Storyboard Text

  • Caption 1: The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars / As daylight doth a lamp (2.2.4-5).
  • Caption 2: Romeo uses figurative language to describe Juliets cheeks being brighter than the stars in the sky, and compares it to a sun outshining a lamp. Romeo uses this line after the Capulet feast when Juliet first enters her balcony. This line enhances the romantic mood that Shakespeare is trying to describe between Romeo and Juliet. It also adds night and day imagery (an important motif theme in the play) to the scene because although the scene was happening during the night, Romeo's quote adds daylight imagery to the scene when he makes the comparison between Juliets bright cheeks being brighter than the stars and the sun outshine the lamp.
