Romeo and Juliet


refer to line 56-57.

BENVOLIO(pulling out his sword) Break it up, you fools. Put your swords away. You don’t know what you’re doing.

TYBALT What? You’ve pulled out your sword to fight with these worthless servants? Turn around, Benvolio, and look at the man who’s going to kill you. refer to line 59-60. BENVOLIO I’m only trying to keep the peace. Either put away your sword or use it to help me stop this fight. TYBALT What? You take out your sword and then talk about peace? I hate the word peace like I hate hell, all Montagues, and you. Let’s go at it, coward!   Our first introduction to Benvolio comes when he says these words.What do they reveal about his character?   refer to line 59-60Our first impression of Tybalt occurs in these lines.What do we learn about his character?   thankyou

Benvolio is a peace maker. He is a Montague and Romeo's friend. He attempts to stop the opening fight with the Capulet's in the market. Benvolio is juxtaposed by Tybalt who is a hot head and likes to instigate fights.
