How Lord Capulets reaction to Juliet changed through out the play

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In this piece of coursework I am investigating how Lord Capulet's Feelings to Juliet change throughout the play. A brief outline of his feelings is that he loves her at the start then hates her for disobeying him, and when she dies he loves her and is really sad. In Romeo and Juliet Capulets love for Juliet changes as she gets disobedient but when she dies he feels more love for her. At the beginning of the play Capulet reveals himself to be a loving father "she is the hopeful lady of my earth". This implies that she is all he has and he doesn't care about anything else but her happiness. ...read more.

Middle

Paris "on Thursday let it be-O' Thursday, tell her, she shall be married to this noble earl"- this shows that she is still his world because he wants her to be happy. In Act 3 scene 5 Capulet hates Juliet because she has been disobedient by refusing to marry Paris this enrages Capulet, "Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!" because in the time that the play was set it was highly disrespectful to disobey your father or any man because it was a male dominant society. In Act 4 scene 2 Capulet has now forgiven Juliet because she has agreed to marry Paris and apologised to Capulet, so Capulet has welcomed her back to the family "My heart is wondrous light, Since this same wayward girl is so reclaimed" so he has forgiven her for being disobedient. ...read more.

Conclusion

In Act 4 scene 5 Capulet already misses Juliet even though she has just died and he still loves her and missing her and keeps blaming death "there she lies, flower as she was, deflowered by him," by doing this he's showing he loves her. At the end of the play in Act 5 scene 3 Capulet has made peace with Montague and though Romeo and Juliet should still be together "O brother Montague, give me thy hand, This is my daughters jointure, for no more Can I demand. As rich shall Romeo's by his lady's lie, Poor sacrifices of our enmity" this shows that he now cares about the Montagues because Juliet loved Romeo and their death has brought together the Montagues and Capulets. ?? ?? ?? ??
