What are Juliet's inner conflicts in the play "Romeo and Juliet"?
2 Answers | Add Yours
Juliet, like adolescent girls of any time, feels conflicted about whether or not to obey her parents or follow her heart and love Romeo. She also wants to remain close to her confidant, the Nurse. However, Juliet has internal conflict about all of these people:
Romeo: he is her family's enemy, but she has experienced love at first sight with him
Mother and Father: She loves them and wants to obey them, but she does not want to marry Paris because of her love for Romeo
Nurse: She wants to trust in the Nurse and solicits her help in marrying Romeo, but once the Nurse tells Juliet to go ahead and marry Paris, Juliet loses trust in her.
