When I was a child the stones were living. Hot under my hand, they felt like flesh, and sands slipped through my fingers with a caress. Yes, everything was alive; the clumsy, roaring wind stepped on the flounched pink dress of the apple-tree, tearing it to shreds the puffed cheeks of clouds the brook with its pebbled tongue and the hoarse old grave old sea its gravelly song and eath itself a brown warm girl turning and tanning in the sun. All false, all wrong, somebody told me: winds are not lovers clumsy or gentle. There's no blood in stones, no tears in water. Nevertheless sometimes lately when I touch a chair or table I think I feel atoms stir under my fingers and at night in dreams I hear the small remote voices of grains of dust or the inaudible whispers of stars as they will speak to me some time when i lie with the living grass about me and the wind my old lover singing me to sleep and to wake
Hello Shay Welcome to OS, AS your new i would just like to say you have posted the question in the wrong place
Whoops, Im not sure where here is. What group am I in right now? This is a little confusing!
this is mathematics
Oh whoops! Definitely, not in the right section. Thanks for pointing that out lol!
it is confuzzling during the beginning but its a very helpful and nice place to be
I will help you but for next time please do remember
As you have already guessed personification
Okay, thanks so much!!!! I really appreciate it!
and the other two,
Please put this in the Writing section
Okay, I'm leaving. I'm leaving. Sorry! New here, I didn't even realize there were different sections!
@tic-tock I have told Her(im assuming) So from next time she will post in writing section
Yes I am a girl :)
Yes cocophony and euphonyy are present but they are a tpe of sound, not a technique of writing as far as i know
Are you aware of the type of poem? Also so you know all the techniques?
There is Hyperbole
sometimes lately when I touch a chair or table I think I feel atoms stir hyperbole here
I am not. All I was told is the name of the poem, which is "Is The Pathetic Fallacy True?" I do know a whole bunch of techniques, yes. Nice, I didnt notice that hyperbole. Thank you! Thank you for your help @SchoolSlacker. Sorry everyone else, I'm going to leave here and go to the writing section. I don't want anyone to get angry at me.
shay you may stay
i will answer the last one but if you have any other question related to writing/english they should go there
'pathetic fallacy' itself is a techniques as well
Okay thank you! So I did highlight some examples of cacophony and euphony in my copy of the poem (at least from what I thought), would you be able to tell me if I'm right? Cacophony: - Clumsy, roaring wind - Gravely song Euphony: - flounced - puffed - small remote voices - inaudible whispers
So, 1) Pathetic Fallacy Reflecting a character's (usually the protagonist) mood in the atmosphere or inanimate objects—for example, the storm in William Shakespeare's King Lear, which mirrors Lear's mental deterioration. 2)Hyperbole Exaggeration used to evoke strong feelings or create an impression which is not meant to be taken literally. 3)Personification Using comparative metaphors and similes to give living characteristics to non-living objects.
hmm give me a sec
Cacophany, A harsh, discordant mixture of sounds: "a cacophony of deafening alarm bells"; "a cacophony of architectural styles". Euphony, agreeableness of sound; pleasing effect to the ear, especially a pleasant sounding or harmonious combination or succession of words.
i dont think flounced and puffed are noises
Another thing you can do is, if the person's help was good then you can give them a medal via the good answer button (top-right of the box)
If you need anymore help just @SchoolSlacker me and i will come if im here :P but on the writing page, you can join another group via the join more groups button at the top you will find most subjects have a group
Thanks a ton for your help. Sorry about going AWOL on you for a couple of minutes there, My browser completely crashed because I have waayyy too many tabs open.
Hey Shay, because of the work that has gone into this answer by SchoolSlacker, I won't delete this post. However, I must ask you to post this in the correct group next time. I also ask that if any users see a mispost that they report it and not answer. A mod will come in and delete it.
Okay thank you, this was purely accidental I swear!
