  • Allusion
  • Speak to my gossip Venus one fair word...
  • Soliloquy
  • O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
  • Oxymoron
  • A damned saint, an honorable villain!
  • Mercutio and Benvolio start making fun of Romeo and his blind love for Rosalind, and in doing so Mercutio mentions "Venus," "Young Adam Cupid," and "King Cophetua," all of which are mentioned in Greek/Roman mythology. (Act II, Scene I; lines 11-14)
  • Repitition
  • Juliet's soliloquy in the balcony at night after the Capulet party is dedicated to Romeo, and she is not aware that Romeo is secretly listening to her confess her true feelings. (Act II, Scene II; lines 33-48)
  • Pun
  • Being but heavy, I will bear the light.
  • "Beautiful tyrant! fiend angelical!" "Dove-feathered raven! wolvish-ravening lamb!" "A damned saint, an honorable villain!" are all examples of oxymoron Juliet uses once she finds out that her husband has killed her cousin, Tybalt. (Act III, Scene II; lines 75-89)
  • Metaphor
  • After the nurse delivers the news to Juliet that Tybalt is dead, she starts exclaiming "he's dead, he's dead, he's dead!" A clear example of repetition. (Act III, Scene II; lines 37-39)
  • Ah, well-a-day! he’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead!
  • Romeo makes a joke based on the meanings of heavy and light; a play on words. (Act I, Scene IV; line 12)
  • In Act II Scene II, Romeo compares Juliet to the sun upon meeting her once, and he doesn't use the words "like" or "as," making it a metaphor. (Act II, Scene II; line 3)
  • It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!
