Scene 2. Lines 9-11). Here Capulet is telling Paris he does not think Juliet is ready to marry and he wants his daughter to be happy. Another time her character is naive is when she tells her mother she wishes not to be married, despite the fact she is supposed to be searching for a spouse.”Marry, that ‘marry’ is the very theme I came to talk of. Tell me daughter Juliet, how stands your disposition to be married?’ Juliet,’It is an honor that I not dream of.” (Act 1.
Juliet is the lover of Romeo, but is from the house of Capulet which is a that time in the middle of a feud with the house of Montague( Romeo’s Family) and in the play she is brung into adulthood quickly. She helps develop the theme of gender roles of females through all the events in which she must disobey her father who was going to disown her for not wanting to marry Paris because she is secretly in love with Romeo, “CAPULET:Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!I tell thee what: get thee to church o ' Thursday,Or never after look me in the face.Speak not; reply not; do not answer me.” (3.5.166-169) in this quote from Act III Lord Capulet is throwing a huge fit because Juliet does not want to marry Paris and he is treating Juliet like
Juliet is responsible the tragedy within the play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare. As a thirteen year-old, Juliet is overprotected by the Capulets which leads to her love with Romeo. However, her effort to not inform the Capulets about her love nor marriage due to the feud between the two families stimulated tremendous amounts of unnecessary conflicts. Neither Paris nor Lord Capulet know about the hidden marriage as they plan for the wedding on Thursday. In Excerpt Three, Paris states, “ Now , sir, her father counts it dangerous That she do give her sorrow so much sway, And in his wisdom hastes our marriage,” (4.1.9-10).
Romeo after the ball that night approaches her at her balcony window to see her once more. Juliet is spotted by Romeo expressing her thoughts of Romeo and how much she loved him but she can’t because they are enemies. “O Romeo, Romeo! Therefor art thou Romeo?/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” (2.2.33-36). Since Juliet and Romeo are sworn enemies it is forbidden to date Romeo but Juliet thinks otherwise.
In my opinion, Romeo and Juliet were infatuated with each other and were acting irrationally when they got married. Both Romeo and Juliet are teenagers and were not old enough to be “in love”. I feel this way because Juliet was about to marry someone who her parents were making her marry. She simply married Romeo because she had feelings for him and did not want to marry Paris. Romeo was lovesick for Rosaline and thinks that when he sees Juliet it is love at first sight.
(Shakespeare 2.2.50) From the quote, you can see that the decision of Romeo to go after Juliet after the dance helps them get closer to the tragic end. This is not the only careless decision from continuing to pursue each other. Romeo and Juliet start to make it a pattern of making poor decisions, like them waiting to be married. Juliet is speaking to Romeo about, “Thy purpose marriage” while Juliet is on her balcony and Romeo is below. (Shakespeare 2.2.144) The quote shown helps it to be seen that Romeo and Juliet going after each other is causing them to make not good decisions.
By holy Laurence to fall prostrate here, and beg your pardon: pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ener ruled by you’’(Shakespear IV.ii. 18-22) Juliet promised to focus on Paris and only Paris, but ended up meeting Romeo, falling in love with him, and betraying her father’s trust. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, the main characters did not behave appropriately for this time period. They did not follow the rules for marriage and went against their parents’ wishes when Romeo and Juliet secretly married.
Juliet's attitude toward love and marriage changes throughout Romeo and Juliet due to her falling in love with Romeo, marrying him in secret and committing suicide. Juliet’s attitude towards love changes when Juliet meets Romeo. By meeting Romeo Juliet falls in love with him and Romeo falls in love with Juliet that changes Juliet’s attitude towards love. Juliet’s attitude towards marriage changes when Juliet marries Romeo in secret. Juliet at first thought of marriage as an honor, but Juliet did not want to get married, Romeo changes that.
However, it is the impulsivity of Lord Capulet and his daughter Juliet throughout the play that creates troubling situations for these young adults, resulting in the tragedy of young people being forced to make adult decisions. During the play, Juliet’s temerity and affinity for impulsive decisions lead herself and those around her to difficult situations. For one, when she and Romeo discuss their love from her balcony, she says to him “I gave thee mine [vow] before thou didst request it/And yet I would were I to give again”(2.2.135), and in doing so promises herself to Romeo without thought as to what doing so could mean for her. Furthermore, in this statement she implies that she had been thinking about marriage with this guy, glossing over the fact they met the night before. Later, Juliet in an act of desperation declares that if Friar
For example, as the scene opens, Juliet is imagining her and Romeo having sexual intercourse: “Lovers can see to do their amorous rites by their own beauties” (III:ii, 11). This shows that Juliet is mature because she is starting to think about stuff adults do. Also, when the nurse calls on shame to Romeo, Juliet contradicts her by telling her to shut up: “Blister’d by thy tongue” (III:ii, 20). This shows that Juliet is mature and makes her own decisions because now she doesn’t say what the nurse tells her to say but what she feels and thinks. In addition, Juliet won’t speak ill of “him who killed her cousin” because she says that why should she if that is her husband: “Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?” (III:ii, 22).
Juliet tries question the need for her sudden marriage to Paris, and she is immediately abandoned by her family, including the Nurse for being disloyal. Some assertthat Romeo and Juliet are to blame for their own deaths since they were the ones who made the decision to end their own lives. They argue that the young lovers should not have been so hasteful while trying to solve the problems in their relationship. }[Nonetheless, the reasons for their haste should not be overlooked, specifically the pressures that come from not conforming to the basic rules of society. Consequently, because they are constantly forced to act a certain way, Romeo and Juliet make quick and rash decisions based purely on instinct.]
Determination, loyalty, and rebellion are the actions of Juliet’s love that drive the plot. Juliet is young but she is so mature in her love towards Romeo, she met Romeo at night then the next day she marries him, which is totally opposite of what her feelings were before. Her loyalty and determination to be with Romeo is stronger than many adults. Without Juliet’s determination, loyalty and rebellion, Romeo and Juliet’s love story might have been written and ended up way
