Ptak w Klatce: Elementy Literackie

Storyboard Description

Metafora, personifikacja, aliteracja

Storyboard Text

  • A metaphor is when something is symbolic of something else. The whole poem is a metaphor: the free bird represents white people, and the caged bird represents repressed African Americans.
  • Personification is when human qualities and actions are given to non-humans. An example of this is the line, "and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees." It's as if the trees are sighing in sorrow.
  • Repetition is when the poet uses the same word or group of words many times. One example of this is, "And his tune is heard on a distant the distant hill, for the caged bird sings of freedom."
  • "Caged Bird" Literary Elements
