Storyboard Text

  • (4.5.9)
  • I must needs wake her.--Madam, madam, madam!
  • (4.1.45-46)
  • O, shut the door! And when thou hast done so, Come weep with me, past hope, past cure, past help.
  • (4.5.31-32)
  • Death, that hath ta'en her hence to make me wail, Ties up my tongue and will not let me speak!
  • Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, O'ercovered quite with dead men's rattling bones, with reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls; Or bid me go into a new-made grave And hide me with a dead man in his shroud-.
  • This is a quote from the Nurse and I will explain the meaning behind it. This occurs when she goes to wake up Juliet the day she is supposed to marry Paris, the person Juliet doesn't want to marry. The Nurse knows that she is already secretly married to Romeo, the man of her dreams. The Nurse went into the room so happy and couldn't wait to see Juliet because she couldn't wait for the wedding. Immediately things went way down hill when she found Juliet dead in her room and she had no idea what to do.
  • (4.1.82-86)
  • This quote helps to show Juliet's tone when she visits Friar Lawrence . She claims she will do anything including suicide to get out of this marriage, showing how desperate she is and telling us she will do anything to become a pure wife to Romeo. This quote proves to show that Juliet knows this has gone way to far already and she knows she can't do anything about it which is why she is begging Friar Lawrence to help her. Above shows Friar Lawrence before he thinks of his brilliant plan of faking death.
  • (4.1.9-12)
  • This scene manages to incorporate the personification that Capulet uses with death. This quote is personification because death can not tie things up and it can not make people stop speaking like people can. This adds to the story showing that Capulet has no idea what he is supposed to do about Juliet's death. It directly shows that Capulet is not sure what to do next by saying that he can't speak because death is tying up his tongue.
  • (4.1.102-104)
  • Like death when he shuts up the day of life. Each part, deprived of supple government, Shall, stiff, and stark and cold, appear like death.
  • Some words in this quote really make a clear imagine in my head of what Juliet is thinking about and saying that she would rather do crazy things like get buried in a tomb than marry Paris. Shakespeare used words like charnel house which is where bones and corpses are piled and shroud which is the cloth wrapped around a dead body to really describe the scene. These words play a role in describing the setting of what Juliet describes a tomb as to help the readers imagine what it may look like.
  • I think I would blame all of these problems on Capulet. I would do this because as shown above Capulet just keeps going behind Juliet's back and planning things like the marriage without Juliet getting any say on the topic. Capulet is pretty much forcing her to get married in a rush and Juliet doesn't want to but if she doesn't he claims he will disown her. In this picture above Paris is telling Friar Lawrence that they are getting married in a rush so it will bring happiness to Juliet at this sad time of her cousin's death.
  • Now, sir, her father counts it dangerous That she do give her sorrow so much sway, And in his wisdom hastes our marriage To stop the inundation of her tears--.
  • The drama term that I noticed in this act is dramatic irony. Dramatic irony occurs because the audience knows that Juliet is not actually dead. The characters like the Nurse, Capulet, Paris, and Lady Capulet all think that Juliet is actually dead and are beginning to turn her wedding into a funeral. We know that Juliet is faking her death by drinking the vial that Friar Lawrence gave her to trick them so she can get out of the marriage with Paris.
