And looked at me vaguely as

And looked at me vaguely as drinking cattle do,
And flickered his two-forked tongue
From his lips, mused a moment,

what is the literary device used in these lines?

I see two-three

There's a simile in the first sentence and there's an alliteration in end of the third sentence. The 2nd sentence could possibly be a metaphor , i'm not sure.

Simile

I can only see a simile (given that my knowledge on this topic isn't very vast)
The 'as' in the 1st line shows us that the poet is comparing the snake's action to that of a lazing cattle.
Any sentence with the words 'like' and 'as' that is comparing the similarities between any two things is a simile (and it's a metaphor if those two words aren't there)

That's wrong. It's how much

That's wrong. It's how much wood would a wood Chuck Chuck if a wood Chuck could Chuck wood?

No

How much wood would a Woodchuck chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood?

As much wood as a Woodchuck could chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood.

Help

By Tom Petty

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Chorus
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Is there any literary device in this?

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/29/2013 - 23:17

Question

Correct me if im wrong, but isn't the sound at the end or the middle of a sentence another type of literary device?
If it is, what is it called?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 02/19/2013 - 01:32
RE: Question

You may be talking about the Literary Device "Assonance," which is the repetition of sounds produced exclusively by vowels within a sentence or phrase. For example, "a long song," in which the "o" vowel sound is repeated.

A peck is an imperial and

A peck is an imperial and United States customary unit of dry volume,[1] equivalent to 2 gallons or 8 dry quarts or 16 dry pints. Two pecks make a kenning (obsolete), and four pecks make a bushel.

In Scotland, the peck was used as a dry measure until the introduction of imperial units as a result of the Weights and Measures Act of 1824. The peck was equal to about 9 litres (1.98 Imp gal) (in the case of certain crops, such as wheat, peas, beans and meal) and about 13 litres (2.86 Imp gal) (in the case of barley, oats and malt). A firlot was equal to 4 pecks and the peck was equal to 4 lippies or forpets.

Similar device

What would the literature device be if it were the sounds... Such as the verse in Pink Floyd's song time where he says "kicking around, on a piece of ground, in your home town"
Obviously they're all rhyming words but they are in the same line I was wondering what the equilivant of alliteration would be

What a gem of a website!!

I listen to talk radio all day long and kept hearing the talk show host/s once in a while starting a phrase with "anecdotally speaking", blah blah blah.

So I found this website through Google, ( number 1 and 2 ranking by the way!!) and looked up what an anecdote was as I had forgotten what all the literary devices were!

Thanks to the webmaster/owner of this great site!! I will tell folks about it!
