Transcript of Romeo And Juliet Character's
Act I: Old Montague defends his title against Capulet when a fight breaks loose in the beginning of Act I. Montague is very fond of his dignity.
Act III: Montague sticks up for his son Romeo when The Prince asks who should pay for Mercutio's blood. Montague cares about his son Romeo, and will try to protect him, even if it means arguing with the Prince.
Lady Montague -
Act 1: She holds Montague back when he tries to fight.
Lady Capulet doesn't want Montague to get physically hurt, she thinks he isn't fit to fight with Capulet.
Mercutio has a large imagination. He seems to have hate on those who are overly obsessive, which is why he tells his friend Romeo to view love more simply in Act I and II.
Act III: Mercutio calls Benvolio a hot Jack with imagery related to death foreshadowing his own death. He later talks back to Tybalt over Romeo, causing Tybalt to stab him when they go into a dual. Mercutio is a person who does not want to lose his dignity. He wants things "his way."
Romeo at first does not know what "true love" is. He later finds out what "true love" is when he finds Juliet, a person who loves him back.
Act I: Romeo is obsessed over Rosaline, even though he knows he can't be with her. Romeo doesn't know what love really is yet.
Act II: Romeo immediately gets over Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet as soon as Romeo meets Juliet at the dinner party. This is a different type of love for Romeo.
Act III: Romeo attempts to break up the fight between Tybalt and Mercutio. He wants to protect his friends from danger.
Romeo duels Tybalt and kills him after Tybalt stabs Mercutio. Similar to his father, Romeo is also fond of his dignity. When Romeo finds out that he is banished from Verona, he compares to be worse than death, for he is separated from Juliet. He is very close to stabbing himself until Friar Laurence gives him a long speech on how it can all work out. He is mainly doing this because of his love Juliet. This shows his love for Juliet has become very serious now that death is more reasonable than being away from Juliet.
Benvolio is Romeo's close cousin who tries to stop all forms of violence when possible. He tries to get Romeo's mind of Rosaline since he doesn't like to see Romeo in a bad mood. He tries to get Romeo off Rosaline still in Act II when Romeo has already met Juliet.
Benvolio is a person whose main goal is to help Romeo in any way possible.
Act III: Benvolio tries to stop the argument between Tybalt and Mercutio but doesn't succeed. He tells the truth of what happened to the Prince. Benvolio continues to stop violence in Act III, like Friar Laurence, he likes peace.
