When Juliet finds out that Tybalt has been killed and Romeo is in exile, for killing Tybalt, Juliet feels both passionate about Romeo and disappointed in both Romeo and herself, which reveal her inner struggle. In Act 3, Juliet’s Nurse comes back with this news that Tybalt is dead and that Romeo is such an awful person for killing him. Juliet fights back at the Nurse, and herself, for speaking bad about Romeo. She claims, ““Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband? Ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name, When I, thy three hours' wife, have mangled it? But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband.” (3.2.99-101). This shows that Juliet is passionate about Romeo, because first of all, she says that she was wrong to say bad things about her husband.

Romeo and Juliet has been told or shown many different ways. One would be the Romeo and Juliet 1968 version.

I will show you how all of these tragedies are different and similar to each other, and that they are not all the same as some may think.
Romeo’s light and dark imagery demonstrates how opposites help people better understand these abstract concepts. In the beginning, Romeo was rejected by his one love, Rosaline, and his father Montague has no idea what to do about Romeo’s moping:
Within the play, Shakespeare uses metaphors and imagery to show the contrasting nature of Romeo’s sadness and how Juliet is his light inside his dark depression. In Act 2 Scene 2 Romeo uses the metaphor of “It is the east and Juliet is the sun / Arise fair sun, and kill the envious moon,”(16). This is important because it shows how Romeo views Juliet. When we first meet Romeo in the play he is downcast and miserable, mainly because of the unrequited love he has for Rosaline. It puts him in a dark depression of which he sees no way out of. Thus, when he says “O she doth teach the torches to burn bright!”(13). He is saying that she is his only light in his darkness and he feels that without her light he cannot possibly continue on living. She means that much to him. Juliet is very similar in this regard, however she compares him to something else,
The concepts of yin and yang are central to Chinese religion and philosophy as a whole, including both Taoism and Confucianism. Moreover, the symbol itself is familiar worldwide to many people regardless of their knowledge of the Chinese traditions.
In the tragic love story Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare shows how although the power of love can bring positive experiences, it can also bring destruction and drastic changes to the lives of all involved. He illustrates this idea through numerous poetic devices: creative metaphors, meaningful puns, and character-related contrast. Romeo and Juliets’ love was rushed, impulsive, and created sorrow for both parties involved.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare used a fair amount of figurative language to express the feelings between Romeo and Juliet. The young minded individuals start to fall in love at a quick pace. Juliet and Romeo have uncontrolled feelings for each other and this causes them to make irrational decisions. Romeo uses metaphors and similes to compare Juliet to some of earth’s most beautiful things. Romeo declares that “It is the east, and Juliet is the sun”, by doing this he is showing Juliet’s beauty. He persuades her to come out of her bedroom by saying “Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon.” He used the moons credibility to show how he feels towards Juliet and manipulate her to come out onto the balcony to see him. While

On November 11, Theater Emory presented Romeo and Juliet and was directed by John Ammerman. Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by Shakespeare where Romeo and Juliet falls in love that cannot work because they live in families that are hostile to each other. This play incorporated the dichotomy between love and hate and tragic consequences from uncontrolled emotions. These themes were presented through character’s expressivity of their emotions through dramatic sequences and the stage designs from light and movement.
Light and dark is one of the most common motifs that is used in many famous literary works, especially Shakespeare’s. In the most subtle ways, he uses light and dark to highlight important events that shape the play Romeo and Juliet. The main characters are star-crossed lovers who have to keep their marriage a secret from their families. They come from families that fight with one another and can never keep peace. The play begins with the tragic ending, telling us what happens from the start. In Romeo and Juliet, the motif of light and dark is used to further Shakespeare’s points of light as beauty, good, and truth, and dark as a lack of beauty, bad, and lies to reflect concurrent situations in the play.

According to information gathered from the online source, Taoism or the Tao Religion (Our Ultimate Reality), the Yin and Yang represents two breaths or the chi life force. This Yin life force is the feminine principle of darkness, coolness, and dampness, while the white, the Yang, is the masculine principle of brightness, warmth, and dryness. They are not opposites, not all good, or bad, but both needed to maintain universe stability. Defined through opposition, Taoists believe in the virtues of balance and understanding.
Yin and Yang is the most universally recognizable symbol for Taoism. The symbol is a circle with one half black and the other half white. Both halves have a spot with the opposite color which represents being part of the other. Yin and Yang are two complementary, interdependent principles or phases alternating in space and time; they are emblems envoking the harmonious interplay of all pairs of opposites in the universe. (Taoism, 2007) Taoist believe yin and yang exist in all aspects of life. Some believe the white represents good and the black represents evil. If there is good there is bad, if there is wealth there is poverty and if there is woman there is man. In other words there is an opposite to everything. The universe flows in harmony without ever stopping. In chapter 42 of the Tao-Te-Ching there is a reference about yin and yang. The Tao is one, from the one come yin and yang, from these two creative energy (chi), from energy, ten thousand things, the forms of all creations, all life embodies yin and embraces yang, through their union achieving harmony. (Tao-Te-Ching, Ch. 51)
