Examine the dramatic impact of Act 3 Scene 5 and discuss its importance to the play as a whole

In Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet, Act 3 Scene 5 is seen as one of the most important and dramatic scene in the play. It introduces a new side to characters and new feelings. It is set in Juliet's room after Romeo has been banished from Verona and he joins Juliet on their wedding night. During this scene, Romeo leaves Juliet for Mantua after spending the night together; Juliet is informed on the arrangement for her to marry Paris, and as the scene progresses, Juliet's family, one by one, turn their back on her. This scene would potentially make the audience take a different view on all the characters; see a different side to them. For example, learn more about family relationships when Shakespeare wrote this play.

The contrast between the beginning and end of the scene is significant. To start of, the audience sees Juliet with plenty of support and help around her whenever she has trouble. This shows the audience that at the current moment in the play, apart from Romeo being banished from Verona, the mood is calm and with Romeo still present and with Juliet, they are happy. There is an imagery of sky and the heavens, similar to Act 2 Scene 2. After Romeo's departure, a new imagery is introduced to the audience, an imagery of death from Juliet's language. Also, after Romeo's departure, her plea's from fortune, which is seen as a person, to bring Romeo back to her. At the end of the seen, the contrast is easily seen. Juliet is left isolated, lonely and lost her support within a matter of minutes. It is the structural contrast which is seen. The beginning with the initial, brief happiness compared to the ending with Juliet in despair and lost all control over the situation.

Juliet's relationship with her parents has changed dramatically from her first performance. Early in the play, she listened to what her parents told her and would not disobey them. This showed her loyalty to her family and how the audience observed and realised that the parents, mainly the father, were in charge. In Act 3 Scene 5, she hides her true feelings for Romeo. She uses a double meaning within her language. When talking to her mother, she says "Yet let me weep for such a feeling loss." Lady Capulet thinks that she talking about the loss of Tybalt, her cousin, whereas she is actually referring to the loss of her love one, Romeo. This shows that throughout the play, she has grown to be mature after being experienced to events such as death, love and secrets. This has a dramatic effect because the audience will possibly be able to guess at what will occur in the future. Also, she is willing anything to be with Romeo by telling her mother she will take some poison and give it to Romeo. This also gives an indication of future...
