There are many examples of literary devices in Macbeth.  Here is a useful description of different literary devices used in Shakespeare.  For example, there is a metaphor.

The Thane of Cawdor lives. Why do you dress me

In borrow'd robes?(115) (Act 1, Scene 3, p. 15)

Macbeth asks Ross why he is calling him Thane of Cawdor.  By “borrowed robes” he means the title does not really belong to him and he does not understand why Ross is calling him that.
