(a) Examples of alliteration

  • When wasteful war shall statues overturn
  • Not marble, nor the glided monuments
  • But you shall shine more bright in these contents.
  • Even in the eyes of all posterity
  • That wear this world out to the ending doom.

(b) Use of personification

  • When wasteful war shall statues
  • And broils root out the work of masonry.
  • Here war and broils are shown to have powerful hands that are capable of causing destruction.
  • Your praise shall still find room.

Praise has been shown as a person taking his place somewhere.
