Juliet (Measure for Measure) Apparently Shakespeare liked the name Juliet as much as we do. He used this beautiful name again for a minor character in his 1603 play “Measure for Measure”. Juliet is the medieval version of what we might call a Baby Mama today. She’s Claudio’s baby mama meaning he and Juliet – gasp – fornicated outside of their marriage. You may not think this is any big deal, but we’re talking about the early 17th century here when such activity was against the law and so Angelo sentences Claudio to death while Juliet is sent away to prison where she’ll eventually have her baby. As a minor character, we don’t see much of her (like we do of Isabella and Mariana), but she reappears in the final scene when the Duke of Vienna announces that she and Claudio can be together. At least this Juliet got her “happily ever after”.
Juliet Capulet (Romeo and Juliet) Juliet Capulet is half of the ill-fated couple in Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, probably written between 1591 and 1595. At the play’s beginning, Juliet is a young, rather docile girl (not quite fourteen), obedient and ready to consider her parents’ choice for a suitor, yet demonstrating just a touch of reserved rebellion under the surface. After she meets and falls in love with Romeo, her every action seems to augur the woman she would have become if fate had treated her differently. Once equipped with the moral backbone that her love for Romeo gives her, there is no stopping this firebrand. She manages to defy the strictures of the generations-old feud between the Capulets and the Montagues, to declare her love for Romeo, to marry him and consummate the vows and, ultimately, to make the noblest sacrifice of all for him – her death. And no pretty poisoning death for her – she impales herself upon a dagger. All of this over the course of a few days! It is not that we would wish such a fate upon any fair maidens of thirteen of our acquaintance, but – really – could anyone you know fill the bill?
