"Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake thy gory locks at me"

"Avaunt! and quit my sight! let the earth hide thee!"
I think the first one is a rhetorical question which uses a metaphor, with 'neptune's ocean' or just exaggeration to emphasise the extent of his guilt.
Not sure if there actually are any literary devices in the others. Hope this helps.
