In "The Two Streams" by

In "The Two Streams" by Oliver Wendell Holmes, the repetition of sounds in the descriptions "sloping sides," "rushing river-tides" and "foam-flecked Oregon" are examples of which literary device used to provide imagery of nature?

Alliteration is what you call

Alliteration is what you call that literary device.

"I´ll go out in the FROSTY DARK."

Would this be an image??

Make it a little more descriptive

I'll go out into the frosty dark environment; the night sky black as the depths if the ocean and colder than a bucket of ice. that was terrible but something like that give it a little more.

It's a metaphor

Because it's implying that friendship is in the air, yet it's not, it means that free ship is all around.

What technique is this?

'friendship is in the air'

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 03/05/2016 - 07:29
Friendship is in the air

I would say a metaphor. This is because friendship isnt literally in the air (for obvious reasons) and a metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable. Hope this helped :)

Metaphor

Friendship is compared to air to show that friendship is everywhere, i just like air we see everyday. In another aspect, since we cannot see air but we feel and know that it's there, here we can imply that the voice uses imagery (tactile) to show that friendship is just the same as that (DO NOT TRUST ME)

I'm imagery lol

Yes it is mr imagery

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 12/01/2015 - 10:43
"is this imagery?" response

Yes it is, because the quote describes the object in a way that creates a mental image of this object in the readers mind. Specifically it would be considered visual imagery because the type of "mental image" it creates in the readers head is a visual representation of what this object looks like (rather that what the smell of the object is or the texture or sound, etc.). The specific "stained" and "rotting brown" gives specific visual detail on the object.
Hoped this helped!

( English has been on of my best subjects my entire life, so I'm pretty certain my answer is accurate)

Is this Imagery?

"Really?" I don't tell Sarah I lied yesterday. But I put the box of Frosted Flakes back in the cupboard and eat the Corn Pops instead. They're too hard and too sweet and too full of puffed air. I eat a whole bowlful and still feel totally empty inside.

HELP

Is this imagery?

"Hope no longer hid in the dark palmetto thicket but perched like a cardinal in the lacy toothbrush tree."

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/06/2015 - 16:55
Yes

It is imagery as you would be able to imagine how hope is perched like a cardinal. Also, there is a bit of personification as perching is something that a person would do

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 10/21/2015 - 03:20
NO

It seems more like anthropomorphism. Giving human or animal characteristics to hope which isn't alive.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/27/2015 - 14:56
Uhhhh... Kind of..

the thing about this is that it doesn't really describe what the scene is. It describes what he did, but it doesn't necessarily allow me to visualize it in my head. I am not an expert, but this seems to be some other device.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 09/21/2015 - 01:13
Is this imagery or is there a better literary device?

Rattled an entire magazine of ammunition.
We were all flat on the ground.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 08/21/2015 - 19:24
Yes

I see kids rattling magazines of ammo while laying flat on the ground
Or a gun and its rough power and forces pushing a magazine back and forth in a rattling motion while innocent civilians fall like a bag of potatoes on the floor. The eye inputs information and the brain translates it. That's how you see. Your imagery lacks information. It's an open interpretation

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 01/06/2016 - 17:44
is this imagery?

I believe if a pebble is thrown upwards
I can pierce the heavens
And see the angels at play

I think the last line can be..will it be ?

Best Website

it help a lot for my essay

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 08/10/2015 - 09:25
Help please

Is this imagery or...? I can't figure it out and it's really frustrating me:
"For three years, since that girl left, his front has been impeccable. Now it peels from his skin, leaving the truth of him at the wheel of the car."
The book I'm reading has a lot of these and I never know what type of language they are. Thanks if you help :-)))

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 08/10/2015 - 02:44
Thinking metaphor

I would need more context to be sure, but I'd call this either metaphor or synecdoche. His peeling is a representation of an emotional tearing, that this girl gets at his facades and leaves him bare.
