Juliet's Loss Of Innocence
Transcript of Juliet's Loss Of Innocence
Is Juliet pure?
At the beginning of the play Juliet is presented as being quiet and obedient, she is also portrayed as being pure. An example of this is when the nurse calls her " a lamb"(Act 1, Scene 3) A lamb is part of nature, and is also very young. A lamb acts very pure and innocent.
Does Juliet have good morals and does she show a lack of worldliness?
In Act 1, Scene 3 Juliet is moral to her mother. Showing her respect and curtsey. A quote to prove this is "Madam, i am here. What is your will?" In the same scene Juliet is presented as having a lack of knowledge on the world. When her mother talks about marriage she replies with "It is an honor that i do not dream off"
Is Juliet sin free?
The character of Juliet is not sin free. This is because when she marries Romeo, it is against her parents wishes. Also even though she goes to confession to clense her sins, she sins when she kisses Romeo and when she lies to her parents. An example of this is "Stay but a little, i will come again"
Is Juliet virginal?
At the beginning of act 3, scene 5, we find out Romeo and Juliet have been having a sexual relationship. This means Juliet is no longer a virgin and as a result she looses a lot of her innocence. An example showing us this is "Fair well. One kiss, and I'll descend"
Is Juliet Guilt Free?
There are several times when Juliet is guilty and guilt free throughout the play. An example of when she is guilt free is near the middle of the play, when she lies to the nurse and her parents. Without even giving the lie a seconded thought. An example showing this is "Ancient domnation! O most wicked fiend"
Is Juliet Blameless?
At the very end of the play Juliet looses the last of her innocence. Juliet is not blameless.Romeo kills himself believing that Juliet has died. She is to blame for the death of her lover Romeo. A example showing this is "O happy dagger"
Throughout the play Juliet looses her innocence. At the beginning of the play she is portrayed as being sweet and innocent. A example showing this is when she says "Madam, I am here, what is your will" This shows she is obedient towards her mother. But as the play proceeds her attitude towards people such as the nurse change. An example of this is "Ancient damnation! O most wicked fiend" This shows she is being rude and spiteful towards the nurse. Taking her frustration out on her motherly figure. In order for her loyalty to Romeo to grow, her relationship between her and family deteriorates. This causes her to loose the last of her innocence.
