  1. Shakespeare’s Language Tricks

  2. Personification: “The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night” Metaphor: “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs” Simile: “So tedious is this day as is the night before some festival to an impatient child” Classical allusions: “She’ll not be hit with Cupid’s arrow. She hath Dian’s wit” Reversed word: “upfill” Inversion: “Under love’s heavy burden do I sink”

  3. Experiment with Shakespeare’s language tricks. Write an original example of each type of language trick. Personification: the sun Metaphor: love, hate, or family Simile: This day or Going to or going from school Classical Allusion: yourself, or a friend, or an enemy. (keep them annonymous!)

  4. Robinson’s examples Personification: “The jovial sun warmed the children in her arms.” Metaphor: “Family is a knot created of love but tied with dreams.” Simile: Going from school is like a prisoner released from the gallows. Classical allusion: Bob is as smart as Polyphemus and as strong as Argos. Reversed Word: Inversion: The burrito I did eat.
