Juliet: Internal Conflict

People should be careful of his or her heart

Act 1, Scene 5

Juliet speaks to the Nurse about the gentleman that she was with. The Nurse responds by telling her that he is a Montague. Juliet is distressed that she " must love a loathed enemy", she realizes her love for him is forbidden (1018). Her family would not allow them together nor would they have Juliet to marry someone that they did not approve of. That brings Juliet grief knowing that they may not be together.

Act 2, Scene 6

Juliet recites her vows, "but my true love is grown to such excess I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth" she profound her love for Romeo (1042). But, she may not speak of it to her family. To hold deep feeling in for someone proves to be quite difficult for Juliet. Whereas she has people that aid her and Romeo's relationship. They usually help her out in these tough situations, yet she still does not have a family support system.

Act 3, Scene 4

The Nurse tells Juliet of Tybalt's death and Romeo's banishment. Juliet makes sense of Romeo defending himself from her angered cousin. But she is overall focused on her love being sent away; distraught that she may never see him again. Juliet beings to think "Romeo is exiled...I'll to my wedding bed; And death, not Romeo, take my maidenhead" she'd rather take his place or die herself (1042).

Act 3, Scene 5


Juliet talk about hurt she feels, "Yet let me weep for such feeling a loss...And yet no man like he doth grieve my heart" her love is forced to leave Verona (1065-1066). If he stays he would be killed. Juliet is very depressed that her and Romeo are forbade to see each other. This wouldn't have been the outcome if Romeo had never gotten between a fight...
