___________________________Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare

 

STUDYWORLD STUDYNOTES

Romeo and Juliet

 

Analysis of Act Three

Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) , a good friend of Romeo's, ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliet's cousin. Tybalt kills Mercutio, which causes Romeo to kill Tybalt in an angry rage. For this, Romeo is banished from Verona. At the same time, the Capulet's are planning Juliet's marriage to Paris.

The problems that occur in this act might have been avoided if the marriage of Romeo and Juliet had been made public. Possibly both families might have been willing to put their long standing feud to rest.

Capulet's hasty decision to set the wedding date is met with defiance on the part of Juliet. This infuriates him tremendously and he threatens to disinherit her. His anger at being thwarted by his daughter clearly shows a lack of compassion as well as selfishness. He ignores his daughter's desires and only cares about himself and what he feels will improve his family's status.

Juliet feels totally abandoned because everyone around her, even the Nurse who is her confidant, advises her to marry Paris.
