Can you list 3 metaphors in Act 2? What they are? What does the metaphor refer to? And, what is each metaphors deep meaning?Romeo and juliet act 2
Metaphor #1: "Juliet is the sun." She is love, beauty, life to his family's hate. She is the antidote to his depression over Rosaline.
Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
Metaphor #2: "Thy name is an enemy." Names are from a patriarchal society, man-made, full of baggage. Juliet and Romeo want to cast off their names (their parents' hate) and become reborn as lovers.
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
Metaphor #3: Juliet is an angel. She is not of this world, but a perfect creation from above. Romeo worships her.
