Literary Devices
Fifth Example
Figurative Language - Personification
When Jonas receives his job, the Chief Elder
foreshadows
pain. She goes on about how Jonas is going to experience pain that no one in the community has ever felt before.
I find it
ironic
how, at the beginning of the story, Jonas and the rest of his family try so hard to save Gabriel, but when the Committee says that Gabriel has to be Released, they just accept it. No questions asked.
I think the light eyes
symbolize
that the person who has them is able to receive memories. The Giver, Jonas, and Gabriel all have light eyes, and they all are (or were) able to receive memories. Also, when Jonas and the Giver are making a plan for Jonas to escape, they both mentioned a female Six that had light eyes. Jonas was saying that she would be able to take his place if he leaves. The Giver replies that she is too young, but that means when she is a Twelve, she could be the Receiver.
The sentence below (taken from Chapter 11 page 82) contains a simile. It is a
simile
because it compares the snowflakes on Jonas' hand to cold fur using the word like.
"He could see a bright, whirling torrent of crystals in the air around him, and he could see them gather on the backs of his hands, like cold fur."
This sentence (taken from Chapter 14 page 110) shows personification. This was when the Giver gave Jonas a memory of true pain. It is
personification
because flames can't actually lick your skin.
In his agony he perceived the word "fire" and felt flames licking at the torn bone and flesh.
