Introduction

The actress portraying Juliet needs to show the charaters rapid development from and obident daughter to a more confident young woman, determined to decide her own fate. Explore Act 1 scene 3 and Act 3 scene 5 in detail Juliets ralationship with her parents and the Nurse nd how this presented. When Juliet is introduced into the play she is shown as an innocent child who has everything decided for her. Lady Capulet refers to her as "it" and doesn't call her "Juliet". LC arrangesa marridge for her with Paris the reason being that he owns allot of power. Lady Capulet and Capulet beleive it's about time she settles down and had a family. They beleive Paris is the man for her because a man with power is what a woman needs. Not an man that she loves because it doesn't matter to LC and C, all that matters is power. If juliets married Paris not only would it make Juliet more powerful it would make the capulets more powerful. So It is important to them that she marries Paris. Juliet clearly doesn't want to marry a person that she doesn't love but Nurse and LC says that she will learn to love him. In the begining before she falls in love with Romeo, she is shown as a young immature girl but after the affect of Romeo and Juliets love occurs she is shown as a mature young lady. ...read more.

Middle

You can see this in the attitude she has the way she use her laguage. Nurse says that "Paris a man of wax" which is like saying that he is the perfect man. "He's a beutiful book without it's cover" meaning that he has everything but a woman. He needs a wife to complete his look like a coat or a piece of clothing. Lady Capulet says "Verona's summer hath not such a flower" he's the most beutiful in the whole of Verona. Juliet makes it clear that she is not at all intrested in marrying Paris, "It is an honour I dream not of." If marridge what was an honour then she wouldn't dream of wanting the honour. "An honour! Were not i thine only Nurse, i would say thou hadst suck'd wisdom from thy teat." Another embarrisin comment, as if Juliet is not capable of being embarrised, she talks about how she breat feeded her, not only that but she says she hasn't been the only one to do it before. "I'll look to like, i lookin liking move" a clever piece of of language. Juliet says she will try to look to at him with the intetion of liking him, if just looking at him is enough to make her like him. ...read more.

Conclusion

Capulet is a man of power and money. Juliet turns to her mother for mercy almost begging on her knees not to make her marry Paris. " O sweet my mother cast me not away! Delay this marriage for a month, a week, or if you do not, make my bridal bed in the dim monument where Tybalt lies. " She is saying if you do not delay the marriage and put it on hold then you might as well kill now. Which is quite ironic because she does "die" before the marriage can take place. Juliet is again refered to as 'her' and 'it', as if she has no name and she was just a servant to her father. Capulet makes a fool out of Juliet by immatating her to answer "I'll not wed, i cannot love" because Juliet does not want to marry Paris. Capulet wont stand or it. He isn't used to having people disobeying him especially from Juliet. So this is how he reacts. To conclude, Juliet has shown how much she has grown and it is the love or maybe even lust that she has with Romeo, that has triggered her sole be set free and to show her beutiful language of love that she has for Romeo. We have watched her transform from a girl to a young lady in few Scences. ...read more.
