    1. Simile– A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things. Example- “as close to one another as the nail to the flesh”
    2. Alliteration– It is the occurrence of the same sound at the beginning of closely connected words. Examples- “division and duality”, “division and disorder”, “vibrating, your vision”, “while watering”, “ransack and ravage”
    3. Inversion– It is a change in the expected word order. Examples- “Friends and mates who shared your woe, like parts of your own heart/ How could you tear their hearts to pieces, you blood-thirsty man!”, “Your own home you ransack and ravage and tear apart”
