Yes, there are a few examples of literary devices used in Act III, scene iii of "Romeo and Juliet". 

In line 2, Friar Lawrence says, "Affliction is enamour'd of thy parts." (A. III, s. iii) -- This is an example of personification.  In line 3, he then continues by saying, "And thou art wedded to calamity." (A. III, s. iii).  This is an example of a hyperbole.In line 5, Romeo says, "What sorrow craves acquaintance at my hand." (A. III, s. iii) which is another example of personification.  In addition to these three examples, the entire scene is full of imagery, as is most of Shakespearean plays.
