Introduction

By the end of Act 3 Juliet's situation is very complicated. Discuss. By the end of Act 3 Juliet's situation is very complicated because she is very distraught over the problems in her life that include her family and her lover; Romeo. Juliet's problems began when she met Romeo at her father's masked ball and fell in love with him. He wooed her and they exchanged vows of love 'we wooed and made exchange of vow'. At this time Romeo and Juliet were ignorant that the feud between their families would not allow them to be together. She didn't know that he was a Montague until the nurse tells her 'the only son of your great enemy'. And he had no idea of her being a Capulet 'is she a Capulet?' ...read more.

Middle

In fight Mercutio ad Tybalt are killed and Romeo is banished from Verona because the Prince believes that Romeo is to blame for the two deaths. In the mean time Juliet is in her room waiting for Romeo to come and see her. This is a problem for Juliet when she finds out that Tybalt is dead and Romeo has been banished, as she is clueless about whom she must grieve for because Tybalt was her cousin and Romeo is her husband.

Conclusion

After tybalt dies, Juliet is really upset because Romeo has been banished. Capulet thinks that she's upset because of tybalt, and decides a wedding's just the thing to cheer her up. When Juliet refuses, Capulet gets really angry and tries to force her to marry Paris 'I tell thee what: get thee to church a' Thursday or never after look me in the face'. Juliet can't tell her parents she has got a valid reason for refusing to marry Paris, which is she's already married to Romeo. Her parents think she's just being difficult. Juliet trusts the nurse to begin with. She tells the nurse she loves Romeo, and the nurse willing acts as a go-between carrying messages. But the nurse betrays Juliet, by telling her to forget Romeo and marry Paris. So Juliet doesn't tell her about the potion plan. Reema Patel English Coursework ...read more.
