7m 48s

Juliet is reconciled to her father and takes the friar’s drug. Key questions considered include: What is revealed about Lord Capulet and his attitudes in this scene? What are Juliet’s feelings as she takes the potion? We provide a scene summary and analyse Juliet’s conversation with her father in scene ii and her soliloquy in scene iii, especially her fears of madness at the end of this speech.
