I Love Homework Questions

I don't like doing people's homework for them, mind you, but sometimes it's fun to look at the questions.

Cite three allusions to Greek and Roman mythology used in Act 1 of Romeo and Juliet


The "Phoebus' lodging" one would be obvious, if not for the fact that it's not in Act 1.  How many can you think of WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE SCRIPT?

Without looking at the script, and from Shakespeare's Act I, here we go:

Benvolio: We'll have no Cupid hoodwinked with a scarf, scaring the ladies like a crow-keeper...

Mercutio: You are a lover! Borrow Cupid's wings and soar with them above a common bound...

Romeo: She hath Dian's wit.
