Aporia is an example of a rhetorical trope.

Soliloquy from Hamlet by William Shakespeare
To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, "tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish"d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there"s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
