Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Act 3 scene 5 is the turning point in Romeo and Juliet. At the beginning of the scene Romeo and Juliet are together happy and flirting, like a married couple. However they know they will be separated. Juliet's nurse comes to warn her that her mother is coming and Romeo goes. When Lady Capulet enters the scene Juliet does not know what news she is about to receive from her mother. The news is that Juliet is going to marry Paris on Thursday. This is ordered by Capulet. Because Tybalt has been murdered Capulet has realised Juliet could die anytime, it is unpredictable. Also he could die and who would care for Juliet. This makes him more anxious to give Juliet away to Paris. ...read more.

Middle

Lady Capulet is furious and gives her daughter no support or understanding she says 'Here comes your father, tell him so yourself' Capulet and the nurse enters the scene. Capulet thinks Juliet is crying because of Tybalt. He asks Lady Capulet if she delivered his decree. Again Lady Capulet sides with her husband and says I have delivered, but she gives you no thanks. She then says 'I would the fool married to her grave.' Lady Capulet gives no support to Juliet. Capulet does not understand and becomes angry he says if you don't go to church I will drag you there, if you don't marry Paris I will never speak to you. I thought one child was a blessing but now one is too much. ...read more.

Conclusion

Lady Capulet answers 'Talk mot to me, for I'll not speak a word, Do as thou, wilt, for I have done with thee.' Again she gives no support, saying do what you wish, as I'm not bothered. Juliet has one last person to turn to, the nurse. She asks her what I can do to stop this. However this time the nurse says Romeo is not here, and he is not able to return. But Paris is and he will make you happy. The nurse has betrayed Juliet and Juliet is alone with her opinion. She has realised the nurse is no use and says 'Well thou hast comforted me...and to be absolv'd.' Juliet is isolated she has no one to comfort or support her. Therefore the only person left who will understand is Friar Laurence, and she decides to see him. James Kuspisz Romeo and Juliet Coursework(B) ...read more.
