Storyboard Text

  • Simile
  • *Knock, Knock*
  • Metaphor
  • Personification
  • Nevermore
  • A simile is a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing. For example, in The Raven a simile is used when the narrator says, "Suddenly there came a tapping as if someone gently rapping, rapping on my chamber door."
  • A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action. For example, in The Raven a metaphor is used when the narrator says, "And each separate dying ember wrought it's ghost upon the floor."
  • A personification is the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristic to something nonhuman. For example, in The Raven the raven says "Nevermore." and since animals can't speak this is giving a human attribute to a nonhuman thing.
