Romeo and Juliet Act 1 and ll- Comic/storyboard Activity
This storyboard does not have a description.
But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,Who is already sick and pale with grief,
Younger than she are happy mothers made.
Tybalt, the kinsman to old Capulet, Hath sent a letter to his father’s house.
A challenge, on my life.
This quote shows the power of love. In this scene Romeo is describing how beautiful Juliet is. He is saying Juliet is as beautiful as the sun. The theme is shown because Romeo is expressing how much he loves Juliet and he can’t live without her. He compares Juliet to the sun which means Juliet is as beautiful and bright as the sun. The theme power of love is very strong back then and now.
This quote shows the theme the old vs the young. In this theme Juliet’s mother is saying to go get married to live a happy life. But Juliet wants to have freedom and not marry anyone. The mother symbolises tradition and Juliet symbolises rebellion because Juliet doesn’t want to do what is the “norm” in their society and get married. Lady Capulet wants to do what is tradition which is to get Juliet married so she can live a happy life. This shows that people rebel against their parents a lot.
This quote shows the theme the cycle of violence.In this scene Benvolio is saying that Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo’s father’s house and Mercutio thinks it is a duel. This shows the theme cycle of violence because the capulets and montagues can never have peace. It is always about war and fighting. This shows that the theme will always be prominent throughout the book because the montagues and capulets will always hate each other and never come to an agreement.
