Juliet Personality Essay Intro

Writing the first draft

Once you have planned your answer, you can start to write the first draft. Remember, this is coursework, so you might be able to write a number of drafts, making each one better as you develop your answer. However, many people worry about starting their answer - they are not sure where to start - so they include a lot of information which is not asked for or needed. For instance, you might know a lot about the background to the play or Shakespeare's life, but is it really relevant? Let's compare two ways of starting to answer the question: 'What is the role of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet?'

Version one

Romeo and Juliet is a play by Shakespeare. It is set in Verona, Italy, and is about two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, who are constantly feuding, and what happens when Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, fall in love. The play was probably first performed at the Globe Theatre in London in 1595. The theatre was very different then because no females were allowed to act, so all of the female roles, including Juliet, were played by males.

At first sight this looks OK. It is all correct and about Romeo and Juliet. However, the person marking the essay already knows the play and all the background details, and this introduction could be for any title. In fact, most markers would not give any marks so far, because nothing about the question has been given. We think there is a much better way to start your essay or talk, so let's look at version two.

First of all, in my opinion the Lady Capulet wasn’t a successful mom at all. A major thing about her was that she had a different view of love. She believed that the tradition of arranged marriage was correct, as in that marriage should be arrange by parents. After Romeo climbed out of the window, Lady Capulet came in and responds, "Talk not to me, for I'll not say a word / Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee" (3.5.15). The words that the Lady Capulet said were just horribly good, it really expressed how she is such an irresponsible mother. Because she said“ ...for I have done with thee…” which mean she is done with this situation, she quit the argument, and leave Juliet alone. As usual Juliet immediately refused her mother. She showed she only love Romeo and no one else. It can be a minor reason why she committed suicide because she got pressure from her family, while she truly loved Romeo. Did Lady Capulet really been more of a mother?
