Storyboard Text

  • SUSPENSE
  • A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life...
  • FOIL
  • What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word!
  • Draw, if you be men!
  • I do but keep the peace. Put up thy swords!
  • OXYMORON
  • O brawling love, O loving hate
  • Prologue - When the prologue says that people will die, suspense is established for the rest of the story as readers ponder on how it's going to happen and who is going to die.
  • EXTERNAL CONFLICT
  • Hence from Verona art thou banishèd.
  • Act 1, Scene 1 - Benvolio and Tybalt are an example of foil because they exemplify each other's traits. When the servants start fighting, Benvolio attempts to make peace, showing his peacemaker personality, while Tybalt's aggressiveness is shown when he orders them to continue.
  • FORESHADOW
  • I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins...
  • Act 1, Scene 1 - When Romeo is explaining his unrequited love to Benvolio, he uses various oxymorons such as "loving hate" and "heavy lightness" to express his conflicting emotions. These are examples of oxymorons because they contain contradicting terms in conjunction.
  • DRAMATIC IRONY
  • O me, O me!
  • Act 3 Scene 3 - Romeo experiences external conflict when Friar Lawrence tells him that the Prince has decided to banish him from Verona for killing Tybalt. This is a case of man vs society since Romeo is experiencing difficulties because of society.
  • Ha, banishment! Be merciful, say “death,”
  • Act 4, Scene 3 - When Juliet was pondering whether she should drink the potion or not, she said she worried something would happen. This is an example of foreshadowing because it indicates future events, in this case the events being the future tragedy that will befall Romeo and her.
  • Act 4 Scene 5 - Everyone (except Friar Lawrence) believed Juliet to be dead even though she wasn't. This shows dramatic irony because the readers know something that one or more of the characters don't know. 
  • My lady's dead!
