Storyboard Text

  • "I needs must wake her. Madam, madam, madam"
  • (4.5.9)
  • (4.1.59)
  • "Or my true heart with treacherous revolt Turn to another, this shall slay them both."
  • (4.5.38)
  • "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded."
  • The meaning of this quote is that the nurse knows she must wake up Juliet, but she cannot. At first when she cannot wake Juliet up, she is optimistic and thinks that Juliet is just playing and not waking up on purpose. The nurse then realizes that Juliet is dead, and panics.
  • (4.1.82)
  • "Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, 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"
  • Juliets tone when she meets the friar is very determined. She states that she will kill herself if she is forced to marry Paris, which the quote above expresses. Some words that emphasize her desperation are "tell me not", "with this knife" and "this bloody knife". This emphasizes her desperation because she keeps bringing up the knife that she will use to kill herself.
  • (1.5.91)
  • "If I do profane with my unworthiest hand this unholy shrine, the gentle sin is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough tough with a tender kiss"
  • Lord Capulet personifies death by saying, "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded.". He is saying that death touched his family and that it took his daughter. He compares death to Juliet's possible husband, because it took her like her future lover would.
  • (4.5.99)
  • "(sings) Then music with her silver sound with speedy help doth lend redress."
  • Juliet is using imagery to describe how her tomb could look like if she does die. She uses words to describe this by saying "reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls". This means that she will be with wet, smelly flesh and skulls without jawbones. As you can see, her imagery is a bit extreme, but this is how she imagines her tomb.
  • I blame Romeo for all of the events that have occured. If he did not talk to Juliet, or go to her balcony the night of the party, none of this would have happened. He "fell in love at first sight", and got Juliet to think that she was in love too. Then they got married, so Juliet cannot listen to her father and marry Paris because of their religion. If Romeo had never come along, Juliet's life would have been normal and no one would end up dead.
  • The dramatic term that I noticed in Act 4 is prose. At the end of scene 5, Peter the servant is talking to musicians (who also speak in prose). The significance of prose is to differentiate between the "important people", like Lord Capulet, Romeo, and Juliet, and the servants, who do speak in prose.
