These famous lines from Act 3 scene 2 of the famous tragedy Romeo and Juliet, which was written by William Shakespeare, are great examples of using an oxymoron.
An oxymoron is a literary device that uses and integrates contradictory words for the purpose of revealing a paradox or illustrating a rhetoric point. In general, oxymorons are used for various purposes. At times, they are used to create drama for the reader or listener, but most of the times, it is used to attract the attention of the reader or listener forcing him or her to stop, think and ponder about the words.
The correct answer to this question is A, Benvolio. He is a fictional character from the drama Romeo and Juliet, which was written by Shakespeare. Benvolio is Romeo's cousin. He tries to be a peacemaker in the drama and trying to prevent violence between the families of the Montague's and Capulet's.
Ultimately, he failed. Benvolio is very kind and is always thinking of others, especially in trying to protect Romeo. His protection does help because it prevented Romeo from receiving the death penalty. He also had a part in Romeo going to the party where he fell in love with Juliet at.
