This storyboard does not have a description.
"His wife was standing in the middle of the kitchen watching the stove busy humming to itself..." -It is personification because stoves can't actually hum to themselves
"In this case, however, the room has become a means of creating destructive thoughts..." -This is an oxymoron because create and destructive are opposite. (create is to make and destructive is to destroy)
"And now the sounds: the thump of distant antelope feet on soft grassy ground, the papery rustle of vultures." -It's Onomatopoeia because it uses words like thump and rattle to describe sound.
