Introduction

Katy Blair 11F Romeo & Juliet: Shakespeare pre 20th Drama Coursework: English & Literature. How does Shakespeare make the Audience feel increasingly sympathetic towards Juliet in Act 3 Scene 5? Act 3 scene 5. In Act 3 scene 5, many things have happened. This scene is very important; Shakespeare makes this scene very sympathetic. As now Romeo has been banished from Verona and has to leave to Mantua, because he killed Tybalt, over Mercutio's death. This makes the audience feel sympathy for Juliet as she loves him and has got married secretly. The tension builds up, as there is high emotion. Romeo and Juliet spend, their first night together, and that morning Romeo has to leave for Mantua. The tension builds up, as there is violence, and revenge between Montagues and Capulets. In Act 3 scene 5, the scene takes place in Juliet's bedroom, the morning after Romeo and Juliet spent the night together, their 'night of passion'. It is set in the rich Capulets house, in Juliet's bedroom, while Juliet and Romeo are talking to each other. ...read more.

Middle

When Romeo is going to leave to Mantua, Romeo is prepared to die for Juliet, just to stay with her. "And light thee on thy way to Mantua, therefore stay yet, thou need'st not to be gone" Juliet then starts to panic as she know if Romeo is found he would be killed. "It is, it is hie hence, be gone, away," In Act3 scene 5 lines 70 Lady Capulet enters the scene. The bond with Lady Capulet and Juliet is very small. The way Lady Capulet greets Juliet, shows that she is not used for her mother to talk to her. "Ho daughter are you up?" Lady Capulet is callous and unkind, this shows that Lady Capulet is there just because it is a word, but all Juliet's life the nurse has brought Juliet up. Lady Capulet has never addressed Juliet by her name, "Well girl?" When Lady Capulet tells her about the marriage and Juliet refuses, Lady Capulet becomes again callous and unkind she tells Juliet to sort it out with her father. ...read more.

Conclusion

Shakespeare makes this scene very tense as he as made it like Juliet has no-one else, to turn to, he makes the audience feel that there is no longer a bond between anyone but Romeo. The audience feels a lot of sympathy for Juliet as now she has no one else to turn to, her mother and father has told her to marry Paris, she is in a very difficult position. This builds up more tension as now Juliet has a choice; she has to choose between her father and Romeo. She has married Romeo, but if she does not marry Paris, she will be homeless and she would of lost her family because she would be disobeying them. My thoughts and feelings about the play is that, I thought it was good. I like the way that Shakespeare puts a lot of emotion, sympathy and tense in Act 3 scene 5. Shakespeare makes the audience feel the emotions that are viewed in Act 3 scene 5. The actual Play shows all of the emotions in Act 3 scene 5 especially for Romeo and Juliet's love. Overall I think the play was really good. ...read more.
