One example of this is when Lady Capulet is trying to comfort Juliet, who is presumably upset over Tybalt’s death. Juliet is actually more distraught over Romeo’s banishment, but she pretends to be angry at Romeo. Juliet tells her mother, “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied / With Romeo till I behold him—dead— / Is my poor heart, so for a kinsman vexed” (Shakespeare ). Lady Capulet will interpret this to mean that Juliet wants to behold Romeo dead. However, the audience knows that Juliet actually means her heart is dead. Lady Capulet thinks the kinsman who is vexed is Tybalt, whereas Juliet is actually referring to Romeo. Juliet cleverly employs ambiguous speech to keep her love for Romeo secret yet true.
