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.
She even says "Enough of this, I pray thee hold thy peace" when Nurse talks too much to her Nurse is just another servant, but Nurse fails to notice this and talks to her as if they are equals. The amount Nurse talks shows her strong relationship with Juliet and that she is going to have a large part in the play. The Nurse's relationship with Juliet is strengthened when she talks about her own daughter ... ... middle of paper ... ...ne that changes constantly throughout the play. At the start of the play in her first scene she is simply Juliet's friend and link to her mother who doesn't really know how to talk to Juliet. In act1 scene5 she is shown not as much as a friend but more of a mother figure and protector.
In William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, love transforms Juliet. Early in the play, Juliet is a young girl who is very faithful to her family. After this young girl meets Romeo Montague, she begins to change. By the end of the play, Juliet is changed into a woman who is now very faithful to her husband, instead of her family. 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.
According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, love is a social need (“Maslow’s”). This can be used to determine why Lily abandoned her home. Maslow’s Hierarchy states that, “Children, adolescents or adul... ... middle of paper ... ...ue in the play, Juliet does come from a very prosperous family. Because of this, “children often spend their first years under the care of…nurses”(Grendler). Juliet goes to the Nurse to deliver a letter to Romeo rather than her own mother because she does not trust her enough.
Shakespeare contrasts the Nurse's memories of Juliet and her enjoyment of it, 'Now good sweet Nurse', the Nurse has so many memories about Juliet, she talks about her in a way her mother does and clearly enjoys the relationship. 'Faith, I can tell her age unto the hour'. This relationship is contrasted with the one Juliet has with her mother, Lady Capulet, which is more formal, 'Madam I am here, what is your will?'. In Act3 Scene 5, the Nurse warns Juliet that her mother is coming and Romeo to leave. The Nurse is included in Juliet's plans and plays a pivotal role to pass messages between Juliet and Romeo, for example, she gives the ring to Romeo earlier in this act.
Romeo and Juliet Character Study Juliet She's young, beautiful, independent, insightful, and in love. Although it's Juliet's physical appearance that first attracts Romeo, she is more than merely pretty. In her, Shakespeare crafts a heroine who not only chooses to think for her, but also has the courage to act independently. For modern audiences, it's this combination of beauty and strength of character that makes her so appealing. The first instance in which Juliet demonstrates independent thinking is when her mother asks her about the possibility of an engagement to a suitor named Paris.
This is how parents usually speak with young ones, to ensure that they behave correctly. However, in this case, Juliet is old enough to have a conversation with Lady Capulet regarding important endeavors such as marriage. In addition, Lady Capulet reproaches Juliet for grieving shortly after the loss of Tybalt and the banishment of Romeo. She states that “Some grief shows much of love, / But much of grief shows still some want of wit” (3.5.72-73). 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.
The Character of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet The Nurse has a very important role in the play, being Juliet’s closest friend and helping her in her illicit relationship with Romeo. Her position in the Capulet household is superior to that of a normal servant. She is very familiar when she talks to Lady Capulet, and at times oversteps the mark. She talks about the daughter she once had and lost, and it is evident that Juliet is like a replacement and the Nurse lavishes all her motherly love and protectiveness on Juliet. She is bossy to the other servants, we see this in the beginning when she gives orders to Peter and bosses him around.
Romeo and Juliet A character goes through many changes that depend on the kind of events they experience. The play “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, uses different tones and language that shows the readers that Juliet, a Protagonist, changes over time, proving the idea that she is a dynamic character. At the beginning of the play, we are introduced to a young, innocent and inexperienced girl, Juliet the daughter of Lord Capulet . She has not yet seen the real world and is raised by the person she trusts most, her nurse. Juliet begins as a naive child who has thought little about love and marriage, but she grows up quickly upon falling in love with Romeo, the son of her family’s great enemy.
Shakespeare's Presentation of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' is a story of two families with an 'ancient grudge'. One family the Capulets is the home of Juliet and her Nurse who is also a close friend. She is more of a mother figure to Juliet than her natural mother.
