Romeo and Julliet

How does Shakespeare show us that Juliet loses control over her life in act 3 scene 5 is this scene important in understanding the end of the play?

Juliet Capulet has just married Romeo Montague and on the night of their marriage it is discovered that Romeo has killed Tybalt a member of the Capulet family. Juliet’s parents and family are enraged and Romeo is banished from the kingdom.

Initially she tries to take control of her love life by continually asking Romeo not to go but then quickly changes to make him go. I will try to show how her mood swings affect her judgement and power of her life in this scene. Juliet is trying to control her love life because she does not want to marry Paris and if Juliet can’t correct her love life she can’t do anything. For a small bit she is in control then her father comes in and takes all the control away from her. Her father makes all the choices for her and she can’t do anything about it. At the end of the scene the only thing she has control over is life or death. This scene helps us understand why she kills her self. When her mum and dad reject’s her, the only thing she has is Romeo but when she finds out he is dead she has nothing so she kills her self.

Shakespeare further shows Juliet’s losing of control over her life when she and Romeo are in her bedroom the night before they have planned to be married.
Romeo and Juliet are in Juliet’s room because the night before it was their wedding; Juliet does not want Romeo to go. Show she says to Romeo the nightingale singing not the lark, because a night gale sings at night and the lark sings in the morning. Also he needs to be gone by the morning or he will be killed. “Are you going? It’s not morning yet. It was the nightingale, and not the lark, that you heard; nightly she sings on that pomegranate tree. Believe me, love, it was nightingale....
