What literary device is Shakespeare employing when Malcolm says, "Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell"?

  • literary -

    Isn't this a metaphor comparing angels with stars?

  • literary -

    This is just saying in short...The angels are still(bright..idk how to say it...kind..perfect..wise...High..mighty)even though the brightest fell. This is comparing/refering to the story of the devil in the bibble...where he was the most loved angel by god and he fell

    you are retarded of course it is a metaphor why would you even ask that

  • literary -

    Donnie, there is nothing wrong with asking for help. You should be ashamed seeing that you gave the wrong answer as well.

    To answer the question, the literary device is allusion. The quote is referring to the Bible. It means that even though the greatest angel (Lucifer) "fell" (became evil) other angels are still "bright" (pure, holy). Just because one went astray doesn't mean all the others will follow.
