Paul Revere's Ride

By: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Example: '' Beneath , in the churchyard,lay the dead,/ in their night encampment on the hill...''( Longfellow, 630).

This is imagery because it gives a lot of detail that makes you think of the dead people in their coffins on a hillside


Example: '' A phantom ship , with each mast and spar/ Across the moon like a prison bar"( Longfellow, 629).

This is a simile because it is comparing a phantom ship to a prison bar sliding


This is a metaphor because it is comparing two unlike things in which one thing is said to be the other
