Unlike Romeo, instead of viewing this event a disastrous pool of never-ending shame, and self pity, she decides to think more rationally, and tries to figure out what to do next, and how she can be with Romeo again. This depicts that Juliet is very smart, and mature for her age. Throughout the play, the reader sees Romeos character as kind of a dramatic, foolish, and hopeless romantic. This is confirmed after reading his reactions to the news of his banishment. He doesn’t take the news very well to say the least, he is very emotional and suicidal. He is driven by emotion, ND states that he is “fortunes fool”.

By this, he is blaming the outcome of his actions on fate, and not taking responsibility for them whatsoever. He does this quite often throughout the entire play, especially when events don’t take place in his favor. All of this shows that he is far less mature than Juliet. 2- Compare and contrast Benevolent and Table. Benevolent and Table are two very interesting characters. However, they are basically exact opposites. Their dialogue shows what kind of person they are. Their definitions of peace are very different. Benevolent, is a peacemaker and means no harm “l do but keep the peace. UT up thy sword, or manage it to part these men with me. ” He is trying to convince others that fighting won’t resolve their issues. Table, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. He is always saying things to try and spark up a fight, and is very much against peace, so much that he says that he “Hates the word as he hates hell, all Montague, and Benevolent. ” Benevolent is much more positive than Table. The two characters’ actions also emphasize their differences in opinions. Benevolent takes part in actions for peace, such as stopping duels.

For example, t the beginning of the play, he tries to Stop a fight, by drawing his sword and saying “Part, fools! Put up your swords. You know not what you do. ” He knows that nothing good will come out of fighting. Venison’s stance on wanting peace does not change throughout the play, even near the end of it, when he is called upon to explain the deaths of Table, and Mercuric to the Prince, he views Romeos action of killing Table, as one of peace when things were getting out of hand. “Romeo, that spoke him fair, bid him bethink. How nice the quarrel was, and urged withal. Your high displeasure.

His admiration for Romeos action illustrates just how much he commends peace. However, Table is very different. Table is a fiery character, and makes it obvious that he isn’t willing to move past the feud anytime soon. He’s enraged when he finds out that Romeo has crashed the Capsules’ party, and tries to tell Lord Caplet to kick him out. When Caplet refuses, this causes him to become ever more angry, so he writes a letter to Romeo challenging him to a duel. Overall, the two characters display their opinions on peace through their actions very well, and they could not be more different.
