 Find good examples of 6 of any of the following: metaphors, similes, personification, antithesis, oxymoron, repetition, alliteration, listing, rhyming couplet and puns (that were not marked in the Balcony scene.) (Do not use more than 2 of each). Take examples from any of the other texts we dealt with. Explain each one. Use any four as models and create your own sentences.

There are several example of personification in act 2 scene 3 where the Friar is working with his plants. He begins by talking about the "grey-eyed morn" as well as other elements of nature. He has a long monologue about poisons and such in this scene as well. There are also a few metaphors here. "Two such opposed kings encamp them still in man as well as herbs." He isn't talking about actual kings but rather things that rule us like "grace and rude will." If you continue reading this scene past the Friar's opening monologue, you will find many other examples as well.

You'll find a good list of oxymorons in Romeo's speech about loving Rosaline. An oxymoron, as you know, is a statement of contrast, often ironic in nature. Romeo says: "Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health!"
