Introduction

Consider the Dramatic significance of the characters of Tybalt and Frair Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet. In this essay I am going to consider the dramatic significance of the characters of Tybalt and Frair Lawrence in the play Romeo and Juliet. When studying the character Tybalt he comes across as being very loyal towards the Capulets. I have reason to believe that Tybalt is very loyal to the Capulets as I have evidence from Act 1 Scene 5. Tybalt recognises a Montagues voice and gets prepared to withdraw his sword and protect the Capulets from an intruder. " This by voice should be a Montague. Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave? Come hither, covered with an antic face, To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? ...read more.

" Go to" is an expression of anger. So just from those to phrases we can automatically tell that Tybalt is trying to cause confliction when it isn't required or necessary. " You'll not endure him? God shall mend your soul, You'll make my a mutiny among my guests?" This is a line continuing from the above, this line shows that the Capulet doesn't want Tybalt to make a fuss at the party. The Capulet just wants Tybalt to be on his best behaviour and carry on as normal. After the Capulet has warned Tybalt, Tybalt questions the Capulet. " Why, uncle, 'tis a shame" The Capulet then follows on by saying: " You are a saucy boy. Is t so indeed?" This line is explaining that Tybalt is insolent and the Capulet questions Tybalt is there any need for his behaviour and attitude. ...read more.

Conclusion

" I will withdraw, but this intrusion shall, Now seeming sweet, convert to bitterest gall." This basically means that he will withdraw and leave Romeo alone, but what seems sweet and innocent now will turn into nasty hatred. Frair Lawrence is like a priest in the play is set with fate and chances occurences, his rash behaviour in the play adds dramatic tension. Romeo tells Friar Lawrence that he has fallen in love with a Capulet- Juliet. " Then plainly know my heart dear love is set on the fair daughter of rich Capulet" Frair Lawrence points out his love for Rosalyn was not true love, he agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet. In act 3 scene 3 Frair Lawrence stops Romeo from committing suicide and to continue with the marriage to Juliet " Its my dear son with such sour company. I bring thee tidings of the princes doom" Romeo and Juliet Essay By Vicky Moyce 11Bronte ...read more.
