How does Shakespeare present and the audience react to the character of “Tybalt” in “Romeo and Juliet” focus on Shakespeare’s use of language staging?
Tybalt is a stubborn, immature, and demeaning character, but he plays a very small role insofar as time spent on the stage. His actions, however, cause a series of events that gives the plot movement. It is my interpretation, that Shakespeare gives Tybalt characteristics that make him most disagreeable to the audience; therefore, when he is killed by the likeable Romeo, the audience is not deeply affected by the death (even though the rest of the play is affected).
