  • Allusion
  • Don't be such a Romeo.
  • Allusion Example #1
  • Allusion Example #2
  • An allusion is a statement that refers to something without mentioning it directly
  • Allusion Example #3
  • "Well, in that hit you miss. She'll not be hit with Cupid's arrow. She hath Dian's wit, And, in strong proof of chastity well armed From love's weak childish bow she lives uncharmed." (pg. 25) Rosaline vowed to be a virgin and not get hit by one of Cupid's arrows. Romeo thinks he has no chance if she thinks she is invincible against cupid. Romeo is now depressed.
  • Fate
  • "Now is he for the numbers that Petrarch flowed in." (pg. 93) Petrarch is known as the “Father of Humanism”. He's one of the best poets and Mercutio mocks his poetry when teasing Romeo. He refers to Petrarch when talking to Romeo explaining that he could’ve found someone better than Rosaline. This is because Petrarch also could've found someone better.
  • Imagery
  • "Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds, towards Phoebus' lodging." (pg. 129) Phoebus is the Greek god of light and sun and rides chariot. His daily journey is represented as the sunrise and sunset. Juliet wants sun to set quickly to see Romeo safety and therefore refers to Phoebus to make his journey quickly.
  • Fate plays an important role in the theme of allusion. Things happen for a reason and when there are references to outside works to helps to further enhance its importance. Just like how Rosaline decided not to get struck by Cupids arrows and to stay a virgin, it was fate for Romeo to move on to Juliet.
  • Imagery also plays an important part. When there are references to outside works, it's easier to imagine and better understand the importance of a situation. For example, when Juliet wants Phoebus to hurry up so she can see Romeo, you can imagine her impatience and love for Romeo as well as to better imagine the setting.
