Simile- Kynedy Rosalez:)

SIMILE

A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things through some connective word usually being "like" "as" "than".

Example: "Of course he wasn't a crazy crazy like old Miss Leedie,who was in love with President Wilson and wrote him a letter every day,but was a nice crazy,like someone you meet in your dreams." ( The scarlet ibis)

PERSONIFICATION

Example:"The last graveyard flowers were blooming,and their smell drifted across the cotton field and through every room of our house,speaking softly the names of our dead." ( The scarlet ibis)
