Her family put pressure on Juliet to marry by threatening to disown her, like when Capulet said "...get thee to church a'Thursday, Or never after look me in the face." (p.133) which must have shocked Juliet. I feel angry with her family over this because they do not listen to what Juliet wants and only think about what they want, more power and wealth. I think her actions at the end of the play were fitting with Juliet's attitude. She dies saying "Thy drugs are quick.
The Puritan society was led by a church that promoted isolation from any other group of people with different beliefs. The church was against dancing, singing and chanting as related to devil-worship. It was a time of anxiety and skepticism. After the girls in the village were caught dancing in the woods and one of them falls sick, rumors circulated about witchcraft going on in the woods, and that the sick girl has been bewitched. Once the girls talk to each other, they become more and more frightened as being accused as witches, so Abigail, the main character and the principle accuser, starts accusing others of practicing witchcraft to save her friends.

On St. Valentine’s Day, she alludes to this by singing a song about a maid whose lover also did not marry her as he promised (Shakespeare 4.5.24-64).

Callie Quinn is the main character in the book “Where the Stars Still Shine.” In the beginning of the book Callie is very insecure, lonely, and sad. Living with her mom traveling from place to place hiding from the police causes Callie to feel insecure and scared. Trish Doller reveals the insecurity and loneliness of Callie Quinn by Callie’s actions of not wanting to go to school and running away. She runs away a lot to try to think about her future. “I wish you wouldn’t run off to that laundromat in the middle of the night, Callie.”(6) She doesn’t have any friends and she only has her mom who smokes, gets drunk, and is a poor role model for Callie which causes Callie to be sad and to have a poor life.
I find this “reverse ancestor worship” troubling and conceivably damaging. Maxine’s mother sternly lectures that the little girl must not discuss the past of her aunt with others, but now she must wrestle with trying to comprehend what lead to the woman’s death. Unfortunately for Maxine, she suddenly became a part of the punishment and had no way around this when she was young. Why would Brave Orchid tell this story to her young daughter at such an innocent age? An unnerving, fogged story like this does not essentially help an innocent child guide herself through a moral decision.
Who was I going to ask about that? And who but my mother could’ve understood the magnitude of driving me to junior cheerleader tryouts?”(13). Her father, T-Ray, never liked to talk about Lily’s mother, and didn’t even like to hear her name. T-Ray was also cruel to Lily, never showing her affection and neglecting her while also giving her harsh punishments. Once, while lying in bed, Lily “thought about dying and going to be with my mother in paradise”(3), where her mother would kiss her and forgive her.

Essentially, Juliet’s mother is saying that Juliet is being stupid because she has expressed her sadness – something that is in fact healthy for everyone to do. Juliet has just lost her cousin and the love of her life has been banished from her city. Also, to make matters more difficult, she is an adolescent, and therefore feels emotions even more strongly. For all these reasons, it is extremely insensitive for Lady Capulet to tell Juliet that those who grieve lack intelligence. Furthermore, Lady Capulet abandons Juliet in the time where she needs her mother the most – when she is being threatened by Lord Capulet to marry Paris.
