    You should list the ones you've already found, so people will know to skip them.

    the ones i already found

    1.the worshipped sun peered forth
    2.greifs of my own lie heavy
    3.smoke raised with a fume of sighs
    4.happy masks that kiss fair ladies' brows
    5.the earth hath swallowed all my hopes

    remember that i only need them in act 1 so your not looking through the entire play
    if pretty girls make graves, would i make a good one?

    Can anyone help me?

    For each of the five acts in the play, I have to find 4 examples of metaphor or personification (5 acts x 4 examples= 20 total examples from the book).

    I have to give the Metaphor OR Personification and I have to cite the specific Act and Scene

    Can anyone help?

    Which acts were those from?

    Plus, I found some more.

    1. "Earth-treading stars that make dark heaven light", Scene 2
    2. "Peer'd forth the golden window of the East", Scene 1

    Maybe that'll help you.

    Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
    Who is already sick and pale with grief [...]
    Be not her maid, since she is envious;
    Her vestal livery is but sick and green, (l. 4-8)

    Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven,
    Having some business, do entreat her eyes (l.15-16)
    the lazy-pacing clouds (l.31)
    the bosom of the air (l.32)
    And what love can do that dares love attempt (l.68)
    night's cloak (l.75)
    Love [...] He lent me counsel, and I lent him eyes" (l.80-81)
