Five Poetic Devices
Transcript of Five Poetic Devices
Symbolism and Personification
Example of a metaphor:
She is a Cheetah.
This metaphor is not saying this person is literally a cheetah, it means this person is fast
Symbolism is something that has a deeper meaning then it would appear. An example would be this P to the right. This P stands for Christ, It ia not just a fancy P. An example of a symbol in literature would be: The flower from the
Invention of Love
. The flower represented the love between the man and the women and when the flower died, so did their love for each other.
An onomatopoeia is a word associated with a sound. An example would be:
Drip ,Drip, Drip
went the water from the faucet. The word drip is associated with water hitting the ground.
A simile, somewhat like a metaphor, is a comparison between to things. The only difference between them is similes use the words "like" and "as" while metaphors don't. An example of a simile is: It was as soft
a cloud. The simile is saying that "it" was very soft like a cloud not that "it" was a cloud.

Personification is when a nonhuman object receives human like qualities. An example would be: The sun smiled upon us. This doesn't literally mean the sun is smiling, it means that the sun came out and you can see it a feel it's warmth.
