    • Lady Capulet and Juliet
      • formal and not close
      • Juliet - polite and obedient to mother
        • Follow mother's want for Juliet to marry Paris the way Lady Capulet did w/out love
          • "But no more deep will I endart mine eye /  Then your consent gives strenght to fly" Juliet
            • "eye" - appearance

        • Changes when she wants to marry Romeo
          • True love of Juliet and Romeo for potential family vs. Juliet's love for her existing Capulet family
          • Irony

      • Nurse - makes very crude humour
        • Although not biological family - close to Capulets
          • close to Juliet
            • more of a motherly figure to Juliet
              • Raised her up
        • "Women grow by men"
          • Power - women is not worthy without men
          • Pregnancy - family

            • Book imagery
