romeo and juliet

Storyboard Text

  • Personification
  • "Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word By thee, Old Capulet, and Montague Have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets"
  • Dramatic Irony
  • "God pardon sin! Wast thou with Rosaline?"
  • Situtional Irony
  • "An if he hear thee, thou wilt anger him'
  • "The ape is dead, and I must conjure him I conjure thee by Rosaline's bright eyes By her high forehead and her scarlet lip By her fine foot, straight leg, and quivering thigh And the demesnes that there adjacent lie That in thy likeness thou appear to us"
  • During Act I, Scene I, Prince Escalus admonishes the families for their constant fighting in the streets, while continuing the same speech the Prince, warns (and foreshadows) when he says: "If ever you disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace"
  • Soliloquy
  • During Act II, Scene III, Friar Lawrence realizes Romeo has not been to bed, he replies , "God pardon sin! Wast thou with Rosaline? but the audience knows that Romeo was not with Rosaline, in fact he is already over her and has been with Juliet all night, not committing sin.
  • Metaphor
  • In Act II, Scene I, Mercutio and Benvolio have witnessed Romeo climb the wall surrouding the Capulet property. The two are completely unaware of the fact that Romeo has now fallen head-over-heels in love with Juliet and any references of Rosaline would have no affect on him at this point. Futhermore they are next to the Capulet wall speaking of Rosaline, when in actuality they should be making references to Juliet. However they do not about Romeo's new love interest.
  • Simile
  • "We'll have no cupid hoodwinked with a scarf Bearing a Tartar's painted bow of lath Scaring the ladies like a crowkeeper,..."
  • In Act II, Scene II, Romeo expresses his thoughts about Juliet when he sees her appear from the balcony. He starts off by comparing Juliet to the sun rising in the east and throughout the monologue he uses metaphors, similes, rhetorical questions, and exaggeration in a declaration of his and passion for Juliet. Which clearly shows that Romeo is truly smitten and would do anything to be with her.
  • "But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale of grief , That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. Be not her maid since she is envious...."
  • In Act I, Scene IV, Romeo has crashed the Capulet party. Romeo sees Juliet and uses this metaphor to compare Juliet's appearance to that of beautiful jewelry, rendering her as exotic and mysterious with his reference to Africa.
  • "... It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiopians ear.."
  • In Act I, Scene IIII, Romeo, Benvolio, and Mercutio are in the process of entering the house of the Capulet to join the party. Benvolio says that the boys will not be introduced at the party by a presenter dressed like Cupid, carrying a small bow, who will scare the ladies away like a scarecrow scares crows. The presenter scaring the ladies is being compared by the word, like, to a scarecrow scaring crows.
