So one of the personification that I found in Romeo and Juliet was From love’s weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed. (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 11). The meaning of this personification was about Rosalina. Romeo says this to Benvolio while talking about love. Romeo says that she doesn’t want to fall in love and he says that she beautiful and has lovely eyes, but she is sadly a vrigin and vowed it. Romeo also mentions that Rosalina will die with beauitful, and her beauty will die with her. No matter how hard Romeo tried Rosalina wouldn’t get impressed. One of the personification found in Romeo and Juliet was If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down (Act 1, Scene 4, Page 2). Before going to crash at the Capulet’s party. Mercutio tells Romeo to cheer up because of his love failure with Rosalina, since she’s a virgin. So he advices him to be rough with love as the to him.

The winds thy sighs, Who, raging with thy tears, and they with them, Without a sudden calm will overset (Act 3, Scene 5, page 6). If we want to make sense of this extended metaphor, then going back to the pervion scene. So Lady Capulet and Capulet tell Juliet that her marriage is fixed with Paris and Capulet is sure that Paris will make Juliet a “joyful” bride. But Juliet doesn’t mention that she has married Romeo. And so Juliet says that she won’t be the happiest bride and in anger Capulet says this extended metaphor. Since Capulet thinks that Juliet is greiving over Tybalt’s dead. So it seems that Capulet is telling Juliet to get over Tybalt’s dead and since she has been crying so much. He mentions that Juliet’s tears are the sea and her body is the boat where there tears flow. This is another type of metaphor, But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with
