Storyboard Text

  • (4.2.21-24)
  • "By holy Lawrence to fall prostrate here To beg your pardon. Pardon, I beseech you! Henceforward I am ever ruled by you"
  • (4.1. 67-68)
  • "Be not so long to speak. I long to die If what thou speak'st speak not of remedy."
  • (4.5.38-40)
  • "Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter be hath wedded. I will die, And leave him all. Life, living, all is Death's."
  • In these lines Juliet has just talked with Friar Lawrence and made a plan to be with Romeo again. She then goes to her father asking for his forgiveness for when she told him that she wouldn't marry Paris. All of this is apart of their plan and Juliet effectively lies to her father in order to live happily ever after with Romeo.
  • (4.3.35-45)
  • This quote was important because it revealed her ultimatum. After speaking with Count Paris earlier on in the scene, Juliet turns to Friar Lawrence for help. She pulls out a knife and tells him that if he cannot fix her situation that she will fix it herself by killing herself instead. Her tone is desperate because she has resorted to suicide, which is a last resort. If she can't be with the love of her life then she doesn't want to be with anyone.
  • (4.1.77)
  • " An if thou darest, I'll give thee remedy."
  • In this scene the Capulets have just discovered Juliet is "dead" right before she could marry Count Paris. In reaction to Juliet's death Lord Capulet speaks of Death as if it were a person. He calls Death his heir and son in law because with the "death" of his only child he will have no one to pass his household onto, no successor.
  • (4.5.79-83)
  • " Dry up your tears and stick your rosemary ON this fair corse, and, as the custom is, And in her best array, bear her to church. For though some nature bids us all lament, Yet nature's tears are reason's merriment."
  • In scene 3, Juliet accepts Paris' marriage proposal to go along with Friar's plan. She then goes to her room with the vile of sleeping potion and sends her mother and nurse away. Juliet thinks about all the possible things that could go wrong, saying she could be stuck in the tomb with unbreathable air with all her dead ancestors (and Tybalt). This frightens her, but in the end she takes the potion and drinks to Romeo in hopes this will bring them a happy ending.
  • "To whose foul mouth no healthsome air breathes in, And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes? Or, if I live, is it not very like The horrible conceit of death and night, Together with the terror of the place-- As in a vault, an ancient receptacle, Where for these many hundred years the bones of all my buried ancestors are packed; Where bloody Tybalt, yet but green in earth, Lies festering in his shroud;"
  • In my opinion, Friar Lawrence deserves the most blame. He is a "holy man" he's supposed to be an honorable figure of God, yet all he has done is lie. This scene is important because this is where he conceives a plan for Romeo and Juliet to live happily ever after which ultimately ends with their deaths. If it weren't for his plan or him marrying Romeo and Juliet in the first place, maybe he could have used his "holy" influence to tell Juliet marrying Romeo would only lead to destruction.
  • I chose dramatic irony as my term. When Tybalt challenges Romeo he doesn't know that Romeo wed Juliet, in fact no one in the story but Friar Lawrence know Romeo and Juliet are married. In this scene the Friar lies about Juliet, telling her family to prepare her body for a proper burriel while he knows that she isn't actually dead. He is deceiving them, but since he is a "holy man" they trust him. The audience knows she's not dead but to Juliet's family she is and they are mourning her in this act.
