Paris offers to marry Juliet and her dad finally chooses himself that she will and sets a date. Juliet is in love with Romeo and does not agree to marry Paris. She is furious with her father, but her father is furious that she is in love with a Montague. Juliet shouts, “Now, by Saint Peter’s Church and Peter too, / He shall not make me there a joyful bride.” (3.5.116-117). In this quote, Juliet had just figured out that her father had planned her to marry Paris without her consent and she is not happy about it.
Juliet said that she would not do it, making her parents furious. After they left, Juliet asked the Nurse about how to solve this dilemma, making the Nurse decide that it would be better if she married Paris, saying that he is better than Romeo, and that Romeo is doomed anyways. Juliet finally said that she would marry him, and that she would announce it at Friar
She is able to deceive the Nurse from suspecting that she fell in love with Romeo. Furthermore, Juliet struggles with another problem when her parents decide that she was to marry the Count Paris when she was already married to Romeo. When Juliet refuses to marry Paris, she states, “I will not even marry yet, and when I do I swear it shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, rather than Paris.” (III.v.126). She is not obedient to her parents like she used to. She also starts to speak out on her behalf.
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
When Juliet dies, the audience is left with wondering how Lord Capulet felt as he mourned for Juliet, especially after he disowned, disparaged, and deprecated his daughter, which just fueled the dramatic effect of Romeo’s and Juliet’s death. Shortly after, Shakespeare created another conflict in the family, except this time, it was with Juliet and her caretaker. Throughout the play, it has become apparent that Juliet loves Romeo greatly, which is why when the nurse says “I think it best you married with[Paris]./ O, he’s a lovely gentleman!/ Romeo’s a dishclout to him”, Juliet rushed to leave to the Friar. Before Romeo’s banishment, the nurse, who is the person that Juliet sees as her mother, sided with Juliet and even aided in their marriage; however, once Romeo was gone, her opinion of him changed, and to Juliet, it feels as if the nurse betrayed her. Again, Shakespeare's tearing their relationships apart made the play more dramatic in the end; however, with the nurse siding with Juliet’s parents in the marriage, it also seemed that
Juliet is also easily persuaded in her decisions.In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet portrays her tragic flaw as indecisive and unstable. first off, Juliet constantly changes her mind about many events that occur in her life. In the beginning of the play, Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage and simply boys in general. While Romeo all of a sudden brings up the idea of marrying Juliet, she was hesitant about the idea but then exclaimed “Thy purpose marriage send word tomorrow” (2.1.144). Juliet was very fickle about the big picture of getting married so fast, since at the start she didn’t even think of it until her mom brought up the idea.
In Document D, Juliet tells her mother, “... He shall not make me there a joyful bride...”. This demonstrates how Juliet feels about marrying Paris, but she could have just avoided this by actually telling the truth about her being married with Romeo. With all the evidence provided, it shows that Juliet was also to blame due to her not thinking about better decisions about handling her little problems that can be dealt with
Lady Capulet ignores her daughter’s desperate pleas to say who she actually wanted to marry. After Juliet learns that she will be forced to marry Paris, she exclaims, “Delay this marriage for a month, a week. Or, if you do not, make the bridal bed in that dim monument where Tybalt lies.” (Act 3.Scene 5.page 9) Juliet would rather die than to be married to Paris. Lady Capulet was ignorant in responding with, “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word. Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.” (Act 4.Scene 5.
Juliet, Lady and Lord Capulet’s only daughter needs to get married based on the parents deadline. Juliet being younger than fourteen years old was unexceriend in the real world and not getting what she deserves. Paris shows up to Capulet asking for Juliet’s hand in marriage, yet Capulet believes that they think it should be Juliet’s own decision. Capulet throws a feast with the beautiful ladies that live in Verona to show Paris he really does not love Juliet. Meanwhile on the streets Romeo Montague was depressed over Rosaline, because she wants to stay a virgin and not have children.
Explore the relationships/love presented in A1S1: In act one scene one, which is the opening of the play, Shakespeare firstly presented Lysander and Hermia as forbidden lovers. Hermia was just told that if she disobeys her father’s orders to marry Demetrius she can get killed and Hermia answers Lysander’s question: “Belike for want of rain, which I could well Beteem them from the tempest of my eyes.” the metaphor “rain” suggests her tears are like rain, she is crying so hard that her tears flowed like rain; this means that she is very melancholy that she couldn’t marry the love of her life, Lysander. Additionally it might also be shocking and weird for the audience back in the Elizabethan era, because they were living in a Patriarchal society, and that if you don’t obey your father you can die; because Hermia isn’t like the other women characters
