What are the figure of speeches used in sonnet 130?
1 Answer | add yours
The most prominent figure of speech in this poem are the antithetical similes and metaphors. Rather than comparing two things in a positive way, Shakespeare offers a sort of parody by contrasting things in a negative way. Consider even the first line as an example.
