Question: How does shakespeare use metaphor to show romeos inner thoughts in act one scene four of romeo and Juliet.
Shakespeares key if information is hidden in metaphors he’s placed through this play. He does this because it is a smooth way of delivering the inner workings of the characters minds. In scene 4 act one romeo has a dream of the night aheaduring of him . He dreams it might be bad and lead to his untimely death
In the scene romeo exlames ” He that hath stearage of my course ,direct my sail . The metaphor used here is referring to a boat. There is obvious evedance to reflect this idea because shakespeare uses terms like steerage, course and sail. When shakespeare puts “he” in the text he is referring to God. My interpritation of this line is that Romeo is basically saying only God can take me the right way.
