Walt Whitman’s ‘Animals’ uses a number of literary devices. The first line starts with a paradox. Following that, the poet employs personification to portray animals with human attributes. The usage of a repetition at the start of consecutive lines is done for emphasis. The word “sick” has been used as a metaphor.
