In Shakespear's Romeo and Juliet, what are some different types of literary devices that can be found in Act 3, scene 2? (with examples please)
Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,
Toward Phoebus' lodging. Such a wagoner

The following are examples of personification:
The gray-eyed morn smiles on
the frowning night,/ Check‟ring the eastern clouds
with streaks of light (Act 2, scene 3)
Oh that deceit should dwell in such a beautiful place
The following are examples of oxymorons:
Beautiful tyrant, fiend angelical!
Dove-feathered raven, wolvish ravening lamb!
The following are examples of metaphors:
Whiter than new snow on a raven's back
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
