In the story "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" William Shakespeare has a different purpose or meaning he wants each specific character to display. The character I chose was Tybalt, a Capulet. He portrays hatred towards the Montagues. Though the Montagues are the Capulets greatest enemy, Tybalt just wants to duel it out every time he sees a Montague. Whether the person is walking down the street to selling goods in the marketplace. The fact is "he hates Montagues". .
At the beginning of the story a quarrel is going on between the Capulets and Montagues. Benvolio a Montague justs wants to keep peace between the families, or if not put up your swords. Tybalt replies .
(p.325) "What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee coward! ". Tybalt does not want to talk it over he wants to duel it out to the death. He hates the name Montague, as well as Montagues themselves.
The Capulets held a glorious party at which Romeo and some of his friends attend uninvited and in disguise. Tybalt recognizes Romeo as he is dancing. He notices he is staring at Juliet, his cousin. Tybalt disturbed by his presence, and also at the fact that he is gazing at Juliet. (p.341) "This, by his voice, should be a Montague. Fetch me my rapier, boy. What! Dares the slave. Come hither, covered with an ancient face, to fleer and scorn at our solemnity ." That gentleman is a Montague, go get me my weapon. How dare he come here with a strange mask and mock our seriousness. He is not welcomed here he is a Montague, an enemy! Capulet does not want any trouble, knowing that Romeo's family is his greatest enemy. He is behaving like a dignified gentleman. Do not insult him, it was Capulets will. Tybalt does not approve of this behavior. He thinks a villian of the families is not welcome and will not remain here in his presence. .
Another quarrel has broken out between the Capulets and Montagues.
