Shakespeare uses language that is dark, “rank”, and “gross” which help create the sombre mood that Hamlet is in. He also uses similes, and metaphors to make it obviously clear the point he is trying to get across. Shakespeare seems to use these techniques to make the difference between the two objects as blatant as possible, as shown by the Hyperion/satyr comparison. Allusions are also used heavily throughout in order to give his ideas more backing and support, especially referring to past mythology with Hyperion, Hercules, and the satyrs.
The overall mood/tone of this soliloquy is a very personal and emotional one since it is really the first time that Hamlet has revealed his inner thoughts so openly. It accomplishes its objective of revealing the deep thoughts of Hamlet and his inner struggle with amazing proficiency, and helps the reader to understand the basis for his actions throughout the rest of the play.
