Storyboard Text

  • My dreams presage some joyful news at hand... I dreamt my lady came and found me dead—
  • How sweet is love itself possesed when but love's shadows are so rich in joy!
  • How doth my lady? is my father well?...How fares my Juliet? That i ask again.
  • This is when Romeo is in Mantua and he has happily woken up from his dream where he he saw him being dead and woken up by Juliet's kiss. This shows us that he was suddenly very excited as he had seen Juliet which was like his life for him so he didnt even pay attention to the context of the dream because he was almost blind after seeing Juliet
  • Is it e'en so? Then I defy you, stars !
  • Her body sleeps in Capel's monument...I saw her laid low in her kindred’s vault.
  • Also we can say that it is a blurry indication of what will happen with him in future. Additionally the word 'shadow' links back to how he compared Juliet with light and how they left each other when light came out which indicates that it was a negative source but once again it has shown romeo a shadow of Juliet which has cheered him up.
  • 'hire post horses . i will hence tonight.'
  • In this scene Romeo has gotten impatient as his servant /friend has come back from Verona and Romeo is desperate to know about what is going on there specially how Juliet is.
  • 'Well juliet i will lie with thee tonight. Lets see for means. O mischeif, thou art swift. To enter the thoughts of desperate men!'
  • This quote describes how tensed Romeo is and it shows how he is cursing fate of the unfortunate news about Juliet and and he thinks that he won't let faith get him this time.
  • On the other hand fate does what it wants and all though romeo was leaving for verona with anger upon fate in the end what is decided will happen and him defying the stars isnt going to change it.
  • This quote that romeo states describes how desperate he is to get to Verona as fast as possible which makes him talk to Juliet even though she isn't there. Also he is getting distracted by negative thoughts .
