Could someone please find me 2 metaphors and four hyperbolies from "Taming of the Shrew" from this following part: Starting from " And twenty caged nightingales do sing:Or wilt thou sleep?" to "She was the fairest creature in the world; and yet she is inferior to none" (line 37-69 in Induction, scene 2) There should be 2 metaphors and 4 hyperboles in that following text. Here is a link to the text online: http://www.online-literature.com/shakespeare/shrew/2/ Could you also explain what these poetic devices add to these lines (37-69) ? Thank you very much I really need the help!
This is the part of the frame story in the play where Christopher Sly is dressed up and told by many that he is indeed a nobleman when he is equal to the town drunk. It is part of the entertainment and a huge practical joke on Sly, who of course, isn't easily convinced of his new position in society.
You are looking for two metaphors--which are comparisons between two unlike things. The most obvious would have to be the comparison of Sly to a Lord. They keep asking him what he wants and loves and they will bring it to him...
