Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • (4.5.9)
  • "I needs must wake her. Madam, madam, madam"
  • (4.1.122)
  • "Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear!"
  • (4.5.38)
  • "Death is my son-in-law"
  • The meaning of this quote is that the nurse is very happy and exited because it is the day that Juliet gets married to Paris. The nurse wants to get Juliet up and ready to go to the wedding.
  • (4.1.78-81)
  • "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"
  • When Juliet visits Friar she is sad and desperate. Juliet is sad because she has to marry Paris and can't be with Romeo right now. Juliet is desperate to get the potion to make her fall asleep because she doesn't want to marry Paris and then have two husbands and a miserable life.
  • Tybalt (3.1.78)
  • "I'll fight you"
  • Lord Capulet uses personification while seeing Juliet appearing to be dead. Lord Capulet is very sad right now because his daughter was going to have a husband but now finds her "dead". The way that Lord Capulet uses the personification is meaning that his daughter married death.
  • (4.1.92-93)
  • "Hold, then. Go home, be merry. Give consent To marry Paris. Wednesday is tomorrow"
  • Juliet is describing what her tomb will look like when she gets buried because everybody thinks she is dead and then they will put her in a tomb. These lines are saying you can tell me to jump off the battle posts of any tower, or to walk down the crime-ridden streets of a slum. Or tell me to sit in a field full of poisonous snakes, or Chain me up with wild bears. Juliet is describing how bad her tomb could be and how scared she is. Juliet is also scared about the plan not working.
  • I blame Tybalt for all of the mistakes that have occurred in the book because he was the one who wanted to fight Romeo and that's what lead to all of the disasters to follow. Tybalt was the one who started the argument out in the streets and that's when everything went downhill. Romeo got banned from Verona, Juliet can't see Romeo again, Mercutio dies, Juliet and Lord Capulet get in a heated argument, and Juliet is forced to marry Paris.
  • One drama term that I noticed was consent. Consent is when you agree to do something. The significance of this term is that Juliet agreed to take the potion that Friar gave her and this potion would put her to sleep so that the people think she is dead and then she can't get married and will eventually run off with Romeo. Juliet feared that the potion would actually kill her or not work at all.
