Tybalt

Dear Agony Aunt

I was recently at a family party and I saw a guy there who I absolutely hate! He is from a rival family to ours and so should never have been invited in the first place. I think he should pay the price for gate-crashing our party but my uncle wants me to keep the peace. Should I listen to what my uncle says or should I go with my instinct and act?

  1. Dear Tybalt,
    I believe that if you act you will disgrace your uncle and your family. I think you should listen to your uncle so that you can keep the peace between the two families. I also believe that if you act, Romeo and Juliet won’t continue to be friends and that could make the Montagues mad and they could revolt against the Capulets.

    I believe that you should keep the peace at this party, as is your purpose. If he is not causing trouble or harming someone, then what is the problem (other than what family he was from)? Do not start that which should not be stated.

  3. Dear Tybalt,
    Listen to what your uncle tells you, because he knows best. At times it’s appropriate to do what your instinct tells you, but in this case, it’s best to listen to your uncle. Listen to your uncle and keep the peace. It’s best for you, your rival, and the reputation of your kin.

    It is your uncle’s house and when he says leave it alone, then leave it alone. You can have your conflict with your enemy at a different time.

  5. Dear Tybalt,
    There are many questions to ponder, such as, will it help the situation or make it worse than it is. My opinion is that it will make it much worse. So you should probably take your uncles advice. It would be the wisest thing to do in your situation.

  6. Dear Tybalt,
    Listen to your uncle, because he is older and wiser than you. You are acting just out of anger. You’re not thinking about what you are doing.

  7. Think back to when you first met. Did you always hate Romeo? Or do you just hate the Capulets?

  8. What I would do is let it be. It is better to make peace with them. Think about why you guys are enemies and is it necessary? If you forgive you could possibly become better friends. It’s better to get along with everyone so life goes smoothly. Fighting just makes it complicated. Just move on. -KS

  9. Dear Tybalt
    Sometimes it is better to just keep calm. If he was being respectful at the party there is no need to pick a fight. Try to be the better person and just walk away.
    Sincerely: SS

  10. Dear Tybalt,
    You should listen to your Uncle’s advice. It is better to keep the peace, than to lash out on somebody. If you do this, it could lead to much conflict and end in a fight. Another thing I would recommend is trying to find ways to stay calm.

Introduction

I am Tybalt, a loyal Capulet and Juliet’s cousin. I hate the Montague family, especially the son of Lord Montague, Romeo. When I see him at the Capulet party I want to kill him, but my uncle stops me, fearing I will make a scene. The Prince of the City has warned our families against fighting, but I don’t listen to him and send Romeo a letter threatening him to duel. I go in search of Romeo, but instead find his friends Mercutio and Benvolio. Mercutio winds me up so I start fighting with him. Romeo tries to stop us, but I stab Mercutio. I run away from the scene but still have my sights set on killing Romeo.
