I need help with a quote PLEASE!!


To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

this is what was said by Macbeth in act 5, scene 5, in lines 21-30

select a literary device (metaphor,imagery,simile) and explain how Macbeth uses this literary device in these lines. agree or disagree and interpret the quote.

*******please help me with this tanku so much!!*******
