Comment on the relationship between Juliet and her parents in the play Romeo and Juliet.
In the beginning of the play Juliet is the dutiful daughter. When asked whether she would like to marry Count Paris in Act I, Scene 3, she says she will take a look at Paris but will not do anything unless her parents give their permission. She says,
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.
Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!
I tell thee what: get thee to church o’ Thursday,
Or never after look me in the face.
Speak not; reply not; do not answer me.
Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word.
Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee.
Content thee, gentle coz. Let him alone.
He bears him like a portly gentleman,
And, to say truth, Verona brags of him
To be a virtuous and well-governed youth.
