1: pg. 23 185-192
"With more of time. This love that thou hast shown/Doth add more grief to too much of mine own/ Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs/Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers tears/What is it else? A madness most discreet. A chocking gall, and a presenting sweet/ Farewell my coz" (Shakespeare 23).
the reason that this is an example of pathetic fallacy is because of the use of "smoke love" and "fire sparkling in tears" which are objects from the enviroment but are used metaphysically.
pg. 63 17-27
Welcome, gentlemen! Ladies that have their toes/ Unplagued with corns will have a bout with out. Ah, ha! my mistresses, with all of you all/ Will you deny a dance? She that ,makes daintry, She. I'll swear, hath corns. Am I came near ye now? Welcome, gentlemen! i have seen the day/That I have worn a visor and could tell/A whispering tale in a fair lady's ear, Such as would please; 'tis gone, 'tis gone, 'tis gone" (Shakespeare 63)
The pathetic fallacy in this text is the notion toward music, (a whispering tale) happy music, and dancing (have their toes, bout it out) that is supposed to make the reader/ audience happy.
pg 125 1-9
"The clock struck nine when I did send the nurse/ in half an hour she promised to return/ perchance she can not meet him; thats not so/ O, she is lame! Loves heralds should be thoughts/ Which ten times faster glade then the suns beams/ Driving back shadows over louring hills/ Therefore do nimble-pinion'd doves draw love/ And therefore hath the wind-swift cupid wings/ Now is the sun upon the high most hill" (Shakespeare 125). in this excerpt, the pathetic fallacy would be, Which ten times faster glade then the suns beams/ Driving back shadows over louring hills/ because it is reflecting the environment, showing she was ecstatic, nervous and worried.

Pg.277:87-93
Death, lie thou there, by a dead man interr'd/ (laying Paris in the tomb)/
How oft when men are at the point of death/Have they been merry! which their keepers call/ A lightning before death O, how may i/Call this lightning? o my love! my wife!/ Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath/ Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty.
(Shakespeare 277)
the pathetic fallacy showcased in this is, A lightning before death O, how may i/Call this lightning? o my love! my wife!/ Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath/. This is pathetic fallacy because of the use of the environmental factor of lightning, and the honey of breathe before death. in this you are supposed to feel sad, disappointed and mournful.
