Give me three examples of personification in Romeo and Juliet (including the act and scene number).
1 Answer | Add Yours
In Act II, scene iii the friar says in lines 1-2
The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
Chequering the eastern clouds with streaks of light
The morning can't smile, that's a human trait.
In the same scene, the friar again uses personification giving care the ability to use eyes, and fill a place to reside:
Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye,
And where care lodges, sleep will never lie;
Lastly, In Act III, scene ii near the end, Juliet asks death to take her "maidenhead" (virginity). This is quite the personification:
Come, cords, come, nurse; I'll to my wedding-bed;
And death, not Romeo, take my maidenhead!
