Would this be an example of figurative language? Sorry, I am really terrible at this kind of thing, and knowing what is right and wrong really helps me.
"O, gentlemen, see, see! dead Henry's wounds Open their congeal'd mouths and bleed afresh!"
Figurative language is the use of different devices to make sure the reader is understanding and feeling exactly what the writer/poet wants him/her to.
Usually, these are vivid images that are meant to "draw pictures" in your mind as you read.
In what you have quoted above, which words are not normally used to describe words? Those are the basis of the figurative language (metaphor, in this case) in these lines.
Thank you! :)
You're very welcome.
