Through this Shakespeare is conveying that Juilet is so madly in love with Romeo even though his family, the Montegues, are Juilet’s family, the Capulets, greatest enemy. Juliet also explains to her nurse that her love for Romeo is so strong she does not mind that he killed her beloved cousin. Juliet explains, “Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?/ ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name/ when I thy three-hours wife, have mangled it?/ But wherefore, villian, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband”. (3.2.97-101) By “ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name/ when I thy three-hours wife, have mangled it?” Juliet is saying Ah, my poor husband, who will clear your name when I have been agreeing with my family and saying awful
The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is the tale of two rival families, the Montague and the Capulet. The son of the Montague family is Romeo and the daughter of the Capulet of Juliet. The two meet at a party hosted by the Capulet family and eventually fall in love. Romeo and Juliet agree to get married the following day, but the Capulet king is arranging for Juliet to get married to a kinsman named Paris. In order to prevent this, Friar Laurence gives Juliet a sleeping potion to make it seem like she had died.
Juliet portrayed concepts of feminism at the Capulet party, where she, when approached by Romeo, displays a welcoming to the man’s affection. Juliet is receptive to Romeo’s advances, and engages in flirtatious repartee that involves sexual innuendos, even allowing him to kiss her. “Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this, for saints have hands that pilgrims ' hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers ' kiss.” (Act 1, Scene 5) Juliet expresses to Romeo when he approaches her, telling him that his holding her hand shows polite devotion, not offense. Women in the Elizabethan times were not typically this brazen and coquettish, and this is an example of feminism because Juliet knows she is supposed to feign disinterest in Romeo’s intentions- but she does
Shakespeare situates this moment directly after Juliet’s wedding night , linking the idea of development from childhood to adulthood. The audience can infer that she feels apoplectic and imprisoned by her father as she says ‘Proud can I never be of what I hate’. The revelation of Juliet’s attitude toward her father would have shocked an Elizabethan audience whereas in modern times we find it normal to disagree with our parents. Shakespeare uses foreshadowing technique in the lines ‘or if you do not, make the bridal bed, in that dim monument where Tybalt dies’ which adds dramatic tension to the story by building anticipation about what might happen next. The audience can see Juliet developing in maturity as this is the first time in the play that she disobeys her parents and makes her own
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, both protagonist act impetuous, which alters their lives. They act without thinking and forget that there are consequences to their actions. Both Romeo and Juliet hide the fact that they were in love and married from their families. If Romeo and Juliet really love each other they would take their time to get to know each other. They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws.
Once her father comes in, Juliet attempts to also sever the bond, although he manages to do it all himself, threatening “for my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” if she does not end up marrying Paris. Lastly, and most importantly, Juliet turns away from her closest confidant and friend, the Nurse. Juliet calls her a “damned old lady” and ‘wicked fiend,” stating that “thou and (her) bosom henceforth shall be twain.” Although she says this to herself, in her mind, she is breaking the last of her ties to childhood, she realises she can’t rely on her Nurse anymore. This last step is the final difference, bringing her changing loyalties into light. Juliet clearly demonstrates that they are to her
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(126.96.36.199). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not

Elizabeth was the main character that the author represented its main idea through her. Elizabeth is independent and insubordinate standing against society’s social norms of marriage. Unlike Lydia, her youngest sister, Elizabeth fights the social norms by believing in herself and in her feelings of marriage and love. Mr. Collins proposal to Elizabeth was countered by this “You could not make me happy, and I am convinced that I am the last woman in the world who would make you so” (Austen 104). When Elizabeth rejected Mr. Collins she did not just refuse him as a husband, she as well refused to be financially secured in her society.
