Act 3 Scene 5 is a very revealing scene It is in this scene that the characters show us their true feelings about one another and about themselves It is a very pivotal scene in that the nurse once Juliets confidante has now shown her true side I will examine in detail the relationships between the different characters Before we can do this we will need to take a look at preceding occasions in the play Even before the play has begun we are already told Two star-crossed lovers take their life This will later in the play give dramatic irony which is the audience knowing more about the play than the characters in the play So far in the play Romeo has been in lust with Rosaline who rejects him so much so that he breaks in to the Capulets party Romeo belongs to the Montague family and the Capulets and the Montagues have a deadly feud Tybalt spots him but lord Capulet prevents him from starting a fight Romeo meets Juliet and they both fall in love with each straight away Romeo sneaks back to her bedroom after the party and they both confess to each other their love They cannot tell their parents so they tell Friar Lawrence a neutral character and Juliets nurse who has looked after her from her childhood The friar marries them in secret but Tybalt accidentally kills Mercutio Romeo in a rage kills Tybalt The Prince arrives The Prince judges that Romeo should not be killed because he only did what the law required He was however to be banished This brings us now to Act 3 Scene 5 Romeo has just spent his last night in Verona with Juliet This scene is set entirely in Juliets bedroom in the Capulet mansion It is a strange place for Romeo to be in that herein lies his greatest hate and yet also his greatest love
