  • Nurse in Romeo and Juliet
    Nurse in Romeo and Juliet by enotes

    The role of Juliet's Nurse is important to understanding the complexity of Romeo and Juliet. The Nurse has many different roles within the play. She is not only mother figure to Juliet, but also the young woman's friend. And although she does not know it, the Nurse acts as a foil. From her tenderness with her charge, to her willingness to listen to Juliet's angst, to her intervention in the love affair, it can be argued that without the Nurse, this tragedy may not have occurred. The Nurse interacts with virtually every character in the play: Juliet, her parents, Tybalt, Paris, and especially Friar Laurence. Take our exclusive quiz on the role of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet to help you comprehend this important character.

  • Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet
    Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet by enotes

    Fathers...Ugh. Am I right? Lord Capulet wants the best for his little girl and thinks he has found just the right match for her in a husband. But telling a young teenager what to do, apparently, has a long history of backfiring. Shakespeare's Lord Capulet is an interesting mixture of protection and pressure, bravado and foolishness. His leadership is flawed, his parenting questionable, and his role in the forthcoming tragedy undeniable. Take eNotes' exclusive quiz on the role of Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet to help you comprehend this important character.

  • Prince of Verona in Romeo and Juliet
    Prince of Verona in Romeo and Juliet by enotes

    If your idea of a prince was formed largely by the magic of Disney, Shakespeare would like to have a word with you. The Prince of Verona's duties seem to be more in line with keeping squabbling children from coming to blows than they are looking for that perfect princess. His subjects are unruly and prone to violence; his threats are taken seriously only for a short time. Although the character of the Prince of Verona does not play a large role in the tragedy, his lack of effective leadership is shown to be endemic. How well do you understand how this character fits within the framework of the play? Take our exclusive, interactive quiz to The Prince of Verona in Romeo and Juliet and find out!

    Mercutio is kind of like that buddy we all have who is amusing so we keep him around even though he's a troublemaker. That this character is volatile should not be much of a surprise to the careful reader. As his name suggests, Mercutio has a temper that reacts like the element mercury, a substance that heats and cools quickly. As the tragedy unfolds, one of the first unravelings comes from Mercutio's hand. Without his rash actions, things may have turned out very differently.
