Storyboard Text

  • Act 4 Scene 2 begins with Capulet preparing for Juliet's wedding to Paris.
  • Juliet says that Friar Lawrence has helped her see her sins and asks for her father's forgiveness.
  • "Send for the County. Go tell him of this. I'll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning." Capulet forgives her and moves up the wedding. 
  • Capulet's character becomes controlling and forceful due to the tragedy of losing Tybalt and the shock of Juliet defying him.
  • Capulet is very excited about the wedding and is going to stay up all night preparing for it. 
  • "Where I have learned me to repent the sin of disobedient opposition to you and you behests, and am enjoined by holy Lawrence to fall prostrate here to beg your pardon." This is dramatic irony because the characters in the scene believe that Juliet has learned obedience, but we as the reader know that she has not and this is all part of her plan.
  • 
  • Juliet is smart, cunning, and brave for lying to her father and making him believe her. We know she had succeeded because Capulet says "Since this same wayward girl is so reclaimed," even though she isn't.
  • 
  • When Capulet says "My heart is wondrous light," it is a metaphor because his heart is not actually a wondrous light it is just used to show that he is very happy and excited for his daughter.
