I'm not sure if I understand what Cacophony and Euphony are, can someone help me understand please? For my assignment, I'm supposed to find 3 different Figurative Language (Techniques) in this poem: (posted below in a comment!) One of them is obviously personification. I thought that there was also cacophony and Euphony present, but I'm not sure though. So it would be wonderful if someone could help me understand what they are!

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

anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
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.

'pathetic fallacy' itself is a techniques as well
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.

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.
