Read the excerpt from Act I of Hamlet. Ghost: Upon my secure hour thy uncle stole, With juice of cursed hebona in a vial, And in the porches of mine ears did pour The leperous distilment; whose effect Holds such an enmity with blood of man That swift as quicksilver it courses through The natural gates and alleys of the body. Which correctly analyzes the use of figurative language in the excerpt? The simile compares the poison to a fast-moving, toxic element, emphasizing its deadliness. The metaphor compares the uncle to a poisonous plant, which illustrates his deadly intent. The personification of the vial makes it seem more lethal. The apostrophe allows the ghost to address the evil uncle.
