  1. Tybalt and Anger in "Romeo and Juliet".

    Tybalt is presented as a violent, provocative, yet justified character within this extract as his intense anger for the Montagues begun from his love for his family. During Tybalt and Capulet?s conversation in this extract, Tybalt constantly refers to violence and anger, allowing Shakespeare to present ideas common in the Elizabethan society, as Tybalt?s violence is due to his revenge because Romeo has attended the Capulet party uninvited, however, Tybalt?s anger could also be triggered because he has a deep love towards his family, therefore the ?ancient grudge? mentioned in the Prologue has an immense effect on his actions.

  2. How does Shakespeare present conflict at the start of Romeo and Juliet

    Therefore right at the start of the scene he calls them ?profaners?. This is very emotive language and helps to underline the Prince?s contempt for both of the families and their conflict. The audience when they hear language like this will then associate both families as being not being very religious and being opposed to God and His purposes. The contempt that the Prince and the audience is supposed to feel for both of the fighting families is further emphasised in the description of their swords as ?neighbor-stained steel?. Clearly what the Prince is trying to highlight here is that both families are behaving in a very selfish immature way and are showing an unchristian regard for their neighbours.

  3. The Different Tyoes of Love in "Romeo And Juliet".

    These lovers are prepared to disobey their families and commit their loyalties for each other. When Romeo first sees Juliet, her beauty evidently strikes him. She shines out to him like 'a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear' or a 'snowy dove trooping with crows'. Romeo?s contrast between light and dark symbolizes a contrast between how he feels about Juliet and how he feels about Rosaline. He compares Juliet to light, whiteness and purity, whereas the imagery he uses when talking about Rosaline revolves around darkness.

  4. Describe Juliets interactions with other characters in the Act 3 Scene 5 of the Play

    The phrase ?Art thou gone so? Love, Lord, Ay, Husbansd, Friend? I must hear from thee every day in the hour, for in a minute there are many days, O, by this count I shall be much in years? portrays how she can?t live without him. The fact that Juliet calls him by so many names displays how many roles Romeo fulfils in her life and how important Romeo is to her. To further emphasise this she tells Romeo how time will be slow without him and one minute will be many days; this demonstrates her love and importance as Romeo not being with her can alter time which is impossible.
