    Third Reading

    • As you read through the poem again with your partner, use your redpen to underline any use of figurative language. Write down what type it is when you find it next to the example.

    • When you find a simile or metaphor, underline it and then CIRCLE the two things are being compared.

      • For example:

      • “The moon was a ghostly galleon”

        • moon is compared to ghostly galleon

    • “His hair was like mouldy hay”

      • hair is compared to mouldy hay.

    Quote from the Text

    in MLA Format:

    In the text it states, “quote” (author’s last name and page number).

    What literary device is being used in this quote?

    Explain in literal language what is meant by the literary device: what is being compared, what does it literally mean?

    Based on the use of this literary device, how would you explain the effect it has on the meaning of the text?

    In the poem it states, “The wind was a torrent of darkness” (Noyes).

    Metaphor

    The author is comparing the rushing wind to how incredibly dark it is.

    The author is describing the conditions of the night in which the Highwayman rides: it is an unsettled and mysterious night, like the love between the highwayman and Bess.
