swallowed by a shark.

Ex. To act or not to act, that was Maria's dilemma
A figure of speech in which
something is described as though
it were something else

Ex: He is such a pig when he eats!
The use of words that imitate sounds

Ex: The buzz of the bee was very loud. Pop,
zoom, splat, whoosh
A type of figurative language in
which a non-human subject is
given human characteristics

Ex. The tree waved excitedly in
the wind.
A figure of speech that uses like or
as to make a direct comparison

Ex. My love is like a red, red rose.
Repetition of sounds at the
end of words

Ex. Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you
Pattern of beats or stresses in
spoken or written language

All around the room
I hear the music play
It takes control of the children’s feet
And makes their bodies sway
The feeling created in the reader by
a literary work

Sad, Excited, Joy, Laughter, Hatred
so many that we can't list them all.
Any feeling you have can be a mood
A word or phrase that appeals to
one or more of the five senses

Ex. Daffodils by William Wordsworth
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way
But what are literary devices?
A Literary Device is a writing technique which
produces a specific effect.

Literary Devices Song

Let's have a little fun with
literary devices!
