Transcript of Chapter 5: Figurative Language
Simile, Metaphor, Personification, Apostrophe, Metonymy Alyssa Adamovich
Jake Carter This is our Dog and Pony show. So... Simile: How do we define it!?
A comparison of some word or phrase
with the use of like, as, than, similar to, etc. Now, Analyze "the guitarist tunes up" What is a metaphor? you might ask. Well, it is similar to a simile, but there is no comparison/adjoining word. Now try to identify it in context. Read "the Hound". please. Personification:
giving an inanimate object human characteristics, such as when mother earth unleashes her fury, or when trees talk! AHHH! Read "the subalterns" and "dinnertime Chorus" How are we feeling so far? addressing some object that is absent, dead, or nonhuman as if it were in fact human Apostrophe Read "Bright Star" and "APostrophe to man" Metonymy and Synecdoche Using part of the object to mean all of it and the use of something closely related to what is actually meant...... ex. Piece of skirt is a derogatory term for a woman, redhead or ginger for a red-haired person, "we need more hands" as in labor because obviously if you cut off hands they would be useless in anything other than food for worms. The blindness is like a dream,
The echo of my vision is alive,
The sky was excited;
I call you Beauty,
You are a hiding figure.
The world is a white zone
I dig for a darkness,
That buries my life
I hide in the cold hill.
