No, definitely not banishment! Ill never see Juliet again! This cannot happen...
We shall banish this Montague Romeo. Far away from this place, never to be seen again!!
Should I side with my 3-hour husband or my cousin? Why would such kind man do such terrific thing?!
Romeo has killed your cousin Tybalt!! What are you going to do?
I wil not marry Paris!
I will disown you if you choose not to marry Paris!
Page 197-198, Lines 172, " Prince: And for that offence,immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hate's proceeding, My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a -bleeding;But I'll amerce you with so strong a fine That you shall all repent the loss of mine. I will be deaf to pleading and excuses; nor tears nor prayers shall purchase out abuses;Therefore use none. Let Romeo hence in haste,Else, when he's found, that hour is his last.Bear hence this body and attend our will.mercy but murders,pardoning those that kill."
In the scene above, it displays Romeo's external conflict with the prince as he is being banished. After the fight between Mercutio, Romeo, and Tybalt, it had left Mercutio and Tybalt killed. The prince was furious that people had just been killed on the streets of Verona even after he made the rule that anyone who fought would be exiled. However, the prince gave mercy to Romeo since he had been fighting for self-defense, and decided to banish him from the lands of Verona instead, this led to Romeo being extremely upset since he cannot be with Juliet. Since the prince banished him and caused Romeo more issues with others this would be a man v.s man external conflict that Romeo dealing with. He disagrees that he should be banished and believes that the Prince's ruling was unfair. The quote stated above also supports the conflict because it explains from the Prince's point of view to why Romeo is being banished. The prince's notion was since Romeo technically had been fighting for protection he doesn't deserve to be exiled but because he had killed someone he should suffer a great fine for his actions. Nonetheless, Romeo still faces the external conflict of being banished by the Prince and having to leave Juliet and his home.
Page 180&182, Line 101-131, “ Juliet- Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband? Ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name, When I, thy three-hours wife, have mangled it? … And Tybalt’s dead that would have slain… ‘Tybalt is dead, and Romeo - banished’ … that one word ‘banished’ hath slain ten thousand Tybalt.”
In the play Romeo and Juliet, it displays many conflicts. An internal conflict is seen in the scene above, showing Juliet's internal conflict towards the killing of her cousin. She doesn't know whether to side with her husband Romeo or with her family side. She is contemplating what has happened between the fight with Tybalt and Romeo. This shows an internal conflict because she doesn't know whether it would be right to take the side of her new husband or fight for the fate of her cousin Tybalt. The quote stated above also supports this because it shows a monologue between Juliet's thoughts towards the situation. Furthermore, the nurse also makes comments to Juliet which continues to influence her thoughts towards her family and her thoughts towards Romeo. This demonstrates an internal conflict that is occurring in Juliet's character.
Page 212, line 150-161, “ Juliet- Not proud but thankful that you have. Proud can I never be of what I hate; But thankful even for hate that is meant, love. Capulet: How, how, how? Chopped -logic? What is this? ’Proud,’ and ‘I thank you not’; And yet ‘not proud. ’Mistress minion, you, Thank me no thankings, nor proud me no proud, But fettle your fine joints ‘ gainst Thursday next, To go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church, Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither. Out you green-sickness carrion! out you baggage! you tallow-face.”
In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, many conflicts are seen throughout the play. In this scenario, it displays an external conflict between Juliet and her parents. (Man v.s. man) It all begins when Lady Capulet brings up her upcoming wedding day. On this day Lady Capulet and Lord Capulet want Juliet to marry Paris. However, Juliet is already married and does not believe Paris will make her a happy bride so she declines to marry Paris. This leads to Lord Capulet getting angry at Juliets decisions saying if she doesn't marry Paris, he will disown her and let her die. Not only is Lord Capulet unhappy with Juliet's decision, but Lady Capulet is also in disbelief and surprised in Juliet's decisions. This portrays an external conflict because it shows a problem within the Capulet family. (Juliet, Lady Capulet, and Lord Capulet) If Juliet chooses not to marry Paris, Lord Capulet will disown her and let her hang to death. This pretty much forces Juliet to marry Paris, whom she does not want to marry since she wants to stay with Romeo but her family disapproves of.
