    Despite not being a poem per se, this extract has a myriad of literary devices, some of which are as follows:

    1. Syncope: The omission of the letter ‘e’ can be seen in the word ‘answer’d’ to maintain the rhythm.
    2. Repetition: Brutus has been called an ‘honourable’ man repeatedly for added emphasis and with no less sarcasm by Antony.
    3. Alliteration: A couple of examples would be ‘sterner stuff’ and ‘brutish beasts’.
