Juliet is then submitted to foul insults and threats from him, Capulet even shouts at the nurse, as she tried to intervene. Capulet and Lady Capulet then leave. Juliet is left alone with the nurse. She expects to find solace and comfort in her, but the nurse has also taken a sharp U-turn and advises Juliet to abandon her romance with Romeo and abide by her parents wishes. Obviously, Juliet then feels unaided and bitterly betrayed by her nurse, who she tho... ... middle of paper ... ...ises adopted by my culture.
Examining Juliet's Response in Act 3, Scene 5 Juliet is very sad, extremely worried, by the time she is with her parents again. Romeo is going to leave Juliet after spending their wedding night together. This thought is unbearable for Juliet. Romeo has to go before day comes because otherwise, he will get caught by Juliet's kinsman and might be killed. Romeo uses a contrast and very direct simple language to explain his situation to Juliet 'I must be gone and live, or stay and die.'
Romeo then reminds her that if he is caught in Verona he will automatically be killed 'come death and welcome Juliet wills it so'. This part of the scene is not yet very tense, it is very romantic and emotional and the audience will feel sad for Romeo and Juliet because they can't be together. In this part of the scene there are a lot of images of love. This makes the audience feel more emotional because they know that they both will die. This is called dramatic irony.
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.
She also says that Romeo could never compare to him. Like Lord Capulet her mood changes very quickly. In Act 2 Scene 5, it was the nurse who organised Juliet's marriage and honeymoon. Then now she decides she does not like Romeo. This shows how the nurse's mood changes very quickly.
She pretends to care about Juliet’s feelings and desires, but it is soon revealed that Lady Capulet would rather have her daughter killed than be disobeyed. When given the choice between death or a terrible life, many would choose the easy way out, and this is exactly what the vulnerable Juliet is forced to do. To make matters worse, Juliet will not open up and tell her parents about her true love since the families are enemies. When she finds out that her true love is a Montague, she cries, “My only love sprung from my only hate.” (1.5.138). This quote shows that even Juliet knows that she cannot be with Romeo because of the feud and because she knows her parents will not allow it.
o ... ... middle of paper ... ...ty, ineffectual mother as you see in Act 1, Scene 3, she dismisses the Nurse, seeking to speak alone with her daughter, but as soon as the Nurse begins to depart, Lady Capulet becomes nervous and calls the Nurse back. These conflicts of these different types of love create a lot of dramatic tension because everyone has different views on the situation between Paris’s marriage proposal to Juliet. Yet not everybody will get what they want out of it in the end and some people may end up in hurt and sorrow. Our opinion today of love is very different. People think differently now, their mentality would be different so no one would end up in hurt or sorrow.
Heeding the Nurse’s warning Romeo quickly departs, leaving Juliet quite distressed. It is at this point that Lady Capulet enters. Seeing her daughter crying, Lady Capulet assumes her tears are for Tybalt: ‘Evermore weeping for your cousin’s death?’ There then begins dialogue between Juliet and her mother in which Juliet speaks in a series of double meanings. Lady Capulet informs Juliet that there is a plan afoot to poison Romeo (which is quite ironic, as Romeo does indeed die by poison). Juliet’s clever reply, however, fools Lady Capulet into believing that she hates Romeo: ‘Indeed I never shall be satisfied with Romeo, til I behold him – dead -…’ Whereas the audience know what she really means is, she will not be satisfied until she sees Romeo, ... ... middle of paper ... ...herefore, we can also see that within Act III, scene v Shakespeare has developed the tragedy of Juliet’s situation.
At the precise moment that Juliet says the second "stay! ", I want Tybalt to stab Romeo, and then for all the actors on the upper stage to collapse to floor so they are not seen. I believe that in the staging of this scene, with actors acting out Juliet's fantasies as she says them, I have exploited the full potential of the Elizabethan stage. Since their access to props and lighting was limited, words had to convey the idea of action, but by combining verbal and visual I wanted to maximise the impact of the words. Juliet's highly emotional state is shown by her restless movements over the stage and her imaginings are portrayed in the gallery above.
Without her, the play would be less entertaining as she adds humour to the play, but also makes the sad moment even more depressing as when Juliet dies, we feel sorry for the Nurse the most as she has brought her up from when she was born and she has to witness her tragic death, which she may feel partly responsible for, as she advised Juliet to forget about Romeo and wed Paris. The plot could not have been developed and the story could not have been facilitated if it was not for the essential character of the Nurse!
