Storyboard Text

  • "Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still, should, without, eyes, see pathways to his will!" (Act I Scene I,  Lines 166-167)
  • Out of her favor, where I am in love.
  • By giving liberty unto thine eyes; examine other beauties. 
  • "Ha, banishment! Be merciful, say 'death,' for exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death." (Act 3 Scene 3, Lines 13-15)
  • Ha, banishment! Be merciful, say "death"
  • "Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here, shalt with him hence" (Act III Scene III, Lines 127-128)
  • This shall determine that.
  • Internal Conflict (Man vs. Self)
  • At the beginning of the story, Romeo is deeply in love with a girl named Rosaline, who doesn't love him back. Romeo can not emotionally handle his rejection and pushes himself to lock himself away from everyone else and live in depression. Because Romeo is emotionally conflicted between his love for Rosaline and his rejection, it is an internal conflict of Man vs. Self, and this forwards the story by causing Benvolio to make Romeo to attend the party where he would eventually meet and fall in love with Juliet.
  • External Conflict (Man vs. Society)
  • During a sword fight, Romeo killed Juliet's cousin Tybalt. Romeo was supposed to be executed, but because Tybalt had killed Mercutio, Romeo was sentenced to exile from Verona and away from Juliet. Because it is the law of the land that is exiling Romeo, it would be considered a Man vs. Society conflict. This conflict progresses the plot by pushing Juliet and Friar Lawrence to create a complex plan to reunite her and Romeo.
  • Romeo and Tybalt are in battle with each other after Tybalt killed Romeo's friend Mercutio. This drove Romeo into a fit of rage and fought with Tybalt till he killed him. This shows Man vs. Man because two different people are directly and physically fighting each other, and forwards the plot by ending in Tybalt's death and Romeo's banishment from Verona that causes Juliet to drink the vial in hopes of reuniting with Romeo.
