here are a number of oppositions in the play personified by Juno and Boyle (the paycock). These include the divine versus animality, work versus leisure, female versus male, war versus peace, and free will versus environmental determinism. The conflict between these polarities stress the need for constructive synthesis. Unfortunately, Juno and Boyle are unable to see past their own points of view to find a middle ground, and as a result the family is destroyed.
