Bob sanders 11 February 2011 Light and Dark Imagery In the story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are from rivaling families the Montague and the Capulets. When Romeo crashes a Capulet party he finds a girl named Juliet and they fall in love with each other. As the story progresses, Shakespeare alludes to the symbolism of light and dark creating metaphors and similes to show imagery for the reader When Romeo meets Juliet at the party he gets butterflies in his stomach, but after the party it is the complete opposite. When Lady Montague is looking for her son Romeo she asks Mr. Montague and he replies, “ ‘Away from the light steals home my heavy son, And private in his chamber pens himself, Shuts up his windows, locks far daylight out ( Shakespeare.1.i.145-147).’ ” This is an example of a quote using light and dark imagery.

As a result of their brief meeting at the party, they marry. Friar Laurence marries them because he believes that the two families can live in peacefulness not in

The last archetype I chose for Romeo was the fall. Romeo fits this archetype because after marrying Juliet (the love of his life) He gets an incomplete message from his trusty servant. This sends Romeo furious and his emotions in an uproar. Romeo goes to see if the news is true. When he arrived at the family chamber he sees her laying there still, he gives her one last gentle kiss on her lips.

The dilemma of Juliet being a Capulet and Romeo a Montague prevents them from easily being in a relationship together. As the play progresses some unfortunate misunderstandings lead to their ultimate death.
