In Sonnet 55, Shakespeare's diction alternates between austere in regard to the realities of the world and emotionally soaring when referring to his love.

Example of personification:

"Not marble, nor the gilded monuments . . . shall outlive".

Shakespeare's syntax, or arrangement of words, is one of elegance.
