This quotation shows that if Paris can make Juliet fall in love with him, Capulet will let him marry her earlier. After Tybalt’s death, Capulet agrees to let Paris marry Juliet because he thinks this will make her happier after such a tragic incident. Capulet makes an offer to Paris; “Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender / Of my child’s love. I think she will be ruled / In all respects by me; nay, more, I doubt it not. / Wife, go you to ere you go to bed; / Acquaint her here of my son Paris’s love (3.4.12-16).
If Juliet told Lord Capulet that he had married a Montague he would have been outraged. Juliet did not tell Lord Capulet about Romeo, but she did say that she could not marry and could not love. Lord Capulet got extremely mad at Juliet for not marrying Paris, she feared that he would be more mad than that if she told him about Romeo. Lord Capulet said to Juliet, “But, an you will not wed [Paris], I’ll pardon you. Graze where you will, you shall not house with me.” Paris was handpicked for Juliet.
I tell thee want: get to thee church o’ Thursday, or never after look me in the face. Speak not; reply not; do not answer me.” In this quote, Lord Capulet is expressing disdain for Juliet after she denied his request for her to marry Paris. He wasn’t thinking about his daughter’s well-being nor was he a responsible and caring parent to Juliet. Lady Capulet and the Nurse weren’t being understanding or supporting either, which caused her to go to Friar Lawrence. Lord Capulet wanted Juliet to marry Paris so the Capulet’s status would increase since now they would be part of
In act 3 scene 5 Lord Capulet tells Juliet that she has to marry Paris or else she will be disowned and he is not very nice about it either; while he is telling Juliet what will happen if she doesn’t Marry Paris he says, “hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, For, by my soul, I'll ne'er acknowledge thee”. This hurts Juliet very much. Lord Capulet was forcing Juliet to marry Paris so soon she didn’t even have time to think of anything else she could do. This is putting Juliet in a stressful situation because she is already married to Romeo, but now her father will disown her if she doesn't marry Paris. She then make a rash decision because she doesn't know what to
At the start of the play, we get a look into Capulet early to show how he controls Juliet. He states, “My child is yet a stranger in this world. She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summers wither in their pride Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride” (Shakespeare Act 1 Scene 2). At this point, Capulet essentially chooses exactly what age Juliet should get married and who she will marry.
... get thee to church a Thursday or never after look me in the face" (Line 180, page 1068). As a parent, Capulet refused to consider Juliet's feelings and even went as far as to threaten her, putting Juliet in an overwhelming situation that made her feel helpless and desperate. When Juliet herself states that "if all else fail, myself have power to die" (Line 272, page 1070), she uses these words to show how powerless she felt and how destroying herself was the only "power" she has. The fact that Capulet could just order Juliet to get married and expect her to follow his orders proves the lack of control Juliet herself has over her life. The overwhelming feelings Juliet has for Romeo and her distress in having to marry someone else caused Juliet to make rash decisions such as going to Friar Lawrence and going along with the plan that ended up killing both Romeo and herself.
Although this is true, Lady Capulet could have been perceived as just trying to be a motherly figure. Her unloving act towards Juliet may have been an attempt to make her a stronger, more independent person. By distancing herself in Juliet's childhood, Lady Capulet could have been trying to influence Juliet to grow up faster, or come into her responsibilities as a Capulet. Possibly, she could have just wanted Juliet to be happy and not alone any longer. However, Lady Capulet’s self-centered and distant ways were too prominent and obvious to be ignored by Juliet, which lead to Juliet not being able to trust her own mother.
Their ignorant decisions, including my own, caused their unfortunate deaths. I believed Romeo and Juliet’s love had the power to end the quarrel between the two houses. My quest to end the feud blinded my judgment and morality. On Monday night, Lord Capulet, unknowing of Juliet's marriage with Romeo, engaged her with the Count Paris. When Juliet tried to convince her father to cancel the wedding, Lord Capulet threatened to disown her.
In the play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, violence is a big key point. Quarrels between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s are led to many of the characters’ deaths. Romeo and Juliet were obviously in love with each other, but their feuding families shortly ended this love fantasy. The Prince embodies Shakespeare’s message and philosophy because he was never on the Capulet’s side or the Montague’s side; he always tried to make things as fair as possible. Outbreaks of fights between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s have happened many times in the city of Verona, Italy.
The reasons why Lord Capulet is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is because, Lord Capulet was making plans for Juliet to marry Paris but she was already married to Romeo, But Lord Capulet thinks he knows what’s best for his only daughter. “Soft! Take me with you, take me with you, Wife/ How? Will she none? Doth she not give us thanks?
