Storyboard Text

  •  Give me a torch. I am not for this ambling. Being but heavy, I will bear the light.
  • Nay, gentle Romeo, we must have you dance.
  • Not I, believe me. You have dancing shoes With nimble soles. I have a soul of lead So stakes me to the ground I cannot move
  • You are a lover. Borrow Cupid’s wings And soar with them above a common bound.
  • Romeo is the son and heir of Montague and Lady Montague. A young man of about sixteen, Romeo is handsome, intelligent, and sensitive.
  • in act 1 scene 4 Mercutio is joking around with his friends about love and other happy concepts. Also, in act 2 scene 1 he makes fun of Romeo for being in love. However, even on his deathbed Mercutio makes dark jokes and puns. 
  • Mercutio is a foil for Romeo, the young Petrarchan lover. Mercutio mocks Romeo's vision of love and the poetic devices he uses to express his emotions. Mercutio is an anti-romantic character who, like Juliet's Nurse, regards love as an exclusively physical pursuit.
