Romeo and Juliet Scene IV
This storyboard does not have a description.
"I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins, that almost freezes up the heat of life."
"Things that, to hear them told, have made me tremble- and I will do it without fear or doubt, to live an unstained wife to my sweet love."
" Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir. My daughter he hath wedded. I will die, and leave him all. Life, living, all is Death's."
This is Juliet saying that what she is about to do- fake her death- scares her immensely and shows her uncertainty about her decision to fool her family.
As in a vault, an ancient receptacle, where for these many hundred years the bones of all my buried ancestors are packed; where lies bloody Tybalt, yet but green in earth, lies festering in his shroud; where, as they say, at some hours in the night spirits resort--?
This quote defines Juliet's tone because it shows how scared she is but also how serious she is about the whole situation and what she is willing to do about it.
Lord Capulet says this to say that because Juliet has died, Death holds his daughter, his grandchildren, and his fortune.
