Storyboard Text

  • 4.1.18-24
  • Where I have learned me to repent the sin Of disobedient opposition To you and your behests, and am enjoyed By holy Lawrence to fall prostrate here To beg your pardon Pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ever ruled by you.
  • 4.1.55-59
  • And with this knife I’ll help it presently. (shows him a knife) 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, Or my true heart with treacherous revolt
  • 4.5.32-33
  • Death, that hath ta'en her hence to make me wail, Ties up my tongue and will not let me speak.
  • In this scene, Juliet is apologizing to her father. She is on her knees, to show how sorry she is, but on the inside, she isn't reallt sorry. She is trying to make her father believe she is being sincere. The tapestry in the back is gray represents Juliet lying to her father, and all of the honesty being drained out of her, leaving her as a dark and gloomy color.
  • 4.1.83-85
  • Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, O'ercovered quite with dead men’s rattling bones, With reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls;
  • Juliet is very obligated to not marry Paris, and will literally do anything to make sure she doesn't. She even threatens to kill herself if she has to marry him.
  • 2.2.33
  • Capulet says that death tied up his tongue, and he cannot speak, but death cannot physically take your tongue and tie it. What is he saying is that Juliet's "death" was so devastating, that he cannot speak because of how heart broken he is.
  • 4.5.14-59
  • Juliet describes the tomb as filled with wet and slimey dead bodies, and the tomb is covered in bugs and snakes.
  • I believe it is Romeo's fault for multiple things that have happened. If Juliet never met Romeo, and had to marry Paris, she would probably go along with it, and not fake her death.
  • O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
  • This scene is important, because it truly sets the climax through the roof. Juliet doesn't want to marry Paris, so she fakes her death. That's crazy! What will happen if Romeo finds out? What will he do?
