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! (Hopefully I'm posting in the right section this time, I posted in the math section last time. Oh geez, I got in trouble with some people!)

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

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, figures of speech (or, figurative language) is divided into two types: schemes and tropes. Schemes have to do with sound or arrangement, and tropes have to do with meaning. Most of the time when we talk about figurative language, I think we are thinking of the latter category. But, just to confuse the issue, different critics sometimes divide these up a little differently. Anyway, you are clear on what euphony and cacophony are as techniques of style. Just in case you'd like some more material on the overall picture, you might want to take a look at these -- http://schools.sd68.bc.ca/dove/teachers/rmckean/poeticmatters.html http://www.mrgunnar.net/ap.cfm?subpage=347181 http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/documents/Schemes_n_Tropes.pdf http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/tropes.html
