Storyboard Text

  • Romeo and Juliet
  • Theme: Age vs. Youth
  • Example 1: The Friar and Romeo
  • Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of rich Capulet. (87)
  • Here upon thy cheek the stain doth sit of an old tear that is not washed off yet. (89)
  • Example 2: The Friar and Romeo
  • There is no world without Verona walls.
  • And turned that black word "death" to "banishment." This is dear mercy and thou seest it not. (141)
  • The idea of age vs. youth suggests that a character who is older and has more experience will be better equipped to handle situations better than a younger more passionate one, who might make rash and ill-informed decisions based on their feelings in the moment.
  • Example 3: The Nurse and Juliet
  • I think you are happy in this second match... Your first is dead, or 'twere as good he were As living here and you no use of him. (173)
  • Romeo just met Juliet and has forgotten about Rosaline who he had been weeping about not long before. The Friar gives Romeo advice to slow down and go easy with Juliet. However, Romeo is young, foolish, and acts impulsively and the two are married very shortly.
  • Blindness and Sight
  • Romeo is acting like a child and is upset that he is banished. He talks to the wise Friar and tells him that he would rather be killed than banished. The Friar's insight tells Romeo to be thankful to only be banished.
  • Love
  • The nurse is wiser and older than Juliet and thinks she should marry Paris. She believes that it is smarter to move on since Romeo is banished. Juliet is young and needs assistance from the experienced nurse on what to do.
  • Blindness and sight connects to the theme of age vs. youth because the youth are more blind to the world and the aged people have sight. The older characters, the nurse and the Friar, understand the consequences of impulsive actions. However, the younger characters, Romeo and Juliet, act more on impulse rather than on experience.
  • The theme love connects to age vs. youth because it was love that made Romeo and Juliet disobey what their older and wiser advisors told them. Their love drove them to make impulsive decisions that displayed their youthfulness. If the two of them would have listened to the older and wiser people in their lives, they would not have died due to their love.
