Romeo and Juliet - Sociogram
Transcript of Romeo and Juliet - Sociogram
Romeo meets the Nurse through his relationship with Juliet and have only had a few interactions in the play. The two characters have not had time to form strong opinions about each other and their current stance is largely affected by Juliet's emotions for them at the time.
Juliet is the main love interest for Romeo in the play. They claim that their love is true however throughout the play fate seems to be working against them. Romeo is helplessly devoted to Juliet and would do anything for her.
Bevolio is Romeo's cousin and good friend. Benvolio is a good influence on Romeo and is often trying to convince him to do the right thing. This contributes to Benvolio's role as the "christ figure" in the play. Benvolio also gives Romeo advice such as, when he was depressed over Rosaline and Bevolio took him to the Capulet's masquerade.
Mercutio is Romeo's best friend. They share a strong platonic relationship and are often friendly bantering.
Friar Lawrence is portrayed as a father figure towards Romeo. Friar Lawrence often has good intentions for Romeo however his plans do not always come to life like he pictured.
Romeo is the protagonist of the play Romeo and Juliet. He is portrayed as impulsive, emotional and passionate.
Romeo and Juliet - Sociogram
Romeo's symbol is the rose because it is the universal sign of love. Romeo is lovesick, his emotions are displayed prominently on his sleeve and love is the cause of his often depressed state.
Love is not eternal, it can never last forever which is similar to the rose which shrivels up and dies.
Romeo and Paris have a mutual dislike for each other but for different reasons. Paris believes that Romeo killed his soon to be wife's cousin and is therefore a villain and untrustworthy. Romeo dslikes Paris because he gets in his way while he is trying to see Juliet's grave.
Tybalt, living up to his hate-filled reputation, has a strong dislike for all Montagues including Romeo. Romeo, because of his marriage to Juliet knows that they are related and therefore cares for Tybalt.
During the introduction of the play we find out that Romeo has been infatuated with Rosaline. He does not seem to want to talk about anyone else and is very depressed because his love is unrequieted.
Lord and Lady Montague
Lord and Lady Montague are Romeo's parents however they are distant and do not act like parents in the modern sense. They still care about Romeo but they are not an active part of his life.
Good friends (mutual)
Cousins and good friends (mutual)
Father figure (one-sided)
Parent-son relationship (distant)
Lord and Lady Capulet
Lord and Lady Capulet do not interact with Romeo throughout the play and only know of eachother through their reputation. When Romeo kills Tybalt the Capulets decide that they hate Romeo.
True love (mutual)
Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford
No better term than this: thou art a villain.
Tybalt, the reason that I have to love thee
Doth much excuse the appertaining rage
To such a greeting. Villain am I none."
Tybalt's symbol is fire because fire represents the bringer of destruction and symbolizes chaos and war. In the play Tybalt is a devil figure and is often angry and agressive. Much like fire Tybalt brings nothing but ruin, fire represents passion which Tybalt is full of.
He bears him like a portly gentleman,
and, to say the truth,Verona brags of him
To be virtuous and well-governed youth."
We will have vengance for it, fear thou not.
Then wep no more. I'll send to one in Mantua,
Where the same banished runagate doth live,
Shall give him such an unacustomed dram
That he shall soon keep Tybalt company."
The Capulet's symbol is a gold coin because they are very rich. Capulet is also superficial and cares deeply about appearances.
Juliet's symbol is a white dove. This is because throughout the play Romeo compares her to a dove which contributes to th the light and dark imagery of this play. The white dove symbolizes love, devotion and sacrifice. In the play Juliet is devoted to Romeo and even sacrifices her life to be with him.
If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help,
Do thou but call my resolution wise,
And with this knife I'll help it presently.
God joined my heart and Romeo's thou our hands."
There's no trust
No faith, no honesty in men. All perjured,
All forsworn, all naught, all dissemblers.
Ah, where's my man? Give me some aqua vitae.
Those griefs, these woes, these sorrows make me old.
Shame come to Romeo!"
The Nurse's, symbol is the hawk because in the play the Nurse acts as a messanger between Romeo and Juliet, delivering information to the other when they cannot go themselves. The hawk often symbolizes the messanger because it was believed to deliver messages to and from the spirit world much like the Nurse.
This is that banished haughty Montague
That murdered my love's cousin, which with grief
It is supposed the fair creature died,
And here is come to do some villainous shame
To the dead bodies. I will apprehend him."
Rosaline's symbol is a nun on account that the reason she could not be with Romeo is because she wanted to stay chaste.
Benvolio's symbol is a cross. Much like Jesus, Benvolio is constantly trying to break up fights and is seen as a peace keeper. "Part fools! Put up your swords. You know not what you do." (1.1.65-66) This phrase which is said by Benvolio is similar to what Jesus says to his disciples.
Then she hath sworn that she will still live chaste?
She hath, and in that sparing makes huge waste;
For beauty, starved with her severity,
Cuts beauty off from all posterity."
At this same ancient feast of Capulet's
Sups the fair Rosaline with whom thou so loves,
With all the admired beauties of Verona.
Go thither, and with unattained eye
Compare her face with some that I shall show,
And I will make thee think thy swan a crow."
Shakespeare uses Mercutio as a comedic charater, he is always joking about love and life in general. This is why the Joker is used as Mercutio's symbol.
Herbs are used to represent Friar Lawrence because when he is first introduced he is gathering plants and herbs. With the herbs Friar Lawrence creates the sleeping draught which he gives to Juliet.
O, then I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies' midwife, and comes
In shape no bigger than agate stone
On the forefinger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team a little atomi
Over men's noses as they lie asleep."
Wisely and slowly. They stumble that run fast"
The stag is the symbol for the Montagues. This is because they do not engage in fight unless they are provoked. This can be seen in the first scene where Tybalt is provoking Benvolio.
This is the Montague coat of arms.
O, where is Romeo? Ssaw you him today?
Right glad I am he was not at his fray"
Strong one-sided healthy relationship
Paris' symbol is a crown because he is the Prince's kinsman.
Strong mutual healthy relationship
Strong one sided mutual unhealthy relationship
Strong mutual unhealthy relationship
One-sided, do not or interact very little, healthy
The prince and Romeo do not interat in the play Romeo and Juliet nonetheless it is stated that he is opposed to the feud between the Montagues and Capulets
Mutual, do not interact or interact very little, healthy
One-sided, do not interact or interact very little, unhealthy
Mutual, do not interact or interact very little, unhealthy
O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear-"
If ever you disurb our streets again,
Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace."
