In the play entitled Romeo and Juliet, two people named Romeo and Juliet fall in love with one another. They are obsessed with one another that they feel as if they should be together all the time regardless of the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues. Being obsessed with one another is a type of romantic crush, not an identity crush which is explained in the article Adolescence and the Teenage Crush. Not only does Shakespeare use romantic crushes in the play, but he also uses identity crushes in the play to show what may happen if parents do not pay close attention to their teens’ relationships.
On Act 2 and Scene 4 so at the end of Act 1 Juliet is in love with Romeo and that fast she fall in love and Juliet and Romeo want to get married ,although there parents hate each other. So the next day Juliet send The Nurse to find Romeo and let him know that the rope ladder will be there ,although The Nurse got teased by Mercutio. The Nurse said this to Romeo although she angry, “Therefore, if you should dead trouble with her, truly it were an ill thing to be offered to any gentlemen. Romeo agree that he be the Palace to see Juliet. That the end of Act 2 and scene
The nurse returns, sensing Juliet’s earnestness, and purposely messes with her, telling Juliet “How [her] bones ache” and “what a jaunt [she] has”. Later in the scene, Romeo and Juliet marry, despite only knowing each other for 2 days at the time, leading to the idea that they may just be in lust rather than in true love.
Friar Lawrence and the nurse are both good mentors to Romeo and Juliet, but when it comes to themselves, they back out. Friar Lawrence gives both Romeo and Juliet advice with multiple warnings to exercise caution over their relationship and marries them with good intentions for the city. The nurse, on the other hand, is more of a motherly character and is used as a messenger between Romeo and Juliet, but when Romeo is banished, she urges Juliet to forget about Romeo proving she cares more for Juliet’s interests at heart. Ultimately, at the end of the story, both mentors end up saving themselves, with the nurse telling Juliet to give up Romeo and Friar Lawrence running away from the Capulet tomb where Romeo, Juliet, and Paris lay dead.
The nurse is very loyal to Juliet as shown in the past quote. The nurse is taking a chance at talking to Romeo for she knows that he is of the house of Montague and god knows the penalty for the interaction between.
First of all, The Nurse supports Juliet throughout the majority of the play, but her unsound advice is a notable reason for the young lovers’ downfall. For instance, Juliet appreciates The Nurse’s help during the beginning of her and Romeo’s relationship, but what Juliet is blind to is the damage that The Nurse does as she unintentionally leads Juliet to her death when she says “Then hie you hence to Friar Laurence’ cell;/ There stays a husband to make you a wife” (Shakespeare, II, v, 68-69). In essence, the wedding that The Nurse encourages Romeo and Juliet to have reflects her negative influence on their relationship as Juliet is left increasingly vulnerable to Romeo’s impulsivity, which is an extremely relevant cause of Juliet’s eventual demise. Additionally, both Romeo and Juliet are significantly affected by the immature behavior of their kin. Specifically, Juliet displays her eradicated ability to form rational decisions when she speaks of the pressure her family puts on her as she says “My only love sprung from my only hate!/ Too early seen unknown, and known too late!/ Prodigious birth of love it is to me/ That I must love a loathed enemy” (Shakespeare, I, v, 138-141). This internal conflict that arises when Juliet discovers that Romeo is a Montague is of significance
In the story of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates the theme of identity in his writing through the tragedy that unfolds between the two lovers. As the play progresses, Shakespeare’s writing appeals the idea of identity to the audience with his detailed characters as they ponder what their identity is and what it means to be oneself. Age, gender, and family affiliation are key concepts that Shakespeare uses to appeal his theme of identity in the play to the world.
The lovers spilled about their confidential relationship; Juliet to her Nurse and Romeo to his Friar, the secrets then get bigger and bigger with the nurse having to hide that Juliet was in love with her enemy to her father who was persistent to marry Juliet to Paris; a County at St. Peter’s Church, and the Friar who had to hide the fact that he was the one who married the two. The situation gets worse after Romeo gets banished from Verona and Juliet confides to the Friar, threatening herself with suicide if she wasn’t with her beloved, the Friar then suggests her to fake her death and eventually be with Romeo, another secret added to the list. This information becomes modified and ends up making its way to Romeo who assumes that Juliet has genuinely died. The consequence of this is Romeo claiming he “will [lay] with [her] tonight” (V.i.36) which outcomes in ending the short-lived lives of not only Romeo, but Juliet as
The Nurse is a good friend of Juliet´s and also played a big role in raising her. The nurse wanted the best for juliet and for her to be happy therefore, she encouraged her to get married. ¨Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, Two may keep counsel, putting one away..¨(2.4, 185) This showed how the nurse knew how dangerous it was for the people to find out they were married yet, she still allowed the marriage and told them to betray their parents and keep it secret. The nurse also sent Romeo letters for Juliet to keep them in contact. ¨There stays a husband to make you a wife. Now comes the wanton blood up in your cheeks.¨(2.5). This shows that the nurse had talked to romeo. Although, Friar is the one who brought the idea of
There are many characters that could be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, mainly including their parents and the feud between their families. The nurse, who was Juliet’s most close and trusted friend, would deliver letters to Romeo and helped arrange Romeo and Juliet’s marriage. In Act 3; Scene 5, after Romeo was banished for killing Tybalt and avenging Mercutio’s murder, the nurse completely disregarded their marriage and proposed to Juliet that she should instead marry someone she is not in love with, the rich and noble Paris. The nurse later says that Romeo is a mere “dishclout” or dishcloth compared to the noble Paris.
Romeo and Juliet is a comedic and tragic play written by Shakespeare. The two are star-crossed lovers as they are bitter rivals of the House of Montague and Capulet . In Act 3, Scene 5, The Nurse describes
When Juliet First came to the Nurse expressing her love for Romeo the Nurse states “his name is Romeo, and a Montague, The only son of your great enemy” (1.4, 134-135). At this moment the Nurse warned Juliet and she continued to help her marry Romeo. The Nurse had some help from Friar Lawrence, the Nurse did not have to carry on with the plan Friar Lawrence
The Nurse concedes this proposal because of her motherly affection towards Juliet, as it is in her best interest and desires to witness Juliet wed with a genuine love rather than an arranged agreement. Although this can be seen as an congenial gesture, it completely rescinds the social discourses of the time, consequently justifying that the Nurse is not a great advisor unlike the Friar. The first exposure to the Friar shows his careful, wise manner and his obvious care for Romeo’s best interests rather than his own satisfactions. This characterization of Friar Laurence is greatly flawed due to his impetuous thinking when put under the pressure of having two teens approach him with the intention of killing themselves, as he attempts to guide Romeo and Juliet during their struggles. Shakespeare laminates the Friar with fault as he is arguably the incentive, along with the nurse for Romeo and Juliet's cessation, hence becoming the rationale of their declivity.
One of the most important relationships in Romeo and Juliet is the relationship between the Nurse and Juliet. In Act 1, Scene 3 we are introduced to the most vivid character of the play, the Nurse. With her speech that begins "Even or odd, of all days in the year, Come Lammas Eve at night shall she be fourteen." (1.3.16-48), we learn that she nursed
