“i defy you stars”

Defy- To rebel against an order, Romeo uses defy when he is planning to disobey his order of banishment and is ready to ride back into Verona. This has significance because if Romeo does dare to defy his banishment he knows he must die.


‘come cordial and not poison, go with me”

Cordial- Meaning a tasty poison This is interesting as we can understand that Romeo is treating the poison more like a medicine he has to take to cure him. This holds Significance as Romeo is so in love with Juliet he is willing to die to be with her in the “Clouds”.
