Quote Analysis Act 3 Scene 5 Line 54 (Romeo and Juliet)

O, God, I have an ill-divining soul! – Juliet

This quote is Juliet talking about her soul, and how it makes bad things happen. Her mind predicts bad and evil things occurring. The word ill means suffering from an illness, a dark, horrible thing often causing death. Divining is associated with someone or something that has supernatural insight into the future. Put together this word means a dark, bad, dangerous thing that is destined to happen in the future. Her mind, her inner body, is destined to cause something bad to happen. I think this relates to the whole story because of everything in the play is dependent on fate, and they can’t control theirĀ ending.
