1. Simile– Simile is a direct comparison between two different things using words ‘as’, ‘like’ and ‘so’. E.g. I wandered lonely as a cloud
2. Alliteration– Alliteration is the repetition of a sound at the beginning in syllables of nearby words. E.g. Beside the lake, beneath the trees.
3. Hyperbole– Hyperbole is an exaggerated statement. E.g. When all at once I saw a crowd, Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
4. Personification– The attribution of human characteristics to the inanimate objects E.g. Fluttering and dancing in the breeze, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance, Out-did the sparkling waves in glee
