Figurative Language Project Josee Young
10-9-12 Personification obvious and intentional exaggeration. "Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No. This my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red." Original Example "The blizzard swallowed the small town." From the novel "Frakenstein" "...The moon gazed on my midnight labours, while, with unrelaxed and breathless eagerness, I pursued nature to her hiding place." A figure of speech that compares two different things, usually by employing the words "like" or "as". Simile used in poetry Simile I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, LIKE a FROG
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog! "I'm Nobody! Who are You?" By: Emily Dickinson "The baby was as delicate as a flower." Original Example "The kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field."

Original ‘I am the Good Shepherd’ [John 10:11] Onomatopoeia The use of words that imitate the sounds associated with the objects or actions they refer to. "Chug, chug, chug. Puff, puff, puff. Ding-dong, ding-dong. The little train rumbled over the tracks."
("Watty Piper" [Arnold Munk], The Little Engine That Could) The fireworks at the parade made a loud boom! Original "SNAP!" "Crackle!" "POP!" Rice Krisipies Cereal ad slogan. Imagery A set of mental pictures or images. "I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils." "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" by William Wordsworth I bought a beautiful, pink dress with pearl beading yesterday. Original CLICK BELOW!! THE END
