The Nurse foils Lady Capulet by her relationship with Juliet. While both the Nurse and Lady Capulet are a mother to Juliet, their relationship with Juliet couldn't be more different. Within the text of Romeo and Juliet, the Nurse knows Juliet well and claims to be able to “tell her age unto [an] hour” (I.iii.12.) while Lady Capulet only “ knowest my daughter’s of a pretty age” (I.iii.10-11.). Even though Lady Capulet is Juliet’s biological mother, she doesn't know the age of her daughter, thinking that she is fourteen while she is still thirteen.
The Nurse believes that Juliet is not fully grown to be married as she said “She’s not fourteen” (18). Her age has proven that she’s not mature enough to become a wife and indeed that she won’t be able to act or talk like an adult. And because at such young age, 13, it’s obvious to the maid of house Capulet to act innocent, especially in her response during the conversation about her marriage. Juliet replied to her mom obediently “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move” (Shakespeare 21) about the man that she’s going to marry without hesitation. She don’t even considered whether that man would be a good selection or not.
220). The Nurse is more of a motherly figure to Juliet all of her life than Lady Capulet is. Lady Capulet was indifferent throughout the play because she never was a real mother to Juliet. If Lady Capulet is a better mother to Juliet and was concerned of her decisions she would support Juliet on things she does not want to do. The Nurse is the first person to tell Romeo and Juliet to marry, and she was a bad influence on Juliet at some points, but Lady Capulet was not even a part of Juliet’s life to try to help her
Love is the number one reason for teen suicides. Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare shows reasons why this statement is true. The tragedy is set in Verona, where the descendants of feuding families fall in love. The love between Romeo and Juliet’s leads them to their deaths. Throughout the play Shakespeare presents through different characters that a person should not prioritize love over life.
If Romeo and Juliet would kill themselves if they could not be together and on thing in the way of that is the feud then the feud is just as bad as Romeo and Juliet themselves. The first thing you hear in the play is the chorus talking about how this feud led to Romeo and Juliet's death. " From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life " . Though I listed my beliefs of Romeo and Juliet's death people for some reason blame other characters or
She was forced to, and her dad also hit her. This evidence shows us how Juliet was put in so much stress to marry someone she didn’t love.In the fight scene where Romeo’s friend died he didn’t want to fight Tybalt because they were family. Romeo and Juliet were too stressed to make the right decision. Your counterclaim paragraph goes here: On the other hand, they may argue that Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet chose to hide their love from their families instead of reveal it.The only reason that they didn’t tell their families is because they were in a blood feud. They are both and they are married to the enemies of their families.
In “Everyday Use,” two sister Dee and Maggie have different views on how they should preserve and honor their heritage. The story is told from the point of view of their mother, Ms. Johnson, and it is from her that we learn about the difference in the sister’s characters. Dee, who changes her name to Wangero, is outspoken and is the educated sister. Maggie is shy and appears to be ashamed of the burns on her skin. “[Maggie] thinks her sister has held life always in the palm of one hand, that ‘no’ is a word the world would never learn to say to her” (Walker 6).
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Other people speculate that the couple’s deaths were caused by other characters in the play like Friar Lawrence, the prince, or Tybalt. When analyzing the play, information sprouted up revealing who or whom are responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. It was their families, but more importantly the feud that they had between each other that led to the demise of Romeo and Juliet. Here are some of the many reasons why it was their families’ feud that is responsible for Romeo and Juliet 's curtains to be drawn. First of all, in (The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Act 3, 427 - 428), one of the members of the Capulet party, Tybalt fights Mercutio, a member of the Montague family, which leads to Mercutio’s death.
It obviously took a toll on Romeo’s mother the pain of losing her son was too much to bear and it resulted in her death. Romeo and Juliet’s suicides were very selfish they did not stop to think about how much it would affect their families. However, in the end the two families ended their feud and built statues in Romeo and Juliet’s honor. This teaches us that despite a disagreement people will come together to help someone that is having a hard
Reason one to support that is the first of many bad choices he makes is threatening suicide because his first love interest rosaline isn 't interested in him so he decided that if he couldn 't be with rosaline he would be better off dead. Next is that he married Juliet at first sight, marriage is a life changing decision that should not be made within the first couple hours of knowing someone (he proposed somewhere around two hours after meeting Juliet). Lastly when he gets to the Capulets tomb to find a ‘dead’ juilet he kills himself even though she was actullay sleeping and any clearheaded person would have known that.Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death’s pale flag is not advancèd there.”(shakespeare act 5 scene 3 line 100). If he had been thinking romeo would have known that color in the cheeks means that a person is alive and not dead. But since he was so caught up in his thoughts and not reality he makes the irrational of killing himself and so does
They were unwilling to follow the orders even after the ultimatum. They continued to fight, even if this is a majority of Tybalt’s fault. Lord Capulet should have kept an eye on him and never have let him leave the house. If this would’ve happened a large series of conflicts could’ve been avoided along with many deaths. The lack of cooperation between the government and its highest citizens reflects another lack of cooperation between Romeo and Juliet with their parents.
In William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, the two lovers, Romeo and Juliet, killed themselves for love in this tragic love story. Though both of their deaths were tragic, Juliet’s death was believed to have been caused by something else. The underlying cause of their deaths was the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. Had this feud between the Capulets and Montagues not existed, Romeo and Juliet could had lived in peace and harmony. The feud between the Capulets and Montagues had been happening as long as anyone could remember.
It is predetermined destiny, not free choice that manipulates the lives of these two lovers. In Romeo and Juliet, the idea that the main characters have no control over their destiny is proven through the long existing feud between the families, Romeo and Juliet’s chance meeting and Mercutio’s and Tybalt’s deaths. The long existing feud between the Capulets and Montagues is one of the factors that Romeo and Juliet have no control over, but which influences their fate. Romeo and Juliet
