romeo and juliet

Extracts from this document...


Lady Capulet's job was running the house and organising parties, producing children and caring for them and being a match maker for the family. She expects Juliet to do a similar thing as she does, and expects her to marry a wealthy man, Lady Capulet probably doesn't love Lord Capulet because the marriage was arranged, but is probably like a close friend. She would find it hard to love him because she is like property to him. Lady Capulet didn't raise Juliet she employed the nurse to be a wet nurse.

Through out the play Lady Capulet shows how much she respects but also fears her husband, she says, "Talk not to me, for I'll not speak a word Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee." This means that's she doesn't care for what Juliet has to say and just wants her to agree with Lord Capulet. She would agree with him because of the amount of respect he has and of what he might do if she doesn't listen. I would have her staring at Juliet as if agreeing with her, but then she would shake her head to say that she shouldn't say and then begin to talk. ...read more.
