I wish she hadn't told me the story of the salamanders. I want to think it is her entering the world in a new shape. She told me that when she died, she wanted to be an animal in her new life.

no

Its a simile

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 05/24/2016 - 01:20
It's not a simile

It is not a simile as there is no comparison to anything nor does it use words such as, "like" or "as". However, I am also unsure as to whether it is an example of allusion

Is this a Allusion?

Your body lies upon the sheets
Of paper and words so sweet
I can't say the words
So I wrote them into my verse

as it is not mentioning a book or poem but it is stating that she would be written into a verse of a poem or book.

Allusion

Allusion uses a reference of historical events, art, music, prose, or other known thing to build meaning for the text's situation or event. T.S. Elliot uses it a lot in the Wasteland.

If you read the whole poem, you will see many references to history and art, Greek mythology etc. all used to represent the themes of the poem itself.

"April is the cruelist month." This is metaphor, similar to allusion. "King William Street,
To where Saint Mary Woolnoth kept the hours
With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.
There I saw one I knew, and stopped him, crying “Stetson!
You who were with me in the ships at Mylae! 70

That corpse you planted last year in your garden,"

There are allusions to Saint Mary Woolnoth, Stetson, ships of Mylea. You need to know about these, places people, and events. (Whuch for those who study Elliot had trouble)

A simple example, She behaved like Juliette and died." Allusion requires the reader to know a variety of things in music, arts, theater, history in order to gain meaning from the text they're reading.

For my example, you'd have to know of a famous Juliette that died, Romeo and Juliette. She didn't just die, she killed herself after her plan failed to escape with Romeo. The she, behaved like Juliette - the reader would have to know the play, understand the character Juliette, and what happened.

Uhh...

Yeah, I don't think so. This sounds more like some intricate metaphors that have been shaped into a poem. Allusions are usually referencing some piece of writing or story that almost everyone should know or has heard of (i.e.: the Bible, Greek Mythology, Superman, Shakespeare, Faerie tales, etc.).

mayonnaise travels through the cosmos looking for some bread to be spread on its grain and be eaten by the superior being and digested and then it will continue its journey after that to the next person.

is the sentence "Don’t expect one day to land in the Land of Oz and have the Wizard hand you a brain.” an allusion??????

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 06/29/2015 - 02:12
Definitely

Yes, of course that's an allusion! It's a reference to something well-known, at least I think well-known. Who hasn't heard of the Scarecrow's incident in Oz?

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 01/06/2016 - 03:17

Yes that sentence would be an allusion.

Allusion:

Refering to a thing, to make a connection, so the reader can better understand it.

any good allusions for divorce out there?

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 12/25/2014 - 19:15
Divorce

Divorce is a state of mind, much like a combination of salt and pepper. It is the acknowledgement that no matter how much or for how long you combine the two,, you can never create a new flavor..

Allusion for Minimum Wage

I am working on an argument paper and I am having difficulty finding an allusion for the argument minimum wage will be beneficial if they did not increase everything around us like fuel, groceries, etc.

Company store

In the early part of the 20th century miners were forced to buy from the company store with company script. However the price was always so high that the store would have to give credit, forcing the workers to continue to try to catch up. Wage slaves.
