I fear too early, for my mind misgives
Some consequence yet hanging in the stars
Shall bitterly begin his fearful date
With this night’s revels, and expire the term
Of a despisèd life closed in my breast
By some vile forfeit of untimely death.
But he that hath the steerage of my course,
Direct my sail. On, lusty gentlemen.
how dose shakespeare use language to convey his ideas about fate in
act 1 scene 4 of romeo and juliet
shakespeare uses metaphor to convey his idea that romeo is controlled by a higher power,like a god
he does this having romeo refer to himself as a vessel which is being captained by god ”he that hath steerage of my course ,direct my sail.” this proves that shakespeare is referring to god because the capetian is the helmsman of a shio who directs it course . romeo has decided, in spite of his misgivings, to take the risk of following his fate
