TybaltTybalt Capulets and the Montagues, he also

                                                                            TybaltTybalt in “Romeo and Juliet” is Juliet’s cousin on her mother’s side. Although Tybalt  is loyal beyond words and honours the family rivalry  between the Capulets and the Montagues, he also proves to be a tough, cocky and aggressive character who is always looking for a fight.Firstly, Tybalt is easily angered. For example, once he spots Romeo at the party he says: “This, by his voice, should be a Montague. Fetch me my rapier, boy. What, dares the slave Come hither, covered with an antic face,To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, To strike him dead I hold it not a sin.” (1.5 pg.3 ). This quote shows that Tybalt has no fear against Romeo and his willingness to kill him at the party. Secondly, Romeo denies being his enemy since he is now married to Juliet, but Tybalt rejects Romeo and challenges him to fight, “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries That thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw.” (3.1pg.3). This quote makes it evident that Tybalt is aggressive toward Romeo. “What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, coward!” (1.1pg.5). We can easily tell how hateful Tybalt is from this quote.Finally, Capulet (who is Tybalt’s uncle) saw Tybalt acting weirdly,”He shall be endured. What, goodman boy! I say, he shall. Go to. Am I the master here, or you? Go to. You’ll not endure him! God shall mend my soul,You’ll make a mutiny among my guests. You will set cock-a-hoop. You’ll be the man…why,uncle,tis a shame.” ( 1.5pg.4). We can tell that Tybalt  does not want to lose his pride from his response to his uncle in this quote.In conclusion, Tybalt is an impulsive and aggressive character from the play Romeo and Juliet . Tybalt comes off as a stubborn and ruthless as he tries to protect the honour of his family and shows his hate for the Montagues. Tybalt puts his family first, but sometimes he can let his temper get the best of him. Overall, I think Tybalt is a despicable character.
