Best Answer

A figure of speech is just language in a figurative or non-literal sense. E.g. Metaphors, similes, and personification. There is a lot of personification in the poem. (Personification is attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something nonhuman.)
1) "To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells"
2) "By the sinking or the swelling in the anger of the bells"
Analysis: The author gives nonhuman objects human characteristics such as anger.
