What literary devices do you see in this monologue? For example is there figurative language or symbolism? How do these literary devices contribute to a deeper meaning of this monologue? what specifically do they tell you about the character speaking or about the subject matter the character is talking about?

-> Act 3 Scene 4
Desdemona: I prithee, do so.
Something, sure, of state,
Either from Venice, or some unhatched practice
Made demonstrable here in Cyprus to him,
Hath puddle his clear spirit; and in such cases
Men’s natures wrangle with inferior things,
Though great ones are their object. ‘Tis even so;
For let our finger ache, and it indues
Our other, healthful members even to a sense
Of pain. Nay we must think men are not gods,
Nor of them look for such observancy
As fits the bridal. Beshrew me much, Emilia,
I was, unhandsome warrior as I am,
Arraigning his unkindness with my soul;
But now I find I had suborned the witness,
And he’s indicted falsely.
