Transcript of Bohemian Rhapsody (Literary Devices)

A Literary Device Analysis Bohemian Rhapsody Metaphor Allusion "Caught in a landslide" Repetition "Because I'm easy come, easy go, little high, little low"

"No, no, no, no, no, no no- Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go" "Bismillah! No- we will not let you go- let him go"

"Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me" By: Kaela van der Vaart Means that the person (Freddie Mercury) is in the middle of too many events happening at once, without control. The phrase is a metaphor because Freddie does not mean that he is literally caught in a landslide, because then he wouldn't be singing. Repetition is used in the obvious manners read to the left. Bismillah is Arabic for "in the name of God" and alludes to prayer in moments of need. Beelzebub is another name for the devil or Satan, and refers to the fact that he believes he is such a sinner that he needs his own personal devil. Euphemism "My time has come" This is a term used to replace the "offensive" term "I'm dying". Oxymoron "Little high, little low" The term "little high" is an oxymoron because there is no "little" high, high is high, and there's nothing "little" about it. Hyperbole "So you think you can love me and leave me to die" This is a hyperbole because it is exaggerated.

Fact: He will not actually die because she left. Alliteration "“Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind” The hard "g" is repeated multiple times in this phrase.
