Metaphor work

In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare using a wide range of language throughout the play which when you closely analyse the thrase, it makes perfect sence

When Romeo is talking to Mercutio before the Capulet party, he keeps on talking about his love Rosealine on how perfect she is and he will never love another lady apart form her, and then Mercutio tells him that dreams do not always come true and he uses a metaphor “And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes”. In that he is saying that dreams are like wind, they can blow past you and let you down

By describing dreams like wind, he is saying dreams can fly away so quickly and hurt us badly anbuy saying this, Romeo has realised that he’s wasted so much time on a single girl when there are more out there

  • This is a PERFECT example of a full paragraph that explains the metaphor in that passage.

    Excellent work, Samy.
