Yet he struggles between talking to her or to stay hidden. But he decides to show himself because he wants to make sure that there will be no obstacles in their relationship. Juliet seizes the name idea as why he has to be Romeo. Romeo misunderstands the thesis of Juliet and immediately tells her that he is willing to abandon his baptised name. Subsequently, this works as a foreshadowing since Juliet’s point was for Romeo to not be a Montague anymore.
This leads to Juliet wanting to die rather than marry a person she does not love. Juliet is determined to stay true to Romeo. Her willingness to die shows that she is deeply in love with Romeo. Support Romeo, however, does not fit the general idea of a man in the play. Romeo is not similar to Tybalt, Mercutio, Benvolio, and every other male character in the play.
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.
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted. For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet.
However there are instances where she exhibits immaturity. One similarity between Romeo and Juliet is that she was also impulsive when it came to falling in love. Although she did question Romeo if his love was true, by the next moment she quotes,”I gave thee mine before thou didst request it: And yet I would it were to give again.” (3.1,L135) Interpreting Juliet’s quote, she talks as if she had already been willing to get married with him. However a few quotes back she was talking about whether she should trust Romeo. This shows her indecisive characteristic, which shows that she is untrustworthy.
I think that Capulet had every right to be angry as he would have wanted the best for Juliet. I sympathise greatly for Juliet. Parents should be caring and supportive, whereas Juliet’s parents are not, which makes me sympathise for Juliet. Lady Capulet does not understand Juliet’s feelings and does not care about her opinions as she did not spend much time with her. Juliet’s mother just wants to take advantage of Juliet’ marriage which is selfish.
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).
Romeo and Juliet do not show what true love is because they keep their feelings for each other a secret. In Act 2 Scene 2, Juliet says, “O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore 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 (lines 33-36).” By this Juliet is explaining how her only and first love is her family 's greatest enemy.
Although Lady Capulet is an adult, she is still a woman in Shakespearean time and is portrayed as powerless. When Juliet is begging her to not make her marry Paris, claiming to love Romeo and threatening suicide, she tells Capulet, her husband, that she does not want to marry Paris. When Capulet is belittling Juliet, calling her worthless and threatening to strike her in front of Lady Capulet, she does not intervene. This is not because Lady Capulet does not care, but because she cannot go against her husband’s wishes since she is a woman. Lady Capulet responds to Juliet’s grovelling with “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word./ Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.” (3.5.202-203) because she cannot show that she sympathizes with
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
However Junger, the director of ‘10 Thing I Hate About You’ has kept the basis of the film based on Shakespeare’s play. Both the play and the film show a patriarchal society where women must be mild and obedient to men to be attractive. Shakespeare uses violent imagery when Kate talks to demonstrate her “Shrewish” behavior, seen in the quote “paint your face and use you like a fool”. Highlighting that in the Elizabethan society women were not attractive unless they were mild and gentle. Jung similarly
