A Different Aspect Essay

837 words - 4 pages

Although they are the basis of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, these main characters are dull, undynamic, and do not specifically appeal to certain readers. Nurse could be considered as a more interesting character because she brings her wit, drama and insight into the plotline.
Nurse is an old woman who works for the Capulet family and who also happens to be Juliet’s mother figure. Nurse has a sizable personality and is as unpredictable as a hand in poker. She brings humor to this tale of star-crossed lovers and through the duration of the composition, it is shown that she enjoys teasing Juliet. A specific example of this is “Your love say, like an honest gentleman, and a courteous, and a kind, and a handsome, and, I warrant, a virtuous- Where is your mother?” (II. iv. 38-40). Nurse is trying to work and mold Juliet’s emotions just to see how she reacts. Her sarcastic nature is also emanated when she says, “Well, you have made a simple choice, you know not how to choose a man. Romeo? No, not he. [...] He is not the flower of courtesy, but, I’ll warrant him, as gentle as a lamb. Go thy ways, wench, serve God. What, have you dined at home?” (II. v. 38-39; 43-45). From the context in this scene, the audience can tell that Nurse is being sarcastic. In reality, she actually enjoys Romeo and thinks he is a suitable match for Juliet. Another instance where Nurse’s wit is presented is when she says, “Yes madam. Yet I cannot choose but to laugh to think it should leave crying and say ‘Ay’. And yet, I warrant, it had upon its brow a bump as big as a young cockrel’s stone; A perilous knock and it cried bitterly” (I. iii. 50-55). Before this quotation, Capulet cracks joke. Unlike Lady Capulet (who does not even crack a smile), Nurse finds him funny. This shows that Nurse an exciting side and she is not afraid to show her emotions.
Another reason Nurse is more interesting than Romeo and Juliet is because Nurse is dramatic. She bears life to the story through her reactions to events that occur. Nurse states, “And a’ speak anything against me, I’ll take him down, and a were rustier than he is, and twenty sucks Jacks, and if I cannot, I’ll find those that shall” (II. iv. 141-144). Nurse has her own...
