He begins both tales drawing forth our contempt for the matters at hand, then ends both tales with images that arouse our pity. Throughout each story, our emotions sway between pity and disgust. Even though incest disgusts us, we sympathize with Byblis and Myrrha as they seek incestuous loves. Byblis' broken heart arouses our sympathy, yet Myrrha's "fulfilled heart" disgusts us. Ovid devalues our sympathy by showing how unstable we are with our emotions.

She expresses how her feelings change from hurt to anger and how heavy pain can really be. Sappho uses physical movement to express her emotions in different directions. She also emphasizes how she sees revenge is the ultimate goal in order to recover from that pain.
An oxymoron is usually a phrase, divided into two parts. Each part is contradictory to the other and the result is a phrase of striking expression. An example of this would be, "O loving hate." The words love and hate are opposite emotions, so when placed together they emphasise and heighten the feelings of Romeo, who is describing his love for Rosalind and Rosalind's failure to return his affections.

Throughout the entirety of the poem, the word “love” is frequently used. This is made apparent in the second stanza in which Poe expresses “ we loved with a love that was more than love” (Poe, 9). By using “love/ loved” multiple times it effectively demonstrates the relationship between the two (American Writer).
The simile contrasting peace and hell, reveals a negative insight into the ugliness of human nature and further consolidates the existence of violence. The unpleasant introduction to the beginning of the play and the prologue brings the audience to witness the deep seated hatred that is generated from the family’s feud.

You can write about the destructive language against herself, and how it portrays her self hatred, or lack of self esteem, which each individual has experienced at some point in their life so it creates a connection between the poet and the reader
