Juliet: Internal Conflict
People should not feud!
Act 2 Scene 2
Juliet shows internal conflict when she says, "If any of my relatives find you here they'll kill you because of who you are." (Shakespeare 3;64-65). Juliet is showing internal conflict within herself because although she wants Romeo to stay she also knows he should leave because her family would kill him.
Act 4 Scene 1
Juliet was having an internal battle with herself when Friar Lawrence told her," Take this vial... drink thou off... all thy veins shall run a cold drowsy humor... no pulse..."(Shakespeare 4;96-99) because she loves Romeo but she also knows the potion could not work and could be dangerous. Juliet probably had that split second of internal conflict.
Act 5 Scene 3
Juliet was so sad that Romeo was dead she wanted to kill herself for real. When she could not drink and of the poison Romeo took she was upset, Juliet then saw Romeos dagger and said, "O happy dagger! this is thy sheath. There rust and let me die." Juliet then stabs herself. Both the Montague's and the Capulet's children could have lived a long life if it was not for the feud.
Act 3 Scene 1
The theme, people should not feud, can be shown in the quote from Mercutio after Tybalt stabbed him, " I am hurt. A plague o' both your houses! I am spend."(Shakespeare 5; 58-59). Mercutio and Tybalt fought and both died because of the feud between the Montague's and Capulet's.
