What are examples of assonance in the seven ages of man?

Probably the best one is "lined, with eyes". It is difficult, because to do it properly you should listen to the speech done in the kind of accent they had back then, which sounds a bit like the Somerset accent we associate with pirates. There is such a reading of the speech available at the site If you listen, you will find that although you might think that the word "severe" which follows "eyes" is an assonance, it actually isn't, because it sounds like "with good capon loined, with oyes sevair . . ."

What did shakespeare mean in his poem All the world's a Stage when he said with good capon lin'd?

The seven ages of man is not a poem. It's a speech given by the character Jaques in Act 2 the play As You Like It. The Duke has just pointed out that "This wide and universal theatre presents more woeful pageants than the scene wherein we play in." or in other words, there are people worse off than we are. Jaques fastens on the "wide and universal theatre" image and says that everyone is playing a part, and the parts are pretty much the same for everyone and lead toward a sad end. In the process he uses a lot of similes and some metaphors. "Fair round belly with good capon lined" is a metaphor--you don't actually line the inside of your belly like you would a coat, but you do fill the inside with food, like capons (castrated roosters).

How does shakespeare indicate that the justice is properous?
