On the night of Lammas Eve, she will be fourteen. Yes, she will. Indeed, I remember it well. It’s been eleven years since the earthquake. She stopped nursing on that day.
I'm just saying.My husband— he was a happy man—picked up the child. “Oh,” he said, “Did you fall on your face? You'll grow smarter. Won’t you, Jule.””
For heavan's sake , Nurse , please be quiet.
Okay, im done. But, all I'm saying is if i live to see the day you get married,all my wishes will come true.
Nurse, thats enough. Please let there be peace.
Well, marriage is exactly what we have to discuss.Tell me, my daughter Juliet, what is your attitude about getting married?
Juliet-It is an honor that I do not dream of. Lady Capulet-Well then, I’ll say this quickly: the valiant Paris wants you as his bride. Nurse-. Ah Paris, what a man ! He’s as perfect as if he were sculpted from wax.
The Nurse goes on and on about unnecessary things, when the main point is that Juliet will be fourteen soon. Everyone basically wants her to shutup.
Lady Capulet-Summertime in Verona has no flower as fine as him. Lady Capulet- Tonight you’ll see him at our feast. Study Paris’s face and find pleasure in his beauty. Many people think he’s handsome, and whoever becomes his bride will be just as admired. You would share all that he possesses, and by having him, you would lose nothing.
They then go on to talk about how they want Juliet to get married.
Nurse-Lose nothing? In fact, you’d get bigger. Men make women bigger by getting them pregnant. Lady Capulet-Give us a quick answer. Can you accept Paris’s love? Juliet-I’ll look at him and try to like him, at least if what I see is likable. But I won’t let myself fall for him.
Juliet tells them that she doesn't want to get married. Lady Capulet then asks Juliet her thoughts on Paris.
Peter-Madam, the guests are here, dinner is served. Everything’s out of control. I must go and serve the guests. Please, follow straight after me. Lady Capulet-Okay, here we come, Juliet the count is waiting for you. Nurse-Go, girl, look for a man who’ll give you happy nights and days.
Paris obviously has a good reputation, the way that the Nurse and Lady Capulet describe him. We also find out about the party.( A little bit of background history is included because men made the womens' reputations, in this time period ).
Lady Capulet asks Juliet if she wants to accept Paris. To add more, Juliet tells her that she will have to see.
Peter now enters the scene, and he tells everyone that the feast has started and they are being asked for/ talked about. They all then exit the scene.
