Characterization of Bevolio

The most relatable character in Romeo and Juliet.
Benvolio is Romeo's best friend throughout the play, offering good advise and a clear mind.

Even from the beginning of Romeo and Juliet Benvolio acts as a comforting hand to the love struck and sometimes heart broken Romeo.

"What sadness lengthens Romeo's hours?"

Benvolio Steps In

Benvolio not only tries to help Romeo, but also tries to break up the fight in the first scene because he is the only one who is not blinded by hatred.

"Part fools, put up thy swords"

Benvolio just wants to have fun, and go to the party as he shows when he complains about Marcutio talking so much:

"This wind, you talk of, blows us from ourselves; Supper is done, and we shall come too late."
