The Nurse brought the news to Juliet “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished” (Romeo and Juliet 2. 2. 69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death.

(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage.

Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet in 1952 based on real lovers who lived in Verona Italy and died for one another in 1303. During this time the Capulet’s and Montague’s lived in Verona. Shakespeare found the story in Arthur Brooke’s poem called the, Tragical Histoyre of Romeus and Juliet. The play was about two star crossed lovers, whose parents had the same social power and wealth but they hated each other. The reason Paris, Romeo and Juliet are so young in the play is because during Shakespeare’s time, people died at a young age, hence they married younger.
After being tricked by Don John into thinking that Hero is unfaithful to Claudio, by witnessing Hero (actually Margaret) having an affair with Borachio, Don Pedro and Claudio are determined to embarrass Hero in front of the whole crowd at the wedding. Upset and angered that his friend has been betrayed, Don Pedro exclaims, “What should I speak? I stand dishonour’d, that have gone about to link my dear friend to a common stale” (Shakespeare 48-49). At this point in the play, the reader has already seen multiple examples of how Don Pedro’s acts of kindness towards his close friend have gone horribly wrong. Don Pedro’s loyalty towards his friend Claudio has portrayed him as an insensitive character regarding his comments about Hero.
