Personification and Hyperbole

Personification is when an object or abstract ideas are given human qualities or human form.

Example:

The tree danced in the blowing breeze.

Its branches waved a hearty hello.

The wind whistled as it picked up speed.


Laughing Song

By William Blake

When the green woods laugh, with the voice of joy

And the dimpling stream runs laughing by,

When the air does laugh with our merry wit,

And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.

When the meadows laugh with lively green

And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene,

When Mary and Susan and Emily,

With their sweet round mouths sing Ha, Ha, He.

When the painted birds laugh in the shade

Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread

Come live & be merry and join with me,

To sing the sweet chorus of Ha, Ha, He.


Hyperbole
Hyperbole

  • Hyperbole is an exaggeration or an overstatement.

  • Examples:

    • I was so hungry I could eat a horse!

    • I had aged five years before the speaker had finished his boring tale.
