Act IV Scene II

Keegan Smith


The act starts off with some comic relief, where Lord Capulet is talking with the serving men. Juliet enters, with news after visiting Friar, to tell her father that she will marry Paris. Juliet's plan was to wait until Wednesday night, and before she would go to sleep, take a potion that would essentially render her dead until Friday.

Juliet tells her father that she will marry Paris, and she begs her father for forgiveness--implying to Capulet for disobeying him, but to the audience it is known that she asks just for him not to be mad at her-- and he agrees to forgive her. Capulet, however, is so excited that he moves the wedding up to Wednesday, causing the plan to go wrong, as Juliet could wake up a day early.

Juliet tries to keep the wedding on for Thursday, but due to Capulet stubbornness, it is moved to Wednesday.

We The Kings - Sad Song (Lyric Video) ft. Elena Coats
I chose this song because it shows how much Juliet loves Romeo. The song, written by We The Kings talks about how sad the author would be without the one he loves, and would do anything to be with her. Juliet's case is very similar, that she is willing to tell her father she will marry another man as part of her plan to be with the one she truly loves.
