Storyboard Text

  • (4.5.9)
  • I needs must wake her. Madam, madam, madam...
  • (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 presently.
  • (4.5.38)
  • Death is my son-in-law. Death is my heir.
  • During this scene, the nurse is unaware of the fact that Juliet is unconscious because of a drug she took or "dead". She still believes that Juliet is sleeping. I believe Shakespeare used these words to show increased urgency as the nurse is realizing that something is wrong.
  • (4.1.85-86)
  • Or bid me go into a new-made grave, and hide me with a dead man in his shroud.
  • When Juliet meets with Friar Lawrence, she is desperate and depressed. I think this because she is hoping Friar Lawrence has a plan to prevent her from marrying Paris. Juliet states that if he can't help her she will kill herself.
  • (4.1.94-118)
  • "Thou take this vial, being in them bed, And this distilled liquor drink thou off, When presently through all thy veins shall run...Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death...Shall Romeo bear thee hence Mantua."
  • This quote is personification because Capulet is giving death human-like qualities. Capulet is saying that death is his son-in-law and his heir, which is a person.
  • (4.3.21-25)
  • "What if this mixture do not work at all? Shall I be married then tomorrow morning?...What if if it be a poison, which the friar Subtly hath ministered to have me dead?"
  • The diction that Juliet used during this scene, such as new-made grave, dead man, and shroud all create an image in your head of what Juliet is going to have to do to make this plan work. During this scene, Juliet is telling Friar Lawrence that she is willing to anything to be with Romeo and escape marrying Paris. The diction she uses shows how desperate Juliet is to be with Romeo.
  • I think Friar Lawrence is to blame for what has happened because Romeo and Juliet are teenagers that don't know the difference between love and lust. Romeo and Juliet also don't think about the consequences of their actions, but Friar Lawrence is supposed to be the wise and responsible person to teach them what is right and wrong. Instead, he encourages a plan for Juliet to fake her own death which eventually will end in tragedy.
  • I choose this scene Juliet saying a solioquoy because I thought it was interesting that she had so many doubts about this plan, but she didn't have nearly as many doubts about any of the other irrational plans she participated in to be with Romeo. I think this soliloquy was an important part in the play because it shows a part of Juliet that isn't completely blinded by love.
