Question and answer
write an essay in which you analyse the figurative language in a poem from the Raven.
Edgar Allen Poe uses different types of figurative language to take the audience on a journey through many beautiful words. [ Using comples pieces of literature, Poe places the reader on a path filled with twists and turns and never-ending possibilities. He reflects this in his famous poem, “The Raven”. Alliteration, rhyme, and symbolism play important roles in Poe’s writing of this popular American classic. Alliteration shows up many times in this poem. The line “And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain” shows onomatopoeia. By repeating the “s” continent makes a sound
similar curtains rustling. When Poe writes “Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;” the alliteration makes the words stand out. Alliteration helps highlight words. It also helps the poem sound more dramatic. The internal and external rhyme scheme of the Raven made it more enjoyable to read. In the line, “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,” the words dreary and weary rhyme. This poem is very well organized with words chosen very carefully making it smooth and easy to recite. These rhyme schemes help make the poem more interesting. Rhyme schemes also help Poe highlight key words that he wants his audience to notice. Poe had many rhymes in The Raven, yet he made it so the poem does not sound like a nursery rhyme or a children’s poem by using his very complex vocabulary. ]
