Mood of the speaker:
There are many three dots in the poem. Readers should think of the author's idea together with the pensive speaker.
The author used lexical repetitions to emphasize a significant image; more is repeated.
The author used the same words agonistic, those, more at the beginnings of some neighboring stanzas. The figure of speech is a kind of anaphora.
The poet repeated the same word barbaric at the end of some neighboring stanzas. The poetic device is a kind of epiphora.
