Storyboard Text

  • Symbolism
  • Balcony
  • Light and Darkness
  • Symbolism is the use of symbols to represent bigger ideas or qualities.
  • Poison
  • It symbolized Romeo's love for Juliet, that nothing can stand in the way between them, not even their family's feud. ‘Juliet Art thou not Romeo, and a Montague? Romeo Neither, fair maid, if either thee dislike.’ II.II.Ln 60-61
  • Love
  • "Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night, Give me my Romeo"(Act 3, Scene 2). This is used to demonstrate that they can only be together during the night, since they can't be seen together in plain light, the sun, since they have a family feud. "Will thou be gone? It is not near day...'Night's candles are burnt out...I must be gone and live, or stay and die"(Act 3. Scence 5).
  • Fate
  • In man as well as herbs—grace and rude will;And where the worser is predominant,Full soon the canker death eats up that plant. (2.2.23-31)Friar Laurence suggests that, depending on how it's used, a flower can be healing or poisonous (if it's orally ingested). The Friar also muses that people are a lot like the flower he holds in his hand—being full of both grace and rude will, human beings also have the capacity to be good or deadly, depending on whether or not rude will takes over.
  • In Romeo and Juliet, love is a violent, ecstatic, overpowering force that supersedes all other values, loyalties, and emotions. In the course of the play, the young lovers are driven to defy their entire social world: families “Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Juliet asks, “Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet” Romeo abandons Mercutio and Benvolio after the feast in order to go to Juliet’s garden
  • Poison represented the family feud, and how Romeo and Juliet had to die to resolve the problem. "He did buy a poison of a poor 'pothecary... to die and lie with Juliet. Where be these enemies?- Capulet, Montague, see what scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys"(Act 5 Scene 3)
