    Default Query re Shakespeare's writng techniques

    Three writing techniques in this monologue. Eg. foreshadowing, symbolism, hyperbole

    PRINCE
    Rebellious subjects, enemies to peace, Profaners of this neighbour-stained steel,-- Will they not hear? What, ho! you men, you beasts, That quench the fire of your pernicious rage With purple fountains issuing from your veins, On pain of torture, from those bloody hands Throw your mistemper'd weapons to the ground, And hear the sentence of your moved prince. Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word, By thee, old Capulet, and Montague, Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets, And made Verona's ancient citizens Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments, To wield old partisans, in hands as old, Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate: If ever you disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace. For this time, all the rest depart away: You Capulet; shall go along with me: And, Montague, come you this afternoon, To know our further pleasure in this case,
    To old Free-town, our common judgment-place. Once more, on pain of death, all men depart.

    Hi,
    This is not an automated service. Are you asking for us to do your homework?
    Firstly, are you having trouble understanding what foreshadowing, symbolism, and hyperbole mean?
    Let us know what you're thinking, and we might be able to help.

    It would help if we knew what it is you want to know. What is your question?

    If this is an assignment, then we ask that you make some attempt to do it, post your suggestions, and then we can comment.
