Connections, Similarities and Differences between Capulet from Romeo + Juliet and the Duke from My Last Duchess
Transcript of Connections, Similarities and Differences between Capulet from Romeo + Juliet and the Duke from My Last Duchess
obsessed with lineage (family life, name, tradition) and Juliet is his hope that their family name can be carried on as she is the only child left: "The earth hath swallow'd all my hopes but she,
She is the hopeful lady of my earth," (Act 1 Scene 2 lines 288-289). This is similar to My Last Duchess because the Duke describes how the Duchess thought of his gift of lineage like anyone
elses: "As if she ranked
My gift of a nine-hundred-year-old name
With anybody's gift," (lines 32-34) Similarity - Possessive Difference - Jealousy In the poem, My Last Duchess, Robert Browning portrays the character, that is the Duke, with a large amount of jealousy over the men that his Duchess supposedly "thanked" as to him, she "thanked" them in a way he somehow knew not how. An example of this is: "She thanked men, - good! but thanked
Somehow - i know not how," (lines 31 and 32) In My Last Duchess, the Duke expresses that he has a very possessive attribute as Robert Browning portrays the character in this way by using words associated with possession, for example: "That's my last Duchess painted on the wall," (line 1) This is similar to Capulet in Romeo + Juliet as Shakespeare portrays him as possessive over his daughter Juliet because she will carry on his "Capulet" legacy. An example of this possessiveness, is: "The earth hath swallow'd all my hopes but she, She is the hopeful lady of my earth:" (Act 1 scene 2, lines 284-285).
