"How does Shakespeare dramatise Capulet's relationship with his daughter Juliet, of the play's story" In this essay, I am going to examine how Shakespeare dramatises Capulet's relationship with his daughter Juliet in Act one Scene two. This play is about two families and marriage. The play starts with a street fight between two families; the Capulet's and the Montague's. During the play at beginning Capulet and Juliet have a close relationship. Later on Juliet's father wants her to marry Paris even though she is young. Juliet does not disagree with this but also does not accept it. "I'll look to like, if looking move. ...read more.


This is where the relationship falls apart. "Hang thee young baggage, disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church a Thursday, or never after look me in the face." "...wretched pulling fool..." Since what her father said about her disagreeing to not marry Paris she decides to take potion from Friar Lawrence to fall asleep for 42hours and then run away with Romeo, but the plan turns out wrong. Friar Lawrence sends a message about the plan but because Romeo does not receive it he thinks Juliet is dead, therefore he commits suicide. After Juliet awakens she finds out what happened from Friar Lawrence which she stabs her self with Romeos dagger and dies. ...read more.


Capulet: "O brother Montague, give me thy hand. This is my daughter's jointure, for no more can a demand." I have come to conclusion that in the beginning of the play the relationship between Capulet and his daughter was good, but when Juliet fell in love with the son of their families enemy Romeo and refused to marry Paris the relationship between her father and her began to fall apart and we know this because of the way Juliet's father was acting towards his daughter. Towards the end after the death of his daughter his relationship became close because he felt sympathy for her and was sorry for what he done and wanted peace between the two enemy families Montague and the Capulet's. ?? ?? ?? ??
