Man Vs. Self In this quote we see Juliet as incredibly erratic as she goes from being mad at Romeo to pledging her loyalty to him. This displays the conflict man vs self because it shows Juliet's inner feud. Juliet's beloved Romeo has just killed her dear cousin Tybalt, which initially fueled her with rage. Soon she realizes that Romeo is her husband, to whom she must remain eternally loyal to. Juliet lies in between two feuding sides, each important to her. This creates conflict inside Juliet because she doesn't know whose side to pick. This issue helps reveal the theme of young love being naive because it shows how her young love has suddenly thrust her right in between the greatest Veronian conflict of the 12th century.
A plague o' both your houses!--Zounds, a dog, a rat, amouse, a cat, to scratch a man to death! a braggart, a rogue, a villain, that fights by the book of arithmetic!--Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm. Act 3,Scene 1, Line 95
Men VS. Society This quote displays the despair Juliet and Romeo face, knowing that their love will never be socially accepted or approved of by their families. Juliet questions the importance of a name in society and the weight and meaning it carries. what a name really is and wished she could change his name so they could be happy. Based on the quote, the reader can now tell the conflict here is Man vs Society or Romeo and Juliet against society. As rival families, their families hate each other and therefore, they shouldn't be allowed to be together. However, they have both fallen deeply in love and want to be together. This conflict moves the plot along, leading to important events like Romeo and Juliet getting married and eventually their deaths.
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?--But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin?That villain cousin would have kill'd my husband:Back, foolish tears, back to your native spring; Act 3, Scene 2, Line 101
