Poetic Techniques
Metaphors
A word or phrase meaning one kind of object
or idea is used in place of another to suggest
a similarity between them.

Examples:
A ship’s anchor is an iron claw
A mirror is a deep pool
A mobile phone is a tracking device
Metaphor
SIMILES
PERSONIFICATION
Similes make a comparison between two unlike things using ‘like’ or ‘as’.

For example:
He ran as fast as a black panther.

Here a boy’s speed is being compared to a fast
animal. It creates an image in our minds of
someone trying to get away very quickly.

Personification means giving an object human like characteristics or qualities.

For example:
The bare tree shivered in the winter wind
Alliteration
Alliteration is the repetition of a consonant sound at the beginning of two or more neighbouring words.

Examples:

The repetition of ‘W’ in wild and woolly

The repetition of ‘B’ in a babbling brook


Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds in words that are close to each other.

Example:

The plate was shapely and well made.

I must confess that in my quest I felt depressed and restless.
Assonance


Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds in words that are close to each other.

Example:

The plate was shapely and well made.

I must confess that in my quest I felt depressed and restless.
ONOMATOPOEIA
Onomatopoeia is the use of words that sound like the action they represent. Poet’s use onomatopoeia to bring their images to life.

For example:

The buzz of the saw

The creak of the door
The feelings of the composer. These feelings are conveyed through word choice and imagery:

“I move into an amazing world.”

(Tone is one of awe, appreciation and wonder.)
