Romeo and Juliet Act 3, Scene 4 Summary

  • Paris is still hanging around hoping he can marry Juliet.
  • Unfortunately, Juliet's still way depressed about Tybalt/ Romeo.
  • Juliet's grief for Tybalt seemed so extreme to her father that he's changed his mind about waiting a few years before she is married. What better way to cheer her up than to force her into a marriage with a man she's just not that into?
  • Figuring that there's no way Juliet could refuse a great guy like Paris, Lord Capulet decides to go full speed ahead. How about marrying her next week? he asks Paris.
  • Sure!
