The Nurse

Romeo and Juliet

People should be there when someone they loves needs them most.

In the beginning of the play, the nurse and Juliet where very close companions. The nurse also known as Angelica, was Juliet's wet nurse, but more importantly a second mom to her. When Juliet fell in love Romeo the nurse supported her when no one else did. Toward the end of the book Romeo was banished from Verona for killing Tyblat. This causes the relationship between Angelica and Juliet changes. The theme of this connection is a person should be there when someone they love needs them most. Because, when Romeo is banished Juliets heart is broken. Then her parents make it worse by telling her that she is marring Paris or she is dead to them. When Juliet goes to the nurse for help she say to just marry Paris. Juliet felt be-trade and when Juliet need the nurse the most and she wasn't their for her, because she was the only one Juliet had left, and then the nurse took sides with her parents, Juliet felt completely alone.
