"ROYALS" by Lorde
Literary Devices
Literary Devices
Lorde's song, "Royals", displays many examples of a
hyperbole
. In her song, she states that "everybody is like... / tigers on a gold leash" (8). This use of exaggeration aids her idea about the wealthy's "love affair" with money and fame (10).
Literary Devices
Lorde's use of
imagery
gives the audience the perspective from her view. Through the lyrics, we experience images of people "counting [their] dollars on the train to the party" (20). This emphasizes the idea of
their poverty.
In addition, it gives the
speaker some of the
audience's pity.

WORKS CITED
Examples of
similes
are
used in Lorde's song,
"Royals". She claims that "every song is like gold
teeth, grey goose,

tripping in the bathroom" (5). In this verse, Lorde says that every song on the radio is about fame and parties. This realization of the audience supports her overall theme.

curiosity to discover the true
meaning of this modern
classic.
WHY THIS SONG?
Lorde
It is best to live your life without getting "caught up in [the world's] love affair" with money and fame (11); to be truly happy is to be content with what you are given. Money doesn't measure greatness.
