She forced Juliet into marrying Paris not knowing that Juliet is in love with and in fact married to Romeo. Lady Capulet is Juliet’s mother and they should have a strong personal understanding of each other. But instead of Lady Capulet raising Juliet, the Nurse did, and she established a stronger bond with Juliet than Lady Capulet had. The Montagues and Capulets have been fighting for many years and Romeo and Juliet, coming from two different families, love each other regardless of the feud. Lady Capulet encouraged the feud between the families and made Romeo and Juliet’s marriage even harder to maintain.
This was a brave action on behalf of Juliet because disobeying Sir Capulet, her father, was considered a sin. In Scene 2 of Act 4 Juliet says: ”Where I have learned me to repent the sin of disobedient opposition.” This brings me to another point because Juliet did not truly mean this; however, she knew exactly what to say in order to make her parents happy. All the lies she told were just another way showing her immense loyalty to Romeo. Her sincerity to Romeo surpasses even the faithfulness to her family. This constant battle to be with Romeo is turned into a main them or conflict in the story, society versus individual choices.
In the story there is constant conflict between love and hate which creates drama; for example the play opens with a fight between the Montagues and the Capulets. Shakespeares ‘Romeo and Juliet’ explores many different kinds of love. For example in loco parentis this means in place of the parents. The nurse is in loco parentis for Juliet she is more like a mother to Juliet than Lady Capulet. She always wants the best for Juliet that’s why she agrees to arrange the secret marriage of Romeo and Juliet because she wants to make Juliet happy.
The ultimate fate and destiny of Romeo and Juliet who would do anything to be together but the tragedy of death cannot be avoided because of their own actions,; young immature love and the barriers of a long standing family feud. Romeo and Juliet’s fate is caused by their poor decision making and immaturity. At the beginning of the play Romeo is madly in love with Rosaline, but when Romeo lays eyes on Juliet from afar he forgets Rosaline instantly and he falls in love with Juliet. Romeo’s love for Juliet is immediate and spontaneous, love at first sight. “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright.
v line 59), completely forgetting about Rosaline. This could be because Romeo finds Juliet so attractive; he is blinded by her apparent beauty. Though Romeo has never talked to Juliet, he is determined to seek her out and know if she loves him as well. Romeo refers to Juliet’s beauty on many occasions and swears his love for her mere hours after they meet. Romeo is blinded by love, risking the danger of being caught by the Capulet’s and killed outside of Juliet’s balcony.
Tybalt coveted to extrude Romeo out from the reception except Lord Capulet tolerated Romeo because of his umpteen lauds. During the courtship party Tybalt recognized Romeo, “by his voice, [and that he was] a Montague [... their] foe; A villain, that [was] hither come in spite [...] content thee, gentle coz, [leave] him alone. ‘A bears him like a portly gentleman [...] he shall be endured” (I.5.59-84). Romeo would never have been able to meet Juliet if Lord Capulet had let Tybalt eject him from their gathering. Lord Capulet essentially endorsed Juliet’s relationship with Romeo without even knowing it.
Samantha Afonso 11/17/12 B hour Juliet & Hermia Hermia from the play Midsummer Night’s Dream is very similar to Juliet Capulet from the play Romeo and Juliet, both written by William Shakespeare. The two young girls are alike in many ways. Both Hermia and Juliet are madly in love with Lysander and Romeo but, their fathers Egeus and Lord Capulet do not approve of their choices. Other characters in the plays love them, but they do not love them back. The girls have very bad punishments if they don’t obey their fathers.
‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married. ‘The reason that I have to love thee.’ The audience know that Romeo must love Tybalt because they are now related. The other characters did not know about the wedding and are confused by what Romeo is saying. The dramatic irony in this scene makes it such an intense scene to watch. It is also a significant scene because it leads to Mercutio fighting Tybalt and Mercutios death.
Character summary and analysis of Romeo The name Romeo has become nearly synonymous with “lover”, due to his experiences in Romeo and Juliet. The power of Romeo’s love, however, often obscures a clear vision of Romeo’s character, which is actually far more complex. In fact, Romeo’s relation to love isn’t that simple. At the beginning of the play, Romeo is in love with Rosaline, claiming her paragon of women, and is miserable at her indifference towards him. Romeo is a great reader of love poetry, and from the beginning we could see that his portrayal of love for Rosaline seemed that he was trying to act out what he had read about.
He uses conflict in so much detail that one would only have to look at the play; the length of the lines would stand out. Shakespeare shows Romeo’s emotions before and after meeting Juliet. Before Romeo meets Juliet he thinks he is in love, yet he is actually depressed. When Romeo’s friends try to raise his spirits by trying to get him to go to the Capulet party, he complains that he is, “Under loves heavy burden”. The metaphor of love being a “heavy burden” is ironic because love should not feel so negative.
