“The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars. As daylight doth a lamp. Her eye in heaven. Would through the airy region stream so bright. That birds would sing and think it were not night”(2.2.19-22).
Romeo uses metaphors to describe who Juliet is through his eyes and how he sees Juliet. He describes her eyes by saying they are so bright that the birds would start singing thinking it is daytime. He is trying to say that her eyes are so bright, it is the first thing anyone would see and get fooled by, by falling for her eyes. More specifically, Juliet’s eyes are the first things his eye catches since they are so “bright”. This quote is a great quote to illustrate light and dark as Romeo expresses how noticeable Juliet is to him by describing her eyes as “bright”.
