Paul Revere's Ride

By: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Imagery

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



Simile

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

Metaphor

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