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.
These conflicting ideas presented to Juliet by her caretaker leads Juliet into her predicament. First the nurse acts as a courier, delivering messages between Romeo and Juliet. These actions portray the nurse as supporting Juliet’s relationship with Romeo. The nurse then tells Romeo that “There is a nobleman in town, one/ Paris, that would fain lay knife aboard; but she, good soul, had as/ lieve see a toad, a very toad, as see him” (38). When the nurse goes to tell Romeo this information, she informs him of this man, Paris, who is pining for Juliet’s love, but she also tells him that Juliet has no feelings for Paris, only for him, Romeo.
Anytime Juliet needed to tell Romeo something the Nurse had to do it. Juliet should have went herself to make sure Romeo was hearing what she wanted him to hear and to hear his response. However, this couple never thought of anyone else during their love and how they might hurt their family emotionally and physically. When Juliet was gonna take the death comma position she never thought about how much it would hurt her parents. She just thought of herself and how she would be with Romeo.
She wants to wait another day to see if their love is true instead of agreeing to love that may disappear before she can fully experience it. This proves Juliet is more patient and mature than Romeo as she takes a step back and reevaluates how fast everything is going for their relationship. In the balcony scene, Juliet reveals her doubts and
Romeo and Juliet, is a love story that was interfered by hate. The Capulets and Montagues were bitter enemies. However, the son and daughter from the patriarchies of both families did not hate each other, but instead fell in love. They decided to keep their love a secret because Juliet would be disowned if she didn’t marry a handpicked man from Lord Capulet. The rivalry and disgust between the two families was responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because it made them lie.
In the play Juliet was the daughter of Lord Capulet and Lady Capulet. Lady Capulet was never really there for Juliet like a mother should be. The Nurse took care of Juliet and raised her like her own after her own died as a baby. The Nurse was very caring and sentimental but funny at times." I am weary, give me leave awhile.
Juliet's nurse knows exactly what goes on ,and continues to deliver messages between the two. “Good Heart, and faith I will tell her as much/ Lord, Lord, she will be a joyful woman” (II.4.163-164). What the nurse means by that is she has a message from Romeo to give to Juliet ,and she knows Juliet will be excited to receive it. Juliet's nurse is agreeing with their young forsaken love, this is the nurse's first mistake. Keeping a secret from the enemy families is a lot of weight on her
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
Juliet explains to her father that she’ll never marry Paris, this is because she’s loyal to Romeo and staying married to Romeo is what her heart desires. Then after Juliet refuses, Lord Capulet becomes enraged that she would even think to talk back to him in the way that she did. He becomes so enraged that he said “Thursday next/ to go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church/ Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither/ Out, you green-sickness carrion! Out, you baggage/ You tallow face/” (3.5.158-162). After this threat, Juliet is forced to take action against her father, even if she would have to disobey him and possibly be disowned.
Romeo Juliet and some others die because of love. Romeo and Juliet Love each other so much they would die to be able to see each other. The story Romeo and Juliet show love is stronger than hate as they risk their lives just to see each other and eventually die together. Hate may have killed them, but hate is not enough to disrupt their love, they are still together, even when they are dead. Can love be too strong in this case?
