The answer to the meterphor.

I think Mercutio is using metaphor to compare his day dreams to the wind.
“Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south”
Mercutio is using the wind to illustrate the unpredictability of day dreams. Wind goes North then South as his dreams go one way then another. The metaphor also shows that there is nothing to get hold of, no physical thing to touch like wind itself.
“Which is as thin of substance as the air”
The effect is that it seams to say that Mercutio is very confused even panicked.

Metaphor Activity

Your task is to identify the metaphor present in the following excerpt and then write a paragraph that explains the metaphor and its effect on the meaning of the passage it is embedded in.

MERCUTIO

True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air
And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.

Feel free to watch the presentation again from this lesson to remind you of how to approach a passage that contains a metaphor:
