Transcript of Literary Devices: Metaphor, Similes, and Personification

Night Elie Wiesel's purpose for writing this book
was to give the public a first person point of view of the Holocaust. The use of literary devices helps
the reader visualize Elie's experience
during the Holocaust. Purpose By: Elie Wiesel “Faster you swine....” (Wiesel 81). “He leapt on me, like a wild animal, hitting me in the chest, on the head, throwing me down... until I was covered in blood” (Wiesel 50). “Like a wild beast, I cleared a way for myself to the coffee cauldron" (Wiesel 101). "Never shall I forget those flames consumed my faith forever" (Wiesel 32). "Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust" (Wiesel 32). Loss of Faith “These screams which tore us to shreds” (Wiesel 24). “Our terror was about to burst the sides of the train”(Wiesel 23). “With shame in our souls, we went back to our places, gnawed by fear, in spite of ourselves” (Wiesel 25). Fear “The dead stayed in the yard under the snow, like faithful guards assassinated, without burial” (Wiesel 87). “Everything around me was dancing the dance of death” (Wiesel 84). “Pressed up against the others in an effort to keep out the cold, head empty and heavy at the same time, brain a whirlpool of decaying memories” (Wiesel 93).
