What bold offer does Capulet make to Paris?

Hmm. I'm not sure the offer is all that bold; it seems rather melancholy to me. In any case, Paris asks for Juliet's hand in marriage. Capulet offers Juliet to him, even though he has said says she's too young and his last living hope (and even though she mourns for Tybalt, who was recently killed).
