    "A Valentine" by Edgar Allan Poe 1.For her this rhyme is penned whose luminous eyes, 2.Brightly expressive as the twins of Leda, 3.Shall find her own sweet name, that nestling lies 4.Upon the page, enwrapped from every reader. 5.Search narrowly the lines!—they hold a treasure 6.Divine—a talisman—an amulet 7.That must be worn at heart. Search well the measure— 8.The words—the syllables! Do not forget 9.The trivialest point, or you may lose your labor 10.And yet there is in this no Gordian knot 11.Which one might not undo without a sabre, 12.If one could merely comprehend the plot. 13.Enwritten upon the leaf where now are peering 14.Eyes scintillating soul, there lie perdus 15.Three eloquent words oft uttered in the hearing 16.Of poets, by poets—as the name is a poet's, too, 17.Its letters, although naturally lying 18.Like the knight Pinto—Mendez Ferdinando— 19.Still form a synonym for Truth—Cease trying! 20.You will not read the riddle, though you do the best you can do. Which of these devices does Poe use in lines 17-19? Simile Metaphor Hyperbole Alliteration
