Lord Capuletof the Capulet Family

The Life of a Capulet"Romeo and Juliet" by Prokofiev, Quarrel and Fight ScenesThe quarrel and fight scenes in the ballet "Romeo and Juliet" perfectly capture the beginning fight scene in the play. In this scene, Lord Capulet comes to the fight asking for his sword despite his old age. It introduces Lord Capulet's hate for the Montagues. He dislikes them so much that he would fight even though he needs a crutch. "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar is another song describing the fight scene. Everyone is doing their hardest to try and win the fight against the other family. They are taunting each other. For example, Lord Montague says to Lord Capulet, "Thou viillain Capulet!-Hold me not, let me go." (Act I, Scene I, Page 30, Line 72). "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea:"Fancy" by Iggy Azalea is a song that descirbes Capulet's wealth. In act I scene II a servant talks about Capulet being rich. He must be, to be able to hold a huge feast. "Masquerade" by Khachaturian:"Masquerade" is a suite by the composer Khachaturian that describes the dance held by Lord Capulet. This party was a masquerade party, something which allowed Romeo and his friends to get inside the party. Even after Capulet discovered that Romeo was their, he told Tybalt not to do anything and that Romeo, "'A bears him like a portly gentleman" (Act I, Scene IV, Page 76, Line 67). "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" by Neil DiamondThe song "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" by Neil Diamond describes the scene when Capulet decides to have Juliet and Paris marry. Capulet has finally decided that Juliet is old enough to marry. He thinks that marrying Paris will make her happy."Daughters" by John Mayer "Daughters" by John Mayer describes how fathers should be good to their daughters. Capulet thinks that he is doing the right thing by marrying Juliet and Paris, when, in reality, Juliet wants nothing to do with Paris. Capulet should stop and think about what is best for Juliet. "My Way Or The Highway" by Limp Bizkit"My Way or the Highway" by Limp Bizkit explains Capulet's anger at Juliet for not wanting to marry Paris. He tells her that either she marrys Paris, or she can hang, beg, starve, and die in the streets. He thinks that he is doing something wonderful for Juliet and she is just too spoiled to agree with it.

Lord Capulet is very rich

About Lord CapuletCapulet is the loving father of Juliet who just wants what is best for her. In the beginning of the play, Capulet says no to Paris' request to marry Juliet. Capulet explains that Paris should wait until Juliet is older. He is thinking of his own bad experience with marrying Lady Capulet when she was very young and does not want Juliet to have to go through it too. Later on in the play when Juliet is supposedly grieving over Tybalt's death, Capulet thinks that marrying her to Paris will help to make her happy. He was wrong, of course, and when Juliet said that she had no intention of marrying Paris, he became very angry at her. This prompted him to tell Juliet that if she didn't marry Paris he would disown her. He even said that his fingers itched, implying that he wanted to hit Juliet. Over all, Capulet really is a loving dad, and while he may be a bit misguided all he really wants is for Juliet to be happy.

Lord Capulet Quotes:"He shall be endur'd. What, goodman boy! I say he shall; go to! Am I the master here, or you? Go to! You'll not endure him! God shall mend my soul! You'll make a mutiny among my guests!" Page 78, Act I, Scene V, Lines 79-82. "Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o'Thursday, or never look me in the face. Speak not, reply not, do not answer me! My fingers itch. Wife, we scarce thought us blest that God had lent us but this only child; but I see this one is too much, and that we have a curse in having her. Out on her, hilding!" Page 214, Act III, Scene V, Lines 165-173."Despis'd, distressed, hated, martyr'd, kill'd! Uncomfortable time, why cam'st thou now to murder, murder our solemnity? O child! O child! My soul, and not my child! Dead art thou! Alack! My child is dead; and with my child my joys are buried." Page 256, Act IV, Scene V, lines 62-67.
