Irony

Could this be irony? That's how I would define it.

is this an example of assonance?

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to leave a path to trace?
Are you going to age with grace?
Only to wake and hide your face.

HELP!!!!

Age - grace (path - trace -->

Age - grace
(path - trace --> no /a/ sound in 'path' but is a similar low open vowel /ar/)
Age - grace
Wake - face

There is rhyming but assonance could be seen with the repetition of the /a/ sound in the above four words.which helps the poem's lovely flow.

no this isnt the example of assonance ...these are just the rhyming words... remember: if one sentence contains vowel sounds that would be an e.g of assonance..

ooh bastille

but no, it's not assonance. sorry.

poem help!

summer
spending most days with my feet submerged in sand, cant wait to go see the band

sky so blue and days so long it gives me time so i can enjoy it

summer
the ocean blue calling me as if we've never met

the soft breeze gently whistles through my hair

summer
skipping rocks on the ocean surface

biking along the Vinyard to see the fireworks display

summer no more classrooms, courses, and classes for now homework is done

resting on the shore waiting for the sun to change into its very own star
summer

help! i need to have the following in my poem and i'm really bad at writing poems
-metaphor
-simile
-personification
-alliteration
-assonance
-consonance
-repetition
-rhyme

HELP!

Is "I scream for ice cream" an assonance?

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 02/27/2014 - 06:14
hhhhmmmm

YES because its I SCREAM ice CREAM.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/25/2014 - 13:02
HELP!

Yes it is mate. But be careful with assonance as the words not only must have the the same vowel but same vowel SOUNDS. So the words "boot" and "No" Would not be assonance.

I need you- Aicia Keys

i need help finding literary devices for this song. Help?

The sand loves when the waves come
The sky can't wait for the light of the sun
So how could you look me in my eye
And not see what, what I feel inside?
Tell me, how could you doubt the fact that I
Love you, I love you

Dont you ever think like that
Dont you ever never do that
There will never be two things
That go together better than you and me

North needs south, east needs west
And no needs yes, yes, yes
Up needs down, life needs death
And no needs yes, yes, yes

I need you
I need you
I need you, you
I need you, hey

So how could you look me in my eye
And not see what, what I feel inside?
Tell me, how could you doubt the fact that I
I love you, I love you

Dont you ever think like that
Dont you ever never do that
There will never be two things
That go together better than you and me

North needs south, east needs west
And no needs yes, yes, yes
Up needs down, life needs death
And no needs yes, yes, yes

I need you, oh baby
I need you, every day
I need you, yeah
I need you, hey

I need you, I need you
Said I need you, baby
Like the desert needs the rain
Like joy needs pain, hey hey hey

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 01/20/2014 - 21:53
Answer

Dove
Above
Glove

Those aren't assonance, they're RHYME

Any word with the same "uh" sound you find in LOVE - that doesn't directly rhyme - would be assonant with LOVE.

Love, sup, bud,

I've got you under my skin

Can anyone help me out? Here are the lyrics to the great Cole Porter and Sinatra song. I need to find literary devices in this song and am at a blank. please help???
I've Got You Under My Skin
By Cole Porter

I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart
You're really a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I tried so not to give in
I said to myself this affair
Never will go so well

But why should I try to resist
When baby I know so well
That I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats, repeats in my ear

Don't you know you old fool
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality

But each time that I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin

'cause I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it yells in my ear

Don't you know you old fool
You never can win
Why not use your mentality
Wake up to reality

But each time that I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin

'cause I've got you under my skin
'cause I've got you under my skin

anaphora

repetition of same word at beginning of successive sentences

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 13:35
well

Lines 14 and 17 have end rhyme and so do 20 and 21, 22 and 23, 24 and 25 28 and 29
I'd sacrifice any thing repeats, wait actually that whole stanza repeats itself (chorus)>repetition
the whole thing in a way is an allegory (you can figure out what that means when you decipher the poem)
there is a whole lot of symbolism
there is a metaphor of a warning voice
there is also that motif (the main line)

literary devices

The poet has used Repetition in the following lines:
I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me

I would sacrifice anything
Come what might

He is so obsessed with his lover that it is conveyed through Repetition.
Both the lovers have become one and can never part, come what may!
That is the reason his love is so deep that he overlooks his conscience (warning voice) too which tells him that he will not win.
His love is too deep!

THERE'S NO IDIOM.

An Idiom is a figure of speech with a hidden meaning. E.G., Chill out, piece of cake, monkey business. Thanks.
