Shakespeare has Juliet to fight herself on taking the potion or not. She begins to show even more desperation as her argument continues. Juliet sits alone on her bed thinking thoroughly and shows some interest in taking the potion “ Romeo,Romeo,Romeo! Here's drink. I drink thee” She takes the sip of her potion and lays on her bed await of the deep sleep.
Capulet also states if Juliet did not marry Paris he will never care of her ever again. His mean words cornered Juliet to drink the potion to make her sleep for 42 hours. His violent actions and words helped the tragedies happen in the play. Capulet even threatens to hit Juliet. "My fingers itch”(III.V.170).
It is understandable because Juliet is expected to be royal to her husband, Romeo. So she would do anything to respect and stay with Romeo. Which is her choice. Nevertheless, Friar Laurence plans to tell Juliet about the potion in the first place. Also, Juliet is only thirteen, she is ignorant and stressed out at the time, she cannot make the best decisions for herself.
In Romeo and Juliet, a play written by William Shakespeare in 1595, has a common theme of Free Will vs. Fate throughout the play. We see it in Act I, III, and IV of the play. It doesn’t just happen between the two main characters of Romeo and Juliet; but also Paris, the man intended to marry Juliet, Lord and Lady Capulet, and Friar Lawrence. The first clear portrayal of this theme is in Act I Scene II, when Lord Capulet is talking to Paris of marrying Juliet. This is the first time we hear of Juliet losing her free will.
In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, there are many aspects of the play which are linked to the teenage brain and how it functions. The teenage brain does not work the same as it does in adults and therefore helps the plot of the play move along quickly. Many of the parts that function in the adolescent brain can be seen in almost every decision that Romeo and Juliet make. Many studies have been created to take a look at how the adolescent brain works. There are some key elements to the brain of adolescents that show why most teens make these impulsive and adventurous decisions.
Romeo and Juliet is a well-known play written by William Shakespeare. Even though it is famous for being a love story, Shakespeare demonstrates that rebellion is closely tied together either it through the characters: Juliet, Romeo and Tybalt. By defying their families, authority and society's expectations, they set in motion the events in this tragedy. Romeo’s rebellion against society's expectations and his own family, the Montagues, is because of his love. His love of Rosaline is his first demonstration of defiance.
Seeking to flee her father’s demands about marrying Paris, Juliet ran to Friar Lawrence in pursuit of a plan, or else threatening to take her own life. Once Friar Lawrence finally gave in to Juliet’s pleas, he comforted her by saying, “Let not the Nurse lie with thee in thy chamber. / Take thou this vial, being then in bed, / And this distilling liquor drink thou off” (4.1.92-94). This proposition made the entire Capulet family believe that Juliet was dead, but unfortunately it was not passed on to Romeo in the right means, which made him believe that Juliet was truly dead.
Juliet faces a challenge when she wants to know the name of the man whom she fell in love with and without Nurse discovering it. To find out the name of the individual, she misleads her Nurse, “In order to find out, she devises a cleverly indirect ploy, first inquiring from the Nurse about the identities of two other young men in whom she actually has no interest. Only after she has learned their names, and thus diverted the Nurse’s curiosity, does she ask about Romeo. ”(Garber,47). Juliet starts showing signs of independence by asking questions after falling in love with Romeo.
Societal expectations are a part of everyone’s life, male or female. From the day people are born, there are roles they are expected to assume-- wife, homemaker, father, provider, mother and many others. While these aren’t necessarily negative, the stigma of not fulfilling these roles can be unpleasant. While the roles we are supposed to choose aren’t always clearly defined, the judgement that comes from choosing to take certain actions in life, like settling down or becoming a mother is palpable. Throughout The House on Mango Street, Esperanza’s view of the world is largely shaped by the people around her, which are her neighbors, family, and friends.
Question 1 I have chosen to analyze a passage on page 109 from line 1-10. In this passage Romeo looks up at Juliet's window hoping to catch a glimpse of her. He compares Juliet to the sun and prays that it's not the maid that is the light "through yonder window breaks". Shakespeare uses a mix of both enjambment and caesura (line 3, line 6 & line 9) in this particular passage.
Many girls desire a female role model from a young age. The way these women are treated, and deal with this treatment can heavily impact the way young girls view themselves, and their future as well. Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street brings attention to issues of sexism and gender roles. This is done through a series of vignettes about the main character Esperanza navigating life by the example of her many role models. Each role model impacts Esperanza in a special way, Sally who is married at 13, Marin who is waiting to be rescued by a man, and Alicia who is balancing school and home responsibilities.
We all have autonomy when making choices, whether it be with deciding what to eat for lunch, or deciding to spend the rest of your life with that special someone. Through the setting, Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street and William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet both convey that although people’s personal choices are affected by the environment in which they are made, they still can defy their physical environment and pursue their own passions. The House on Mango Street shows how Esperanza’s choices are affected by her setting, Romeo and Juliet show how Juliet’s relationship choices are affected by her setting, but eventually Juliet and Esperanza still try to take control of their lives. In The House on Mango Street, Esperanza faces friends and family who limit her autonomy.
Esperanza lives in an era where men and women live very different lives due to gender inequality. Esperanza lives in a world where her eyes see male domination, and very feeble women. her eyes see that men can be embarrassed when seen weak, and women just do not belong well in this type of society. The House on Mango Street tells us the story about a young girl named Esperanza. Esperanza has two brothers, Carlos and Kiki, while also having one younger sister, Nenny.
When Juliet was confronted by her father and told she would marry paris she freaked out, and got really scared. After Juliet heard she would marry paris she went to Friar and asked for a sleeping potion. Once getting home she took it. “Should I kill myself? , no i should not.
