Is Shakespeare's plays an example?

So does Shakespeare use a lot of Hyperbaton?

Would you say this an example (from Othello)

'Good name in man and woman..is the immediate jewel of their souls.'
'He that filches from me my good name robs me of the which not enriches him and make me poor indeed.'

Syntax is simply referring to the structure of a sentence, not a specific technique.

The Poetess

My poetry class requires that we know the literary devices, use them in our writing AND present the pieces we write in front of the class as well as for video that the whole world can see. But as poets and spoken word artists it comes with the territory. :-)

Hyperbaton and Inversion

Is there a definable difference (between hyperbaton and inversion)?
Thanks

Difference?

Yes there is a difference. Hyperbaton is for everyday speech and writing, such as characters talking, novels, short stories, etc.
Inversion is only for poetry.

What's the difference between Hyperbaton and Circimlocution??

Hyperbaton and Cirumlotion

Hyperbaton doesn't actually increase the length of a phrase at all. It just changes the words around a bit.
Cirumlotion lengthens the sentence on purpose using long wording and stuff

That's a perfect example,

That's a perfect example, since Yoda always flips around the sentence structure of his thoughts.
