A story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning.

An extended metaphor (carried through the whole book)


Comparison of Romeo's love for Juliet to a religious and spiritual experience.

A reader can notice this in lines like, "Call me but love and I'll be new baptized."

When the pair first meets, Romeo calls Juliet a "saint" and implies that he'd really like to "worship" her body (1.5.2).

Not only that, but Romeo's "hand" would be "blessed" if it touched the divine Juliet's (1.5.1).

Romeo compares Juliet to the sun (Act II Scene II)
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."

"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?

An act of speaking one's thoughts aloud when by oneself regardless of knowing if anyone is listening

6. Simile
A phrase that uses the words like or as to describe something by comparing it to something else that is similar
Sonnets 1-126 were written to
“Mr. W.H.” aka “The Fair Youth."
His identity is still a mystery,
but here are some possible
contenders:




Sonnets 126-154 were written to “The Dark Lady”
Her identity is also a mystery, but the sonnets tend to both curse and bless her

To whom were they written?

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.

The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;

The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
Romeo and Juliet
Prologue
Now, keep in mind... what was considered “beautiful” in the 1500’s might be different than what we consider beautiful today… Our perspective on beauty has changed.
Shakespearean Sonnets
Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets during his career.
His work is split into 2 folios
(like a portfolio)

The themes of the sonnets cover:
The passage of time, love, beauty and mortality (life).
