Provide examples of personification in Romeo and Juliet Act 2

A

“Romeo and Juliet”, is replete with personification, and one example is when Friar Lawrence is picking blossoms for his different potions. He says: “The dim ey’d morn blesses the grimacing night, Check’ring the Eastern mists with dashes of light.”

In another example, Romeo likens Juliet to the sun, and calls the moon jealous, pale with misery, and even calls the moon a she. Romeo uses the moon to depict how beautiful Juliet is, lovely to the point that if the moon were an individual, she would be envious.

Love, a focal subject of the play, is exemplified as “so delicate in his view” however “so tyrannous and unpleasant in evidence.”
