Extracts from this document...


Juliet's character and Personality In the play Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is changing a lot throughout the play. She starts as a young girl who is thirteen and matures into a high level compared to someone her age. At the beginning of the play, Juliet is a very obedient girl and does everything her parents tell her she should. She doesn't make much trouble and her parents believe she will make the right choices. When her father, Lord Capulet, is asked by Paris to be able to marry Juliet he says: "Earth hath swallowed all my hopes but she is the hopeful lady of my earth.... and she agreed within her scope of choice lies my consent and fair according voice". This means that Capulet loves Juliet very much and he wants the best for her and he shows this by letting her choose whether she wants to marry Paris or not. ...read more.
