Pity you ancient stones those tender babes whom envy hath immured within your walls .What figure of speech?

Dear Student, 

The correct answer is 'apostrophe'.

Apostrophe is a figure of speech in which the speaker addresses someone who cannot respond. This is because the person being spoken to is either inanimate or dead. Here, the speaker is speaking to stones. Stones are inanimate objects. They cannot respond to the speaker.
