Two Figures Of Speech In Edgar Allan Poe's Poem "the Bells"?
I am having trouble finding two figures of speech in "The Bells" by Edgar Allan Poe. If anyone could point them out to me that would be great. Thanks for the help. I will be sure to give who ever point at least two figures of speech out 10 points.
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.
