Figures of speech – Sunrise on the Veld

Posted: 16th June 2017 by dallen in Uncategorized

Personification – The grass stood on its shoulders. How can grass stand without any legs or feet.

Paradox – Dogs running free. The dogs are not free it may appear that way but in all reality the canines are under the control of their master, who in this case was a 15 year old boy.

Hyperbole – I could walk forever and never tire. This what he thinks but he cannot walk for an eternity and if he can why does he need to sleep. Why doesn’t he go to the woods earlier.

Simile – The marbles he had, represented the years that had past.

Metaphor -The boy kicking sulkily at the skeleton
