Ender's Game By Orson Scott Card
Transcript of Ender's Game By Orson Scott Card
An example of am idiom was found on page 276 paragraph 2 in Ender's Game. The example is,” ‘Because I’m going to grind you down to dust, if I can.'" This is an example of an idiom because this is an expression that he is saying. He is not actually going to grind the other person to dust. This is just a saying, but it is also a threat. This use of an idiom helped me to understand that the other person is threatening the other person and might hurt him if he gets the chance to do so.
An example of imagery was found on page 280 paragraph 5 in Ender’s Game. The example is,” She writhed in his hands, fought to come up, but at last was still. He dragged her out of the lake and onto the raft, where she lay with her face in the rictus of death. He screamed and wept over her, crying again and again that is was a game, a game, he was only playing!-“ This is an example of imagery because it is using one of the five senses that we possess to describe something to us in the book. This use of imagery helped me to understand what the scene was like and what Ender was doing with Valentine.
An example of alliteration was found on page 242 paragraph 14 in Ender's Game. The example is,” ‘He’s smart enough to take the time it takes, but he's going to win his way into power-if not right now, then later.'" This is an example of alliteration because it repeats the same initial letter which is the letter "t". This use of alliteration helped me to understand that Peter, who is Ender's older brother and is smart and evil, is able to take however long he needs but eventually he will get the power that he wants.
An example of a simile was found on page 242 paragraph 9 in Ender’s Game. The example is “And he touched her cheek so gently that she wanted to cry. Like the touch of his soft baby hand when he was still an infant.” This is an example of a simile because it is comparing Ender’s hand to a soft baby hand. This use of a simile helped me to understand that Ender’s hands are still as soft as when they were when he was baby.

An example of a metaphor was found on page 241 paragraph 10 in Ender’s Game. The example is “Peter always understood her, or at least thought he did, but he was such a moral sinkhole that she never had to feel embarrassed when he guessed even her worst thoughts.” This is an example of a metaphor because it was comparing Peter to a sinkhole without using the words like or as. This use of a metaphor helped me to understand what peter was like and how he acted and what Valentine thought what Peter is, which is a moral sinkhole.
