Literary Devices
Metaphor
"Did you know there's a small furry animal hanging from your chin?"- Sharlene to Greg (27)
Onomatopoeia
"The spoon tingles against the inside of the glass, so I stop stirring." (31)
Hyperbole
"Living here, in the land of sheer boredom, can make a normally sane person want to rip off her clothes and leap to her death from the top of a grain elevator." (26)
Simile
Foil
Greg and his father are each other's foil.
"... like a scrawny bird about to fall off his perch." (29)
Media Connection
We chose the song "Let Me Be Myself" by 3 Doors Down as our media connection.
Connections to the Theme
Literary Connection
Identity
By: Julio Noboa Polanco
Let them be as flowers
always watered, fed, guarded, admired,
but harnessed to a pot of dirt.
I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed,
clinging on cliffs, like an eagle
wind-wavering above high, jagged rocks.
To have broken through the surface of stone,
to live, to feel exposed to the madness
of the vast, eternal sky, to be swayed by the breezes
of an ancient sea
carrying my soul, my seed,
beyond the mountains of time or into the abyss of
the bizarre
I'd rather be unseen, and if
then shunned by everyone,
than to be a pleasant smelling flower,
growing in clusters in the fertile valley,
where they're praised, handled, and plucked
by greedy human hands
I'd rather smell of musty green stench
than of sweet fragrant lilac.
If I could stand alone, strong and free,
I'd rather be a tall, ugly weed.
Thanks for listening!
