“I would the fool were married to her grave.” – Lady Capulet

On its own the quote seems to point to how she will not get married until she is dead.

The word ‘fool’ in this quote can be seen be seen in multiple ways. The first way is looking at it in the obvious way, a person who acts unwisely. It can also be seen as to trick or deceive someone. I personally think that it refers to a person who has chosen a bad decision.

As a whole the quote points to how Lady Capulet would rather Juliet die then not get married to Paris. This scene is where Juliet’s mother tells Juliet how she will be getting married to Paris on Thursday. Juliet however doesn’t want to do this so says that she would rather marry Romeo (who killed her cousin, but has married) then Paris.
