to mark that I am attentive to what I say; eight. Ah, that`s it. Ah, that`s it. Capulet reflects on his plans; He`s not laughing. Capulet sends his back-and-see send me invitations to the party. But the servant cannot read and seeks someone to help him. He comes across Romeo and Benvolio in the street and asks them to read the invitation without realizing that they are montagnus. After the servant leaves, Benvolio proposes to Romeo to attend the feast of capulets in disguise. He thinks it will be a chance for Romeo to meet other young women and forget about Rosaline. He kept him insoculateally unsan thinking of him, neglecting his memory. Although Capulet`s sudden change in attitude seems arbitrary – it does not explain why marriage must be so fast – the decision reflects his relentless and impitable nature, which undoubtedly fuelled the quarrel. Her language also suggests a change in parental concern for her daughter`s emotional maturity in taking into account her material comfort and social status.
Count Paris, a wealthy gentleman, visits Lord Capulet to ask for his daughter`s hand in the marriage. Capulet is uncertain because his daughter Julia is only a teenager and has not seen the change of fourteen years (Act 1 scene 2). Capulet agrees to organize a party where Paris can watch all the young women of Verona, including Julia. Capulet, like his wife, made sure his daughter married successfully. In this scene, he addresses in a striking way in Paris with a series of titles that emphasize the social superiority of Paris, ”Sir Paris”, ”noble Earl” and ”My Lord”. Paris is a relative of the prince and would give more wealth and status to the family of Capulet`s son-in-law. Capulet would never be able to understand, let alone approve, a marriage for Julia, based exclusively on love. Did you know that? In Shakespeare`s time, women were first considered the property of their father and then their husbands. Marriages have often been arranged for financial benefits or to insure allies. It was also customary for these arrangements to have been made very early in a young woman`s life.
For example, Capulet says that her daughter has not yet seen the change of fourteen years, suggesting that Julia is only thirteen years old. Capulet`s impulsive decision to speed up Julia`s marriage accelerates her brother`s conspiracy to fake Julia`s own death to avoid marriage. Capulet`s repeated references to certain days and times create a depressing sense of urgency as events rush to their tragic conclusion. He explains that Wednesday, as it is Monday night, is too early because of Tybalt`s death; So Thursday would be a good time for a wedding.
