At this point, Juliet still hasn’t told her mother that she loves Romeo, leave alone that she actually married him already. Lady Capulet believes that Juliet cries because of the death of Tybalt. This shows the partial maturity of Juliet. A mature person would have confronted lady Capulet with their true feelings on the matter. When lady Capulet tells Juliet that Juliet is to marry Paris on Thursday, she tries to change it by saying that she can’t properly marry him, as Paris has not even courted her.
She is generally portrayed as Juliet's older confidant. She is frequently shown to have an ignorant and questionable way of handling situations which, unfortunately, results in her contribution to the tragedies in this play. “Then hie you hence to Friar Lawrence’s cell. There stays a husband to make you a wife.” (Shakespeare 2.5.61-62). When Juliet goes to the Nurse for advice, regarding Romeo, the Nurse encourages Juliet to marry Romeo, when she should’ve explained the risk in going through with the wedding and the consequences that would follow.
For the majority of the story, she just abided Lord Capulet 's rule. For example, when Lord Capulet tried to force Juliet to marry Paris, she didn’t do anything to try and change his mind, even though she could clearly see how much it was hurting Juliet. In fact, Juliet even turns to her mother and asks for her help to delay the wedding a month, or even a week, or she’ll need to prepare Juliet a grave next to Tybalt. Her mom simply replies by saying, “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word. Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee,” (5.3.114) and leaves the room.
Capulet has a arranged a young fine man, Paris to marry her daughter but Juliet refuses and wants to marry Romeo, the son of Montague, Capulet’s enemy. Romeo and Juliet’s marriages were important as they were the only child of their families. This may be the cause of the tension between juliet and her parents relationship. Juliet’ mother is not a caring mother. The nurse was the one who raised juliet hence, Juliet’s mother still treats Juliet like a child and did not get to spend more time with Juliet as much as the nurse did.
She fears just because she is the oldest, she will not be a success in life. This has to do with self confidence. Her confidence is completely missing. People in her life should not look at her and judge her by a rumor, but as a person. Sophie wants to break the spell in her life and from the witch.
Such as, parents not making an effort to be parents and pick and prod until learning what is wrong with Romeo. Another example is Juliet as shown throughout the piece does not have a relationship with family members, but the closest person who is trusted by Juliet (the nurse). Even though, the nurse is Juliet’s most trusted “family member” Juliet chooses to only disclose the information that would be fine to put out in the open. As shown Shakespeare chose to introduce many hidden themes throughout the
Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: 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 honour that I dream not of.” (1.3.63-66) Juliet states that she is not ready to be married or that she would even dream of being married so soon. Neither of them are in love
But they were not the ones to blame for their deaths. Lady Capulet, Juliet’s mother, is supposed to be the one she goes to for advice and someone she can talk to, but instead Juliet is alone and makes many impulsive decisions. Lady Capulet didn’t raise Juliet, the Nurse did, and so Juliet has no respect for her mother’s decisions, which pushed Juliet away from ever being able to trust her mother. Another reason that Lady Capulet should be held responsible for their deaths is because she tried to force Juliet to marry Paris, and Juliet lost all reason to trust her mother. Leading up to the death of the star-crossed lovers, Lady Capulets self-centered actions push Juliet away and cause her
Unfortunately, this marriage is driven by ulterior motives. The following paragraphs will demonstrate that Romeo and Juliet want to get married for very different reasons, as evidenced by their fantasies of escapism. First of all, Juliet supports the marriage because she does not want to marry Paris. This is demonstrated when Juliet says she does not want to marry Paris before she meets Romeo. In the beginning of the play Lady Capulet asks Juliet if she would like to
Similar to a parasite, Juliet, the daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, is a character who is very dependent and doesn’t formulate her own opinion. So, throughout the course of the story, Juliet develops her own thoughts and continuously becomes more independent according to the experiences she faces, consisting of disobeying her parents, falling deeply in love with Romeo and finally accomplishing her liberty. William Shakespeare has created Juliet by interpreting her as a character who has transferred from a dependent person to an independent person. For instance, while Juliet was asking the nurse about the fight between Romeo and Tybalt, Juliet says, “What storm is this that blows so contrary? / Is Romeo slaughtered and is Tybalt dead?”(3.2.70-71).
