An Introduction to Anacoluthon
Anacoluthon (derives from the Greek word anakolouthon, literally means “lacking sequence”), is a figure of speech which consists in the abrupt disruption in syntaxOpens in new window resulting from two non-parallel grammatical constructions.
Anacoluthon invariably occurs as a result of unexpected interruption or discontinuity in the flow of syntactic structure within a sentence resulting to illogical coherence of thought.
To simplify this definition, it's the act of starting a sentence one way, but ending it midway by introducing an inconsistent subject that is entirely different from the start-up subject.
Like in other Shakespearean works, here Williams Shakespeare deployed anacoluthon to blend this verse with style and vibrancy.
