Storyboard Text

  • (4.3.15)
  • I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins that almost freezes up the heat of life.
  • If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help, do thou but call my resolution wise, and with this knife I'll help it presently.
  • (4.1.53-55)
  • (4.5.35-36)
  • Oh son! The night before your wedding day hath death lain with thy wife. Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir.
  • They say at some hours in the night spirits resort here.
  • Juliet is nervous before drinking the potion that will make her appear dead. She contemplates all the bad things that could happen. She fears she will wake up before Romeo comes to get her and she will be stuck in the tomb.
  • (4.3.36-41)
  • Juliet comes to Friar Lawrence asking for help and threatns to kill herself if he cannot give her any wise advice. She is desperate for a way out of marrying Paris and will do anything, even death. She has already married Romeo and wants to be faithful to him.
  • (1.5.91-94)
  • If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.
  • Capulet tells Paris his wife to be has died the day before their wedding. This shows personification of death because it says death layed with Juliet, and death can't actually lay down.
  • (4.5.30-31)
  • Oh woeful time.
  • "It is like the horrible conceit of death and night, together with the terror of the place- as in a vault, and ancient receptacle, where for these many hundred years the bones of all my buried ancestors are packed." Here, Juliet speaks of the Capulet tomb and is expressing fears of waking up inside it before Romeo comes to get her. She describes the smell and the bones inside.
  • Capulet Tomb
  • Romeo is to blame for all the mistakes that have been made because if he hadn't flirted with Juliet at the party, she wouldn't have fallen for him and none of this would have happened. Romeo was also the one that made the mistake of killing Tybalt, causing him to be exiled.
  • A drama term in act four was dramatic irony. The audience knew Juliet wasn't really dead when she drank the potion, but her family thought she was. This is significant because it adds a lot of drama to the story and is a big part of the plot. It allows Juliet to get out of marrying Paris and to be with Romeo.
  • Oh lamentable day!
