Introduction

Sam Butterworth Page 1 G.C.S.E English Romeo and Juliet How do you react to the behavior of lord Capulet towards his daughter concerning Paris' proposal of marriage? The events that have just occurred before we look at the relationship of lord Capulet and his daughter are, Romeo has just been banished from Verona for killing Tybalt his new wife's cousin. So there are tensions in the seen already before lord Capulet talks of marriage to Juliet. In act three scene four, lord Capulet is talking to Paris, who is a very rich man and is also related to the Prince. Lord Capulet at this time I think is very nervous and is thinking that because Tybalts' death was so sudden he could easily be next. ...read more.

However Juliet is not. This is where I think that Lord Capulet changes from reflecting on his daughter's happiness to being possessed into a violent rage. Lord Capulet must be thinking at this time he did this to show her his love, that if he passes away then she will be looked after. And Paris is such a good match, as well as being related to the prince. With this Lord Capulet then moves to insulting Juliet like... "You green-sickness carrion out, you baggage! You tallow face" Act three scene five, lines 156 and 157 ...which I think would have such a big effect on Juliet, her own farther calling her names like that. ...read more.

Conclusion

Lord Capulet has given his word to Paris that he will marry Juliet, and tries to blackmail her with if she doesn't marry Paris then he will disown her. This will have a big effect on Juliet, her farther has never acted like this before with her and also because of what happened with Romeo her life had enough problems. Especially when you're a 14 year old girl, problems that happen seem ten times worse, Lord Capulet does I think have reason to get angry with Juliet. However not as angry as he did, she's only 14 and in my opinion he should have respected his daughters wishes, Lord Capulet is indeed a product of his time. ...read more.
