Semantic Field:

A semantic field is a technique used by writers to keep a certain image persistent in the reader’s mind. Shakespeare uses this technique in Romeo and Juliet, for example, the lines between 96-103 where Mercutio percieves dreams by telling Romeo that he has complete control of his actions and dreams and they are just “a lie sprung from a sleeping brain”. ’Which are the children of an idle brain/Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,’ this means the dreams are just children of a sleeping brain and are nothing but a useless impossible idea.
