Juliet in act 3 scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

One of the most famous plays written by Shakespeare is 'Romeo and Juliet' which was written in the 16th century. The play evolves around these two characters. It is about love, hate and honour of two families-the Montague's and Capulet's. The feud between these two families has been going on for so long that they have currently forgot what they are fighting over.

The two characters Romeo and Juliet both suffer from tragic circumstances, I will go into more detail further on in the essay.

There are also a few more characters that have a major role in this play. They are Benvolio, Mercutio, Tybalt, Lord Capulet, Lady Capulet…show more content…

This play consists of a lot of dramatic irony, this scene in particular.

"Well girl, thou weeps't not so much for his death

as the villain lives, which slaughtered him."

This is an ironic quote from lady Capulet as she thinks that Juliet wants Romeo (her husband) dead for murdering Tybalt. Infact Juliet is really crying for Romeo. Juliet says this to the audience:

"[Aside] Villain and he be many miles asunder-

God pardon him! I do, with all my heart" (Act 3 Scene 5)

Notice that she only says this to the audience as the stage direction shows this. This quote also proves that Juliet forgives Romeo for killing Tybalt.

To make us fell more sympathetic towards Juliet, Shakespeare has her lie to her mother and go along with Lady Capulet:

"Ay, madam, from the reach of those my hands;

would none but i venge my cousins death"(Act 3 Scene 5)

Juliet says that she want to kill Romeo with her own hands, and have revenge for Tybalt, it would be difficult for Juliet to say this about Romeo.

Lady Capulet teh says something that has Juliet more worried about Romeo, Lady Capulet says:

"we will have vengence for it, fear thou not;

then weep no more, i'll send one to

Act III Scene V

This is a very important scene. Select and comment on key moments for the audience in this scene. What are some of the differences in attitudes between then and now?

Romeo and Juliet are waking up together after there first night of being man and wife. The beginning of this scene is very important because it shows the readers how much Romeo and Juliet actually love each other, they do not want to sep. Juliet begins by suggesting that they have been awakened by the nightingale and therefore it must still be night:…show more content…

This point in the scene makes the audience feel compassionate for their separation as they clearly love each other so intensely.

The next key point in this scene is after the Nurse has warned Romeo and Juliet of Lady Capulet's proximity. Romeo is about to leave out of the window and is saying his last words to Juliet. He makes a promise to her that he will not forget to keep in touch:

"I will omit no opportunity That may convey my greetings, love to thee."

When Romeo is below Juliet's window before he leaves, Juliet looks down and sees Romeo's grave with him in it. This premonition is an example of the Irony in this scene, because death and both Romeo and
Juliet come together near the end of the play. Juliet's premonition also has an effect on what the audience feel about the events that may occur after this scene. It makes the think what could come about of this premonition and why. Is Romeo going to die and if he does is it because of Juliet?

The exit of Romeo brings to another key scene in the play. This is where Lady Capulet enters and brings with her a sudden change in mood and pace of speech. The romance is gone and the mood which Lady
Capulet perceives as Juliet's grief for her cousin Tybalt is really her sadness of Romeo leaving. The audience is shown the miss-conception of Lady Capulet when Juliet plays on words and makes it seem like she wants to kill Romeo as
