Literary Devices Review Edgar Allan Poe uses the following literary elements to develop his sense of style within his writings. IMAGERY: Language that appeals to the senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, smell). Example: “the hinges creaked”. FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE: Whenever you describe something by comparing it with something else, you are using figurative language. • Simile: a comparison of two unlike things, typically marked by use of "like" or "as". Example: “much such a sound as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton”. • Metaphor: A comparison of two unlike things using the verb "to be" and not using “like” or “as”, like a simile does. Example: “He is a pig”. • Alliteration: Repeated consonant sounds occurring at the beginning of words or within words. Alliteration is used to create melody, establish mood, call attention to important words, and point out similarities and contrasts. Example: “hideous heart”. REPETITION: where words or certain phrases are repeated for a stronger emphasis by the author. Example: “louder, louder”.
New Literary Devices • GRIM HUMOR: topics and events that are usually treated seriously – death, mass murder, sickness, madness, terror, drug abuse, rape, war etc. – are treated in a humorous or satirical manner. Example: “I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him”. • SUBJECTS OF HORROR & SUPERNATURAL: intended to scare, unsettle, or horrify the audience. Historically, the cause of the "horror" experience has often been the intrusion of an evil—or, occasionally, misunderstood—supernatural element into everyday human experience. Example: “Death, in approaching him, had stalked with his black shadow....”.
