Storyboard Text

  • (4.3.14-48)
  • "Farewell!-God knows when we shall meet again..."
  • (4.1.56-60)
  • "...Or my true heart with treacherous revolt/ Turn to another, this shall slay them both."
  • (4.5.34-40)
  • "...Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. ? My daughter he hath wedded. I will die,/And leave him all. Life, living, all is Death's."
  • This is the pivotal moment that Juliet realizes her plan isn't full proof and there are many things that could go wrong. In the past all she was focused on was Romeo, but this is a reality check. This plan isn't the greatest idea and Juliet has some decisions to make, but eventually she chooses Romeo, like always.
  • (4.1.78-89)
  • "O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris, / From off the battlements of yonder tower; / Or walk in thievish ways; or bid me lurk / Where serpents are; chain me with roaring bears..."
  • Juliet goes to the Friar and asks him, desperately, for help. She is prepared to kill herself if he cannot get her out of the marriage to Paris. She knows he has a lot of wisdom and she doesn't know who to turn to. The main idea of this quote which is Juliet would rather die than marry Paris shows how desperate she is to get out of her current situation and this shows her desperate tone.
  • (2.3.85-92)
  • "...In one respect I'll thy assistant be, / For this alliance may so happy prove / To turn your households' rancor to pure love."
  • Capulet is grieving after the loss of his only daughter and he gives us a great insight into his feelings when he personifies death. By saying his daughter married death and how death is not related to him, he gives it a human characteristic. He wouldn't be so devastated if he didn't love or was angry with his daughter.
  • (4.4.3-6)
  • Juliet tells the Friar that she will do anything to avoid marrying Paris, including going to a dangerous slum, jumping off a light pole, sitting in a field of poisonous snakes and sitting in a morgue every nigh surrounded by fresh skulls with a rancid smell. Juliet ends by telling the Friar that even though these things give her fear, she would do them without trembling to be with Romeo.
  • I blame Friar Lawrence for all of the mistakes that have occurred because he is the one that married the two lovers. In this scene is is scolding Romeo for moving on to Juliet so fast after he was just moping about Rosaline. Even though the Friar knows it is not exactly the right thing to do, he agrees to marry the two to hopefully bring peace to a town full of hatred. It almost seems as though he is marrying them for his own motives and not their own interests.
  • "I pray thee, chide not. Her I love now / Doth grace for grace and love for love allow. / The other did not so.
  • In Act 4, the most obvious example of a drama term is the dramatic irony in scene 4. Lord Capulet is absolutely giddy with excitement because of Juliet's upcoming wedding. However the audience knows something he doesn't. They know that Juliet is in a death-like coma and appears to be dead. This scene is meant to contrast the obvious differences in mood between the scenes and is vital to the story line because it is a bridge to the "tragedy" we know is coming.
