How does conflict reveal the message of the play?

Conflict is conveyed all through out the play mostly expressed by physical violence but also internal struggles.  It begins in the very start of the play, the prologue where it communicates their families are in equal state in wealth “two households both alike in dignity” as well as revealing their long lived grudge. Emotion is the conveyed as one of the main ideas.

Paragraph 1: “What’s in a name? Thats which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shows conflict because of their feud between the two families which is blocking their relationship which they have to keep secret.

Paragraph 2:  “Deny thy father and refuse thy name” This is conveying that if Juliet is not allowed to marry the love of her life, a Montague then this will cause conflict between her and her father.

Paragraph 3:  “That God had lent us but this only child,
But now I see this one is one too much, And that we have a curse in having her. Out on her, hilding!” This is conflict between Juliet and her father about if she doesn’t marry Paris then he is kicking her out of the house.

Paragraph 4: “But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin?
That villain cousin would have killed my husband.” Juliet is having conflict with herself as she doesn’t know what to think about who is in thw wring from the fight.
