Storyboard Text

  • Imagery
  • Balcony scene
  • Departure of thy Romeo
  • To use figurative language to represent objects, actions, and ideas in such a way that appeals to our physical senses and creates visual description in our minds.
  • Love at the speed of lightning
  • "It is the East, and Juliet is the Sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon," (act 2 scene 2). Romeo is comparing Juliet to the Sun because she is the goodness in the world.
  • Fate
  • "Then, window, let day in, and let life out," (act 3 scene 5). Romeo and Juliet can only be together at night because their love is hidden and Romeo will be killed if he's found with Juliet
  • Love Vs. Hate
  • "Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say “It lightens.”( Act 2 Scene 2) The image of a flash of light disappearing into the dusk seems to symbolize both the brilliant strength of Romeo and Juliet's love, as well as its weakness. Juliet compares their new-found love to lightening, primarily to stress the speed at which their romance is moving, but also to suggest that, the lightning appears in the blackness of the night sky, similar to how their love comes from opposites.
  • "Give me my Romeo, and when I shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars,"(Act 3 Scene 2). At this moment, Juliet believes she is safe and secure with her love for Romeo. She feels that she is outrunning her fate, but in reality both her and Romeo's lives and love will come to an end.
  • "My only love sprung from my only hate...That I must love a loathed enemy,"(act 1 scene 5). Love is a grand passion but it is just as blinding. It has the power to overwhelm a person as forcefully as hate. It is only through death that they can preserve their love.
