Please can someone help me with this 15 mark extract question. The question is “look at how juliet and the nurse speak and behave here. How do you think an audience might respond to this part of the play? Refer closely to the details in the extract to support your answer”

NURSE
Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished,69
Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.70
JULIET
O God, did Romeo’s hand shed Tybalt’s blood?71
NURSE
It did, it did, alas the day, it did!72
JULIET
O serpent heart, hid with a flow’ring face!73
Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave?74
Beautiful tyrant! Fiend angelical!75
Dove-feather’d raven! Wolvish ravening lamb!76
Despised substance of divinest show!77
Just opposite to what thou justly seem’st,78
A damned saint, an honorable villain!79
O nature, what hadst thou to do in hell80
When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend81
In mortal paradise of such sweet flesh?82
Was ever book containing such vile matter83
So fairly bound? O that deceit should dwell84
In such a gorgeous palace!85

NURSE
There’s no trust,
No faith, no honesty in men, all perjur’d,86
All forsworn, all naught, all dissemblers.87
Ah, where’s my man? Give me some aqua-vitae;88
These griefs, these woes, these sorrows make me old.89
Shame come to Romeo!90

JULIET
Blister’d be thy tongue
For such a wish! He was not born to shame:91
Upon his brow shame is asham’d to sit;92
For ’tis a throne where honor may be crown’d93
Sole monarch of the universal earth.94
O, what a beast was I to chide at him!95
NURSE
Will you speak well of him that kill’d your cousin?96
JULIET
Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?
