Question: Tybalt calls Romeo a “villain.” Romeo responds by saying that he has reasons to love Tybalt. Analyze Tybalt’s character and discuss what Romeo’s words would do to Tybalt’s emotions.
Tybalt is a hot-tempered, impulsive, and proud young man who focuses heavily on traditional values and is attached to his family’s honor. He is highly offended when Romeo, a Montague, crashes the Capulet party and has strong emotional reactions to perceived slights against his family’s honor. Romeo’s response to Tybalt’s insult would be highly emotional to Tybalt. The fact that Romeo speaks of love towards him and his family would have greatly infuriated him. Tybalt would be shocked that Romeo would not only show any affection towards the Capulets, but speak of love. This would have disrupted Tybalt’s view of the Montagues as a hated enemy and would further fuel his anger towards Romeo. Therefore, Romeo’s response would have solidified Tybalt’s antagonism towards him by provoking a strong emotional reaction within Tybalt.
