Her loyalties change, because initially when Juliet had told the Nurse that she required marrying Romeo and that she desperately needed her support, so as a result the nurse had supported Juliet. Conversely that very same Nurse thoughtfully advised Juliet to comply with her parents desires illuminating her true feeling and getting on with her life. Romeo ... ... middle of paper ... ...d also despite death. This play also deals with the idea of fate like many of Shakespeare's other plays. The fate caused by the circumstances of the feuding families predicted that these two would not be able to live together with the complete happiness of their families.
They start being bad-mannered and threatening towards Juliet. They threaten her by telling her that they will throw her out of the house if she does not marry County Paris. At the starting of the play, Lord Capulet and County Paris are having a conversation about Paris marrying Juliet. Lord Capulet is very courteous and tells County Paris that he has to win Juliet's heart if he wants to take her hand in marriage and to be his wife. Lord Capulet also says that he has only half of the saying and that the rest of the decision making is all up to his daughter, Juliet.
It is shown in this quotation: ‘Well in hit you miss: She’ll not be hit with cupid’s arrow’ The audience is told that Paris wants to marry Juliet but her father disagrees because he feels she is too young, however he invites Paris to the party to win Juliet’s heart. This is shown by Capulet saying: ‘But woo her gentle Paris, get her heart,’ When Juliet is asked about marriage by Lady Capulet she feels differently: ‘It is a honour that I dream not of.’ One of the ways Shakespeare makes this scene dramatically effective is by making Romeo discover Rosaline has been invited to the Capulet party. Benvolio urges Romeo to go and they decide to gatecrash the party. ... ... middle of paper ... ...s as Juliet asks the name of two other men before asking for Romeo’s. The audience feel they are being played by this story unfolding, and are very effective dramatically.
Shortly after she discovers that Romeo is a Montague, and an enemy to her family, she becomes torn between her love for Romeo and her loyalty to her family. She says, “My only love sprung from my only hate, too early seen unknown and known too late”. When Juliet is informed by the nurse that her cousin, Tybalt has been killed by Romeo, she has an inner conflict, finding it difficult to believe that her love has killed her cousin, but feeling as if she must still support Romeo, for they are married. She ends up siding with Romeo, and refuses her father’s requests for her to marry Paris. Her father is angered, as she gives no apparent reason for not wanting to marry.
Other reasons why the scene is important are that we get to the see the huge gap in the relationship of Juliet and her mother, and also we get to see other sides of the characters. One other way of getting across Romeo and Juliet's struggle is the way Shakespeare uses fate. Everything seems to happen to them because of something they did earlier. For example, because Romeo killed Tybalt, Juliet's parents want her to marry Paris. The audience feels more sorrow for the young couple because everything seems to be happening to them, although all they want is top be in love.
In Othello and Romeo and Juliet the father-daughter relationships of Brabantio and Desdemona and Juliet and Capulet focuses on love and possess. Similar to Juliet, Desdemona has a dilemma of choosing a lover over her family. Both works can compare to one another because of the father disagreements and greed over their daughters. Shakespeare uses Desdemona and Brabantio as a father-daughter relationship founded on love and possessiveness because he is manipulative on whom his daughter can or cannot marry. Desdemona should have the right to marry who she wants to spend her entire life with but at such a young age her father says he knows what is best for her.
Men were considered the bread winners of the family and women inferior to them. If a woman disagrees to her father's wishes, then she could be banished or disowned from the house. Juliet’s repudiation to marry Paris affects her father in a variety of ways. On his first encounter with Juliet, Lord Capulet asks why she is “evermo... ... middle of paper ... ... is stilted and genteel, whereas the Nurse is very open with her opinions, advice, and feelings with Juliet. In act 3 scene 2, when the Nurse informs Juliet about Romeo’s banishment and Tybalt's death, Juliet gets despondent.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a drama about the controversial role of authority that children have over their own lives. Juliet, at the beginning of the play is willing to concede anything for her parents. Romeo and Juliet’s progression from obedient to independent is a major factor in the play. If Romeo and Juliet had obeyed their parents, they would not be dead. Juliet would have been married to Paris and Romeo wasting his days looking for love.
This gives the impression that he cares deeply for his daughter, and is a good father. The phrase 'hopeful lady of my heart' suggests he has hope for her to be something special.
