. Read the following line from Romeo’s monologue in Act II, Scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet, where Shakespeare employs personification:
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she:
Be not her maid, since she is envious…

In this quote, Romeo refers to Juliet as the sun and Rosaline as the moon. What does Romeo intend to say in these lines? (1 point)
Romeo says he is now in love with Juliet instead of Rosaline.
Romeo says that Rosaline is more beautiful than Juliet.
Romeo says that Juliet is envious of Rosaline.
Romeo says he has love for Juliet and Rosaline. (This one)???

  1. The question left out a very important line. This should be the whole excerpt:

    But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
    It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
    Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
    Who is already sick and pale with grief,
    That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.
    Be not her maid since she is envious.


    Now you need to re-think your answer.

  2. I thought it was A but wasn't sure thoughts?
