Storyboard Text

  • (4.3.15)
  • I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins.
  • (4.1.60-61)
  • Caught between these two difficulties, I'll act like a judge with my bloody knife.
  • I think that there is hope for you and Paris.
  • (4.5.31-32)
  • 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.
  • Juliet has a cold fear through her veins because she is scared that the potion could go wrong and might not work. She is worried that the potion could be poisonous or that she will wake up the next morning and will have to marry Paris.
  • (4.1.80-86)
  • Or shut me nightly in a charnel house, O'ercovered quite with dead men's rattling bones, With reeky shanks and yellow Chapless skulls; Or bid me go into a new-made grave and hide me with a dead man in his shroud.
  • Friar Lawrence believes that there is hope for Juliet and Paris' relationship and that she could find love in Paris. Juliet does not think so because she already loves Romeo and would rather kill herself than marry Paris. Juliet's tone is very angry and upset by the thought of marrying Paris.
  • (1.5.44-45)
  • Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear. So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows.
  • Juliet takes the sleeping potion and she appears to be dead. This makes Lord Capulet very upset. This quote personifies death because he is saying that if death were a living person, that death would take everything from him because he is losing everything because Juliet has died. This quote is personification because death can't take things and isn't a living thing.
  • (4.5.100-102)
  • Musicians, O musicians, "Heart's Ease," "Heart's Ease." O, an you will have me live, play "Heart's Ease."
  • Why "Heart's ease?"
  • Juliet describes to Friar Lawrence how she feels the tomb would be if she kills herself instead of marrying Paris. Juliet says it would be smelly and wet with skulls and dead bodies. Juliet is disgusted by the thought of this. Her description created imagery to allow the reader to imagine what the tomb would really be like.
  • I think that Romeo is the character to blame for all of the mistakes that have occurred. I think this because when he saw Juliet for the first time he loved her and wanted to marry her. His tragic flaw which is making quick decisions without thinking has caused an even bigger mess to occur between the two families.
  • In this scene, Juliet appears to be dead and her family is very upset by this. Peter and the two musicians argue about what song should be played at the funeral. This functions as comic relief because the funny arguments gives relief to the sad moment. This makes the audience laugh a little bit so they aren't just thinking about death.
  • Oh, musicians, because my heart is singing "My Heart is Full of Woe."
