Shakespeares character Juliet

Paragraph I (Juliet)

Romeo and Juliet both grew up in haughty, first class households, where they were provided
with everything they wanted and needed, not to mention a broad education including proper
etiquettes. Juliet is a very courageous and loyal person to Romeo, for she not only stands
up to her parents, but to systematic way of life that has existed for hundreds of years
(arranged marriages). She's tells her mother immediately at the ball that she will only
meet Paris because she wants her to and not because she is voluntarily interested in him:

I'll look to like, if looking liking move.
But no more deep will I endart mine eye
Than your consent gives strength to make it fly. (1,iii,98-100)
Romeo on the other hand shows courage, but not the same kind. He has a loving relationship
with his father, and his courage is shown by him perusing his love for Juliet, knowing the
consequences of associating with a Capulet. Since men could marry whoever they wanted, I
wouldn't call him courageous. Juliet also qualifies as devoted, after the nurse tells her
that she should just go ahead and marry Paris, she says she will kill herself if she is
forced to marry Paris. She would rather take her own life than to have a life without
Romeo:

Ancient damnation! Oh, most wicked fiend!

    Film Noir Forty years after Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits." Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly
  • Dominican music and film
    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

  • Americanization
    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
