"Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds, Toward Phoebus' lodging. Such a wagoner As Phaeton would whip you to the west And bring in cloudy night immediately."(III.II.1-4)
What devil art thou that dost torment me thus? This torture should be roared in dismal hell. Hath Romeo slain himself? Say thou but “ay,” And that bare vowel I shall poison more Than the death-darting eye of cockatrice.(III.II.43-48)

"Oh, find him! Give this ring to my true knight! And tell him to come here to say his last goodbye." (III.II.148-150)
Juliet is anxiously waiting for the Nurse in her room for news from her husband, Romeo. As soon as the Nurse gets in the room Juliet goes up to her, and the nurse gives her the news that Romeo has killed her cousin, Tybalt. Juliet immediately gets mad at Romeo.
Juliet is in disbelief of what Romeo has done. After thinking she starts to think to herself what type of wife she is, for not being on her husbands side. Then she says that having her husband banished is worst than hundred dead Tybalts.
That “banishèd,” that one word “banishèd” Hath slain ten thousand Tybalts. Tybalt’s death (III.II.114-116)
While Juliet is talking about Romeo, she asks the Nurse to give him a ring. Juliet felt really sad because her husband was banished.
Juliet uses met metaphor as a literary device to compare Romeo to a dragon and a tyrant. This emphasizes how she was mad and frustrated. It also shows how quickly Juliet changed her mind about Romeo.
The theme I chose for this scene is that you should not choose someone you barely know over your family. Juliet chose her husband that killed her cousin over her whole family, and now she is all by herself.
