There are examples of ellipsis (Lines 51-52: “It was no doing of mine that he came here”), alliteration (Lines 54-55: “service as a seer, a healer of hurts”), antithesis (Lines 50-51: “your birth is good but your words evil”), and rhetorical question (Lines 52-56: “Who is likely to invite a stranger from a foreign country, unless it be one of those who can do public service as a seer, a healer of hurts, a carpenter, or a bard who can charm us with his
