Storyboard Text

  • (4.2.18-19)
  • "Where I have learned me to repent the sin of disobedient opposition..."
  • (4.1.53-55)
  • "If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help, Do thou but call my resolution wise, And with this knife I'll help it presently."
  • (4.5.38-40)
  • "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 goes back to her father after making a plan to escape with Friar Lawrence. She pretends to want to marry Paris, and claims she has learned not to disobey her father. She gets on her knees and begs for his forgiveness. She tries to convince him that she is obedient and intends to marry Paris.
  • (4.1.83-85)
  • "...or shut me nightly in a charnel house, o'ercoverd quite with dead men's rattling bones, with reeky shanks and yellow chapless skulls..."
  • Juliet goes to the Friar to see if he can help her. She wants him to find a way to make sure she doesn't marry Paris, and can stay with Romeo. She says that if he can't find a solution, she will take a knife and kill herself. She goes to the Friar and becomes so desperate for an answer she considers suicide.
  • (4.2.21-22)
  • "Send for the county. Go tell him of this. I’ll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning."
  • After Juliet took the vial of sleeping liquid, her father finds her 'dead'. He cries and is devastated. He begins yelling at Death and blaming 'him' for killing his daughter. He begins to talk about death as if it is a real person.
  • (4.3.21-23)
  • "...What if this mixture do not work at all? Shall I be married then tomorrow morning? No, no. This shall forbid it. Lie thou there..."
  • Juliet goes to see the Friar to help her come up with a plan to get out of the wedding. She is pedaling with the Friar to help her. She says that she would do many things, including hiding in a morgue full of bodies as long as she can be with Romeo.
  • In my opinion Lord Capulet is responsible for all the mistakes that occurred. He forced Juliet to agree to marry Paris, which caused her to go to the Friar for help, and receive the potion. He also causes her escape plan to change by moving the wedding up one day, throwing everything off balance. Without him the story might have played out differently.
  • One drama term used in act IV that is significant to the story is a soliloquy. Juliet has a soliloquy at the end of scene three where she expresses her fears of what might happen. It is important to the story because it explains her fears, and gives further insight into what her thoughts on the matter are.
