Storyboard Text

  • Hold, daughter. I do spy a kind of hope, Which craves as desperate an execution As that is desperate which we would prevent. (4.1.69-71) 
  • The tone in this scene is really strong- Juliet is threatening to kill herself because she can't be with Romeo 
  • God joined my heart and Romeo's, thou our hands. And ere this hand, by thee to Romeo sealed, Shall be the label to another deed" (4.1.56-59) 
  • "Where I have learned me to repent the sin Of disobedient opposition To you and your behests, and em enjoined By holy Lawrence to fall prostrate here To beg your pardon. Pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ever ruled by you. (4.2.18-24)
  • Here Capulet talks about how excited  he is that she finally came to her senses and how they'll move the wedding up to tomorrow 
  • In this scene Juliet has a soloquy about how she's terrifed that the plan with Friar won't work, and that he might actually kill her because she's been causing so many proplems. 
  • In this scene there is a lot of dramatic irony due to the audience knowing something that the characters don't. (That Juliet is "dead") Also in this scene, everybody is getting ready for the wedding and trying to pull all of the last strings together. 
  • "Alas, alas! Help, help! My lady's dead!- Oh, welladay, that ever I was born!- Some aqua vitae, ho!- My lord! My lady!" 
  • "O musicians, because my heart itself plays 'My Heart is Full.'  O, play me some merry dump to comfort me"
  • In scene IV, the irony is really important. Everybody is so happy about something that is so much more, a situation that is making their daughter consider suicide as an option. This results in the plan that is actually going to happen (it's a little bit messed up because the wedding was moved up)  There was also personification because the Nurse said "Oh what a sad day" and a day can't be sad. In scene 6, the servant provides comic relief by being being completely inappropriate for the situation- making jokes right after the family find that their daughter is dead.  In scene 1, there's a metaphor that compares Juliet to a rocky road. "You say you do not know the lady's mind. Uneven is the course. I like it not." (4.1.4-5)
