the frowning night,/ Check‟ring the eastern clouds
with streaks of light (Act 2, scene 3)
Oh that deceit should dwell in such a beautiful place
The following are examples of oxymorons:
Beautiful tyrant, fiend angelical!
Dove-feathered raven, wolvish ravening lamb!
The following are examples of metaphors:
Whiter than new snow on a raven's back
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun.
