Romeo And Juliet – Act 1, Scene 4, Paragraph.

Statement Shakespeare uses metaphors to express Romeos predicted fate and that he is controlled by a higher being, in Romeo and Juliet he is referring to God 

Example Shakespeare does this by having Romeo refer to himself as a ship, and God being the captain of his ship. “he that hath the steerage of my course, direct my sail, on lusty gentlemen”. 

Explanation This has proved that Shakespeare is referring to god as the captain of Romeo’s ship, the captain being the helmsman of the ship that directs Romeo’s future, Romeo has decided to follow his fate, in spite of his misgivings and attend the party at the house of Capulet.
