Romeo and Juliet - Act IV
By 19herbse, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
"I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins that almost freezes up the heat of life." While saying this line, Juliet is afraid of drinking the vial containing the sleeping drug. Fear is expressed through unsettling words like 'faint' and 'freezes'.
"And ere by this hand, by the to Romeo sealed, Shall be the label to another deed, or my true heart with treacherous revolt turn to another, this shall slay them both." Juliet is desperate when she says this. Her desperation can be identified as she uses words like treacherous and revolt.
"Death, that hath ta'en her hence to make me wail, ties up my tongue and will not let me speak." Lord Capulet personifies death in this quote by making death sound as if it was performing a humanlike action. In this case, death 'took' Juliet.
"Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, o'ercovered quite with dead men's rattling bones, with reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls..." In this quote, Juliet uses imagery. She uses strong adjectives like rattling and reeky to create an image of a disgusting place.
I think that Friar Lawrence is at fault for the mistakes that have occurred in Romeo and Juliet. Even knowing that they were much too early in their relationship to marry, he married them anyway, ignoring his own better judgement.
Dramatic Irony was huge in act four. It was so significant because it caused characters to react to things based on what they knew, rather than what was actually fact. For example, the Capulet family weeps as they stand around Juliet's dead body. The thing is, Juliet's not dead. This creates added drama in the story.
