Transcript of Romeo And Juliet Character Analysis Project
Benvolio the Dove
Lord Capulet the Vulture
Friar the Beaver
Juliet the House Cat
Lady Capulet the Cow
Mercutio the Racing Horse
Romeo the Puppy
Tybalt the Crocodile
Puppy: Irrational and wimpy
Romeo is completely irrational when he first sees Juilet because he forgets about Roasline and thinks he has found his "true love" in Juliet (Shakespeare 1, 4, 44-53).
Soon after Mercutio is killed, Romeo acts irrational again by wanting to kill Tybalt, he says, "Either thou, or I, or both, must go with him," which could end up in him dying as well (Shakespeare 3, 1, 129).
Romeo is very wimpy throughout the play by saying that he would rather die than face several of his problems, however, he seems to be more of a wimp when faced with the decision to die since Juliet was 'dead' and he asks an apothecary to give him "a dram of poison" (Shakespeare 5, 1, 60).

Naïve about world around her

In act 3, scene 1, lines 158-175, Benvolio stretches the truth to be loyal to his friend, Romeo.
Cow: Cold, uncaring, distant
Lady Capulet said,"Romeo slew Tybalt, Romeo must not live," when she figured out who killed Tybalt and was very cold towards Romeo when she said that he should die (Shakespeare 3, 1, 181).
Lady Capulet is ignorant and says,"Shall happily make thee there a joyful bride," when she it telling Juliet how much happier she will be to marry Paris because Lady Capulet doesn't see that Juliet does not love Paris at all (Shakespeare 3, 5, 115).

In act 3, scene 3, line 71, the Friar is cautious and tells Romeo to hide so he won't get caught and sentenced to death.
Lion: Immature and overconfident
Paris is immature and doesn't seem to realize the outcome of marrying Juliet when he says, "I would that Thursday were tomorrow," or in other words, Paris wishes he could marry Juliet sooner (Shakespeare 3, 4, 29).
Paris is overly confident much like a chimpanzee because, when he runs into Juliet he says, "Do not deny to him that you love me," and seems to think that Juliet loves him when she just said that she would rather not be married to him (Shakespeare 4, 1, 24).
Paris is overconfident when he incounters Romeo at Juliet's grave and he wants to die protectiing Juliet's grave from Tybalts murderer because Romeo is determined to get past Paris whether he kills him or not (Shakespeare 3, 5, 49-57).
Rat: Selfish, blunt, and opportunistic
The nurse is selfish by saying that she doesn't like Romeo and blames him for Tybalt's death and act two faced about likeing or disliking Romeo (Shakespeare 3, 2, 85-89).
When the Nurse arrives from seeing Romeo, she delays telling Juliet the plan by saying she is,"tired and old," to give Juliet the time to worry (Shakespeare 2, 4, 25-26).
When the Nurse is telling Juliet the plan for Romeo to come visit her, she is very blunt and straight to the point (Shakespeare 2, 5, 68-77 ).
Crocodile: Violent and selfish
At the beginning of the play, Tybalt is
violent and wants to fight with Benevolio when the two see each other and he starts the fight by saying, "Have at thee, coward!" (Shakespeare 1, 1, 72).
After Romeo an Juliet marry in secret, Tybalt is selfish by being rude to Romeo by saying, " thou art a villain," when Romeo tries to keep peace between Mercutio and Tybalt (Shakespeare 3, 1, 61).
During the party at the Capulet's, Tybalt is selfish by saying, "Uncle, this is a Montague, our foe," to his uncle and acting like he is in charge of who can or can not enter the party (Shakespeare 1, 5, 61).
