Romeo and Juliet

In Shakespeare’s, “Romeo and Juliet,” one can see the contrast between plot, character

development and theme; three important elements of literature that are ongoing throughout the

book. In Act 2 Scene 5, specifically, there are many factors adding to the plot, such as Romeos

descriptive orders involving his marriage with Juliet. This scene also shows a new side of the

character Juliet, as her mood changes and her thoughts portray a darker side of her. The audience

experiences a different side to the beloved Juliet, as well as the Nurse. Then the theme of haste

and delay continues ...view middle of the document...

Also, a clear

entertainment value can be noticed with the arguing going on between the Nurse and Juliet,

which adds to the action, making the plot. It is evident in this scene that the plot is advanced; and

for its importance, it should remain in the book.

In the play, Juliet is considered to be a kind, caring and positive person. This scene

reveals her darker side and expresses a change in her personality, giving us insight on her weaker

traits such as nervousness, frustration and impatience. She continues her argument with the

Nurse but the Nurse continues to hold back the information. In this quote, Juliet reveals some of

her impatience: “How art thou out of breath when thou has breath, to say to me that thou art out

of breath? /Is thy news good or bad? Answer to that.” (Act 2 Sc. 5 II 31-32, 35) This quote shows

a darker side to Juliet as it she shows she can be serious at times even with her most respected

family members, such as the Nurse. At first, Juliet does not realize what the Nurse is trying to do

but she soon becomes irritated. “Where is my mother? Why, she is within. Where should she be?

How oddly thou repliest!” (Act 2 Sc 5 II 59-60) This is evidence that Juliet is very annoyed. The

Nurse has been close with her since birth but this scene displays how, when Romeo invokes love

in Juliet’s life, she becomes a different person. Another detail about the Nurse is revealed when

she holds back her information, showing us that she can be a trustworthy and honest person. Her

characters true colours are also seen.

A theme of haste/delay and serious romance is consistent with Romeo and Juliet. Act 2

scene 5...
