Light and Dark Imagery:

“Away from light steals my heavy son, /

And private in his chamber pens himself, /

Shuts up his windows, locks fair daylight out, /

And makes himself an artificial night.

Black and portentous must this humor prove /

Unless good counsel may the cause remove” (1.1, 127-130).

Some consequence yet hanging in the stars

“Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate,

O anything of nothing first created!

O heavy lightness, serious vanity,

Misshaped chaos of well seeming forms!

Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,

Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!

This love I feel, that feel no love in this” (1.1, 166-173).

Till holy church incorporate two in one” (2.6, 36-37)
