“How art thou out of breath, when thou hast breath to say to me that thou out of breath?”

“Come, civil night, thou sober suited matron in all black”
Romeo and Juliet appear to only meet at night- this is because there is no one around and it is peaceful. The use of the phrase ‘sober suited night’ is related to the idea of a nurse- this suggests that Juliet still seeks comfort in the idea of a nurse.
“Beautiful Tyrant” “Fiend angelical”
When Romeo kills tybalt- Juliet doesn’t know how to react as she loves both parties so uses oxymorons to describe Romeo. Again relates to her confusion.
