Romeo and Juliet Symbolism, Imagery, & Motifs definition and examples
LIGHT VS. DARK IMAGERY
Throughout the play light and dark imagery is repeated
Dreams are seen as an attempt to escape from reality.
Darkness helps to conceal the secret love of Romeo and Juliet.
Common connotations of darkness are evil or death, as in the final scene when Romeo and Juliet die in a dark tomb.
In the play, the idea that dreams are only fantasies is most visible in Mercutio’s "Queen Mab" speech.
Romeo, the dreamer, quickly falls hopelessly in love. Mercutio can’t help but create a satire around this idea.
Poison appears twice in the play; each time as a way to end a problem.
Friar Lawrence says everything has its purpose and that things are only made evil by human hands. The man-made poison that will make Juliet appear dead is evil.
Romeo visits an apothecary. He buys a lethal poison that ends his life.
