Define peotic devices with examples ?

​​​​​​Dear Student,

A Figure of Speech or poetic device is where a word or words are used to create an effect, often where they do not have their original or literal meaning.

Then you may write a few types of figures of speech and give examples of each. A few have been provided for your reference:

Alliteration (use of the same consonant at the beginning of each stressed syllable in a line of verse)

Example: "furrow followed free"

 

Repetition (the repeated use of the same word or word pattern)

Example: "alone, alone, all all alone..."

 

Personification (representing an abstract quality or idea as a person or creature)

Example: “Out of the sea came he!”

 

Simile (expresses a resemblance between things of different kinds usually formed with 'like' or 'as')

Example: like a three years' child.” 

 

Irony (incongruity between what is expected and what occurs)

Example: “Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink.”

 

Metaphor (refer to something that it does not literally denote in order to suggest a similarity)

Example: "Was tyrannous and strong"

 

Imagery is a description which evokes readers senses of sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste. Metaphors and similes are also considered as imagery. 

For example, "I babble on the pebbles".

Regards.
