Romeo puts Juliet on a pedestal and quite literally sees her as a glorious light. Romeo feels insignificant in relation to Juliet, as if he is no match for her and he thinks she deserves to shine without his darkness dragging her down. He believes that with “More light and light, more dark and dark our woes” (III, v, 36.) Romeo’s self-deprecation is in the best interest for Juliet, all so she can live her life according to her deservance.
