Lady Capulet

Dear Agony Aunt

My poor nephew has been brutally murdered by a boy from a vicious family. He should have been put to death for what he has done but instead he has run away from the city. It is a very soft punishment in my opinion so what should I do to get my nephew the justice he deserves?

  1. Dear Lady Montague
    I think you should learn to forgive because revenge will not bring your nephew back.
    From Shakespeare's Globe

Introduction

I am Lady Capulet, the wife of Lord Capulet and the mother of Juliet. I am keen for my daughter to be married despite her doubts. I offer a nobleman, Paris, to her as a suitor and she agrees to meet with him at our party. My nephew, Tybalt, is murdered by the nasty Montague boy, Romeo, and our family is suddenly in a state of mourning. I believe Romeo should be put to death for what he has done, but the Prince only banishes him. Juliet has been in a constant state of grief for her cousin and refuses to consider the marriage to Paris. My husband threatens to disown her if she does not obey him and I stand by his rule. Eventually, Juliet reconsiders and agrees to marry Paris. Her father and I prepare for her upcoming nuptials, but on the day of the wedding our world is torn apart. The Nurse finds our daughter dead in her bed and so we are forced to prepare for a funeral rather than a marriage.
