in “Romeo and Juliet” makes Shakespeare work to live to the hype. The form entices the heart of the audience as they seem to sympathize with the protagonist’s ideal, unconditional, and universal romance. In every scene covered by Shakespeare, he tends to express the ease in which messages can go wrong. For instance, when Romeo is briefed on Juliet's death, he begins to think that he has all the possible facts to prove Juliet's demise. For that reason, Romeo plans to kill himself with poison. One of the best speeches of Romeo is one he delivers in the tomb where he gives finality, meaning, and dignity to the act he seems to execute. The play character ization and speech have been covered throughout the whole theater, dance, literature, and music. In the play, there exists a particular musical intense alternation of mood and flow that makes the speech better, such as, Mercutio case. In the story, Mercutio is quick to issue worthy advice to Romeo whenever he needs guidance. The audience can argue that Mercutio says most of the wise quotes in the entire play.

SHAKESPEARE'S LANUGAGE AND STYLE 4 engage in plenty of dialogue, and a repetitive expression knows him of “A plague a’ both your houses!” Comparison of Blank Verse to Oxymoron’s and Strong Vocabulary His use of Oxymoron and strong vocabulary play a major role in inticing the audience to be drawn in to his characters live. In the play “Romeo and Juliet,” Shakespeare uses oxymoron to create a dramatic effect. Romeo and Juliet share the rhyming couplet of “some say the lark and to more light and light, more dark and dark our woes.” They can read each other’s minds and symbolize to the audience how deeply they love one another. In this context, the antithesis balances the night and the day. In essence, the audience begins to sympathize with Romeo and understands that despite his woes, he seems happy. The romantic dialogue between Romeo and Juliet does not suggest that there is no time. In the phrase “hunting thee hence with hunt’s-up to the day” displays a happy to Juliet. Shakespeare adds an imperative tone, “O now be gone” to give another impression to the audience (Hildebrand, 2015). In this context, the audience empathizes with the brave attempt of the two and the separating feuds they receive from their families. When the nurse enters hastily, a decision is made for Romeo to leave. Shakespeare use oxymoron to display the complex emotions of the characters in the play helps to have a lasting effect on his audience . For instance, when Benvolio provides advice to Romeo to leave his relationship with Rosalind, Romeo replies melodramatically as “here’s much to do with hate, but more with love. Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate.” The oxymoron used shows the raging infatuation Romeo has for his crush (Shakespeare, 1997). The infatuation strength is portrayed by portraying hate. In this context, hatred is one of the negative emotions but a stronger positive feeling of love. Such effects often make the reader to experience the effect
