Figurative Language: The Little Red Riding Hood
Transcript of Figurative Language: The Little Red Riding Hood
You walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry." (Says The Wolf)
As you can see the story "The Little Red Riding Hood" and other stories, are popular for their figurative language. A good story always has figurative language and without it in general, our conversations would be very boring.
" "Good-day, Little Red Riding Hood," said he (The Wolf)
Then just as he was going to fire at him, it occurred to him that the wolf might have devoured the grandmother, and that she might still be saved, so he did not fire, but took a pair of scissors, and began to cut open the stomach of the sleeping wolf.
When he had made two snips, he saw the Little Red Riding Hood shining, and then he made two snips more, and the little girl sprang out, crying, "Ah, how frightened I have been. How dark it was inside the wolf."
The Story is filled with Figurative Language
So he walked for a short time by the side of Little Red Riding Hood.
These are examples of personification because the wolf is behaving as a human would.
This is a Simile, because it compares two things using like or as.
"Oh, but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have."( Said little red riding hood)
These are Metaphors,because they compares two nouns without using like or as.
This is an example of a hyperbole because it exaggerates a situation that occured. One does not survive when swallowed by a wolf and the fact the they were perfectly fine is impossible. They would have to be chewed up.
The wolf lifted the latch, the door sprang open, and without saying a word he went straight to the grandmother's bed, and devoured her. Then he put on her clothes, dressed himself in her cap, laid himself in bed and drew the curtains.
"But the grandmother saw what was in his thoughts."( Cannot actually read his mind.)
"What a tender young creature. What a nice plump mouthful."
