To start, in Romeo and Juliet, Juliet presents a very interesting but normal character. The reason she may be seen as a normal character is because she wasn’t a rebellious one until later in the play of course. Juliet was just living her life listening to her mother and being tended to by the Nurse (Gill). If there was ever any disagreement, all she could do was plead and that was it, the thought of doing more was not to cross the minds of women during that time. Shakespeare made sure he showed a compliant and obedient person in Juliet; because that was the way a woman should act.
Love can cause an individual to make quick and irrational decisions followed by strong actions. The introduction to Juliet in the play shows an innocent and illogical girl. She has lived her life shielded from the outside world, since she is the daughter of the Capulets. Her thoughts are untouched due to the protection placed for her. Juliet’s views towards love and marriage are very limited.
Teenagers will rebel and change their values, beliefs and character in order to be with or accepted by those that they love. Juliet Capulet, the female protagonist from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a good example of a teenage character who develops into a mature adolescent throughout the story, using her experiences and emotions of love. In the beginning, Juliet starts off as an innocent, young girl who is very dependent on her parents. After Juliet meets Romeo, she slowly starts to change until she finally develops into an independent and mature adult-like character. Juliet first appears in Act I Scene 3 and is introduced to readers as polite, young and obedient.
Juliet not knowing what it would be like obediently says that she will try to love him. As in the play, (1.4.103-05), she says, “I'll look to like, if looking liking move. But no more deep will endart mine eye than your consent gives strength to make it fly.” Juliet hasn't experience real love yet, so she doesn't understand what love is. Juliet promises to consider Paris as her possibly husband due to her mother's desires. Juliet's attitude and personality changes right after she meets sweet, charming Romeo.
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?
The first appearance of Juliet in the play is in Act I Scene III. Here she is shown in the role of a typical daughter of the period: she is dutiful, quiet and eager to please her parents, having experienced nothing of the world. When her mother requires her, she replies 'Madam, I am here. What is your will?' This reserved address of her mother shows us two things: Juliet is very respectful of her mother and their relationship is not what we would now consider a typical mother/daughter relationship.
In the beginning of the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet when Juliet is first introduced, she is introduced as a young girl who is very faithful to her family, the Capulet family. In being faithful to her family, she is very compliant to the elders in her family. When the Capulet family's nurse calls Juliet, Juliet comes promptly. Then, she politely asks why she was called. Juliet also calls her mother, Lady Capulet, "madam" (1.3.5).
