Extracts from this document...


An enormous amount of drama is created in Shakespeare�s play, 'Romeo and Juliet�, in Act 3, scene 5 and in many others as well. The drama is being created in many different ways, by each character. There are two main types of drama that are used throughout the play to create drama; these are the use of suspense and the pace at which some of the characters act. The drama around Juliet is created by her father, Lord Capulet, her mother, Lady Capulet, and her nurse, and is created using different methods at different intervals in the act I am studying and in many others. I am going to show how the nurse in the play creates drama around Juliet first; this is because she seemed in the play to have a closer relationship to Juliet than her mother or father. ...read more.


Throughout this scene, the nurse rapidly changes her mind of Juliet�s marriage with Romeo, and urges her to marry count Paris, as this would please her parents and stop any trouble from brewing. This is shown when the nurse says, "I think it is best you married the county". wwfe few esfefes ayfe feba nfe kcfe feuk: At the beginning of the scene the nurse, along with Juliet, were the only two people that could see that names did not, and should not matter when it comes down to true love. I think that the nurse creates drama with the audience/reader here as she seems to be Juliet�s best friend and likes to help in any problems until near the end of the scene when she turns on the friendship to try and persuade Juliet to do what her parents think is right instead of doing what she thought was right. ...read more.


Lady Capulet however uses very extravagant language showing her upper class status in society, yet she does not really have a very good relationship with Juliet and needs the nurse at many important stages throughout the play. wwfg fgw esfgfgs ayfg fgba nfg kcfg fguk: She seems to over-react to situations either that people disagree with her about or that she does not control. This maybe due to the death of Tybalt but other examples in the play can be found. Juliet turns to her mother is desperation when Lord Capulet shouts and gets angry with Juliet not wanting to marry Paris. She says to her mother, "Or if you do not, make the bridal bed in that dim monument where Tybalt lies". This shows her devotion to Romeo to the audience but to her mother and father this would show a sign of stubbornness. This part of the scene is very dramatic because of the pace, and how tempers rise between members of the family. ...read more.
