Literary Devices By: Deborah Smith,
Lindsey Wind, and
Aliceeya Smith Figures of Speech Forms of Literature Flashback Foil Characters Foreshadowing Hyperbole Simile Personification Metaphor Diction Farce Literary Elements - light, humorous play in which the plot depends upon a skillfully exploited situation rather than the development of a character A figure of speech were you are comparing to things using the words like or as. Personification is giving non-living things living characteristics. A hyperbole is obvious or intentional exaggeration Definition: Someone who serves as a contrast to another character, usually the main character. A foil character is usually the villain of the story. Definition: To show or indicate, beforehand, something that will happen in the future. - style of speaking or writing as dependent upon choice of words A figure of speech were you are comparing two things with out using the words like or as. Definition: A device in the narrative of a book by which an event is taking place before the present time to show something that happened in the past. Fable - story not founded on fact - example: Jack and the Beanstalk Finding Nemo was written by Andrew Stanton. An example of a flashback would be in Finding Nemo when Marlin sees Nemo hurt. - example: In Jersey Shore each character has different diction, or style of speaking. Even though Brennan is really bleeding, he is not bleeding as much as Dale says he is. Also the situation isn't as bad as Dale Claims it is. - example: scene from I Love Lucy Everyone loves Toy Story. But we all know toys don't do as much as these toys do.To me this is a great example of personification. Hey There Delilah by: Plain White T's
...Time Square can't shine as bright as you. I swear its true. This part of the song is a simile because he is comparing how bright Delilah shines to Time Square. An example of a foil character is Jafar from Aladdin because he is the villain of the story. Aladdin was written by James Fujii, Patrick Ventura, Rebecca Rees, Kevin Lima, and Ed Gombert. Payphone By: Maroon 5
"All of my change i spent on you." This sentence in this song is a metaphor simply because he is comparing his time he spent on a girl to change at a payphone. Symbolism and Symbols The practice of representing things by symbols, or investing things with symbolic meaning or character. Types of Metaphors An example of foreshadowing is in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest, the pirates are stuck in a bone cage. You can guess that they will somehow escape. Direct: A metaphor that uses "is".
Ex: Dave is a bear Implied: A metaphor that doesn't use the word "is".
Ex: Someone woke Dave up from his hibernation Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest was written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott. Extended: introduced and further developed through out all or part of the literary work.
Ex: The Road not Taken By.
Robert Frost use two roads as his extended metaphor. Give You Hell by All American Rejects symbolises his feelings toward his ex girlfriend. Its basically stating that he hope she freaks out and be heart broken when she sees his face.
