Storyboard Text

  • Simile 
  • Imagery
  • Metaphor
  • "A phantom ship, with each mast and spar/Across the moon like a prison bar," (line 20 -21 ).
  • Personification
  • "And lo! as he looks, on the belfry's height/A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!/... A second lamp in the belfry burns." (line 68-72).
  • Alliteration
  •  flying fearless and fleet
  • "The fate of a nation was riding that night;/ And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight,/ Kindled the land into flame with its heat." (line 78-80).  This metaphor  describes Paul Revere as the fate of a nation and illustrates that his ride  helped  ignite the Revolutionary War
  • Allusion
  • "And the meeting-house windows, black and bare,/ Gaze at him with a spectral glare," (line 97-98). These lines are personification because the windows of the meeting-house do a human action, such as glare,  even though they are inanimate objects.
  • "Struck out by a steed flying fearless and fleet," (line 76). The words flying, fearless,  and fleet all begin with the same consonant sound, meaning that this is alliteration.
  • "And the meeting-house window, black and bare,/ Gaze at him with a spectral glare,/ As if they already stood aghast/ At the bloody work they would look upon." (97-100). This references the Battle of Lexington and Concord that happened soon after Paul Revere's ride.
