In this Shakespeare uses metaphor. “The sweetest honey is loathsome in his own deliciousness”, this metaphor means that Romeo and Juliet’s love is sweet and nice but after a while it can go bad just like honey,if you like it but then it can go bad just like love. It’s like if you like something like love so much but if you have too much it can be bad for you, and make you ill.

  1. This is a good analysis of the meaning of this metaphor.

    Who said this in Romeo and Juliet? To whom? Why?
