Shakespeare revealed Juliet the way she was to help show the quick and emotional change that happens to her. She is immature because she has had no experience or knowledge of what love is, only what it appears to be. The first meeting Juliet had with Romeo automatically influenced Juliet’s view towards love and marriage that was brought to her attention only a few minutes earlier. When Juliet set her eyes on Romeo she felt like she was in love with someone she’s never met. The lovers spoke litt... ... middle of paper ... ...lly with the pressure of all the events.
From “the fatal loins” (Prologue.5) of Lord and Lady Capulet, protagonist Juliet is born in Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. Early on in the play Juliet is portrayed as a very dutiful daughter to her family. After her encounter with Romeo however, she begins a rapid transformation from a naive young girl into a woman. By the end of the play Juliet’s transformation evolves her from a dutiful daughter, into a faithful wife that is willing to desert her family in the name of love. The audience is first introduced to Juliet in the exposition of the play.
Like most love stories, the characters end up changing. Juliet changes a lot though the play, at the start she is a very obedient and 'a stranger to the world', but as time passes Juliet's language and actions change and she becomes more mature. She is pushed away from her family and is forced to lie to them to conceal her love. When Juliet is first mentioned it is when her father is talking to Paris about marriage prospects. Capulet is going on about how she is so young and does not have experience, "She hath not seen the change of fo... ... middle of paper ... ...o in Heaven.
Juliet is Independent, Courageous, and Heroic in Romeo and Juliet After reading William Shakespeares' Romeo and Juliet, you have a better understanding of the characters then when we are first introduced to them. Juliet Capulet, who is one of the main characters, is placed in a cruel and vicious adult world. She is under many pressures and demands of her family. Thus, during the play Juliet becomes an independent, courageous, and heroic young woman. Many times in the play Juliet shows many acts of being independent.
The Development of Juliet in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet One of the most interesting things about this character is the way Shakespeare shows her development from a young, rather childlike girl to a mature and independent woman who takes full control of her life. Romeo and Juliet is a love story and it is the power of love that propels this change in Juliet. The first time you see Juliet is when her mother, Lady Capulet, wants to talk to her. This is the first time you see the relationship between mother and daughter is different to a normal mother and daughter relationship today. “Nurse, where is my daughter?
Throughout the play of Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is known as the obedient, young, immature girl to the determined, mature, adult. Juliet's change in personality and attitude is connectable with people outside of the play. Juliet's love for Romeo is what causes her to change. If she had never met Romeo, I believe she would have still been alive and probably married to Paris. Shakespeare gave us an exclusive look of how love can change a person and drive them to a limit where they don’t care about anything but their love for that certain person.
She always follows the rules and she does exactly want her parents want. All Juliet wants in this story is to follow her mother's wishes. Her mother wants her to find true love while being fourteen at the time period of the Renaissance it was almost time for her to marry, but modernizing this her mother wants her to have her first boyfriend. Juliet thinks she's not ready, but ends up falling quickly once she realizes how kind and funny Romeo is. Being so young and wanting to listen to her mother she instantly falls for Romeo without knowing who he is, which ends up making it difficult for them in the future.
Juliet’s Characterisation in Romeo and Juliet This tragic love story of two star-crossed lovers unfolds when Juliet, one of the two main characters, falls in love with the son of her father’s great enemy, Romeo, the other main character. Juliet realises her parents will not be happy as they want her to marry another. Therefore she goes behind their backs to marry Romeo to show her parents she’s serious about him but the play ends in tragedy. Initially, Shakespeare presents Juliet as an innocent girl of not quite 14 years of age. Juliet is first heard of in Act 1 Scene 2 when we see her father –Lord Capulet- and the county Paris speaking of her.
The parents in Verona at the time when the play was written wanted their children to be married young, work in the house and raise a child. Juliet herself has a very bad relationship with her parents, they treat her with no respect, she is forced into doing things she does not want to do and has no one to look up to. I think that if Juliet's parents were more trusting and understanding towards Juliet she may have felt differently about getting into a relationship with Romeo or maybe she could have told her parents about their marriage without any hard feelings. As the Capulets were too hard on Juliet this may have caused her to make her own actions and it was her own ideas that contributed to the tragedy. The Montagues are very close to Romeo, Lady Montague especially worries about Romeo, after the first fight in the play Lady Montague asks if Romeo was involved and wants to know where he is "O where is Romeo?
A Shakespearean audience would have seen Juliet as a normal teenager about to be married, however a modern audience would see Juliet as a sheltered teen, who doesn't have a good idea about men. This will also influence th... ... middle of paper ... ...ng positive said about love. Juliet has developed from a naïve, innocent and vulnerable child to a sure, strong and brave adult. Juliet lives a life in experience of love, hate and death in just two days, and this changes her from a girl to a woman. As I am the same age as the character, I know how it would feel for me to have that amount of peer pressure, and conflicting feelings.
