What is a example of a symbol In Romeo and Juliet?
A recurring motif in Romeo and Juliet are stars. They are symbolic of several things. Romeo and Juliet talk about each other as sources of light: "O she doth teach the torches to burn bright," "it is the east and Juliet is the Sun", "and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun". In this last quote, Juliet wants Romeo to be cut out "in little stars". Stars, like torches, illuminate the night, and the night is the time for love, just as the day is the time for fighting.
Stars are also symbolic of fate. In the prologue Romeo and Juliet are described as "star-crossed". Romeo later says, "Then I defy you stars!"

A foreshadow is a signal that suggests or warns of something tocome. Some examples of foreshadowing in Romeo and Juliet are: -When the prince warns that if there is anymore trouble in thestreets 'your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace'. - Romeofears going to the party of his enemy because he …feels thatsomething will happen that will soon lead to his death. He says 'Ifear, too early. For my mind misgives some consequence, yet hangingin the stars, shall bitterly begin this fearful date with thisnight's revels and expire the term of a despised life, closed in mybreast, by some vile forfeit of untimely death'. This isforeshadowing because he has this feeling and it does come true. Hemeets Juliet at the party and their story ends in double suicide. (MORE)
Well in act1 scene 1 there are some uses of oxymoroms made by romeo. This is: cold fire feather of lead bright smoke and sick health
The play Romeo and Juliet is a good example of a love tragedy because the main characters kill themselves because of the misunderstanding caused between them which misleads them to think that they are separated.
An allusion is an indirect reference to something in particular. Anexample of an allusion ins Romeo and Juliet would be: In Act 3Scene 2 Juliet says 'Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds, TowardsPhoebus' lodging: such a wagoner, As Phaethon would whip you to thewest, And bring in cloudy night immed…iately.' These words are anallusion that refers to Helios and Phaethon (the sun-god and hisson). (MORE)
"Who, nothing hurt withal, hissed him in scorn" - Benvolio-Act 1 Scene 1 when the Prince and the Capulet's exit.
There is lots of Imagery in Romeo and Juliet, for example religious. They use this religious imagery to show that their love is pure.
The whole play is full of images--you'd be hard pressed to quote four successive lines without hitting one. The first is "where civil blood makes civil hands unclean" in the prologue.
The Capulets finds out that Juliet has died, but the audience knows that she is not dead, but has drank a sleeping potion which allows her to appear dead.
II. 2. 3-4. What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the Sun! Arise fair sun and kill the envious moon. Here, a metaphor is used, and Romeo speaks of Juliet as if she werethe sun.
Aside: an actor's speech, directed to the audience that is not supposed to be heard by other actors on stage. Juliet: Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Capulet. Romeo (Aside) : Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this? Juliet: 'Tis but thy name that is my …enemy. Thou art thyself, though not a Montagueâ¦" (MORE)

Dreamers often lie. Or taller people sleep longer in bed. Both are from act one.
Juliet to nurse: " If he be married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed." She means if he is married she will die unmarried for she can love no other, but it foreshadows her death if she marries him.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is an example of many things. It shows how powerful love is and the extents that someone would go to for someone they love. It shows how fighting can lead to complete disasters and that there shouldn't be feuds. It proves that you can't force your child to marry someon…e if the child loves someone else. Romeo and Juliet have many lessons and I think Shakespear wrote this play to show people it is better to love than to fight, it is better to have peace than war, but above all, that love can overcome many things and that if you love someone so much, you would die for them.

Lots of things are symbols in Romeo and Juliet. Indeed, words are symbols and the play is made up entirely of words. Similes and metaphors are a particular kind of symbol which is spelled out for you in the text. In "like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear" the jewel symbolizes Juliet. There are more g…eneral tendencies for one thing to have the same symbolic meaning. Some are conventional: "stars" are a symbol for fate (This is conventional because of the influence of astrology). In a general way, the heat of day symbolizes anger and fighting, but this is particular to this play. Benvolio uses this symbol when he says "the day is hot and the Capulets are abroad." (MORE)

Two consecutive lines of poetry thatrhyme. Example: My only love, sprung from my only hate! Too early seenunknown, and known too late! Example: Act III Scene I 137-138 Benvolio: O noble Prince, I can discover all The unlucky manage of this fatal brawl.
Shakespeare used rhymed couplets in iambic pentameter. Iambic pentameter is five beats per line. A couplet would usually convey a complete thought and could be described as a sentence in poetry. Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still, Should, without eyes, see pathways to his will! not… iambic pentameter, but a couplet still (MORE)
\nSymbolize is a loaded word... It means "representd." "$" represents money, or "MPH" represents "Miles Per Hour," but those are specific and direct things. If I showed you the color red and asked you, "What does this remind you of?" Guaranteed, you would give me a laundry list of answers. That is w…hy your question is loaded. \n. \nHow to find Symbols and their Meanings?\n. \nStep 1. What does the writer or author keep coming back to? Major Topics or Issues? Race, Identity, Love, Family, Freedom, Success, etc.\n. \nStep 2. What was the CONFLICT (problem) in the situation/plot/story?\n. \nStep 3. What did the character do to cause that problem, but hopefully resolve it?\n. \nStep 4. Is there a relationship between the character, the conflict and the Major Topics?\n. \nFIND PATTERNS!!!\n. \nNOW FOR THE LAZY ANSWER....\n. \nRomeo can represent one of 4 things...\n. \n1.

(Listen to what his friends Mercutio and Benvolio have to say about her!)\n. \n3. Cowardice- Remember how Romeo fights? He never starts them, but everyone seems to die around him, even his mother. How does he react when these people die? Tears, profuse apologies, and tread marks from his shoes...\n. \n4. Foolish Love- Would you really marry someone you just met? He and Juliet met, married, mated, and then became martyrs in less than a week! \n. \nSo, there you have it. (MORE)
"Yet I shall kill thee with much cherishing. Goodnight, goodnight. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow."
Bloody rose, dagger, poison. (Actually, a bloody rose has nothing to do with Romeo and Juliet. Roses really only come up in Juliet's famous line "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet".)
An example of an epitaph that could be used on Romeo and Juliet'stombstones could be Love will be with you forever. Another epitaphcould be One who loved too young was taken too soon.
Juliet goes to Friar Lawrence and threatens to commit suicide because she does not want to commit bigamy. That's her motivation for threatening to kill herself.
Love as Religious Worship Call me but love and I'll be new baptized" (2.2.4). -Romeo says to Juliet as a way to suggest that Juliet's love has the potential to make him "reborn." When the pair first meets, Romeo calls Juliet a "saint" and implies that he'd really like to "worship" her body (1.5….2). Not only that, but Romeo's "hand" would be "blessed" if it touched the divine Juliet's (1.5.1). Eventually, Juliet picks up on this "religion of love" and declares that Romeo is "the god of her idolatry" (2.2.12). Conclusion; Romeo is making love into a religious type of worship of worship with Juliet. (MORE)
You didn't specify that it had to be dialogue from William Shakespeare's play. So, here is some dialogue from Bernard Finkbeiner's Romeo and Juliet Romeo: Anyway, ... where shall we eat? (ROMEO notices blood on BENVOLIO'S hand) Hey, what gives? Were you in a fight? No, don't tell me. I already kno…w. It was those f****** Capulets. They love to hate us. Benvolio: Love to hate. Ha! Like eating to starve. Romeo: Are you laughing at me? 'Cause I'll knock your block off.. If you want some dialogue from William Shakespeare's play, here is some: Romeo: Pardon, good Mercutio.My business was great, and in such a case as mine a man may strain coutesy. Mercutio: That's as much as to say such a case as your constrains a man to bow in the hams. Romeo: Meaning, to curtsey Mercutio: Thou hast most kindly hit it.. (MORE)
"I do bite my thumb, Sir." Symbolizes an insult "He's a man of wax." Symbolizes that Count Paris is good-looking "So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows." Symbolizes that Juliet among the other girls (including Rosaline) looks more beautiful than all the others.

Almost all of Romeo and Juliet is in inversion but here is an example of what it looks like. Act one, scene five. Lines 125-130 Marry, Bachelor, Her mother is the lady of the house, And a good lady, and wise and virtuous. I nursed her daughter that you talked withal. I tell you, he that …can lay hold of her Shall have the chinks Notice how when she speaks, its not really in order. Of course the language is different, but the order of the words is really what's important. (MORE)
Romeo and Juliet's suicides symbolize their undying love for one another. Romeo killed himself so he could stay with Juliet forever in eternal life, and when Juliet awoke to find her love dead, she killed herself for the same reason.
Thinking of Paris as a symbol doesn't do the poor sap much justice--he is a character, not a symbol. I suppose you could imagine him symbolizing arranged marriages or something, but it takes away from the way the play is structured. Indeed, if you view the characters as symbols, you are straying fro…m the main point of the drama. (MORE)
well this story became a tragety because of Juliet so i think a bloody white rose and dagger would simbolys Juliet better for she is the pure angel that became rebelious at the idea of marriage and became the dagger who who helped shed blood for her self

Mercutio in Act II Scene 4: "By Jesu, a very good blade! a very tall man! a very good whore!" He is satirizing the a"antic, lisping, affecting fantasticoes" who overused the word "very", which meant "truly" at that time, not "extremely". It has since changed meaning as a result of the efforts of the… "fantasticoes". (MORE)
"For fair without the fair within to hide" "Among fresh female buds shall you this night/ Inherit at my house. Here all, all see/ And like her most who merit most shall be;/ Which, on more view of many, mine, being one,/ May stand in number, though in reck'ning none."
"Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch" Not what you'd expect a fatal stab wound to be described as.
Everywhere. "What light through yonder window breaks" or "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." leap to mind.
Symbol as in any symbol you've seen before. One example being the symbol of the Capulet's on Tybalt's firearm.
There is no example of omniscience in Romeo and Juliet. Omniscience in literature typically refers to a narrative type (in novels for the most part). Romeo and Juliet is a play and none of the characters are omniscient. Unless God is a character in a play, or unless there is a narrator onstage nar…rating as the play goes on, there is no omniscient perspective in drama. An omniscient perspective in literature means that the narrator knows what each character is doing and thinking. For example if I were to write "John thought that Steve smelled like garbage, and tried to avoid him. Steve just thought that John was jealous of his fantastic good looks", that is an example of an omniscient perspective. A limited omniscient perspective is when the narrator only knows the thoughts and actions of one character and what that character sees, that would look like this: "Steve noticed John turn suddenly away as he approached and thought 'He must not like to be in the presence of my magnificent beauty' and shrugged to himself". This is somewhat similar to the first person perspective, in which the narrator tells a story about him/herself. For example: "I saw Steve coming and, instead of trying to pretend I don't notice his hideous stench, I just turned and walked away". (MORE)
Tybalt is an antagonist to Romeo, since he is constantly trying to start fights with him and eventually gets him into one.
Why, she doth lie on the cheek of night like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear. One personification and one simile.
"Romeo, who you know I hate". Juliet does a lot of lying to her mother in this scene. She is trying to equivocate, but it sometimes just comes out as fibs.
Romeo and Juliet is an example of tragedy. The whole play is an example of tragedy. That's the kind of play it is, not a part of it.
A couple forbidden to love one another after they fell for each other , and cant live without one another .
Nobody makes arrows in the play. Unless you have a new definition of "fletching" that it what it means--to make arrows.
An anachronism is something which is from a different time period than its surroundings. Sort of like if you are watching a movie about Genghis Khan and someone pulls up in a tank. Or if you are watching the life of Abraham Lincoln and he talks about calling you on the cell phone. The problem is th…at Romeo and Juliet does not have a specific time setting so there is no general background to contrast with. Everything is more or less consistent with the Italy of Shakespeare's time (except of course they speak English) (MORE)
Reconciliation. Montague promises to put up a statue of Juliet andCapulet promises to put one up of Romeo. The statues represent theend of the feud between the families.
