As Katniss gathers the flowers to decorate Rue's body, Collins (the author) depicts her "covering the ugly wound. Wreathing her face. Weaving her hair with bright colors." Katniss observes "she really could be asleep in that meadow after all" (Collins 237). The rhythmic quality of Katniss's speech here, infused with alliteration, again reinforces her wistful, lyrical tone--that Rue who loved music in life, should be honored with music in death.


Robert Frost’s “Mending Wall”:
“And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the
wall
between us once again.
We keep the
wall
between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.”

WALL has a dictionary meaning---A continuous vertical brick or stone structure that encloses or divides an area of land
And set the
wall
between us once again.
We keep the
wall
between us as we go.
Is this a REAL WALL?
But a lot of people call him my little brother cause he needs
looking after cause he’s not quite right. And a lot of smart mouths
got lots to say about that too, especially when George was
minding him. But now, if anybody has anything to say to
Raymond, anything to say about his big head, they have
to come by me.

EXAMPLE FROM "RAYMOND'S RUN"
Raining cats and dogs
Example of allusion
T
he Hunger Games
is really one huge allusion
to the Roman Empire.
The Games themselves---

The Roman Colosseum as we know it was started by the emperor Vespasian and finished by his son Titus Flavius in 80 A.D. It soon became popular for its spectacular gladiatorial games, animal fights, and even its mock sea battles when they would actually flood the arena and bring in ships.
How the rebellion started---

Katniss sparked a rebellion by defying the Capitol in the Games the same way the gladiator Spartacus sparked a rebellion by escaping from the school where he was being trained in Capua.
The nation of Panem---

Panem is very similar to the cultural perception of how ancient Rome was throughout its history, despite the fact that it was not always ruled by debauched emperors. There is the Capitol, which is rich, decadent , and has a complete stranglehold over the outlying districts.
The names---

One look at the names of people in the Capitol screams, “Hey! This is like ancient Rome!” Cinna’s name comes from none other than Julius Caesar’s first father-in-law. Octavia was the sister of Octavian, the first true emperor of Rome, who later became known as Caesar Augustus. Flavia is the feminine form of the family name Flavius, which means ‘blonde’ or ‘golden’ in Latin. At the end of Mockingjay, we learn that Katniss’ doctor is named Dr. Aurelius, as in the philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius.
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called,”

Juliet is indirectly saying that just like a rose
that will always smell sweet by whichever
name it is called; she will like Romeo even
if he changes his name.
An advertisement for a food product for children that espouses that "Moms who love their children, buy [name of product]" uses rhetoric by persuading parents that not buying that brand of product may imply they do no not care as much for their children.
