills herself the memory of Juliet and their relationship will always be stuck in the nurse’s heart.
Also, she inflicts the beating of Juliet when she brings Lord Capulet into the room so Juliet can explain why she does not want to marry Paris. While her daughter is being slapped she simply observes and does not even slightly intervene to protect her only child who is begging on her knees. The Nurse, however, demonstrates her true love for Juliet as she steps in and confronts Capulet. The Nurse says, “God in heaven bless her” while pleading, “You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so” (3.5 176, 177). Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child.
She supports and helps Juliet get married behind the Capulets back. Knowing she can lose her job and get exiled she helps Juliet anyway because she values her more. Lady Capulet shows parental love for Juliet in a traditional way. She wants Juliet married to bring status and honor to the family. “Marry, that ‘marry’ is the very theme I came to talk of.
“Maturity is not by age, but the acceptance of your responsibilities” (Unknown). In William Shakespeare 's, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo, who is a Montague and Juliet, who is a Capulet, met at a Capulet party. Romeo went to the party and met Juliet. They fell in love and got married the next day. Later that day, Romeo kills Juliet 's cousin, Tybalt.
The Nurse foils Lady Capulet by her relationship with Juliet. While both the Nurse and Lady Capulet are a mother to Juliet, their relationship with Juliet couldn't be more different. Within the text of Romeo and Juliet, the Nurse knows Juliet well and claims to be able to “tell her age unto [an] hour” (I.iii.12.) while Lady Capulet only “ knowest my daughter’s of a pretty age” (I.iii.10-11.). Even though Lady Capulet is Juliet’s biological mother, she doesn't know the age of her daughter, thinking that she is fourteen while she is still thirteen.
Instead of marrying Paris, a wealthy and handsome count, Juliet defies her father’s wishes. Shakespeare writes, “Thursday is near. Lay hand on heart; advise. / An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend. / An you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee”
Conflict in Romeo and Juliet between Parental Figures In Romeo and Juliet conflict erupts between Juliet and her parents when they want her to marry Paris. When Count Paris first introduces the idea of marriage to Mr. Capulet he is told that he thinks Juliet is too young for marriage but decides to let Juliet choose what she wanted to do with the idea present. Lady Capulet introduces the idea to Juliet and lets her decide, but William Shakespeare turns the idea into a controversial argument leading into conflict between Juliet and her parents. Later on, things worsen and the conflict erupts out proportion making the fate of two star crossed lovers take an unexpected turn. The conflict in this play affects the story as a whole making it end in a tragedy at the end all due to the feud between the Capulets and the Montague and the lack of trust the children have with their parents.
At the start of this tragic love story Juliet is a very youthful and innocent girl, who doesn’t seem to have given a lot of thought to marriage since she doesn’t seem to care for love. “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move” (1.3.98). Here Juliet promises her mother to see whether she likes Paris, but the way she says it suggests that she will probably not be able to tell whether she would want to marry him just by looking at him. This also shows Juliet’s disinterest in the matter. Later that same night Juliet stumbles across Romeo at the masked ball and immediately falls in love with him.
